With Middle East migrants flooding the United States, Arizona is a state that’s resettled more than it’s “fair share” of asylum seekers.
Up to half of their refugees have already left the state on their own accord with more to follow because of the one thing the residents are doing.
They are finally going back to where they came from.
Although large liberal states are welcoming the illegal aliens mostly from Muslim countries, Arizona has taken over 7.000 Somali refugees. Since the states have been penalized under the Barack Obama administration, the southwestern state wasn’t about to ship out thousands of migrants who come from one of the most dangerous countries in the world.
Mad World News, at least half of the 7.351 Somali refugees resettled in Arizona have moved out of the state because there are not enough welfare and government benefits for their liking. They are moving out because the state requires them to learn English and find jobs in order to attain food stamps.
Each migrant that was resettled in Arizona received a lump payment of $925 from the United States Department of Health and Human Services. The state receiving said that the migrants are expected to foot the rest of their bills after the stipend is used up. However, Arizona doesn’t offer additional funding unless they take the necessary steps to earn them.
They are also required to complete a monthly report proving that they are taking English classes and looking for jobs. If they skip this, their food stamps are cut off and they are denied all other state benefits.
“The one thing that Arizona does very well is making sure that at least these families will not go hungry. 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. 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. There’s not a lot of programs to help them with employment here,” Somali asylum seeker Mukhtar Sheikh said.
“So far we haven’t had any refugees become homeless, that I know of. Most of the time, they say they have family in Minnesota, they can find jobs in Minnesota, so we fundraise to help them get a ticket to go there.”
