"They’re running out of places to put them.”REFUGEE PUSHBACK GROWING IN MULTIPLE STATESMinnesota governor: Unhappy residents 'should find another state'
It was standing-room only at a council meeting in semi-rural Pickens County, South Carolina, Monday night, as residents flooded the chambers, many of them interested in one topic – the potential of Syrian Muslim refugees being resettled in their county.
On Sunday in Twin Falls, Idaho, more than 100 people marched through town with signs and U.S. flags, protesting refugee resettlement in their town and demanding that a local community college shut down its resettlement office.
On Oct. 6 in Redlands, California, a woman affiliated with a local tea-party group stood up at a city-council meeting and voiced her concerns about possible Muslim refugees being injected into the community from Syria.
In St. Cloud, Minnesota, a group of concerned citizens became visibly upset at a townhall last Tuesday when Gov. Mark Dayton announced that anyone who is not comfortable with that state’s growing diversity, including its expanding Somali refugee population, “should find another state” because Minnesota’s economy “cannot expand based on white, B+, native-born citizens. We don’t have enough.”
Dayton said he was aware of the racial tensions in St. Cloud with regard to Somali refugees.
“If you are that intolerant, if you are that much of a racist or a bigot, then find another state,” he said, as reported by the Daily Globe. “Find a state where the minority population is 1 percent or whatever. It’s not that in Minnesota. It’s not going to be again.”
The “experts” from the Muslim community are likely to be affiliated with the Council for Islamic-American Relations or CAIR, a Muslim civil liberties organization with ties to the international Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.Raines said she believes many refugees from Muslim-dominated countries will not assimilate well into American culture. “Muslims are using Christians as a way to infiltrate, using our good nature, our Christian values, using that against us,” she said.√ http://www.wnd.com/2015/10/refugee-pushback-growing-in-multiple-states/
