It's curious the way people here use the words immigrant and refugee interchangeably. Do you know there is a difference? Or is it an intentional misuse of words to make your case stronger? If so, you have no case.

Frankcor tell me why are you so pro refugee? Explain to me how it benefits CNY and taxpayers? Please elaborate how raising the population on public assistance benefits American society?

Refugee by no means benefits Oneida Co. Utica, Or New York State. They come to Utica NY, Right from the start, Welfare, Food stamps, WIC. H.E.A.P. Housing. Does not matter how many Members are in the family, 2 to 8 or more. TAX DOLLARS
It cost New York State Tax dollars for the programs.

Oh so wonderful, That more and more working people are moving out of Utica, selling their homes to anyone who will buy it,( slumlords )
so the working class can have a safe place,School, for their family.
I think what you mean is a chance for a tax base handout, But soon New York State will be low on welfare money, Cause so many working class people are moving out of NYS for state with a lower tax base.

Yeah the benefit is they're warm bodies with incomes. Doesn't matter that that income is supplied from the state and federal government it's still income. Utica sells this crap as being culturally diverse while its actually nothing more than leeching to keep utica alive. It's sad when you need to pay the poor from other countries to live in your craphole city. Take away the refugees and utica wouldn't have 30 thousand people living there.

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.
This is true. Also, some countries require that you have money when you arrive..I think you have to prove that you have at least $10,000 if you try to emigrate to Canada.

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

Well said. The only immigrants I see working are Bosnians and Orientals. When was the last time you encountered someone in a burka or hijab in a workplace environment? And to top it all I read recently that the women of these cultures feel that it's an honor to present their husbands with at least ten kids.
