Here's an example of what "refugees" can expect to receive.Ohh so the refugees came with money? Interesting lolLewiston Maine WAS a milltown until all the mills closed and the city was on its last legs, losing population, poverty level skyrocketing, until 7,500 new people moved into town and gave it the huge boost it needed. It works so well in Lewiston, our governor is encouraging as many as can make it here to come. Yes, she is.Lewiston Maine, a one thriving mill town is now a welfare town. As the factories closed many families moved many stayed and accepted benefits. As word got out Africans decided to jump on this opportunity, so by the thousands they moved in, immediately causeing Trimble, taking welfare destroying the school system.
They brutality jumped a 10 year old girl, they killed a white man. They have taken Over a park threatening natives not to enter. They wear hoodies trying to intimidate the locals.
When will he have merit based immigration to help this town?
Lewiston has an extremely low violent crime rate, way below the national average. I have shared these stats with you in another thread. You are smearing a town that is trying to get back on its feet and you are slandering the immigrants who have settled there. They are completing high school at higher rates than the "natives," and they are attending college, working in the community, becoming part of the town. There will be a few "they's" in any group. Adolescent boys congregating in "gangs"--ever heard of that before?
They didn't move here because of welfare benefits, folks; they moved here because they met such hostility down in the state where they had come originally. They have not turned it into a violent crime ridden town. Catholic Charities had a lot to do with helping these folks get settled, learn English, find work. I have a friend who worked for them there at the time. She said they did "beautifully." She was there, on the front lines.
You really are doing a major disservice to Lewiston and to the Somalis. Shame.
NO THE TOOK BENEFITS FROM THE LOCALS WHO ARE STRUGGLING.
How many non English speaking kids are to many for a struggling school system? Do you have a number?
And crime has sky rocketed +7.5
This culture has not assimilated they HAVE TAKEN OVER A PARK.
So again how many poor can’t assimilate people can a poor town take in? Do you have a answer?
Do you know how many of the thousands of Somalians have received welfare ? Yes or no
