Syrian Refugees Relocated in Secret

Documents were released this week detailing a plan to secretly relocate over 100 Syrian refugees to the town of Rutland, Vermont.

The mayor of the town was one of the members organizing the resettlement, along with several other private organizations. Eventually, an investigation was opened against the mayor for his secrecy.

The Judicial Watch reports:

“The mayor and resettlement organizations shrouded the plan in such secrecy that not even the town’s aldermen were informed of what was taking place behind closed doors. The aldermen eventually wrote to the U.S. Department of State protesting the plan and opened an investigation into the mayor’s actions. The State Department has not yet ruled on whether it will resettle refugees in Rutland despite the aldermen’s protest.

Many were obviously opposed to the relocation of refugees, especially considering the secrecy which shrouded the actions of the local government’s plan.

Local officials and many citizens wanted a vote on the matter, but the plan by the mayor was already in effect.

In an email sent by Amila Merdzanovic, the executive director of the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program, she tried to justify the secrecy and lies the government of Rutland, VT was feeding its citizens.

The Judicial Watch reports:

“I want to share with you the concern my HQ has about holding a public forum. If we open it up to anybody and everybody, all sorts of people will come out of woodwork. Anti-immigrant, anti-anything. They suggest that the forum be invite only but make it as wide as possible. Work with faith leaders, United Way, etc… Perhaps, we could go back to the Congregational Church and continue the conversation there.”

The purpose of their relocation is cited to be for “cultural diversity” reasons, however the continual allowance of refugees in this country provides a threat to the people, as more and more terrorist attacks are carried out on American soil as a result.

Furthermore, the actions by officials like the mayor of Rutland, VT are encouraged by President Obama, due to his refugee relocation plans under the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, who receive over $1 billion in taxpayer dollars per year.

During the fiscal year 2016, Obama resettled over 12,500 Syrian refugees alone.

Many other small towns have attempted to relocate Syrian refugees in mass quantities as well. In fiscal year 2017, there is a proposed plan to relocate 100 Syrian and Iraqi refugees in Flint, Michigan.

The Judicial Watch reports:

“City leaders have not been informed of the details involving this matter,” A spokesperson for the mayor of Flint, Michigan told Breitbart News last month.”

Missoula, MT is another example of a small town who secretly planned to relocate many refugees in the past fiscal year.

What are your thoughts?

Is the secrecy by the local government something to indict the officials for?

Or is it acceptable government corruption because of President Obama’s Refugee Relocation programs?

    The refugees of Arabic ancestry should not be coming here. They should be resettled in countries with which they are compatible such as Saudia Arabia, Yemen, UAE, etc. If they are brought here, they should have to move into the residences of public officials, both elected and appointed, who support having the refugees come here.
