Arizona Found Simple Method That Is Sending Refugees Fleeing From Their State

Published

on

Various news outlets are running a story about how bad things are for Somalian refugees in Phoenix Arizona. The refugees are complaining that after waiting for six years in a refugee camp, they arrive in the United States only to find chaos surrounding the Trump administration’s attempt to block Somali immigrants like them from entering the country.

One particular family even explained that they stopped in Houston only to be transferred to Phoenix. Now they are stranded in the urban sprawl without a car. They go on to claim that they have no way to get groceries or go to a doctor. But what they complain about the most is that they don’t know how they will pay the rent after their initial U.S. taxpayer handout comes to an end.

Here is more on this via The Phoenix New Times:

“Contrary to popular belief, refugees who are resettled in Arizona receive relatively little financial assistance from the state. In fact, their main source of cash assistance is the federal government.

Like all refugees arriving in the country, every individual who’s resettled in Arizona receives a one-time payment of $925 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. That typically covers their rent in Phoenix for three months, Sheikh says. Larger families receive more money, since the payments are per-person, and sometimes are able to stretch it out to last for six months.

“If that money runs out and they don’t have a job, then there starts to be pressure for them to find a way to survive,” Sheikh says. “There’s not a lot of programs to help them with employment here.”

Meanwhile, assistance from the state is restricted to what Sheikh describes as “limited medical services” and food stamps.

“The one thing that Arizona does very well is making sure that at least these families will not go hungry,” he says. “But sometimes these families don’t get enough help — they come in saying, “Oh, my food stamps have stopped,’ so we have to call DES and ask them why.”

Refugees have to complete a monthly report proving that they are taking English classes and looking for jobs in order to keep receiving food stamps. But language and literacy barriers often get in the way.

Sometimes, Sheikh says, refugees will receive a letter from DES letting them know that they need to take specific steps in order to keep on receiving their food stamps. But because they aren’t able to read the letter, they aren’t able to act on it.

Caseworkers for the nonprofit agencies that work to resettle new refugees are often overwhelmed, he adds. “They’re limited in the amount of aid that they can provide.”

But the biggest challenge is finding a job, he says. When he first arrived in Phoenix, he was able to find a job at Sky Harbor International Airport and work his way through ASU. Other Somalis have followed a similar path and found jobs at the airport. But many others have found that even jobs cleaning hotel rooms or washing dishes in a restaurant come with a requirement that applicants speak English — or, unofficially, Spanish.

That means that the refugees who were already relatively well-off back in Somalia and had the opportunity to study English there end up having an easier time getting hired in the United States.

“The people that struggle the most are people who have no educational background,” Sheikh says. “They’re the people most in need, and they face the biggest hardships when coming here and trying to find opportunities here.”

Recently, he’s gotten calls from recruiters working on behalf of Amazon warehouses in Minnesota and Kentucky, looking to hire managers who speak Somali in addition to English.

That tells him that they’re hiring a lot of Somali refugees who don’t speak English yet, he says. He’d like to see the same thing happen in Arizona, where, to his knowledge, only a handful of refugees have been able to get jobs at Amazon distribution centers.

But, he acknowledges, “There’s only so much that one company can do. There has to be support from the state.”

For one thing, he believes that refugees need more time to adjust before the government cuts them off entirely. Three to six months — the amount of time that refugees typically have before their cash assistance runs out — is not long enough for them to adapt to a new country and learn to speak English. And it doesn’t help that many have escaped civil war and famine to get here, and are deeply traumatized or simply tired.

After those three to six months are up, Sheikh says, refugee families end up getting evicted because they’re not able to make rent. The Somali Association of Arizona tries its best to help them out, with support from the local Muslim community.

“So far we haven’t had any refugees become homeless, that I know of,” he says. “Most of the time, they say they have family in Minnesota, they can find jobs in Minnesota, so we fundraise to help them get a ticket to go there.”

The real issue here is that they want taxpayer money, but wisely Arizona gives them very little over what the feds give them in terms of assistance. These people claim to be refugees but they come into our country, bring their culture which they were forced to run away from and now complain that Americans don’t give them enough money? Don’t like it? GO HOME!

Arizona is being very smart here. Look at what Somali refugees have turned Minnesota & other places into. Americans are now afraid to walk the streets in some areas that have been invaded by Somalians because they can be mugged or beaten at any time of the day. Of course, politicians who let these people into our nation have no problem since they never have to live there or even need to see these people again.

It’s time the U.S. says enough. This shouldn’t even be a partisan issue anymore. And if bleeding heart liberals want to take refugees into their own homes, they should be allowed to. It’s their home, but don’t force the rest of us, sane people, to have to deal with cultures that obviously aren’t compatible with American customs.

Honduran Migrant Caravan EXPLODES As it Approaches Border

Amazing how this happens mere weeks before the midterm elections.

Time to put military on full alert and stationed at the border. This is an invasion and needs to be stopped in its tracks AT the border.

Stop the invasion!

From The Gateway Pundit:

On Wednesday, the caravan of mostly Honduran migrants exploded to a whopping 4,000 people as it approached the Mexico-Guatemala border, despite President Trump’s warnings to cut off U.S. aid.

The Mexican government flooded the Mexico-Guatemala border with hundreds of police officers in anticipation of a stand off with the migrants.

President Trump meant business when he issued a strong warning to Honduran President Hernandez Tuesday over the migrant caravan marching northbound to United States.

The organizer of the caravan, Bartolo Fuentes was detained in Guatemala Tuesday and it was reported Honduran migrants had splintered off into smaller groups in order to travel undetected as they made their trek to the Mexican border. Reuters reported late Tuesday that some Honduran migrants had headed back to Honduras, however; it appears the caravan has grown as it make its way through Guatemala.

The Associate Press reported Wednesday that the Hondurans were spotted in Chiquimula, Guatemala marching through rain, determined to make it the Mexican border.

Because the migrant caravan has grown to over 4,000 people, the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 police to its border with Guatemala, reported NBC News.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be traveling to Mexico on Friday to discuss plans to stop the caravan.

A caravan of migrants fleeing Honduras has grown to 4,000 and the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 federal police to its border with Guatemala in anticipation of their arrival, according to U.S. government documents obtained by NBC News.

Part of the caravan, which has split into two groups, is now approaching the Mexico-Guatemala border amidst a surge in border crossings on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to Mexico to meet with his counterparts on Friday, where plans to stop the caravan will be a “prominent” topic of discussion, according to a senior State Department official who spoke to reporters on Wednesday.

“I am certain that there will be conversations in Mexico about how we can work together on this issue,” the official said about the caravan. “We are certainly looking for concrete results and for solutions that work for both countries.”

President Trump didn’t even wait until the caravan of Hondurans reached Mexico before issuing a very stern warning to the Honduran president on Tuesday threatening to cut U.S. aid immediately!

The President’s fury continued into late Tuesday evening as he fired off another pair of tweets putting Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador on notice.

Anyone entering illegally will be arrested and detained prior to being sent back to their country, President Trump said.

Democrats Just Announce Sick New Way They Plan To Dominate GOP In Midterms To Regain Control

Yet another perfect example if the tyrannical nature of the democrats. They can’t win by the rules, so they change the rules. Dishonest, lying, cheating, thieves. All that party is.

We must vote in November. Stop the democrats!

From The Daily Wire:

When all else fails, change the system.

Leftist luminaries, who weren’t able to stop the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, suggested in the aftermath that Americans should consider reforming the Senate. Reminded that expanding the Senate would require a Constitutional Amendment, they’ve now, apparently, resorted to “reforming” the other half of the bicameral legislature, the House of Representatives.

NBC News reports that some Democratic activists are suggesting that to even out the “balance of power,” the size of the House should grow as much as double its current size.

“Expanding the House of Representatives would be a vast improvement over the status quo — with the potential to impact all branches of government,” activist Steve Vladick opines for NBC’s “Think” platform.

“[C]hanging the size of the House of Representatives — from its current total of 435 seats to 650 seats, or one for every 500,000 constituents — would make that body far more reflective of the country at large; would dramatically affect presidential elections; and, perhaps alone among all of these proposed reforms, would most be in keeping with the wishes of the Constitution’s drafters,” he continues.

Vladick argues that “changing the size of the House of Representatives would make that body far more reflective of the country at large” by narrowing the size of Congressional districts and limiting district size based on population. In most cases, that would involve halving districts.

But it’s not clear how having more districts with fewer people makes the House more representative, since House members are duly elected and, in most cases, making the districts smaller wouldn’t improve a member’s ability to lunch with every last one of his or her constituents.

What it does do, however, is help the Democrats remain in control of one house of Congress at all times by giving larger cities and their immediate metropolitan areas (where there are bigger populations in smaller areas) more seats. Unless large cities with high populations switch to the GOP in the near future, Democrats would hold the clear majority in the House ad infinitum.

So really, the House would become “more reflective” of … Democratic strongholds.

Tricky, tricky.

Unfortunately for Democrats, none of these proposals — expanding the Senate, packing the Supreme Court, or doubling the size of the House — are likely headed for approval.
