I know there are other rural parts of the US like Portland ME (not traditionally a very diverse area) where NGO's bought in large numbers of Somalians and placed them there (some folks in the state were not huge fans of the program). I really wonder how this all works out.
Majority are African immigrants....majority from war torn countries such as Somalia. In ND the majority are placed here by Lutheran Social Services with Grand Forks and Fargo seeing the bulk of them in ND.

Thanks, great post Dan. I've been to plenty of those "diversity" and "sensitivity" training sessions. You'd have to be an idiot to think they benefit anyone except the agencies that profit from putting them on. They're guilt-trip manipulation sessions.

I wouldn't expect someone who's enthusiastic about being from Taxxachusetts to understand any of that.

Yeah, "Refugees". The only thing they're fleeing from is themselves.

But as soon as all those "charities" bring them over, it's we who need to flee from them.

There's a reason s-hole countries are s-holes: it's the people. Nothing but chaotic, backward, and dysfunctional cultures that produce very little.

By the way, your and my taxpayer dollars go toward funding a lot of the "charities" that work to bring people over and help them apply for welfare programs, Catholic Charities and Lutheran Social Services in particular, and they operate all over the country.
