Springfield, Mass mayor blasts Jewish Family Services for placing more refugees without notice

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 11, 2017

They (Jewish Family Services) are concentrating “poverty on top of poverty!”

(Mayor Domenic Sarno)

 

We told you about Democrat Mayor Domenic Sarno a few years ago when he asked the US State Department to place a moratorium on refugees being deposited in his beleaguered and over-loaded city.  Of, course he was ignored as mayors have been ignored in Amarillo, TX, Lewiston, ME and Manchester, NH.

His pleas to the Obama State Department were ignored, will Tillerson’s agency treat him better?

He has common sense and he has experience on the receiving end! http://www.theblaze.com/news/2016/11/28/at-least-1000-veterans-descend-upon-college-to-protest-american-flag-removal/

So this past week he learned that Jewish Family Services was quietly placing more refugees in the city and he came out firing with both barrels!

‘Enough is enough’: Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno critical of new ‘influx’ of refugees to city

SPRINGFIELD — Mayor Domenic J. Sarno, after learning that several refugee families are expected to arrive in the Springfield area this week, has renewed criticism of local resettlement agencies, saying “enough is enough.”

In a prepared release, Sarno raised a series of questions about the arrival, saying he had received no advance communication from the Jewish Family Service of Western Massachusetts***, the resettlement agency.

“Once again, these resettlement agencies with no prior contact and/or coordination efforts with our city departments, use our Springfield as their ‘designated resettlement site,'” Sarno said. “Yet when these resettlement agencies are asked to assist these families in need in their own cities and/or towns — they state they do not have the capacity. Maybe they should try to create their own capacity.”

Sarno had also been critical of resettlement agencies in 2013 and 2014, urging the federal government at that time to put a moratorium on new refugee families settled in Springfield.

Sarno restated his claims of the past that the resettlement of refugees in Springfield was a situation of concentrating “poverty on top of poverty,” with low income people added to low-income areas.

    Having lived in the Springfield area for 8 years, I couldn’t pass up reading this article, Again, we have relief agencies just ramming people into areas that cannot handle them. Also the point being made about Springfield being a low income area. You read it and tell me if the mayor is wrong. Also surprised that Jewish Relief Agencies are heavily involved in the process.

  2. I’ll ask the question perhaps I misunderstood something

    Or it didn’t go into effect just yet

    I thought President Trump made it so Governors of States and Mayors of Cities/Towns had to be notified before placement and also had a right to accept them or not?

      No,I’m sure he would like that to happen, but to truly change this program, the lazy chickens in Congress are going to have to re-write the law!
