..a refugees article..
« on: January 11, 2018, 06:04:53 AM »
.
just read an article that showed the 10 states that have allowed the most refugees "in" - Kalifornia (of course) was #1 at allowing the most.....but I was surprised that good old Texas was #2 - WHAT ?

also surprised that there are 2 states that do not allow refugees - but the big surprise there is that one of them is Hawaii - Hawaii being the most vocal about immigration of all the states - pure b.s. IMHO (the other with "no refugees" is Wyoming)

most or all the rest of the top 10 were NE blue states, no surprise there.....

Most of the refugees coming to Texas seem to be yankees headed south.
A well balanced breakfast, being necessary to the health of the nation, the right of the people to keep an eat cereal shall not be infringed.  Now who gets the ceral, the breakfast or the people?
Sure I'll shoot your Glock.  Just hang it with the rest of the targets.

Short walk Across the Rio Grande from Mexico so yeah we have more than our fair share. However I do recall hearing about some “refugee” sights being established in S TX to house these folks.

"Refugee" is a legal status, resettling displaced persons after some declared malady in their home country.
Texas has numerous organizations, likely because of those walking north, that have facilities for housing refugees.
And it turns out, you can make money at your Church Camp, YMCA facility, etc housing them....
From a federal perspective, I believe it's virtually impossible for a state to say "NO", but then a state like Hawaii could easily keep such facilities out by the facilities charging very high prices per person per night.

About 3 years ago, that POS Gov wolf we got who was sponsored by hilly, bummer & bloomy, said he was going to bring in 100,000 somalian muzzies into PA..

Our "R" controlled House and Legislature  told him " No he was NOT, and he was trying to operate several levels ABOVE his pay grade". 

Thank God they stood up to the turd.
Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often, and for the same reason.

There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".

Well, any man that wouldnt cheat at cards for a poke, dont want one bad enough. " Gus".
