Iowa jobs programs for refugees could cost state taxpayers hundreds of thousands
Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 4, 2016
The story is from the Des Moines Register today (hat tip: Joanne).
Hey, folks in Montana and Wyoming, listen up! When the wannabe refugee contractors tell you that the refugee resettlement program for your state will cost your state and local taxpayers zip, zero, nada, refer your elected officials to this article about the need for a jobs program and more “services” for the 10,000 refugees who have been placed in the state. (Apparently the meatpacker employers don’t pay enough!)
$350,000 is being sought from the state legislature to help fund RefugeeRise and it’s “advocacy” efforts on behalf of (mostly Burmese?) refugees who don’t have enough “services.”
Of course, the first question I have is where is the refugee resettlement agency that placed them in the first place, aren’t they already being paid to help refugees get “services” and jobs?
RefugeeRise appears to me to be yet one more taxpayer-funded subsidiary of an expanding refugee industry.
This is, after all, an industry!
