How Does Connecticut Benefit From Taking in Refugees?

This powerful commentary by Dale "Duffy" Dauphinais, first appeared in CT Viewpoints.  CT Viewpoints

An open letter to Sen. Richard Blumenthal,

Consider, on the same day: I read that my U.S Senator, that would be you, is proposing to expedite the processing of Middle East refugees into Connecticut; and, that our government, in fact, no one, has any ability to check the status of any of the mostly Muslim “refugee.” As the U.S. Department of Homeland Security testified to Congress, no such database exists, anywhere.

Are they truly refugees or are they migrants subject to immigration laws? Are they criminals? Are they terrorists? How do we know? We do know that more than 70% are adult males, which is not the typical profile of refugees. So we have no clue who these people are, and no means to determine who they are, and you, my Senator, want to expedite their induction into Connecticut. That may make sense to you and some other people, but not me.

Please, sir, to demonstrate your personal commitment and benevolence to the cause, let us know how many “refugees” will be moving into your home and into your Greenwich neighborhood. I must have missed the headline announcing that Greenwich is offering to house 1,000 “refugees.”

Here’s an idea:
I challenge you and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to launch an online site that allows “progressive citizens” to voluntarily sign up to accept a Muslim “refugee” into their home like a foreign exchange student. Help them assimilate, pay their way, ensure they pose no security threat. One thousand “refugees” and 1,000 “progressive” volunteer homes. If five people sign up, that’s how many we take in. Based on your wealth, I’m assuming you can comfortably take responsibility for 1,000 of them all by yourself. Or, are you the typical politician who believes in charity using other people’s money, and so long as it does not impact your neighborhood, your town, your security, your lifestyle?

Sir, do you have no concept of the harm and chaos you are creating? Do you even consider the negative consequences your policies will have on the hard-working citizens of Connecticut and their towns? Do you care that citizens of Connecticut are broke, have no money to pay for your charity and who are not able to properly care for the citizens we have? Do you believe Connecticut citizens will be safer and more prosperous as a result?

Please sir, exactly how do the citizens of Connecticut benefit from what you propose? Please focus your answer on us, Connecticut’s citizens.

From my analysis of the matter, it seems the only citizens who benefit are you and Gov. Malloy. You both get to demonstrate your “progressive” bona fides to your political elite. It’s a stepping stone to becoming one of the “progressive” oligarch – which is what you appear to desire most.  And we citizens of Connecticut suffer. Prove me wrong. Tell Connecticut citizens how we benefit, how our lives will be improved.

I look forward to your answers.

  1. We must ignore the Progressive calls to alleviate the suffering of others, even when we have played a key role in causing it. It is the role of the US to solve problems with military force, death and destruction, not concern for victims. We need to uphold our proud tradition of denying entry to refugees threatened with extinction, especially if they are not Christian. Starting in 1938 we resolutely refused to allow European Jews to come to America to escape Hitler. We saw no benefit to us, so there was no reason to allow them entry. The fact that hundreds of thousands who sought refuge here died in concentration camps is of no concern to us. We must be equally firm now. As the author states, the only thing that matters is what is in it for us. If it is going to cost me money, even just in the short run, those people will just have to die. I just wish they would stop complaining about it.
