Thousands of Muslim refugees have already left Arizona on their own demand and many more will follow because of one VERY simple thing the Arizona residents are doing. This comes after hordes of Muslim refugees invaded in US, and Arizona became top destination for the immigrants.
At least 7,500 Somali refugees resettled in Arizona have moved out of the state because there are not enough welfare and government benefits for what they want. Moreover, the state requires all of them to learn English and find jobs in order to get food stamps. Apparently, this move doesn’t fit to everyone, so they are moving out.
Here’s more… Each immigrant in Arizona receives $925 from the US Department of Health and Human Service. With this payment, migrants is expected to foot the rest of their bills after the payment is spent. The state of Arizona doesn’t offer additional funding unless these welfares earn them. And it seems like too many steps for some of them.
All the refugees are required to complete a monthly report proving that they are learning English, and looking for jobs. If some of them skips to visit language courses or refuse to apply for job, their food stamps are cut off and they are denied all other state benefits.
Here’s what one Somali refugee said about Arizona’s system:
“The one thing that Arizona does very well is making sure that at least these families will not go hungry,” Somali asylum seeker Mukhtar Sheikh says. “But sometimes these families don’t get enough help — they come in saying, “Oh, my food stamps have stopped,’ so we have to call DES and ask them why.”
He then admitted that he and his family were leaving Arizona for better benefits.
“If that money runs out and they don’t have a job, then there starts to be pressure for them to find a way to survive,” Sheikh says. “There’s not a lot of programs to help them with employment here.”
