while their parents learn key phrases in English classes. (“Would you like to pay in cash or card?”)


You can’t make this stuff up. Say hello to your next customer service workers.
This has happened many times in history, replacing one group of immigrants for another for Low level workers.

I learned today people think it is derogatory to call them refugees!
It is derogatory to give them used clothing. I live a few hours away and they are collecting clothes all the freaking time.
If the government can’t take care of them they should not have been brought here. Expecting people in our state to provide winter clothing to these people is not acceptable.

Wait until all these worldwide refugees en masse and for undetermined reasons find out about the meaning of “Soylent Green” and “Work hard, Play hard!”

Welcome to the land of Milk and Honey.

Welcome to the island of Tea and Crusading prosperity..

This “Can-Do” attitude is to be for sure inspiring ;if not endorsed.

Just not underwritten by moi..oh wait.

Like Ted Cruz said . Let’s get some of these people on buses and ship a few thousand to Martha’s Vineyard and some politicians back yards.

Right on. Barry and Michelle have 30 acres. They can accommodate a large group. C'mon Mr. 'You Didn't Build That". Let's see you welcome a few hundred poor immigrants to your place. You had 500 people at your birthday. No wait, you were shamed so badly you scaled it back to 200.

Bernie has three houses. C'mon, Mr. 'Capitalism Is Evil'. Let's see you put your money where your mouth is.


Ted Cruz's plan:

The people supported the destruction of the entire country of Afghanistan, the least they can do is supply some warm clothes.

Grow some humanity.

Did We? Did We even have a say? Or was it the false flag known as 9/11 that the Government used to push Us there?

Some of the Indians probably thought the same to similar thing about the pilgrims.

So there is that.

What goes around, tends to come around JAGStorm.

That's just how the world rolls.

If anything i would be more concerned with the $20 Trillion dollars wasted in Afghanistan since the turn of the millennium with little to no real change in the situation over there whatsoever than i would be with any refugees that may come in your direction, down to a situation of your own creation.

Do you have a link(s) for this part - not claiming it' incorrect as it unfortunately seem entirely plausible - I just want to read more about the nutters claiming it' derogatory and their backward thinking.

Not 100% sure but I tihnk under international law a state/country has a legal duty to to provide and look after refugees and provide the basics to survive - failure to provide winter clothing would be breaking that law.

It seem a terrible resettlement plan that is destined to fail - local people could provide enough clothing for 100 or 500 if they're very lucky but 13,000 requires an enourmous ammount of resources and would naturally cause concern and resentment from local communities due to the impact such an influc would have on local culture.

Afghan Refugees Are Short of Food, Heat, and Clothes at Fort McCoy




I’m not joking when I say I get solicited to give winter clothing in new - preferred, or very very gently used condition for the Afghan refugee on a weekly if not daily basis. I noticed it is colder now they are urgently asking. Keep in mind for locals here 40 degrees is still tshirt weather, but for people from that part of the world it is probably absolutely freezing.

As far as the refugee statement, it is just stuff I’m starting to hear and people argue over. Don’t worry it will spread mainstream soon enough.

As I mentioned earlier I live a few hours from one of the resettlement camps, a large one. One thing that I find odd is how often different groups are collecting clothes, and this has been going on for a while since they arrived. It leads me to think one of two things.

Absolutely nobody wants to donate (highly unlikely) OR there are a lot more “refugees” than they are telling us.

I get solicited to give to charity every time i venture in to the town centre from they muppets with clip boards praying off other peoples misery.

End of the day they made charity a business rather than a service in some respects which is why I'm rather ambivalent to contribute.

Fact of the matter remains if you dont wish to give to charity you don't need to.

I would rather slip some poor homeless sod a £10 for a bag of kit or bottle of wine when im in the readies.

At least that way you know the cash monies actually reached the intended target audience without 75% of such being garnished by big business.

It’s different when the government ships in Twelve, Thirteen THOUSAND people, some of who might not be as savory as they make out to be and then beg the locals every chance they get to give to these people. Something does not make sense. If the government brought them here why are they not clothing them? Yes Yes I know this is coming from my taxpayer dollars.

Also, this has always been my question why send ME refugees to Wisconsin or Minnesota? I wonder if a study was done that they do it to mentally make the refugees know they have left their country and are in a different place.
It’s like the Somalians in Minnesota. Why wouldn’t they send them to Arizona, or Texas? Minnesota might as well have sent them to the moon!!!!

They won't be fully American until they learn phrases like "I'm the victim!" and "I'm entitled to.... ."

Been there, seen that, and got the hat and balloon.

I lived in an area called Govanhill which was already suffering from overcrowding and mass poverty.

When our beloved government thought it would be a good idea to essentially dump or allow around 15,000 migrant workers and refugees to descend on the area almost overnight and then leave them alone to there own devices.

It did not bode to well for the place, the people already there, and the poor sods dumped into an already overcrowded housing scheme.

And the moral of that story is that Nicola Sturgeon canny polish a turd any better than the rest.

End of the day through most of them are simply people who are seeking a better life.

Its a hell of a predicament, ile give you that, and one that must be managed as opposed to being dumped on the doorstep and left alone to sit there.

The U.S. leaving Afghanistan and letting the taliban take over wasn't fair. Occupying their country in a state of continual war wasnt fair to afghans.

Having to give clothes isnt fair, but doesnt quite compare to them.

It was us contually electing politicians that stayed in afghanistan. So yes, the american people are partially at fault for continuing to vote in the same status quo politicians.

So the least voters could do would be to provide clothes to the refugees of our failed war.

Cheers for the info.

Will read through the links now but this sounds like a clear breach of international law and human rights as the state failing to provide the basic essentials needed to survive.

It breaks several of Articles/Laws in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for basic standards of treatment: International standards for Human Rights - even prisoners of war must legally be provided nutritous food 3 times a day and be given water whenever they request it.

It's barbaric that Biden is continuing his complete screw over of the Afghan people and a good portion of those being treated this way were allies and interpreters on the battlefield and now face worse treatment than prisoners of war.

This is a major scandal brewing so thanks for making the thread and bringiing issue to my attention.
