There are so many homeless in the Pittsburgh and surrounding areas as it is and they deserve help before anyone else. And more than that in this economy there are even more struggling families just trying to make it week to week. If no one helps the pittsburghers why should they help anyone else. Just to try to look good for political reasons.

Take care of the homeless and the vets that need help that are already here. Citizens before imagrants especially if there is any chance at all that they could endanger any citizen even if its a small chance . Money and Jobs and healthcare and housing needs to go toward our own first. Also these immigrants are Syrian but they are coming from places where there isnt any war so they arent fleeing for their lives when they are coming from Europe or Turkey like almost every one of them are. This is wrong to put them before actual citizens and its wrong to be endangering any citizen in any amount by letting Refugees in. Im 100% against this and almost every person i know agrees they shouldnt be let in the the USA or into our home town of Pittsburgh.

just wondering where all these people aare going to find jobs? Oh that's right they are not going to work we are going to support them. Tell Mr Peduto I don't want to work anymore and he can support ma and my family!

We do not need refugees who could quite possibly be isis. What about OUR homeless vets Mr.Peduto!? What about the safety of our city & our nation!?

We need to protect our nation and its people before we worry about the problems of everyone else...why is it america looks after all these other countries but cant seem to do the same for those already here!??! Shouldnt we be the priority?? To contain Isis, and protect our people first and then decide who can be let into our nation is what our government should be worried about!!

We have our own homeless and our own veterans to care for. We have to protect ourselves! I'm tired of paying for others when I struggle to pay for my own family and health care and sending my children to college. I want my social security to not be eaten up by the government. If government officials want these refugees you pay out of your own pocket and you pay their salaries!

I want to stay clear of issues that could possibly be avoided. Please think of the safety of your fellow law abiding citizens.
