It was one year ago that Republican Governor Matt Mead wrote to the federal government and invited them in to begin a resettlement program for the only state in the Nation wise enough (until now) to stay out of it! And, get this, these Somali women arriving in Wyoming as secondary migrants are not shy about saying, if they don’t get more free services they are moving on to a state that is more generous!
RRW There is a big difference between secondary migrants who have already been hooked up with their social services in another state by one of the nine major federal resettlement contractors or their 300 plus subcontractors. They have gotten their job counseling, their kids enrolled in schools, their welfare goodies, their health care.
The secondary migrants have chosen, in our free country! to move on after being acclimated (at taxpayer expense) in another state. That does not mean we have to follow them with goodies (holding their hands) as they shop for new cities and states over the years.
