Is immigration an issue of LIFE? It is an issue for many people that live here, pay here, and vote here to give everything they have worked for their entire lives to immigrants. Why else would they come here if it weren’t for something they can’t get from home? Remember to thank Mr. Obama for allowing millions of immigrants, legal or not, to take advantage of free college, free loans and even free property for showing up in America. Obama is not alone in thinking our future is ‘imports’…many others in government think that a sagging economy will benefit from having millions more immigrants that are jobless. Seriously.
As I’ve mentioned many times in my past articles, I do not spout off without having experienced it, which I will impart a bit at time within this article – ‘seen it with my own eyes’, as it were in Dayton, Columbus, Dearborn and Detroit metro. Interestingly, we didn’t see much of this in the South or West.
Are people immigrating for freedom? Maybe, but I challenge everyone to consider the obvious: While we have our own homeless, we are allowing immigrants to show up and take housing and food and money from people that are in IMMEDIATE NEED that are American citizens.
Immigration has been a huge problem in the United States of America particularly when a Liberal is in office. And it’s way worse in the Midwest because liberal state and city governments are vying for the immigrant….yes, I said VYING. Why? Because of a slumping economy, they feel that this demographic is going to pump up the jam. No, really.
Even in my shrinking town of Dayton, our Mayor has made it his mission to lure Muslim Turkish immigrants to the city of Dayton. I’m sure you’re asking why…I did, too. Apparently government officials like the Mayor believe we have to import impoverished Muslims to redevelop parts of the inner city because no one else wants to live there. And by ‘no one else’ I mean middle class whites and blacks. They have left the city in droves, much like in Detroit, Cleveland and others in the MIDWEST to escape an escalating crime rate and bad schools. Even with cheap rent, who wants the crime that goes with it…is it worth it? When the inner city goes down, so does the public schools…when schools are shuttered, WE GOT PROBLEMS.
Mayor Gary Leitzell of Dayton said Turkish immigrants bring “new ideas, new perspectives and new talent to our workforce…..to reverse the decades-long trend of economic decline in this city, we need to think globally.” One has to wonder if he really loves these people or wanted free labor to fix up a falling down depressed Dayton. Either way, this does NOT help our city; it makes it worse for those that already live here. Dayton’s unemployment is over 10% and the median income is under 25K. We don’t need more immigrants that are opening businesses with our money to serve their own people and not the population at large. We have enough smoke-shop/hookah/Obamaphone shops, thank you.
“We want to keep our roots, our culture, while at the same time integrate into the American community,” said one such Turkish immigrant….so did many in Dearborn, Michigan which now recognizes SHARIA LAW. Dayton is quietly close as well.
Has Muslim immigrants posed crime problems? When my husband ran a store in a not-so-good part of Columbus, he had a gun put to his head TWICE demanding money…they were both Somali Muslim immigrants…TIP OF THE ICEBERG, wouldn’t you say?
Recently, 18 vacancies in an apartment complex in Columbus had well over 1000 Somali immigrants show up for applications for subsidized housing….1000+. They parked on lawns, blocked driveways, yelled at and intimidated neighbors to get to those apartments where at least 75% of the residents are Somali. Local police had to use pepper spray to try to disperse the ‘crowd’. Hassan Omar, who leads the Somali Community Association of Ohio (a NON-profit), said that most of those who showed up were Somalis because ‘news spread quickly through the Somali community’. “We have thousands of people desperately in need.” THOUSANDS…..IN OHIO. Because the ‘news spread quickly through the Somali community’ for these apartments, other qualified families could not get near there because the Somalis showed up as early as 6am to keep other American CITIZENS away. Here in Ohio, we have MANY families that need housing like this in order to not be homeless and immigrants are given access first. Obviously, news leaked out to a segregated group of people and this is ‘FAIR HOUSING’??? See video here.
“Napoleon Bell, executive director of the Columbus Community Relations Commission, said he plans to meet with local immigrant and refugee communities and talk about what police officers and firefighters do so they’ll feel more comfortable around them.” Interesting….let’s teach them how to be around authority figures? I don’t find that amusing; I find that scary.
According to the Somali Community Association of Ohio’s web site, over 45,000 Somalis live in Ohio. Only 40 percent have become citizens of the United States, and only 25 percent speak English well enough to get a job. And apparently, THEY VOTE: “Another source who also wishes to remain anonymous has seen Democrat interpreters show the non-English speaking Somalis how to vote the Democrat slate that they were handed outside. According to this second source, there are not any Republican Somali interpreters available” AND “another volunteer has witnessed Somalis who cannot speak English come to the polling center. They are brought in groups, by van or bus. The Democrats hand them a slate card and say, ‘vote Brown (Sherrod Brown) all the way down’.” Also know that in order to vote in O***, you essentially only need to breathe…nearly anything can show you as a ‘resident’.
THIS IS A MIDWEST STATE? And I think to myself, we actually moved back here to O*** with hope in our hearts to find that this demographic has propagated almost overnight to exclude those that are actually feeding the system FOR THEM? O*** has many citizens that are hungry, homeless, shoeless and hopeless. Let me ask you: WHO DO WE FEED AND HOUSE FIRST?
