Video: Vermont mayor kept “Syrian refugee” influx SECRET from locals

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

The mayor of one Vermont town arranged to bring in "Syrian refugees," but deliberately avoided public consultation. A new report reveals she didn't want anyone who was "anti-refugee or anti-anything" interfere with her agenda.

The video shows the director of the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program, Amila Merdzanovic.

Her Facebook page reveals her allegiances:

From Sonia Bailey's new article at American Thinker:

After being kept in the dark since their mayor’s unilateral decision to accept 100 Syrian and Iraqi refugees in October, Rutland citizens should investigate the threatening impact that refugee resettlement has on their own public security, economic stability and community health before it’s too late.


The city of Rutland was chosen as the site to place refugees by the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), one of the nine major federally-funded refugee resettlement contractors or voluntary agencies ("volags"), and its local affiliated field office or subcontractor, the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program (VRRP)

There does not appear to be any legal mechanism citizens can use to halt the mayor's unilateral decision.

Interestingly, on October 1, 2015, the City of Ottawa held a public meeting regarding the settlement of a large number of mostly Muslims refugees.

When officials were asked why there hadn't been an earlier meeting -- to ask Ottawa citizens whether or not they wanted to accept these refugees in the first place -- those in charge didn't appreciate the question:

If this Rutland mayor can do whatever she wants, imagine what the new muslim mayor of London, England will be doing?

Simple: Political Correctness and “Progressive views” will be the end of Western civilization.

Hopefully the mayor’s house doesn’t mysteriously burn to the ground. When you start making decisions based on what you want, not what’s good for those who elected you, then you bring on any disasters yourself. The mayor needs to be removed from office, and charged with being a traitor. Along with the sidekick, who may be subject to the same public backlash. They deserve everything that’s coming to them for their undemocratic actions.

Amila Merdzanovic said, “We don’t vote on it, luckily”. Why, should any government ever consult with the people, we still live under the illusion of having a democracy, maybe our leaders think we have gone past that point now.

What the hell is going on with our politicians? Where do these people get the idea they can do whatever the hell they want….based on THEIR likes or dislikes. They are public servants, elected BY the people to work FOR the people. I think this has been going on for such a long time that we just didn’t notice the arrogance and entitlement mentality these people have. I think there needs to be a revolution of some kind in N. America to put a stop to this. Right at the top of the totem pole is our entitled mental midget and his empty headed wife having a holiday on OUR dime, with no conscience at all!!! What fools we are for putting up with this crap. This woman in Vermont is obviously pro-muslim and it is outrageous that no one knew of her plans to invade their community with Syrians. This will be a disaster.

It seems Rutland Mayor Christopher Louras has not been playing nice with the citizens or city aldermen. The mayor gave the aldermen 4 days to read a 700 page document on the refugee resettlement plan. It appears the mayor and Amila Merdzanovic cooked up this deal in secret.
Amila sounds an awful lot like a dictator to me. You get things on her terms only. Well done Mr Mayor.

Was in Ottawa on the weekend and frankly while shopping in a local store I found myself thinking I was in the middle of Africa. I mean there were a dozen women dressed in what seemed to the style from those countries. They may not have been Muslims but there were more ethnic immigrants than born Canadians.
The city of Ottawa is starting to resemble some of the shut holes these refugees are coming from. I think the locals are starting to integrate into the immigrant culture and not the other way around.
Ottawa is a completely MUSLIB city run by a MUSLIB mayor and councillors.

What’s with the attitude Amila,“our government invites refugees to come into the United States and to come into Vermont. We don’t control it we don’t vote on it……luckily”( sing song voice, smarmy smirk). Look at her face as she says tough shit what anybody thinks. Look at her facebook page, its clear Amila Merdzanovic is on the side of terrorists. She doesn’t just facilitate refugee settlement.

You can catch her faint accent, she came to America from somewhere. Why did she come if all she wants is to dedicate her life to changing it.
Why are these people allowed to bring their hatred with them when they come to the west? Why are these hateful people in positions of power. I would surely love to take care of her smarmy smirk.

The Mayor should be put on trial for treason; if guilty she should be hung as 100 of these refugees could do serioius damage to the town.

Apologies – head up my arse.

She was bought and paid for – someone should ride her out on a rail.


Her FB page seems to be down as well.

if they are going to be on welfare they might as well send where they can do some good like opening up the northern Islands of Canada
