8. I'm glad for you that you are so enlightened and all-you must live in some idyllic community
1. There have been issues surrounding health club locker rooms in Dearborn, by muslim women who feel that they need more privacy than the rest of us.
2. I am not living in denial when it comes to Islam's treatment of women. You can if you choose, but I'm not. Name one branch of Islam, other than the very small sect of sufism, where women are considered equal to men?
3. Every school system in Michigan is suffering from the economic problems we are having, except maybe in Birmingham or the Grosse Pointes. 15,000 refugees is a large number-it could increase the demands on an overtaxed school district. If the children of the refugees need language assistance, it is going to cost money out of my pocket, as a property owner. If my property taxes get too high, I can't afford my house anymore.

I live in Warren. I like living there, I like the fact that it has become more integrated over the past few years. But to ignore the challenges presented by integrating 15000 people who are coming from a different country, with a different religion and different social customs, is irresponsible.
