International Organization for Migration

I was at the Newport News Transportation Center this morning to transfer between buses (Route 961 to Route 101). Waiting on the 101, there was a group of 5 ethnic Indians with a guide. 4 of the 5 were carrying bags from the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The bags had their names, plus "PHF JUL 31". ("PHF" is the airport code for Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport). They had Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) 30 Day bus passes that had first been used yesterday.

I wanted to greet them and welcome them to our country. However, they were busy with the guide, then kept to themselves. As a first generation American, I didn't want to do anything to make them uncomfortable.

Anyone familiar with the IOM? I had never heard of them. Figuring any group worth it's salt has a website, I Googled up their's http://www.iom.int

speaking of NN. this is kinda off subject, but do u think they'll have the study complete and have final plans on where they're gonna run the light rail by this fall?

The map I saw earlier this year had an alignment from CNU to just north of Mary Immaculate Hospital.

that's it? (lol)

so the Alternative alignments are future plans or were they just plans to where to build the alignment? cuz one i think the A3 alignment went to the Colisuem area

The long-term plan is for a line Williamsburg - Hampton via Newport News.

Michael and Henry: quit disrespecting the VBTA and take your blogs down.

Especially your pro-conspiracy blog, Michael.

And Henry: quit disrespecting Mr. Greenmun.

The VBTA Troll is back. Klan Summer camp must have ended.

Got to love the nitwit. On the one hand, he calls light rail "the choo choo to nowhere." On the other hand, he opposes extending it to somewhere.

The only group in Virginia Beach that would embrace such an idiot is the VBTA.
