Many residents of a town in Pennsylvania are furious over the actions of Romanian immigrants who they claim are defecating in public and beheading chickens. Residents have accused the immigrants of throwing around trash, disobeying traffic laws, defecating in public, being disruptive in markets and killing chickens, according to the Post-Gazette.
“What I’ve seen is men and children – never usually the women – the men and the children dropping their pants in the middle of the street, defecating, pulling their pants up and going on their way,” Dawne Roberts told WTAE-TV.
The Romanian refugees moved to the area through a federal program that finds temporary houses for immigrants, according to the Post-Gazette.
More than 150 people attended the council’s municipal meeting Thursday night as several residents complained about the immigrants.
“We’re a very diverse town, we’re very open, but they aren’t assimilating to our laws,” Pam Duricic, a lifelong resident said. “We are understanding that these are immigrants. But this is not the same scenario as our grandparents. They didn’t come here to raise havoc.”
Do you think immigrants should be forced to abide by America’s laws if they are on American soil?
