  1. maybe he's thinking of Lewiston, ME http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/story?id=130098&page=1 "Atlanta is a big city. It's not good for kids," said Nimo Muhammed, a Somali who moved to Lewiston six months ago. She said she moved there with her eight children in search for a better life. "I have a big space now. I have a big apartment. It's cheaper than Atlanta," Muhammed said. Struggling to Find a Job Although Lewiston offers Muhammed a cheaper lifestyle, she, like most Somali immigrants, is still grappling to find a job. Three out of four refugees typically apply to the city for welfare when they arrive, and many admit Maine's generous benefits are part of what attracted them to the area. However, the state's generosity has caused Lewiston's welfare costs to double, causing officials to contemplate having to raise property taxes. Some of the town's longtime residents are infuriated.
  2. they keep referring to themselves as "nasty" I can agree with that!
  3. it's always entertaining watching the gals and their soy boys make a spectacle of themselves
  4. but not this.... USA Today: There are 3.6M 'DREAMers' — a number far greater than commonly known https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2018/01/18/there-3-5-m-dreamers-and-most-may-face-nightmare/1042134001/ The political debate over the fate of "DREAMers" — undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children — has overlooked just how many there are in the country today: about 3.6 million.

  6. Democrat "compassion" for so called "Dreamers" is so touching.... http://www.newsweek.com/daca-memo-democrats-2018-outrage-775988 DEMOCRATS FEAR LOSING 2018 ELECTIONS IF DACA DEAL IS NOT PASSED, MEMO REVEALS A memo from a liberal-leaning advocacy group warning Democrats that they could fail in the 2018 midterm races if they can't strike a deal to protect "Dreamer" children of undocumented immigrants has conservatives accusing the party of playing politics with the lives of migrants. The memo from Jennifer Palmieri, Hillary Clinton’s former top aide and executive vice president for communications and advocacy for the Center for American Progress Action Fund, called on Democrats to make the fight for DACA recipients a “moral imperative” or else risk jeopardizing their chances in 2018. “The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success,” the memo reads.
