Holy cows! This guy is an Obama stooge. I stay away from Columbus because it is a dump and soon will be just like Detroit, thanks to Coleman and the dimwits who keep voting for him.

Then he can pay for them out of his own pocket.
I support legal immigration within the current laws - that is all.
We do not make them up and ignore them as we go along.l

Thanks to anti-White racist and radi8cal socialist Coleman, Columbus is no longer a Cow Town, It is now The Cow Dung Capital of the Midwest. Nothing but leeches have come to Columbus from the other other continents. As I and many other middl;e class residents leave not only Columbus, but Central Ohio, Columbus will become another Detroit - a third-world city populated by third-world people.

Coleman is as crooked, underhanded, and dirty as Obama. And as destructive.

I'm sure the native Americans feel the same way about you - and who could blame them.
These posts make me embarrassed to be an American.

My question is, are there any initiatives to educate immigrants of our customs? Many times a friend of mine has encountered potential customers who push the Sharia, "no interest" rule in regards to a major purchase. We pay interest, so should they. Are our businesses, banks and finance companies supposed to give their money away for free to them because of their religion?
I used to work for a social services agency and we had to replace our chairs in the lobby because Somali women would not use feminine protection during their time of the month. We replaced comfortable chairs with plastic ones that could be easily cleaned. What about the working poor Americans that really cannot afford healthcare yet a lot of immigrants, even illegal ones receive Medicaid? These are just a few of my observations. My ancestors came from Scotland and Germany, learned English, worked hard and did not expect anything to be given to them. I welcome any foreigner who comes here and does the same. I find other cultures fascinating, we can learn from each other but in coming to the US, respect us and our traditions - including our flag.

Coleman has opened the doors to the illegals and other very questionable trash. He said it was for economic growth and diversity. How do welfare recipients promote economic growth? Taking well-paid employees out of work and hiring the illegals at a lower pay? What is the diversity? More people from filthy villages creating filthy neighborhoods in Columbus?

Hope the Columbus, OH taxpaying residents make enough money to support the non-economic and diversification Coleman wants. He keeps beautifying the downtown area. But the rest of the town looks like a ghetto and it will get larger.

By the way, how's the murder rate, muggings, home break-ins, drug activity, prostitution and rape statistics going for you? Are you people ready to be like Chicago, Detroit, etc.? That's what occurs when you vote for a socialistic, liberal Democrat. Enjoy the rotten fruits of your votes!

Immigrants in many cases means terrorist as is currently happening with the Somali population in Minneapolis with two Somali Muslims returning to fight for Islamic State. End the refugee program, end the terrorist recruitment program.
Muslim immigration needs to end now.
