Minnesota is experiencing a steady flow of new immigrants from Muslim countries like Somalia and some residents are expressing concern. The governor has a message for them: If you don’t like it, move.

MN Governor Dayton: Don’t like immigrants, get out of Minnesota!
Update: A reader just sent me another story on the Governor’s demand to get out, here.
Earlier this week, in St. Cloud, MN, the Democrat Governor of the State—Mark Dayton***—made it pretty clear to those who have been questioning the mass importation of Somali refugees to the state—too bad for you, find another place to live.
Oh, and following on the point I’ve been making over the last few days,here, here and here, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was there. As I said, CAIR is now take an up front position on more refugee resettlement (and you can be sure it isn’t the Syrian Christians they are worried about!).
My guess is that CAIR was hoping the whole concept of the Hijra(Mohammed’s demand that Muslims migrate as a form of jihad) would not be out in the open and that we wouldn’t notice until it was too late, but we have. So now they are openly pushing refugee resettlement.
From the Daily Globe (thanks to all who sent it):
St. CLOUD — Harsh words and heartfelt sentiment were exchanged by community members and local officials on racial issues in Central Minnesota at the St. Cloud NAACP Community Conversation with Gov. Mark Dayton. [I don’t get it, doesn’t the NAACP know that all the migrants are taking jobs that African Americans need?—ed]
Hosted Tuesday at St. Cloud Public Library, about 100 people from diverse backgrounds gathered to ask questions of St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis, St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson, State Rep. Jim Knoblach, Minnesota Human Rights Commissioner Kevin Lindsey, Council on Black Minnesotans Community Program Specialist Kolloh Nimley and St. Cloud AFYA Pharmacy co-owner Dr. Edris Kosar.
From the start of the event, Dayton bluntly stated his opinions on the racial tension in St. Cloud and across the state in regards to immigration.
“Look around you. This is Minnesota,” Dayton said. “Minnesota is not like it was 30, 50 years ago. … This is Minnesota and you have every right to be here. And anybody who cannot accept your right to be here, and this is Minnesota, should find another state.”
What a stunning way to respond to the concerns of people in his state.
