    Exclusive: Small Town America Transformed By Somali Migrants

    Exclusive: Small Town America Transformed By Somali Migrants
    Paul Williams, PhD

    Newly arrived Somali immigrants have transformed small towns and cities throughout the United States into tuulas (Somali villages).

    The process is underway in such places as Lewiston, Maine; Shelbyville, Tennessee, St. Cloud, Minnesota, Clarkston,Georgia, and Jamestown, North Dakota.

    The Jamestown Sun reports that 400 Somalis have applied for public housing in the past four months.

    The Somali immigrants in Garden City, Kansas and nearby small towns have created the Somali Community Center of Southwest Kansas in order to tap into public welfare programs. Within this section of the heartland, white Christians have become the minority.

    One of these days we will be sorry we were so generous in allowing so many immigrants that are hostil to the US here. We WERE a nation of immigrants, but immigrants that had the same values. Their culture does not mix with ours. When are Americans going to wake up to this atrocity?

    What a unfair and horrible atrocity to all Americans when people that come from uncivilized, savage, nation tribes are placed with absolutely no restrictions in quiet surburban neighborhoods without warning. Thats my opinion.
