Utica is the Refugee Center of the World

So when will this city finally say enough is enough and it's time we stopped placing the burden of supporting refugees on the tax payers? People don't realize how big of a negative impact this has on the area and nothing has been done to stop it. Aside from the federal funding the city and county receives for harboring all these future terrorists, what benefit do they bring? And why after 20 years can't they be placed somewhere else with a more stable economy? Does placing hundreds of refugees yearly in one of the poorest cities in America make much sense?

These refugees are not the same as the immigrants that came to this Country to work and make a better living for themselves. There's far too much unknown about them. Why does Utica have to keep being the hub for them? The impact they have here is far more than meets the eye.

Our school system has continued to plummet. And stocking classrooms full of 40+ children (half whom don't speak English) is only half the reason why. The crime has increased and gangs are also forming amongst these refugees as well. What business are they bringing to the area besides opening up bodegas and other stores ran in bad faith completely ignoring laws and regulations? Better yet, what's the value of your property in Utica looking like? It's decreased every year because nobody wants to live in the City of Refugees. The only home owners left in Utica are the adjunct landlords making money hand over fist renting these homes for federal dollars. So while the officials here continue to brag and tell you about all these great things happening in the area, ask yourself this. What positive can be happening in an area if there's still no jobs, taxes are raised unethically every year, the school system is failing, half the county is on welfare, and your property value keeps decreasing?

So my question to all fellow Utican's is when will be put this all to an end and get our city back? The only people we have the blame is ourselves for letting thus happen now we're the only ones that can fix it!

Unfortunately without the refugees utica would probably have a population closer to 40k. It's a necessary evil to fund all those public servants bloated salaries and pensions.
