One of my concerns is that the looting and the shooting in New Orleans is going to supply the KKK and like minded groups with enough ammunition to keep their current level of believers and possibly allow the recruitment of new members.

I'm less worried about that - as it's always been an issue and always will be - but a little more concerned about the long-term effects on our economy - As if it really needed another strong blow...
Add to the mix our very stretched capacity in multiple aspects - Overpopulation and increased poverty do not mix well in our present national situation....Not to mention the poor crop performance - Farmers are having a hard enough time just trying to produce sufficient amounts of food during these very trying agricultural times...
A migration may not quite be the way to put it though....It's more like a "dispersal"....There's going to be a general outward fanning of these refugees into neighboring states - But I think as they become settled in and find a new home, they'll only add to the productivity of these cities...
My best wishes goes out to these people...

Dgtempe...I lived in New England for 20 years Maine specifically and moved only because of what king george 1st's ressession did to the economy up there and really want to move back. New England has always been fiscally conservative and socially liberal and I honestly believe that these refugees will be warmly welcomed up there. It was my experince that the cool yankee reserve was a pose to adopt while they checked you out, but once they decided you were OK, you made friends for life. Good luck to them all up there.
