America Beware: Your New Neighbors

One of the first things your new President, Barack Obama, did was to make it easier for refugees to enter the United States. That's refugees from the Middle East, to be more specific, from Gaza, and they're not referring to the DP's from Gush Katif.

Unexpected Urgent Refugee and Migration Needs Related To Gaza
Memorandum for the Secretary of State

By the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including section 2(c)(1) of the Migration and Refugee Assistance Act of 1962 (the ``Act''), as amended (22 U.S.C. 2601), I hereby determine, pursuant to section 2(c)(1) of the Act, that it is important to the national interest to furnish assistance under the Act in an amount not to exceed $20.3 million from the United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund for the purpose of meeting unexpected and urgent refugee and migration needs, including by contributions to international, governmental, and nongovernmental organizations and payment of administrative expenses of Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration of the Department of State, related to humanitarian needs of Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza.
You are authorized and directed to publish this memorandum in the Federal Register.

Maybe Israelis should be happy that it's getting harder to get visas to the states. I feel safer in Israel.

DP's from the Middle East are headed to the USA? Do you mean Palestinian Arabs? How about Wyoming. Wyoming supposedly has the lowest population density of any of America's states.
There's lots of room, lots of nice scenery, Devil's Tower, the whole shebang!

That's what the article says.
But honestly, do you think it's safe to give them a place where nobody will notice what they're doing?
