The rape and violence crisis attributed to the influx of “refugees” may not be a problem exclusive to European countries. According to at least one woman, it’s already started in the U.S.  Karen Sherman recently moved to Missoula, Montana, and stood in front of the local courthouse Monday to warn residents about the “civil unrest” they might be facing should the Obama administration’s plans to plant foreign migrants in the town go through, WND reported.  More than 120 protesters gathered to hear Sherman’s account of what happened in her former hometown of Amarillo, Texas. “Amarillo is overrun with refugees,” Sherman said. She claimed the refugees have been given preferential treatment ahead of Americans to get benefits. “Now they’re expecting us to give them cars,” she said. Having recently moved from Texas to Montana, Sherman is sounding the alarm to what she believes will be a grave mistake should Missoula accept refugees. 
“[Amarillo] is failing because of the refugees. We have 22 different languages spoken in our schools. We’ve got 42 languages being fielded by our 9-1-1 call centers, and crime is just through the roof. We need to exercise caution, especially for the sake of our children,” she said. Sherman said the relatively small town of Amarillo has seen crime rates soar since the refugee influx. Amarillo recently moved up to the fifth most dangerous city in Texas and has one of the highest rape rates in the nation.  Sherman pleaded with her new neighbors that refugees who’ve “been taught for thousands of years of violence and hatred” cannot assimilate to a Judeo-Christian society built on tolerance and respect. “This is a dangerous and foolish expectation,” she warned. “If people don’t choose to follow the law, you cannot hire enough police officers.” Sherman praised Texas Governor Greg Abbott for halting any more refugees from entering Texas, but said it’s too late. She explained once the refugees arrive, they are allowed to bring in as many family members as they want. “It’s called family reunification,” she said. Sherman is hoping it’s not too late for Montana. “You can have female equality, or you can have refugees. You cannot have both.”  
Soft Landing Missoula is working with city and county officials to bring Third World refugees to Montana while the state’s Act For America chapter and other activists are trying to stop that from happening. Soft Landing, like most of the non-governmental organizations working with the government to plant refugees into U.S. cities, is working with churches and faith-based groups behind the scenes to create an atmosphere that is more “welcoming” of refugees. Many of the community organizers have received training or consultation from David Lubell’s Welcoming America organization, which was started with seed money from billionaire George Soros. Lubell is a close adviser to President Obama’s “New Americans” initiative, which seeks to convert millions of refugees and recent immigrants into U.S. citizens with full voting privileges. The modus operandi used by resettlement agencies usually involves sending a handful of refugees at first and then gradually increasing the influx to hundreds per year. Mary Poole, who represents Soft Landing, Missoula, told KGVO News Radio that many immigrants have settled in Missoula over the past 30 years.  She compared the mostly Middle Eastern migrants from Muslim countries like Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq to the Hmong refugees fleeing communist Vietnam in the late 1970s and early ’80s. “We’ve successfully resettled a Hmong community, as well as Belorussians and Ukrainians, who are now members of our community and part of the fabric of Missoula,” Poole told KGVO. “We’re just working on revamping the infrastructure that has already existed here.”  But according to the federal database, the state of Montana has not received any refugees since 2008, and only 61 have been sent there since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
