RUTLAND, VERMONT 100 SYRIAN REFUGEES WILL BRING ‘CULTURAL DIVERSITY’ ACCORDING TO MAYOR, BUT RESIDENTS NOT HAPPY…BERNIE SANDERS PEOPLE ISLAMOPHOBE? CITY OF RUTLAND HAS 15,822 RESIDENTS.

 

( Daily Caller ) Some small-town residents of Rutland, Vt., are upset at their mayor’s decision to resettle 100 Syrian refugees throughout 2017 in the area.

Rutland Mayor Christopher Louras defended his decision, saying the town’s demographics are declining, and they are having trouble recruiting younger workers. He also thinks refugees will bring cultural diversity.

“We need people,” Louras declared to The New York Times.

Louras’s decision sparked outrage among some residents who say they had little say in the mayor’s decision, which would effect them all. They formed an advocacy group called Rutland First to pressure Louras to reverse his decision

An open letter on the group’s Facebook page says “Rutland First DOES NOT condone violence of any kind towards ANYONE,” continuing “we may disagree with the mayors actions of bringing refugees to our community for a variety of different reasons, BUT never have we wanted harm to come to any human being.”
