But, of course, they are not resettled in the better (wealthier) neighborhoods!
Thanks to a reader for sending the mayor’s declaration reported here at Frontpagemagazine, but there is more as the mayor who in 2015 asked then President Obama for 100,000 Syrians to be admitted to the US.
A Syrian refugee resettled in 2016 was arrested for plotting to bomb a poor “multicultural” church that was the church home for African migrants from Nigeria according to several news accounts.
I wouldn’t even be bothered telling you about Mayor Peduto’s defense of refugees that have swamped ‘welcoming’ Pittsburgh in recent years if it weren’t for the fact that Peduto was one of 18 mayorswho penned a letter to President Obama in 2015 insisting that the US must take in 100,000 Syrians in 2016. Obama was proposing 10,000. Text of the letter is here.
I think some of you in refugee overloaded states might like this news!
And, native New Yorkers might see this as a great time to pack up and head south for lower taxes and more pleasant weather (many have already!).
The State of New York is actively luring refugees from other states and officials there claim cities are dying and they need low wage workers (and more ethnic groceries and craft shops!) to stop the slow bleed from their decrepit cities.
And, who is going to pay for all of the ‘services’ New York state is offering refugees to move there (called secondary migration in the refugee industry).
No one has ever given me a good argument for why certain struggling cities can’t just be left to die!
When I saw the story yesterday I realized I know this guy!
I wrote about him over a year ago being arrested with CAIR’s Nihad Awad and Linda Sarsour at a Capitol Hill demonstration sponsored by our old pals at the refugee contractorChurch World Service(which I happened to write about yesterday before I saw the hubbub about Omar Suleiman!).
Editor: I’m going to be gone for a few days, so trying to get a couple of posts up this morning for you before I dash!
Frankly I have never bought into this idea that we have to continue to import millions of people to America every year to prop up dying cities and the Chamber of Commerce.
Does anyone ever ask what the longterm costs are of ‘welcoming’ third world poverty to impoverished cities?
There is all this talk (as in this latest from Pew) about how they fill houses and apartments that would have otherwise been vacant, and that they supply low wage workers for global corporations (can you say BIG MEAT!).
But, what are the costs to the federal taxpayer as you will see obliquely mentioned in this latest prescription? And, what are the costs to our uniquely American culture?
Maybe dying cities are dying for a reason! Maybe we should let them die (the buggy whip analogy)!
But the assumption always is—-accckkk! We can’t let that happen!
So we have the Dems teamed up (these cities are all Democrat-run and “new Americans” vote for the D’s) with the big corporations and the Chamber of Commerce merchants begging for more refugees and immigrants of all strips!
