Where Should We Resettle Refugees In The US?

Postby Imbalistan » Tue Dec 10, 2019 8:03 pm

In light of the capital of North Dakota, Bismark, barring new refugee arrivals in the future, a new question has come to mind; if we resettle refugees, where should we? While of course there is the argument we shouldn't resettle refugees at all, if we were to, where should we? Of course some people will point out not to at all, or to resettle them in big cities, but I personally think we should resettle them in a very unlikely state; North Carolina.

That may sound crazy; many North Carolinian's (if not most) would straight out reject that. But, here is my evidence; North Carolina had a high rate of job growth in the 2018 year, and I think many refugees would be able to resettle here. Many refugees have college educations in there home countries (though most of them are not accepted in the US), but there is a large retail industry here, which does not require a education.

What do you think NS?

If an area was ours for 500 years and yours for 50 years, it should belong to us – you are merely occupiers.
If an area was yours for 500 years and ours for 50 years, it should belong to us – borders must not be changed.
If an area belonged to us 500 years ago but never since then, it should belong to us – it is the cradle of our nation.
If a majority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must enjoy the right of self-determination.
If a minority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must be protected against your oppression.
All of the above rules apply to us, but not to you.
Our dream of greatness is historical necessity, yours is fascism.

On the question we should resettle them in whatever state they wish to go to. Every state has a retail industry.

Make them citizens. Draft them immediately, and send them overseas as part of the American Liberation force liberating their wartorn homeland.

If we wouldn't declare war on a place, we shouldn't be accepting refugees from that place. If we would accept refugees from that place, they should be expected to contribute to the war effort to liberate their home.

So easy for you to say when you don’t have to worry about being persecuted for who you love, or for your religion, for political opinions, or if your region or country is embroiled in a civil war.

Places where refugees come from should be the last place we go to war with.

Wherever they want to go.

I would not suggest NC... Recently it has became more xenophobic, and the only languages that are common in my part of it are English, Spanish, Mandarin, and Korean, so many refugees will have an even harder time (at least in some cities the refugees could find people who spoke their language more easily). Even my grandparents, who once sent money to help someone commit international jaywalking from Mexico to NC are anti-immigration and pro-wall now (but neutral or barely against deportation)...

Send them to the research triangle, Asheville or Charlotte. Any college town would be great too. Ultimately it should be up to the refugee where they’d like to initially go

The war effort is the primary cause of refugees... You even implied yourself that being wartorn was bad. How is a 'do as I say, not as I do' mentality helpful? Evacuate all non-combatants, that is a golden-rule-compliant solution.

Life must end all violence before violence ends all life.

There's actually a whole federal department that does this, there isn't any one area that refugees are settled. Individual cities are allowed to do things like this but most cities are not Bismark, ND.

Indiana or Kansas might be a good place. In fact, the inhabitants wouldn't even know they're there if they refound their society in the vast depths of corn and wheat. No potential backlash, as long as the refugees just replant the crops they eat and only emerge in large groups chanting monotonously.

Also for the record refugees are already settled in North Carolina, although the number has been decreasing over the last three years as a result of federal policy.
