First Bus of Syrian Refugees Arrive at Palestine City Hall

PALESTINE, TX–As The Dogwood Tale reported earlier today, the first wave of Syrian refugees have arrived in the City of Palestine delivered, literally, to the doorstep of city hall.

“We are working on settling these refugees in area homes,” Interim City Manager and police chief Mike Alexander said.  “What we’re needing now is for local residents to allow one family to stay in their home.  If we are unable to get willing volunteers, we’ll begin placing them in homes based on the most delinquent water accounts.  What this means is, if your water bill is three months past due, and the next person is only two, the three month past due home would be required to accept the refugee family.”

Alexander said that accepting a family of refugees would be mandatory.

“There is no negotiations here,” Alexander explained.  “Let me make it perfectly clear, because I know how people like to argue about things, if you do not allow us to place the family in your home you will be arrested and charged with interfering with government operations,” Alexander said.

The process to place the families has already begun.  If city hall does not receive volunteer homes or lacks a sufficient number of volunteer homes by 5 PM today, the water bill process will begin.

It is expected to take hours, into the late night, to have all the families settled.

    1. But it is protected free speech. That being said, if you read the first article and knew ANYTHING about what’s going on with your city government you would realize that the story has nothing to do with refugees. It uses the subject to make a point about local issues.

  2. This is a joke, people. Why are you all getting upset. It’s funny like it is supposed to be. This is never going to happen. I don’t want these people in Palestine as much as the next person but you gotta know when someone is making a joke and stop acting like liberals getting so butthurt about everything.

    If you were stupid enough to pass this story, or any other story on this page, along as the truth, you should ban yourself from ever using the internet again. It has a 500 word disclaimer that uses the word FAKE, FALSE and SATIRE 20 times. Also, any so-called news story that you want to pass along YOU should do the vetting. One look at the past stories on this page and you should be able to have your little dim lightbulb go on and thing,”Hey…..maybe this is fake. There are stories about a 40 acre sex park, Jade Helm invading Palestine and ones that are even more outrageous”. You, and only YOU are responsible for finding the truth, for passing on true information to your FB friends. You get mad and call the writer names, even threaten violence when YOU are the idiot. Quit reading just the headlines of stories, quit sharing stories without at least a Google search or reading the entire page w/links. It is called your responsibility. Then there are the ones that comment that the page is full of crap….but continue to read it and comment. Nobody made you click on it. Tricky Ricky has never made it a secret who writes this silliness. He is not hiding anywhere. Look him up, he is not hard to find. The real cell warriors are the ones that threaten and cry on here and have absolutely no plans on following up. Internet threats are the ultimate ‘cell warrior’ stuff.

  5. Only a bunch of morons believe what they read on facebook without fact checking with a legitimate news site or doing some good old fashioned research. Newsflash people lie and some people even have what used to be called a sense of humor. Apparently they don’t anymore. Oh well The Dogwood Tale, fuck em if they can’t take a joke. Keep pissing em off that’s what makes this country so great.

  6. I hope they bring something to wear. Last veitmease they placed in my home town as refugees they sat in there front yards nudes. Crazy

  7. Pretty funny stuff. Being an ex-patriot of Jacksonville, whenever I meet a former Palestine, TX, resident up here in North Texas, I always tell them that our hometowns are similar, but Palestine is more sophisticated. On another note, the pop ups and ads on this website of yours are particularly obnoxious. I feel like my computer is being cyber raped.
