At least one of the major players in Minnesota’s refugee industry has woken up and smelled the coffee—gobs of federal money is not going to flow to the resettlement of more refugees to Minnesota, especially Somalis, in the foreseeable future.
One of the first questions people ask me when they first hear about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program and the imminent arrival of third world poverty to their home town/city is this:
Why are we doing this when we have so many poor and homeless people right here who need care?
It looks like at least Catholic Charities is getting the message, perhaps from many faithful Catholic parishioners (like Kate below!)!
The primary story on the news is at theStar Tribuneheadlined (hat tip: Joanne):
Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis cuts refugee resettlement, adoption programs
The charity will instead focus on fighting homelessness and helping at-risk kids.
