Will this madness ever end? The OD article says that this region is PROUD of its immigrant population. Tell that to local hospitals,businesses and schools who have to find translators for over 100 different languages now "proudly" spoken in Utica. The article goes on to mention that a majority of these new Congo refugees are considered "high need- single mothers with many children" (who will IMMEDIATELY go on public assistance and stay there for generations while they continue to breed like rats.)

Why dont they just have a 'time out " period of about 20 years before they bring in any more survivors from the worlds scrap heap.
This is NOT a racist post, but one of sanity and realism. These idiots are not thinking of long-term repercussions. Just keep shipping in as many different cultures, with absolutely no job skills or education,none of who speak English, then stand back and watch the fun!
enough already

I agree. When is enough enough? These people contribute nothing to society, if anything being it down and we are left with the bill. My family came her from Italy in the 50s on thier own without assistance from the government and contributed to society. My father was a skilled blue collar laborer. I'm all fine with people not having college degrees- but when you don't even know a simple skill to survive what good are you? My family integrated with society and was proud to be American. These refugees will not be learning English or etiquette of western society. I'm not sure who's running the refugee society and what they have to gain. In fact I bet these African refugees will be on public assistance for generations and thier many offspring will become small time thugs.
People always complain about Bosnians but at least they are go getters and try to integrate and have jobs and prosper. These Africans just learned that electricity existed the other day an still comprehend what a chair is used for

look at the people who run the immigration center. Bunch of liberals who reside in New Hartford,Clinton,Kirkland etc. Why don't they dump these liabilities on those school districts. Nope,they dump them in Utica so their own kids won't have to deal with the trash from third world countries. Utica has done it's share. Let someplace else take them.

Excellent point. Many countries do not allow you to immegrate there unless you have a skill the country needs, such as Mexico. What's wrong is we bring them here, teach them to be dependent with all our welfare benefits, then they'll never get off public assistance as they'll take what comes easy to them. Everyone in our society needs to work and contribute. If they don't it creates all kinds of social problems.

The Federal Government sends the refugees to the most distressed areas in the country. This is because these counties don't have have the financial and political clout to keep them out.
good point

I have high regard for many immigrants such as the Cambodians who come her as skilled laborers or small business owners and work for the American dream. But dumping more non tax payers and uneducated refugees into a strained school district that can't provide services to the average student will end up hurting all.

What people don't realize is that NYS is held hostage by the Federal Government financially /extortion is what it is actually. Our politicians rely heavily on the fed. for the money they need for there progressive programs , state pensions etc.
I'm sure this isn't news to most people.
