Election throws US plans for Syrian refugees into question

RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) — Arabic language classes are drawing 25 to 30 people a week in preparation for the new arrivals in town. High school students are helping collect furniture and housewares for them, and employers have inquired about giving them jobs.

For the past several months, Rutland has been getting ready to receive 100 mostly Syrian refugees beginning early next year. But with Donald Trump taking office in late January, Rutland’s plans and those of other U.S. cities that have agreed to take in people fleeing the civil war have been thrown into question, given the incoming president’s hostility to Muslim immigrants.

“I am not even going to hazard a guess” about the fate of the program, said Mayor Christopher Louras, who invited the newcomers in the hope they can help revitalize this shrinking, post-industrial, heroin-plagued city of 15,800.

"..given the incoming president’s hostility to Muslim immigrants.."

Wow. No bias there.

The MSM don't even pretend anymore, but it seems odd that they recently admitted their strong bias. It makes me wonder why they admitted it-- maybe just a phony show of remorse because they got exposed so badly.

Oh well.. on with the show.

Why not give that collected furniture to USA citizens....the poor and/or homeless. And those jobs, how about hiring USA citizens that are unemployed. Why would you treat immigrants BETTER than needy citizens????? I just don't understand.............

I can honestly say to them right to their face, I don't want you here! We can't even employ all Americans, and support the freeloaders we already have, we don't need more! Go to a nice Muslim country and live, not here!

Any town that welcomes them needs new leadership. Needy Americans need to be taken care of first.

Deception, Lying and Taqiyya.
Muslim scholars teach that Muslims should generally be truthful to each other, unless the purpose of lying is to "smooth over differences."
There are several forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, the best known being taqiyya. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause of Islam - in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.

Quran (16:106) - Establishes that there are circumstances that can "compel" a Muslim to tell a lie.
Quran (3:28) - This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to "guard themselves" against danger, meaning that there are times when a Muslim should appear friendly to non-Muslims, even though they should not feel that way.

All the satans worshippers will be very happy in san fran.

Mayor says he hopes they help revitalize the town. They come with nothing; they have to be given everything for which they pay nothing. And they are going to revitalize the town ?? What an idiot.

NO refugees-period.

Those same dumbaces will walk right by a homeless American or a pregnant woman with no place to go or a veteran sitting on a park bench with nothing to eat.
But they will go all out for some muslims who travel 4000 miles to find someone who will give them a house, a job, food, medical care, and money.
People who, several months ago were shouting "death to America!" and plotting to kill Americans. Now they have their hand out. TO AMERICANS.
F them.
Find a job in Somalia. Kill some people over there. Blow some kids up OVER THERE.
Or, put them up next door to the politicians who want US to take a chance with our lives.

Those idiots only have to look at what Angela Merkle has done to Germany and they will see what IS going to happen here. Hopefully Trump can slow it down but I think it is too late to completely stop it.
