When is this city going to wake up and stop bringing these refugees into this city. They call it the Mohawk valley refugee center, send these people to new hartford and see what happens. They don't become citizens, they live off ssi, ssd, welfare, then they break the law and disrespect law enforcement, I say if they are not citizens of the US, break the law, deport them

New Hartford doesn't need the guaranteed income the refugees bring in like utica does. Without the refugees uticas population be down by half. Enjoy.

What is the guaranteed income that Utica taxpayers will receive?

Federal money for housing. State money for unemployment, food stamps, job search assistance...when should I stop because the list goes on and on. Do you really think all of these refugees are picking off of a map to move to utica? Yes nations worldwide and their citizens are saying let's move to utica! Lol!

OK now tell me how this income benefits the City of Utica?

How does this income repair city roads, fix sewers, maintain parks, help our school system, create a better life for the residents.

I see this income you talk about benefiting outside Utica more than inside Utica. The wages that are paid to the employees that distribute this income mostly live outside of Utica.

"New Hartford doesn't need the guaranteed income the refugees bring in like utica does."

Your statement says it all, this is the attitude that is destroying OUR region. You are willing to be paid to pretend to care about people but are not willing to live near them. My definition of a self-centered snob.

Ok well I don't live in your region so let's get that clear. The refugees that are pumped in have guaranteed government assistance that utica can leech from. It's who's living in the homes no one else will. That guaranteed money is then spent in that cess pool and taxed. It's a pretty simple equation. Without this pumped in supply of people and money the city would be dead. There is absolutely no movement into the city of utica except the refugees. Zero.
