When is this going to stop and how do we go about stopping it? For the last 15 years the City of Utica has been bringing refugees here by the busloads at the taxpayers expense. Oneida County has reported that 50% of the population is on public assistance. I can assure you that at least 95% of that 50% are refugees, if not more. Our taxes continue to climb here at unjust rates for being a homeowner and our county tax is neck and neck with NYC. Our gas prices remain one of the highest priced in the Country, businesses are moving out left and right, and our school systems are failing us. When and how do we get this to stop? I'm all for helping, but I think we've done more than our fair share here in Utica to help refugees and the unmotivated piss poor to get on their feet. Our working middle-class has suffered enough here to continue paying to relocate refugees here at our expense, when the middle class can barely make ends meet in Utica.

Agreed. Our county legislaters should help stop this. Oh according to the OD Look at those who don't go to 36 to 55 5 of meetings. If they can't do the job , step down.
