Immigrants put increased demand on public safety staffing. If you cut them back we could make staffing cuts and save money

A great source for information on refugees being resettled in the US is:
You will find that the only people not benefiting from the refugee resettlement scam are the hardworking taxpayers.

It’s really happening.
After four years of waiting and wondering whether SUNYIT actually would get the multimillion dollar nanotechnology complex promised by state officials in 2009, ground is being broken at the site.
Not by politicians with spotless shovels, but by real workers with heavy machinery.
The $125 million Computer Chip Commercialization Center, known as the Quad C, is expected to be completed by the end of 2014, said Alain Kaloyeros, senior vice president and CEO of Albany’s College of Nanoscale Science and Technology, which is partnering with SUNYIT in the venture.
The annual operating budget is expected to exceed $500 million, he said.
“Residents will see new opportunities to build high-tech careers in their own backyard,” he said.“Business owners will find new clients and customers. And the quality of life — including the arts, recreation, entertainment and shopping districts — will reflect a new vibrancy that will benefit the entire community.”
Officials close to the project have hedged about how many jobs there will be, but in a previous announcement, when the project was expected to be smaller, there were set to be about 900 jobs.
Quad C is being funded through a public-private sector partnership and is linked to Albany’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering. The chips that will be researched and developed at SUNYIT will be used in everything from phones to medical devices.
“It’s the foundation for a lot of good things that are going to happen,” said Steve DiMeo, president of Mohawk Valley EDGE economic development agency.“It’s going to change the dynamics of the regional economy.”
Becoming a reality
In a region that has been burned before by promises from the state and other economic development boondoggles, many were skeptical of the 2009 announcement.
And for a period, their fears appeared to be warranted: When it was first announced, the project was expected to cost $45 million, bring 450 jobs and be complete early in 2013. Despite a ground-breaking ceremony in the fall of 2010, however, no construction started.
Then, in 2011, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced another $45 million for the project and upped the number of expected jobs to 900.
Still, nothing materialized.
Finally, in early May of this year, SUNY officials said the project had grown in size and scope and would now cost $125 million. And as June progressed, trailers began to arrive at the site and preliminary construction begun.
Kaloyeros said he understands the area’s skepticism, and that people in the Albany area also had doubted nanotechnology initiatives there would materialize and grow.
