There is an extremely interesting blog written by a woman from upstate New York.
The blog is written as a warning about what happens when Muslim refugees begin to “take over” a city. The city she is speaking of is Utica, New York. From Thermidor:
I’m from the Utica, NY area. Utica is the city nicknamed by the UN “the city that loves refugees!” Soon every American city will be a city that loves refugees! Get ready! So I would like to tell you what it is like living in an area where the major city is about 25% (or more) refugee, mainly Muslim.
It seems odd that so many refugees would be shipped there. It’s hardly a place where one would expect them to be able have opportunities for jobs that they are eventually expected to hold. Not to mention the climate is completely different than what they are used to. She goes on:
Where do I start? Utica had always been “the city that loves refugees” but under Obama things accelerated. Muslim immigrants were suddenly in these local bureaucratic positions where they had power over you. This, in what is probably one of the most corrupt states in the union, where the power of the state is everything.
The social worker at my daughter’s school was a Muslim immigrant. I looked for her profile on the school website, I googled her, I could not find information on her background, resume, qualifications, or educational attainments.
When I began to homeschool my daughter the administrator to whom I had to submit paperwork was a Muslim immigrant. To homeschool in New York State you must submit detailed quarterly reports to an administrator at your local school district. I googled the administrator. He also worked at the local Board of Cooperative Educational Services, but I could not find any other information on his background, resume, qualifications, or educational attainments.
It makes sense that if the Muslim population increases, so too would their employment in the city. At least these people are working. It would be interesting to see the percentages based on the total breakdown of immigrants vs. natives in the grand scheme of things. Regardless, the difference to her was remarkable:
So let me just summarize: the social worker at the school is Muslim, the administrator who ok’s homeschooling is Muslim, the CPS worker is Muslim, the nurse practitioner at the ER is Muslim, the doctor at the ER is Muslim. These are positions of authority that wield a lot of power.
She also makes a stunning revelation that may be worth investigating further:
The Upstate New York economy is one of the worst in the country. That’s why it’s a good place to resettle refugees.
She also talks about how many of the refugees get welfare but they don’t have to get it for themselves, because the refugee resettlement organizations do that for them. Meanwhile, Americans who may need help are shifted to the back of the line because refugees are in the front of the line.
The point that many on the left have forgotten is played out in the following way (emphasis added):
New York State sued our local school district for trying to separate teenage refugees from the rest of the students. I went to a CLE where I sat next to a lawyer for the school district, and she was freaking out over this lawsuit. She was like, The state is coming after us, and we don’t have any money. My county is a Democrat county, and Trump won my county. Issues like this are why. Americans can see that they are being forced to accommodate non-Americans to their own detriment and expense.
Her entire blog is worth the read. If you haven’t dealt with this situation, then it’s interesting to see it from the standpoint of someone who has, someone who is daring to speak out now that she finally fled the area. If she had dared to speak out while still living in the area, she would have been called a racist, an Islamophobe, and a hater.
How many more rural cities and towns are dealing with this exact same issue? How many Americans are being affected by refugees in ways that a majority of us do not understand?
While you may think she’s exaggerating, you have to take a step back and view her world in Utica from her eyes. Whether she is or not, her perception is what is important. The treatment of Americans by the government in these situation is also vitally important. This is real. It’s happening. It’s why Donald Trump was elected.
