Will he listen for a change?
In the wake of the recent state governments lashing back against Obama’s immigration plan, another storm front is brewing in the small towns of Montana.
Rural citizens of Montana are fighting back against plans by city dwellers to plant Muslim immigrants in small towns across the state. A protest rally began at 10 a.m. in front of the county courthouse in Missoula, Montana.
This is not expected to go unopposed. If this rally holds to any of the similar rallies in Twin Falls, Idaho, and Fargo, North Dakota, a contingent of pro-refugee demonstrators will show up, too.
Forty-eight out of the 50 states have been shunted with the nearly 1 million refugees over the past 35 years, in over 180 cities and towns, thanks to the U.S. State Department and the United Nations.
The two states that have remained “uninfused” are Wyoming and Montana.
Since 9/11, only five refugees have entered Wyoming through the resettlement program. Montana has received only 61, and the last one moved in in 2008. Idaho, a neighboring state, has received over 10,000 in the same amount of time.
