Why would agencies put refugees in one of the highest cost of living areas in the nation?


Higher paying jobs.

The resettlement agencies have limited funds wasting money on putting refugees in the highest cost of living areas in the nation would be a waste of resources. If the refugees have the skills needed to get those jobs they can move after resettlement like any other person living in the US.

Love to see 'em.

If this is true, it is likely because her district is already highly democratic. You want refuges in republican districts.

Voluntary Agencies

The resettlement process is mostly done by volunteer agencies. If you think its economical to try to provide housing in the one of the highest cost of living areas in the nation then by all means start a charity to do it.

You will be happy to quote the parts you were referring to right?

it sounds like you want to slam the door on Syrian women and children just because the citizens of the district wont dish the money out.

Whats a little more taxes if it means you can practice what you preach. Just pay for it all and stop being backwards

Nancy,
She is known for double parking with her personal chauffeur
to go in and shop. She likes the car to be handy, close by.

Rules are for little people!

Seems like she wants to keep her district free from
refugees for some reason!

Refugees are for other districts!

I mean if you want higher taxes to help refugees, great. Yet it still wouldn't be economical to place refugees in areas with high cost of living as that would just waste money.

no, the citizens THERE can pay a municipal housing and living expense tax.

They know how best to get the funds to those in need.

Perhaps the landlords can lower rent for them, and grocery stores can have a charge account billed to local taxes for the expense. Schools in the area can enjoy the cultural enrichment of these folks. The kids there will benefit!

also, this is a really expensive area right?

They have more money and should pay more. They are rich and the refugees are poor.

Give them your money.

Right.

Better to let low income areas support refugee programs like food stamps for example.

it is both. They need the benefit of the expensive and well funded schools from one of our gems of a city. The beautiful housing that they deserve after having everything taken from them.

They need the love of an accepting populace.

Is this area too good for them?

Give them jobs in the area that will pay them enough to live like locals.

Protect and shelter them in these communities. Lord knows everyone will benefit from it.

Its not too good for them its just too expensive. Why waste Twice as much in San Francisco when you could resettle in say Indianapolis?

Outstanding X. F+S well deserved. We'll just have to
invite refugees over to her vineyard, er tent city: and
see how many we can get into it. Sound at all familiar?

Hey it worked for the ACA... and I thought socialism,
like charity begins at home.
Cmon Nancy you can write off the Porta potties-- be-
cause it's a government mandated humanitarian policy.

I can personally attest that California has Syrian refugees. The community I work in north of San Diego has a decent amount of Syrian's. I talk and interact with them daily and get to hear first hand about where their from. I will say that most of them are decent people but challenging at times with their culture.

They deserve to end the suffering they endure.

The dangers of inner city life are too perilous to subject them to the depravity of targetted areas of racial profiling, police abuse, and social stagnation.

They need be schooled in our finest school systems, given the best jobs in wealthy areas just like this one so they can live in these safe havens of progressive thought where their diversity is cherished and celebrated.

Unless you want them to become another disenfranchised minority in the ghetto.

Do you want that?

EDIT TO ADD:
Too expensive? Gosh, I thought it was cheaper to help them in their home countries. If its about money and more bang for your buck, help them AT HOME.

If its about love and progress, give them your best. They deserve it. That is why they are being brought here. Because it really would be cheaper to help them in their country.....but money, pfft who cares right?

Helping people....remember? So HELP THEM. Indianapolis cant do as much as the wealthy here can. Its their SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY.

More expensive doesn't mean better with cost of living.

By the way, how would San Francisco be more costly to settle refugees?

But it does mean better schools, more police and social services, better healthy living spaces, better security, more access to higher paying jobs, access to better quality food and recriation, more beautiful scenery with more pleasant and happy people.

Hey, if you think they dont deserve it then fine. I guess you just dont care about how much they suffered and deserve something good now.

Your argument "more expensive doesng mean better with cost of living" is MORE VALID in their home country.

Shait, for every dollar spent here they could have 10 times the purchasing power in Syria.

Its not about money. Its just the right thing to do. So just take them in and pay for it no matter the wasteful and problematic mess it becomes since we are trying to make a difference.

Stop being so CONSERVATIVE with your money: is my message to this area. Spend your wealth on these people. Think of the children leaving one war zone only to enter another in places like Chicago.

Just pay for it and stop being so regressive. Its just money you capitalists steal from subjected peoples anyways.
