My question is -what does the city of Utica get for allowing all of these refugees to come here? There has to be some type of pay off. If the city gets any money from the federal government then they should have to provide our school district with so much per student to help pay for their education and all the extras they need. I can't wait until these students are held accountable to the common core. Say goodbye to all the teachers and the school as they will be blamed for their students lack of knowledge.

The time has come for Utica to stop this stream of refugees coming here. We have enough of them here already. All they do is drain our social services of tons of money. Our city cannot afford all of them any more. Who do we complain to?

You should start with any of your friends or relatives who don't have roots in another country. Seriously, form an alliance of non immigrant Americans. I would join you but My Grand Parents were ALL immigrants.(btw i love the way you "agree" with your own post)

The Refugee Center employees want to stay employed and keep their homes on the outskirts of the city(away from the imports) so they keep petitioning U.S. Immigration Services for more and more refugees. Write to Immigration as well as your Congressman and tell them how you feel. Tell them we are a poor community that is overtaxed and completely drained by the burden of these people. Tell them enough is enough.

Yes we are all from immigrant families unless you are a Native American. But when our grandparents came here they had to be sponsored by a family that guaranteed that they would have a job. They did not live on welfare. Plus they tried to assimilate into the new culture by trying to blend in and learn the language. The new round of immigrants want to keep their traditional dress, language, religion everything the same except carrying a brand new snap card. I'm all for people coming here but some kind of quota should be set. Utica has enough of them and our schools are hurting.

It's a little cruel of you to wish for the failure of the kids. In order to blame the teachers. All so you can say I told you so.

Dear brown trout. I'm not wishing for the failure of the students so the teachers can be blamed. I don't know how you derived at thinking of that from what I wrote. What I'm saying is they are using up a lot of our school districts money due to the special services they must receive. Our district has no place to obtain all the extra money needed to pay these costs. A quota is needed on the number of immigrants coming here and being sent to our schools. If utica is receiving federal grants to take in these people then our school should be able to receive money also.

They're not non-immigrants, just white people who want their "America" back. That means before the black president. They all feel like they are owed something. Always worried about what somebody else has and always feels slighted. "It's not fair."

Shut up.

It cost 7 times less to teach gorillas and low tech rashes then any other, as they just become criminals or live on topix saving the gorillas cuz the gorilla is the only thing can can stand a rash.
