Fargo, ND poll: Most citizens do not want more refugee resettlement

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 4, 2015

But, almost more interesting to me (in this news account) was the fact that the local CHAMBER OF COMMERCE hosted the event to try to convince the citizens there that they are wrong.

Readers, if you don’t know it already—The Chamber of Commerce throughout America is FOR more migration to America and lobbies FOR amnesty and obviously is now openly out in front promoting more refugee resettlement.  Can you say cheap immigrant labor!  And, look at the Republican members of Congress and Senators who are wimps on immigration and you will likely find the Chamber behind them (and funding them!).

From the Grand Forks Herald (emphasis is mine):

FARGO — The head of the nonprofit agency tasked with resettling refugee groups in North Dakota gave a presentation Tuesday hoping to dispel misconceptions about refugees.

“Today, we are going to be clearing the air,” Jessica Thomasson, CEO of Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota, told a crowd of about 200 people at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Fargo.

Among the notions that Thomasson sought to debunk was the idea that refugees are responsible for increases in crime. “We know there is no correlation,” she said, citing a study that showed: “Immigrants are less likely to commit serious crimes or be behind bars than the native-born population.”***

Thomasson, whose talk was hosted by the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce, said the U.S. Department of Homeland Security screens refugees before they enter the country. “The United States has as one of its policies that we don’t resettle people who have been aggressors in the conflicts,” she said.

Thomasson’s talk came at a time when refugee resettlement is a hotly contested issue in North Dakota, which leads the nation in refugee resettlement per capita.

The day before Thomasson spoke, Valley News Live aired the results of a poll the TV station commissioned. Of the 625 adults surveyed in Cass and Clay Counties, 57 percent opposed the continued resettlement of refugees in the area, 28 percent supported it and 15 percent were undecided. The poll had a margin of error of no more than 4 percentage points.

***Update***  Here are the survey results.  And here is my post on the poll. And, one more update here—“myth” about free cars explained.

Go here for all of our previous posts on North Dakota.  This post is filed in our ‘Pockets of Resistance’ category, here.

By the way when you check our archives on North Dakota you will see several horrible crimes committed by refugees there—the one that jumped out at me was the Somali mass murder of native Americans, here.  Then there was the “hatchet man”….

    What a lying sos. Perhaps she missed the fact that the “student” at U of C – Merced who was stabbing people with a big smile on his face was named Faisal Mohammad. Gee, now what reason would this “student” have to stab 5 people? Hmmmm. Can anybody guess? (While the LE dupes and the enemedia are still scratching their heads trying to figure out his motive!) It wouldn’t have anything to do with JIHAD, would it?

    Why don’t we ask individual Chamber of Commerce leaders these questions?

    Is there anyone among the supporters of a One World Government who can tell us what this one world order will be like? Perhaps we should start to talk about the One World Order which is the cause of these efforts to mix races and make everyone in the future brown. What will life be like when Whites are a minority and there is no more Western civilization? Will there be food on grocery shelves or will there be hospitals? Will there be rule of law? In South Africa the blacks can’t even keep the power on, does that matter to anyone? What will happen in places like Ferguson when the EBT cards run out?

    When I see some brown people I can’t figure out – is this person Asian? No perhaps he is Hispanic? Wait a minute I think he is part black? No he is definitely an Arab? Is this what we want for our futures? Ask the White man at the Chamber of Commerce.
