The immediate up front cost will be $1 Billion. Not included in the $1 Billion is the cost of unaccompanied children, food stamps, housing, interpreters, Medicaid, WIC, TANF, schooling, or additional 'chain' migration for other family members. These costs will be funded by the states and cities tax payers.
Cities in Florida that will get new residents are- Clearwater, Delray Beach, Doral, Jacksonville, Miami, Naples, North Port, Orlando, Palm Beach, Pensacola, Plantation, Riviera Beach, Tallahassee, Tampa.
I knew this thread was going to be trolling rightwingnut BS.


Your claim of 70,000 Syrian refugees being sent here is 100% false.

70,000 is the average number of Intl refugees the US accepts in any given year. The total number of Syria's 3.2 million refugees who have been accepted into the USA thus far is around 300. There are 9,000 more seeking asylum here. Not 70.000.

Like others have mentioned, I can't wait to have some more people in the community who love being in America, and love the safe and prosperous life someone can build for themselves in America. Unlike self entitled neoconfederate Americans, who claim they love America, while vigorously hating the American people and everything America stands for.

I feel bad for the ones who will be relocated to Pensacola, I can imagine they will be surrounded by people who think all Muslims are terrorists.

And Riviera Beach... Sounds like they are moving from one war zone to another.


Seriously though I don't believe this is true.

I feel really bad for those Syrians. They are doing anything to escape that war over there. I have seen them on the news even going through Africa to get to Europe. It's horrible.

These refugees escaping horrific realities in their homelands, no one should bash them or use them as pawns. Have a problem with Islam, fine. But leave these people who are human beings out . Nothing will happen to Florida. The world needs to do far more for these refugees, not just the U.S or West but all across the world. Even the likes of Iran and Russia. Syria's neighbors are already up to their necks with refugees.

Well nothing better than enjoying some quality Falafel and Hummus while reading Infowars on a daily basis...

U.S. to accept Syrian refugees in greater numbers after slow start - LA Times

I knew as well, but don't forget there are those who actually believe what comes out of Alex Jones mouth is fact and the sky is falling mentality...

I'm sure many of them will be "students" and they will take an interest in learning how to fly commercial airliners.

Is it not the Syrian Christians that need relocating? The religious minority in Syria is under constant attack. The Syrian Muslims should go to other Muslim countries....u know to be with other Muslims. There's a long and brutal history of Muslims discriminating and persecuting Christians in Syria.

We should agree to take in the persecuted Syrian Christians.... As they face discrimination and violence daily. Not the Muslims....as they can find other countries better suited for them and their religion.

I feel bad for Syria. It was very westernized under Assad. But because of politics, their people have suffered.
