Despite Security Concerns, Detroit Mayor Duggan Defies Governor Snyder, Welcomes Syrian Refugees

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan

Despite strong security concerns from “the most pro-immigration Governor” in the country, Michigan’s Rick Snyder, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan says his city will welcome Syrian refugees with open arms.

Duggan says “the D” will house at least 50 refugee families over the next three years…

According to the Detroit Free Press:

“Amid growing opposition from Republicans, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said today that he welcomes refugees to Detroit and is confident in the vetting process to screen out potential security threats.

“Detroit is a welcoming community and it’s welcoming refugees, whether they come from Africa or Iraq or Syria,” Duggan said.

“We’ll fight the terrorists but provide refuge to their victims. That’s what this country is all about. …We’ll do our fair share.”

Duggan spoke on a conference call organized by the White House that also featured Madeline Albright, a former Secretary of State, Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, and the mayor of Austin, Texas.

The speakers sought to push back against criticism from Republicans over the past week that bringing in Syrian refugees poses security threats. Gov. Rick Snyder was the first governor to publicly raise security questions about bringing in Syrian refugees. Since his announcement on Nov. 15, 30 other governors have voiced concerns.”

    • All Dem-run cities are cesspools of crime, anti-business regs., high taxes, and PC intimidation and bullying. The mayor may be getting the $1500 per “settler” that HUD and HHS spew out (that’s what all those high-and-mighty “Christian” charities get) in order to skew US demographics with foreign enemies.

  1. Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan says “the D” will house at least 50 refugee families over the next three years…
    That’s it, Mike…move Dearborn-style Muslims to Detroit. They’ll turn Detroit into a no-go-zone in ten years.

  2. It is much to early to talk about refugees coming to America..if these mayors let in terrorist..look out mayors!

  3. Send them to Detroit, I guarantee right after they arrive they will be asking to return to Syria because its safer, a lot safer.

  4. It is a human tragedy and continue to allow human rights violations in complicity. when a state institution like the UN or accepting and encourage thousands of refugees if mass exodus of individuals and families as Syria or allow illegally entering its territory as the case of Cubans (Mariel), Mexicans etc. etc. which it is the result of dictatorship and civil war that seeks the imposition by the violent intimidation of terrorist Muslim franchises openly commit flagrant violation against humanity without being invaded and banned his books that teach and daily practice terrorism, is fatal to civilization.

  5. Evidently Dugan is getting a kickback on each Syrian relocated to his town, otherwise no one wants these people. With people like this (Dugan) national security takes a back seat to financial gain. This man is either naive or stupid to believe that Obama’s vetting procedures are adequate. We keep flooding the US with refugees from several Middle Eastern and African countries with no regard to the welfare of Americans who are out of work and the hundreds of thousands that are homeless.

  6. He will have blood on his hands if any one of these “refugees” is involved in a terrorist attack in America.

  7. “Detroit and is confident in the vetting process to screen out potential security threats.”

    What vetting process? there is nothing to vet them against.

    What, we are going to ask them if they are bad guys and if the say no they are in?
