We’ve heard of cities all over the country who gladly welcome refugees and illegal immigrants, despite federal law. It looks like one Mayor finally got what was coming to him.
Rutland, Vermont is a small town with a small population and a struggling economy. The former mayor, Chris Louras, won the past five elections in a row, until he decided to sneak 100 Syrian refugees into his city, according to Breitbart. The mostly-Democrat filled city voted him out of his position by a staggering 18 POINTS!
The election wasn’t even close. Louras was DESTROYED by Alderman Dave Allaire, and Louras didn’t even stand a chance. It has EVERYTHING to do with the fact that he tried to bring refugees into the city without saying anything about it.
It would have been a horrible decision to begin with. Rutland has NO mosque, no other Syrian immigrants — nothing. There would have been a massive culture shock for both sides, and residents would be uncomfortable in their own city. It’s no surprise that Louras lost by such a landslide.
Former Mayor Louras had secret meetings with the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program, the State Department, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and many others. You would think he would have tried to ask the community he’s supposed to represent.
One of the craziest things about this story is that Vermont was one of Clinton’s biggest wins during the election — 61% to 32% — and this STILL happened. People on the left are even starting to have doubts.
The economy in Rutland is already awful. The city is trying to get its bearings again, and their Mayor wants to bring in 100 refugees, and give them all welfare. If he had followed through with his plan, the city would have been bankrupt, and broken by the end of the year.
When you hear people talk about living within their means, know that the same concept applies to whole cities. You won’t get a $100,000 loan if you make minimum wage. Why would you offer to take care of another 100 people who have NOTHING, when your city is already tanking? Talk about self-destruction.
The extreme leftists do not care about finances, the people around them, or anything else. The ONLY thing they care about is not offending people from other countries. This Mayor was destroying the lives of everyone in Rutland. It’s SICK.
Before we worry about helping everyone else, how about we help OURSELVES? We cannot be expected to take care of the world when we have people hungry, homeless, and broke in our own country. When we take more people in, we are ONLY making the situation worse and potentially unfixable.
Even the people the left are SO adamant about helping will eventually run into turmoil when the money dries up. It is BASIC common sense. It sounds like Louras could use a lesson or two.
Do YOU think Rutland would have went bankrupt in under a year if they would have taken in all these refugees? Share this story on Facebook and let us know because we want to hear YOUR voice!
