What about us?

Post  fshnski on Mon Aug 19, 2013 7:44 pm

Another 200 refugees will be resettled in Manchester in the coming months, a number that Mayor Ted Gatsas said breaks an agreement he had reached with a refugee resettlement organization.

However, the International Institute of New England said the agreement was only for a 12-month period that lapses next month. And the projection for the coming 12 months — 200 refugees for Manchester — is the same as the current period. An additional 50 will be placed in Nashua.

Carolyn Benedict-Drew, the director of the Boston-based International Institute of New England, said the refugees entering New Hampshire starting in October will most likely be Bhutanese and Iraqis.

Benedict-Drew said Bhutanese started settling in Manchester in 2008, and the first wave are in the pipeline to become citizens, about 300.

"These are going to be voting members of our community who will be building the economic base in New Hampshire," Benedict-Drew said.

Iraqis include some who fought alongside Americans during the Iraqi war, she said.

A recent report by the International Institute of New Hampshire prepared for the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants said that the state's two largest cities have a favorable economic forecast, medical clinics and facilities to treat refugees with mental health and physical problems, including HIV/AIDs, and access to state funding for English classes.

Yep, business as usual. But as you said most of the comments were AGAINST allowing them to come in. When you wrote that I wondered if the immigrants is the reason Manchester seems to have so much more crime than they used to or it is just a sign of the times?

Why the hell is an organization from Boston determining what is to happen in New Hampshire?
