Americans, even on the Left, are rejecting the resettlement of Muslim economic migrants, most of whom are not real refugees, especially in towns with struggling economies. FIVE-TERM Rutland, Vermont Mayor Christopher Louras lost his reelection back in March after a year-long scandal related to the importation of Muslim refugees.
BT.com (h/t kafir) Starting in late 2015, Louras schemed for six months with his state’s private refugee contractor (the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program, or VRRP for short) to initiate a refugee resettlement program in his city. He did this without alerting either the city’s board of aldermen or the citizens themselves. Only when the deal was sealed did he announce that Rutland would be taking in 100 unvettable Syrian Musim refugees in the fall of 2016.
Apart from their specific concerns about Middle Eastern migrants who may sympathize with jihadists — or even be jihadists themselves — people were taken aback by the mayor’s secret maneuvering and flagrant disrespect for the board of aldermen, which by law must be included in any such proposal, along, of course, with the citizenry.
The larger concern was the brand new refugee resettlement office planned for Rutland. Once centers are established, they can only survive by annually bringing in at least as many refugees as the prior year. Call it a kind of zero-based budgeting as applied to the refugee resettlement process.
The result is an endless flow of bussed-in outsiders that increasingly overwhelms city services. Moreover, once a refugee community is established, the resettlement contractors urge them to apply for relatives, who can then be resettled anywhere within a 100-mile radius. These contractors drool at the prospect of all that federal money.
A hundred may not seem like a lot in Boston or New York City, but it is significant in Rutland which had a population of around 16,000.Louras was beaten handily.
Dr. Tim Cook, a five-tour Middle East war veteran and highly-regarded local physician, went on Fox Business on Jan. 4 to summarize the case he had been making against the refugee resettlement plan that Louras had fancifully claimed would bring in big bucks to Rutland. Cook returned to Fox Biz yesterday to reiterate those points and discuss the election outcome (below).
Needless to say, when Cook and others told the truth about the Louras scheme, city residents were justifiably outraged.
