Ridgewood NJ, Syrian refugees recently placed in New Jersey Democrat run strongholds , are now fleeing the state because of high cost of living, low quality housing, high taxes and safety concerns, NorthJersey.com reports.

At Ktuf is a Syrian refugee who arrived in the United States in the summer of 2016, and planning on leaving New Jersey for Michigan next month. Ktuf told NorthJersey.com the reason she is leaving New Jersey for Michigan: “Over there, you can dream of buying a house, but here you can’t. Costs are so high, and taxes are so high.”

Ktuf’s brother in law moved to Dearborn last month, and was able to find a home with four bedrooms, a backyard and a garage for $1,200 a month.
Mohammad Hial is one of seven Syrian refugees telling the paper they are leaving or planning on leaving New Jersey this summer. Hial left New Jersey for Michigan last week. “This state (New Jersey) is very expensive,” Hial stated

The sanctuary state of New Jersey also presents other disadvantages .Sikander Khan, who head’s Global Emergency Response and Assistance said in addition to economic reasons, “Syrians are leaving Patterson because of safety concerns.”

Nour, a Syrian refugee who left the country after civil war broke out, was interviewed by The Bergen Record, but asked to only be identified by his first name for “safety concerns.” Last month Nour was hit over the head with a metal pipe and robbed of $2,800. Nour told caseworkers, he was “considering moving to Turkey because of crime.” Nour added his two daughters, 14 and 16, “no longer want to leave the apartment.”

Of the seven families interviewed, five are headed to Michigan. As refugees, where many Syrians are eligible for rent assistance for up to 24 months. It looks like after the rent assistance runs out, many Syrians are not happy with Democratic stronghold New Jersey, and fleeing to other states with better opportunities.

  1. The author left out the most salient part–the part about there being a new governor in New Jersey who, being struck with Trump Derangement Syndrome, and having no intention of standing idly by while (clearly two-term) President DJT proceeds to Make America Great Again, will perversely though steadfastly work to bring about New Jersey’s financial and moral demise. To paraphrase the Geico commercials: It’s what they do. So-called “progressives” in this country are so predictable. They perfectly embody the proverbial scorpion, ineluctably driven to lash out at the frog (read: the rest of us) and kill it midstream.

  2. funny, Most of us will be refugees from NJ. Especially Ridgewood, the way it is developing My secret fear. Will the council somehow be able to impose parking meter rates at Stop & Shop. They do and I am out of here ASAP. Do NOT underestimate this council.
