Brian Lonergan: Compassion for refugees can hurt US communities
Take Maine, long known as a popular tourist destination of rugged coastlines, dense forests and lobster tails. At the beginning of the 21st century, Maine began to attract Somali immigrants in the Portland and Lewiston areas. Perhaps because of its open-door reputation, Maine today is overwhelmed with asylum seekers from the Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola.

Local gyms have been converted into makeshift shelters and elected leaders are debating how the community will pay for all the generosity. Cash-strapped Portland alone is facing a bill of over $1 million to accommodate a migrant flow that is almost certain to increase.

While local media are hailing the influx as an “opportunity” that will improve the community, the sentiment is not unanimous. Former Gov. Paul LePage blasted his successor, Janet Mills, for encouraging the migration and ignoring the needs of citizens in Maine who are struggling.

“The State of Maine has a responsibility to care for our elderly, homeless, and disabled who’ve been left behind before we can address the needs of newcomers,” he said.

Then there is the health risk. The Democratic Republic of Congo is currently suffering through an Ebola epidemic so bad that the World Health Organization is considering declaring an international emergency there. Normally, asylum seekers are subject to a health check and quarantine if necessary before entering the U.S.

However, Acting Homeland Security Director Kevin McAleenan recently admitted that, because of the overflow at the border, thousands of border crossers and illegal immigrants are being released into the country every week without undergoing tests for diseases. Given these factors, a potentially deadly outbreak of Ebola in the United States seems almost inevitable.

Govener Mills won’t earn a second term. Not because of refugees but the state can afford this type of thinking and these types of programs that go way beyond the states budget. All the ideas of “free” this or that are great until the state has to pay for it. Maine is not a wealthy state and not a place for retirement for tax reasons.

Wake up America!

The reality does not match the insanity of our politicians desperate for voters.

As Prince Pombo posted:
we come America for easy life

How many of us do have easy life?

Portlanders welcome asylum seekers, but also worry about financial strain on taxpayers


While city of Portland and state officials work on meeting the immediate needs of asylum seekers who suddenly showed up on the city’s doorstep last week, practical concerns are starting to emerge, such as who is going to pay for their care and how they are going to find housing.

As of Saturday night, 201 people, mainly asylum seekers from sub-Saharan Africa, were staying on cots at the Portland Expo, which has become a makeshift homeless shelter. They arrived in Maine from the southern U.S. border, fleeing violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola, and were among 252 who have come to Portland over the past week.

Most Portlanders have endorsed an open-arms approach to the asylum seekers, Mayor Ethan Strimling said. As of Sunday, the city had raised more than $250,000 in donations to its Community Support Fund to help people staying at the Expo, according to City Hall spokeswoman Jessica Grondin.

“I’ve heard ‘thank-you’s and people want to make sure the resources are there,” Strimling said.

The mayor downplayed the costs of caring for the families, saying it represents a small fraction of Portland’s overall budget. “People think this is some huge outpouring of expenses, but there’s no indication that’s the case,” he said

Strimling believes the group will ultimately benefit the city. “Somebody that has worked that hard to get to the United States and to Portland, we want them here,” he said.

City officials have said that the asylum seekers who are arriving are not eligible for General Assistance, a safety net program that provides vouchers for food, shelter, medicine and other needs. The state reimburses the city for 70 percent of those costs. Asylum seekers are also not eligible for federal programs such as Medicaid, food stamps and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.

Jacob Krueger, 33, of Portland said people are in crisis and they need help, and that should be the overriding concern.

“I’m very proud to live in a city who will welcome people in need,” Krueger said. “We’re all on this planet together.”

Maxwell Chikuta of Portland, a leader in the city’s Congolese community, said Portland and Maine need young workers, and immigrants can help fill that need.

“The effort to welcome them is going to pay off for us down the road,” said Chikuta, who immigrated to Portland in the early 2000s. He has since earned a doctorate in public policy administration and owns two businesses, including L’Africana Market on Brighton Avenue.

I was just told about this BS yesterday when I went to Portland to meet a customer for lunch. Unreal
Prince Pombo is showing you how the process works when you come here for easy life. From illusion fed by clumsy and irresponsible Americans to a major frustration in 7 days!

now THERE'S something I'd be happy to see .gov fund

the 2019 Go theFvck home Act
As you can read in enclosed media coverage, for liberals it makes more sense to make Congo out of Maine than to move unhappy Congolese back to Congo. Mainers welcome diversity!

Record number of African migrants coming to border
PORTLAND, Maine —Undaunted by a dangerous journey over thousands of miles, people fleeing economic hardship and human rights abuses in African countries are coming to the U.S.-Mexico border in unprecedented numbers, surprising Border Patrol agents more accustomed to Spanish-speaking migrants.

Officials in Texas and even Maine are scrambling to absorb the sharp increase in African migrants. They are coming to America after flying across the Atlantic Ocean to South America and then embarking on an often harrowing overland journey.

The immigrants in Texas were mostly from the Republic of the Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Angola. Cameroonians have also been traveling up through Mexico and into the U.S. in larger numbers and seeking asylum at ports of entry.

On recent Saturday in Tijuana, there were 90 Cameroonians lined up to get on a waiting list to request asylum that has swelled to about 7,500 names. Also on the waiting list are Ethiopians, Eritreans, Mauritanians, Sudanese and Congolese.

Portland officials tweeted Thursday that rumors some of the migrants are carrying the Ebola virus "are patently false," and said that as asylum seekers, they are in the United States legally.

On Thursday afternoon, families in the Expo chatted in French and Portuguese as children kicked a soccer ball near rows of cots. One of the men, 26-year-old Prince Pombo, described himself as a pro-democracy activist and said he had fled his native country, the Democratic Republic of Congo, because of political oppression. He went to neighboring Angola, then flew to Brazil. There, he met a local woman and they had a baby they named Heaven. Now 16-months old, she giggled as she played with her mother in the Expo. Pombo said his journey from Congo to America took three years.

More migrants are on the way. Mexico is on pace to triple the number of African immigrants it is processing this year, up from 2,100 in 2017.

Mbi Deric Ambi, from the English-speaking part of Cameroon, is among them. In a recent interview in the southern Mexican city of Tapachula, Ambi said he was waiting for a document from the Mexican authorities that would allow him to proceed north to the U.S. He traveled overland through South and Central America after flying to Ecuador.

----------------

This is an excellent material for our liberal media:
Once our money built the DEMOCRATIC Republic of Congo (or whatever else) citizens of that DEMOCRATIC republic have to escape here for better life. Well done, liberals! We, taxpayers, just keep paying for these liberal vapors!

------------
U.S. Relations With Democratic Republic of the Congo - United States Department of State
U.S. relations with the D.R.C. are deep and longstanding. U.S. foreign policy in the D.R.C. is focused on supporting the country to uphold democratic processes and effective governance, promoting stability and peace within the country and with its neighbors, improving the rule of law to strengthen state authority across its territory, and developing institutions that are accountable and responsive to the basic needs of its citizens. The State Department’s Bureau of African Affairs leads U.S. engagement aimed at supporting a peaceful democratic transfer of power following the December 2018 elections and addressing the root causes of conflict and instability in the region. The United States is the D.R.C.’s largest bilateral donor and the single largest financial contributor to MONUSCO.

U.S. Assistance to the Democratic Republic of the Congo

The D.R.C.’s development and humanitarian needs are vast. The U.S. government is the largest bilateral donor in the D.R.C., with approximately $500 million in development and humanitarian programming per year. U.S. assistance supports a more stable, democratic nation through improving the capacity and governance of core national-level institutions, creating economic opportunities, responding to urgent humanitarian needs, and addressing the root causes of conflict. The United States has also served as a lead donor to the recent Ebola outbreaks in the D.R.C..

The United States remains the single largest donor of humanitarian assistance to the people of the D.R.C., providing more than $87 million for the D.R.C. and Congolese refugees since FY 2017, representing approximately 50 percent of all humanitarian assistance in the D.R.C.. USAID provides life-saving food, safe drinking water, emergency medical care, critical nutrition services, improved hygiene and sanitation conditions, psychosocial services and other support for vulnerable children, as well as essential household supplies for families who were forced to flee violence and leave everything behind. The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau for Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) supports countrywide protection programs and multi-sector assistance, including gender-based violence prevention and response, targeting refugees and conflict victims in the D.R.C.. U.S. government FY 2017 development assistance to D.R.C. totaled $317 million. USAID development assistance integrates programs in education, stabilization, democracy and governance, health, social protection, and economic growth. The United States also works to promote Security Sector Reform (SSR), with an emphasis on professionalization of the armed forces, human rights, and Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) prevention, as well as improving the effectiveness, transparency, and accountability of the civilian justice system.
-----------------------

Such economic refugees have no place in Maine or anywhere in our country! Either we are stopping all $ to the Democratic Republic of Congo or we are taking their citizens and dump them on our taxpayers. We can't be doing both!

Unless liberals want Democratic State of Maine, that is something to consider!

A city? Yeah, the 'city' will take care of everything. I'm getting pretty tired of liberals assuming the magic well of resources has limitless reserves. So where's the jobs program to place these happy people who are eager to work for low wages? Shouldn't that come first?

Also, where TF does the money come from to fly across the pond? I would think that the money necessary to fly across the pond would go a long way in a poverty stricken country. Doesn't pass the smell test.

That camp of yours is probably empty most of the time. Be ashamed! Such camp is a valuable natural resource which needs to be utilized in our global human engineering endeavors. [slap]

JFC I better sell it before Mills takes it for the new "Workers".

I wish Paul LePage was still governor instead of bartending.

Correct!

Naive Americans are targets of international mafias who use money we have sent to build people smuggling networks all over the world. We are those rich idiots sponsoring nomads coming here:
All you need to know about migrant smuggling in the EU
Since the migration crisis in 2015 the migrant smuggling business has established itself as a large, lucrative criminal market and migrant smuggling continues to represent a highly-profitable business in which criminal syndicates enjoy low risk of detection. The business model of criminals involved in this crime is continuously evolving and responding to the dynamics and the needs of the migratory flows. Many factors, including policy developments, law enforcement activities, as well as budget and travel preferences of irregular migrants, have an impact on the migration routes and modi operandi used by migrant smugglers. Criminals quickly adapt to changes and show great versatility in the means of transport and technologies they use. They are becoming more and more organised, establishing sophisticated professional networks, operating transnationally from source towards destination countries.

this is really nothing new in America. My grandparents came over from poland in the '30's...and ended up in Shenendoah PA....because THAT is one area all the polacks went to. They spoke mostly polish, went to polish church, worked the coal mines like back in poland...and so on.

The BIG DIFFERENCE between then and now...back then you pulled your own weight, or died. You worked HARD. You made sure your kids went to school and assimillated into the US culture. You made sure they spoke English.

Today, it seems that a vast majority of these immigrants just end up on the public dole....they want to be fed/clothed/entertained on US taxpayer's expense. That is just wrong. I can see emergency help...like english lessons for free, and some government programs to make jobs and job training available....but if you are an immigrant, you need to be pulling your own weight. No welfare allowed.

Allow me to point out another major difference:

I am sure your grandparents did not come here from Poland to build another Poland! They did not bitch in their first week here that Americans don't provide them car or better bed. They did not want the system they had home over here! They UNDERSTOOD and VALUED what America accomplished and what America was.

This is not the case today. Our liberals keep searching for a Promised Land in which exported labor will work on them, taxpayers will cover their needs, while they are "searching" or "finding themselves".

Working class America gets stuck with the bill, as always! Immigration has to be stopped, its unsustainable.... I think that only those who vote Democrat should have to pay, my heart bleeds for none of those people, charity starts at home!
And when the Rs had total control, they didnt do anything. (I dont vote D).

Both R and D are scum.

It is cheaper today to leave the country and come back without any papers as an illegal, than it is to be legal. You could get a great deal. Get a SSN as Juan and then continue working as John Smith. Pay takes as John Smith but get that money back as Juan.

Send them up to the County, give them a coat and a pair of boots and let them figure out the rest.

Record number of African migrants coming to border

"The explosion in immigration to the United States from sub-Saharan Africa coincides with a steep drop in the migration flow across the Mediterranean to Europe after European countries and two main embarkation points — Turkey and Libya — decided to crack down. From Jan. 1 to June 12, only 24,600 migrants arrived in Europe by sea, compared to 99,600 over the same period in 2017, according to the International Organization for Migration."

Cameroonians?

I thought they could just fly in direct? At least they come with the correct clothes for the weather up in Portland!
