Remaking Rutland with Refugees

[Here is an article about a plan, kept secret from the people of the town, to relocate a lot of muslim migrants to the area. It was kept secret because the mayor already knew that the public would not want the fundamental transformation, to borrow a phrase, of the area that this plan means.]

The character of the city of Rutland, Vermont is facing major change.  Nestled in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont, it is an unsuspecting city targeted for refugee resettlement.  After being kept in the dark since their mayor’s unilateral decision to accept 100 Syrian and Iraqi refugees in October, Rutland citizens should investigate the threatening impact that refugee resettlement has on their own public security, economic stability and community health before it’s too late.

The city of Rutland was chosen as the site to place refugees by the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), one of the nine major federally-funded refugee resettlement contractors or voluntary agencies (volags), and its local affiliated field office or subcontractor, the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program (VRRP). According to Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch, once a site is chosen for resettlement, the agency submits an annual resettlement plan to the State Department in order to receive federal funding of nearly $2,000 per refugee sponsored in addition to federal grants of up to $2,200 per refugee sponsored.  Refugee resettlement has become a billion dollar industry, according to investigative journalist James Simpson, a former economist and budget examiner for the White House Office of Management and Budget.

In rational times, this should have led to a burning down of city hall.

  1. The email waid that if the hearings were held the anti-immigrant people will come. In other words we are the elite and we have to do what we know is best because the others are too stupid to know what is best for themselves.

    • Yes, you have to admire her directness, at least. She said something at the end of the piece about it being a good thing that the issue was not put to a vote. Yeah, input from the voters and the general (dirty, ignorant …) populace – who needs that? She would be right at home in a nice sterile, air conditioned office in Brussels; maybe that’s what she’s angling for.

      • The left thinks that they have beaten down the US population to the point that all we will do is run our mouths and let them destroy the US.

        • Other than the emergence of Trump, I see no indication that that isn’t exactly what has happened.
          Think about it for a minute, we are now expected to allow male perverts into female bathrooms with the threat of gov’t power to back this up.
          At the Trump rally last night the left were throwing lighted projectiles at our police horses! And do you know what my first thought was? Why didn’t the horses have those clear eye shields on. I am pathetic…

  2. Amazingly arrogant and dismissive. Smirking contempt. Every day the news gets worse, still no accountability. For years Vermont was quite conservative, now, it’s chock full of New York and Cambridge leftists and they are in positions of power. This video demonstrates the problem.

    • Absolutely true, I live in Boston and can vouch for that. It’s the northern suburb of the People’s Republic of Cambridge. Beautiful state, it’s a shame.

      All the granola-crunching, ugly sandals-wearing, hairy-underarms, yech.
      Opinionated losers with trust funds “found” Vermont. They’re Bernie-the-Commie Sanders voters.
