If the Humanitarian Plan is passed, hundreds of Syrian refugees will come to Fresno. Where will they live? Where will they work? Who will fund this? Where would they go to school?
These major problems are what the city of Fresno should discuss before passing the Humanitarian Plan. If they come to Fresno, will the city pay for their living? How would that affect city taxpayers? Where would they work to get funds and succeed for the economy to make it better, rather than hurt it?
I am a 17-year-old high school student and have trouble finding a minimum-wage job. If they come to Fresno, they will bring children who most likely not know English? Will they get bullied for not speaking English or for their background? Would they buy out farmers to build more houses? Would they take people out of their houses to build apartments?
Syrian refugees deserve a better life in this beautiful nation, yet I do not think it should be in Fresno.
Never miss a local story.
