Springfield Mayor Asks Feds to Stop Flow of Refugees

Springfield Mayor Dom Sarno says the city has been disproportionately targeted for the resettling of refugees.  Sarno has written a letter to the State Department asking them to stop the influx for safety reasons.  Local charities have settled 1,500 refugees in Western Mass since 2011 using federal funds.  The vast majority of refugees have been funneled into the city of Springfield.
