They did not study refugees resettled in the US, but I’ll bet they would opt for cold hard cash over stuff too.
Former British Foreign Secretary David Miliband, the CEO of one of our top nine resettlement contractors, the International Rescue Committee, who himself likes cash (and is paid nearly a half million dollars as CEO if the IRC), co-authored this piece that reveals refugees like money!
The study apparently concluded that giving refugees money didn’t encourage alcohol consumption, drug use, or smoking (duh! most are Muslims who don’t have those infidel vices anyway).
The study also found that giving them cash was not a dis-incentive to work. Really?
Are “humanitarian” bucks going to fund Jihadists?
They don’t drink or smoke it up but I wondered if they might give some of their cold hard cash to fund more terrorist activity. I bet researchers at Yale didn’t ask that question!
Here is the article, read it yourself since I am out of time and energy right now!
I also wondered if the “refugees” might prefer cash to being resettled in your home town, but alas I assume they didn’t ask that question either.
Come to think of it, we might be able to save ourselves some serious money if we paid them to stay right where they are!
