Over the last couple of years we have written fairly often about Ft. Wayne, IN and its refugee overload. Here we have a commenter, Ellen, who is obviously from the Ft. Wayne area and who today expressed her strong views at this post from last summer.
We first heard about problems in Ft. Wayne (believed to have the largest Burmese ‘community’ in the US) in the fall of 2007 when the Allen County Health Department became overwhelmed with its refugee case load, including cases of TB. Ultimately the federal government came up with supplementary funding for the health department, but only after the local Congressman became involved. This is the very first story we wrote about Ft. Wayne “freaking out.”
Anyway, here is Ellen today (sounds like a case of a ‘liberal who got mugged’):
As much as I do not want to rant on tne Burmese refugee situation here in Fort Wayne, this site looked like a better site than say, Craigs list. Catholic charities does not want to talk to me, nor does World Relief. My tolerance level for these people, the Burmese and their various tribes, has been breached. As an activist for social justice I am all for “better quality of life for all,” but this group of people “takes the cake” for the capacity of deception, corruption, fraud, towards the American government, as well as towards the American people of goodwill, and generosity.
The first wave of refugees to arrive approx. 15 years ago was of “Freedom Fighters” for Burma, of which many are the more educated, and respected in the community. Then there are the so called “Recruits” of the freedom fighters, and more recently the cyclone victims. These villagers, not so educated, or respected Burmese have an attitude of disdainment, rudeness towards not only other Burmese, but also the majority of Americans, and will do anything they can to defraud, cheat the system, which they do very well by refusing to learn, and use English.
Then there are the “pass-port” Burmese that due to having more resources can make their own way here without a whole lot of assistance,and snub the rest. Having multiple, unsimilar names among family, and tribes leads to cluelessness of “who- is- related- to- whom” when tracking down Burmese criminals. There is a lot of in-fighting amongst the tribes, contrary to the fact that says Burmese are “close-knit group that takes care of its own,” the “tribe rivalry” is something else, is unbelievable unless personally experienced.
I have never interacted with such an awkward group of people that in the majority only scorns, ridicules, my generosity, and then begs for more. I know; my daughter married Burmese-Chinese, and he, bless his heart, has not the rudeness, corruption, disdain that spews from his immediate family, and other Burmese in the community. He has realized the truth for what it is, his immediate family, as well as a majority of other Burmese, are a group seriously infected with sociopathic(sic) illnesses, and whom have drawn the Americans of good intentions into their malicious web.
