Minnesota Governor Boasts About Refugee Resettlement, Consequences be Damned

Published

on

The Democrat governor of Minnesota, Tim Walz, is a notorious refugee resettlement booster.

Diana Mary Sitek of American Thinker wrote a piece detailing Walz’s grandstanding against President Donald Trump’s executive order allowing localities to shape their own refugee policies.

Walz boasted, “The inn is not full in Minnesota.”

To justify this program, Walz claims that refugees bring benefits to the state. However, he forgot to mention Somali welfare fraud and Somali unemployment, which was triple that of Minnesota’s unemployment rate.

Sitek also notes that local Somalis prefer Sharia law, thus making them harder to integrate into Western society.

She believes that Somali refugees should go back to their countries, but the political class and interest groups pushing mass migration are impeding that. Churches are funded for “settling” the refugees.

Such refugee inflows have grown bureaucracy profoundly, as governments have to cater to these migrants who have low skills and aptitudes conducive towards assimilation. None of this comes free, as taxpayers have to fork over considerable money to resettle these refugees and provide them with public services.

Sitek highlights how former Minnesota governor Mark Dayton told the fourth- and fifth-generation residents of St. Cloud to “find another state if you don’t want Muslim refugees.”

Mass migration is becoming the #1 issue heading into the 2020 elections, especially among GOP voters.

GOP candidates will have to position themselves more firmly and categorically reject refugee resettlement programs if they want to expand their electoral base and remain electorally relevant in the future.

Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020

Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.

Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued. 

According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued. 

Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”

The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”

Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.

Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.

2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
