The Obama administration plans to send 100 Iraqi and Syrian refugees to Flint, Michigan, in the fiscal year that begins next month on October 1.
But that plan appears to violate a clause in the federal Refugee Act of 1980 which requires the federal government and director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement to consult with local as well as state governments prior to the placement of any refugees within their boundaries.
“At this point it appears city leaders have not been informed of the details regarding this matter,” a spokesperson for Mayor Karen Weaver and the city of Flint tells Breitbart News.
It’s the same story with the government of Genesee County, in which Flint is located.
“As of this time the Genesee County Board of Commissioners has not been notified of any settlement of 100 refugees from Middle East – South Asia,” Jamie Curtis, Chairman of the Genesee County Board of Commissioners, tells Breitbart News through a spokesperson.
Flint, a city of 100,000, is in the midst of a financial and public health crisis due to high levels of lead in its drinking water after a 2014 change in its source from the Detroit Sewage and Water System to the Flint River.
According to this FY 2017 abstract submitted to the Department of State by Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, which operates in Michigan as Samaritas, the resettlement agency plans to bring 100 Iraqi and Syrian refugees to Flint Michigan in the twelve month fiscal year that begins in less than three weeks. The document was obtained in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump visited the Bethel United Methodist Church in Flint, MI to talk to city residents about the lead contamination that was first identified in late September 2015.
WASHINGTON — Sean “Diddy” Combs said Sunday that black voters won’t get fooled again — insisting that Hillary Clinton has to prove herself before she gets the African-American vote since “[blacks] got a little bit shortchanged” by President Obama.
“My number one thing, though, to be honest, is black people,” the rapper turned mogul told the Rev. Al Sharpton on his MSNBC show Sunday. “I feel like we put President Obama in the White House. When I look back, I just wanted more done for my people because that’s the name of the game.
“This is politics. You put somebody in office you get in return the things that you care about for your communities. I think we got a little bit shortchanged. That’s not knocking the president. …He’s done an excellent job, you know, but I think it’s time to turn up the heat because the black vote is going to decide who is the next president of the United States.”
Diddy, who just opened up a charter school in Harlem, apparently isn’t buying Clinton’s wide lead among African Americans over GOP opponent Donald Trump. Clinton’s spent many Sundays visiting black churches and made gun violence and police shootings a platform of her campaign through talks with African mothers whose children were killed.
“Hillary Clinton, you know, I hope she starts to directly talk to the black community. … It really makes me feel, you know, almost hurt that our issues are not addressed and we’re such a big part of the voting bloc.”
Diddy, an Obama supporter who also donated money to Clinton’s New York Senate race, said it’s time for black voters to get something in return for their political support.
Rapper Ice Cube, one of the founding members of NWA and, more recently, entrepreneur of children’s TV shows and pro-cop films, has just dropped a bombshell of an announcement on the world.
Now, while he did not EXPLICITLY declare his “endorsement” for Donald Trump, he did say, “Donald Trump represents the American Dream. That’s why I like him.”
Bishop Wayne T. Jackson doesn’t understand the controversy.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was criticized for his lack of outreach to black America, so Jackson was thrilled to land a one-on-one Trump interview for his Impact Network, an African-American-owned Christian broadcast network.
It should be a match made in heaven, except to all those folks saying that Jackson is going to hell.
“My phone has been burning up,” the bishop said Tuesday in the office where he will interview Trump on Saturday after an 11 a.m. church service. “And the things people are asking: ‘Is Donald Trump paying me off?’ They haven’t paid me off. You haven’t looked at me and seen a man who’s needed things I’ve always been blessed. It’s not about being a Judas to my people. I love my people. I feel that we should be better off than what we are. This is not an endorsement. This is engagement, for him to tell us what he wants to do.”
