Most people do not understand that.. And THAT is part of the problem. But a bigger part of this problem is that refugees get all the rights of Americans and they are not vetted, and won’t have the same limitations of chain immigration for family members they want to bring over after they’re settled in.
Refugees are given thousands of dollars to live on each month, as citizens (instant citizens) who don’t understand any part of the cost of where that money comes from. Many are not even able to get jobs, because they have no skills, and no ability to GET skills. They’re not capable of going to school, getting an education, or even assimilating into an American lifestyle, because they’re living in their victimhood.
The case workers who work with them don’t have the skills necessary to assimilate them. The schools where their children attend are overwhelmed by the costs and the educational/language needs and requirements. Overall, these people who are pulled up out of their horrific life situations, are dropped into life situations that are so different from anything they’ve ever known that they have NO CONCEPT of life in their current position. They live in fear, or demand that we provide a “likeness to where they came from” to make them comfortable.
And that my friends, is why it is so important to pay attention to what’s going on and help these people settle and find protection in areas where they are close to their homeland if possible instead of bringing them to the USA where lifestyles are SO DIFFERENT from what they’ve lived.
This isn’t about being racist or intolerant, it’s about accepting that not all people have American Values, and not all of them want our values, therefore we have to allow them to remain in areas where their values are the “normal” rather than trying to put them into situations and recreate their normal.
