Refugee Resettlement Relief

We must go further...

Projected totals for FY 2013 under the federal grant were 5,740 refugees for Fulton and DeKalb.  Bear in mind that when this program originated only Fulton and DeKalb would agree to take the refugees with DeKalb taking the majority.  That was fine in 1980 because there were plenty of jobs then, however DeKalb hasn't had any job growth for 15 years. The current state chart for Georgia refugees shows the total reduced to 3,082. We owe a debt of gratitude to Governor Deal for taking action and sparing us from 2,658 more welfare recipients but we must go further. Georgia has taken more than its share of refugees for 33 years.  Its time to get out of the program until the other states can take their fair share. The cost in tax dollars has been astronomical and the job losses have crippled our ability to prosper by taking Georgians jobs and driving down the wage rate with thousands of unskilled workers.  Bear in mind that even if these people do get employment that they still receive food stamps, WIC (women, infant, and children's funds) money, state paid Medicade, and numerous other supplements not to mention the disastrous effect on our school systems.
