I've heard various reports of this story... does anyone know exactly whats going on? I heard that thousands of (possibly middle eastern) immigrants will soon be coming to Utica via the refugee center. Is this true? How many? When? From where?

I have read that the State department has begun allowing more refugees from Iraq to start entering the country. It would seem that this destitute area would be the place that they would be sent - it would probably seem very much like home - note Sunday's shooting on Miller. It also seems to me that if these people had any backbone that they would stay in Iraq and fight for their own future. Our troops are dying so that they can come to this country. Heck a few murders and shootings haven't driven me from this third world city.

No, our troops are dying so Bush and Cheney and their Saudi friends can get even richer. The Iraqis just like us were safer before he became President.

I would love to comment on this but I must go to bed and get my rest so I can get up and go to work tomorrow. If I didn't work I couldn't help support all those poor refugees and lazy asses on welfare.
