As Minneapolis Riots, Rural Democrat Minnesotans Are Banning Refugees And Joining The Trump Train

Minnisota voters were able to take power back into their hands thanks to President Donald Trump signing an executive order allowing communities to ban refugees from being resettled in their jurisdictions. The move went to a vote in the town of Bemidji, Minnesota.

The town was considered a stronghold for the Minnesota Democrats, but this January the town was thanking Trump for allowing them to have control of their town again. The Beltami County Board Of Commissioners took it to a vote at a town hall meeting packed wall to wall, and voted 3-2 in favor of the ban. It was the second city in the nation to take advantage of Trump’s order, and the first in Minnesota.

“I think we will be making history today,” said Reed Olson who was one of the 2 to vote in favor of keeping refugee resettlement.

“President Trump empowered counties to have a voice in the decision-making process for the federal refugee resettlement program,” Republican State Rep. Matt Grossell said to the Duluth News Tribune. “Tonight, Beltrami County exercised that option.”

Meanwhile in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Rep Ilhan Omar went on the offensive against the move by the people of Beltrami County. She said that she would never had had the opportunities she had to be elected to Congress had she not been accepted as a refugee by Minnesota, and implored other counties not to follow their lead.

What’s even more disturbing for Democrats is that Beltrami County is typically a Democrat County. It has voted Democrat 79% of the time in the past several decades.

Minnesota has also been rocked by terrorist activity that the population is not accustomed too. A large percentage of somali refugees have been arrested for either planning terrorist attacks, or attempting to join ISIS. A number of Somalis from Minnesota already have joined ISIS and were killed overseas. The FBI estimates that at least 45 people of Somali backgrounds from Minnesota have joined ISIS successfully, and another dozen arrested for plotting to join ISIS.
