Utica the city that loves refuges.
According to an article in CityLab “Refugees are human beings fleeing terrible circumstances; assisting them is just the right thing to do.”
“This kind of wrangling over the true impact of refugees doesn’t get much traction in Utica, where refugees now make up almost a quarter of the city’s population, Bedient says. It’s not really up for debate at this point—it’s a part of the city’s identity now,” he says.
We live in a more culturally rich, interesting, colorful (and even delicious!) community because of refugees.
“Utica—it’s clear—saved Patkovich and her family. But the truth is: They’re helping to save this town as well.”
