Refugees Not Wanted

Editor, News-Register:

Open letter to Gov. Jim Justice:

Governor, I’m writing this to you because of the report that you want to re-settle refugees into our state. On the surface, this looks good, at least for you. However, and I can’t speak for everyone in the state, I believe most people don’t want refugees. This has nothing to do with racism, etc. like the left wants to blame everything on.

We have many issues in this state that should be addressed before bringing on more. For the better part of my 50-plus years, we have been at the bottom of every ranking among states. We are one of the poorest states in the Union and yet the fracking industry was supposed to bring money into the state. Who’s pocket is that going into? It never ceases to amaze me that politicians can’t understand why the public doesn’t trust them. They continue to feed us the BS and tell us everything is great. Bringing more people into this state is just your way of getting more voters so you can continue the same old failed policies. Don’t you think its time that you and the other elected officials to focus on who lives her now?

You need to focus on the health of your citizens, infrastructure, jobs and the poorest people in this state. Take care of us first and opt out of the refugee resettlement. Why don’t you get that? In addition, pay your taxes, we do!!
