If your looking for a place to live that is crime ridden then Dearborn Michigan is the place for you. Want a place to go out and eat then come and move here there are hundreds of Schwarma joints at your disposal. Not even a good Bar burger is available. And if you have children be prepared to send them to Parochial Schools then on top of outrageous school & property Taxes be prepared to fork out roughly another $70,000 tuition for 12 years to keep your kids from having to learn Arabic. Dearborn Public Schools are just a little ahead of the Detroit public school system. All in all I have lived in a few cities and the 5 that I have lived in I would put Dearborn at the bottom. Good Luck

Yes, there are A LOT of Arabs (who by the way originate from the same place as "white" Europeans--THE CAUCUS, hence the word CAUCASIAN--present day Iran) living in Dearborn...MANY of which are CHRISTIAN. "Arab" simply means people who speak Arabic. No religious affiliation is attached to that word. But beyond that, Christians, Muslims, AND Jews are all people of The book--we pray to The One God Almighty. Watching these groups continually fight, when they are actually religious brothers, is saddening. The major threat to America, and Christians especially, are those who continue to uphold and perpetuate these unfounded xenophobic beliefs and values. Media has a tendency to portray one view of Islam--that of a VERY SMALL MINORITY of extremists. EVERY religion, political party, etc. has fundamentalists who have lost the plot. Doesn't make it right to blanket an ENTIRE population of people under that single exaggerated stereotype. I'm a Christian, fiscal republican, and I am happy that the Arab people came to Dearborn. M Why am I happy? Dearborn was well on it's way to economic decline, but the influx of Arab immigrants since the 1980s has revitalized the economy. My grandparents were immigrants from Italy and Eastern Europe, and I'm happy to say they've lived in the same house in Dearborn for 60+ years--something they attribute to the economic growth Arabs brought to the city. The Lebanese food in Dearborn is great, and there are so many cool little spots owned by the same families for generations. Thank God, I have been lucky enough to travel around the world, and have to say that some of the Middle Eastern food in Dearborn rivals that of which I've had abroad in Beirut, Dubai, Paris, Sydney, and more. I apologize for the ranting, but I find it truly disheartening to see a wonderful culture of people stereotyped so horribly. My neighbors growing up were Iraqi Christian. My fiancé is Lebanese American. My friends hail from parts all over the globe--Iranian Jews, Kuwaiti Muslims, Israelis, Russians, and so forth. I want to provide a review of this city--and it's people, in general--that is opposite of the view presented before me. Hatred, intolerance, and violence cannot be solved with more hatred, intolerance, and violence. There is no "Arab movement" against America, but the longer we hold racist opinions against other cultures, the more likely an uprising will happen. History has taught us that, if anything

I see no mention of middle eastern people in the U.S. 2010 census. It appears that the liberals have placed them in a white catagory. Although Spanish and Blacks are separated. Dearborn is the largest population of Arabs in the U.S. they have cause problems against Christian and the Wayne County police do not protect you against Abrabs especially if you are a Christian. Check the court dockets and see that this is true. I assure you that if it were Christians holding a Christian Festival in Dearborn it would not be allowed. Just as Proms are held as girls only and boy only since it is against Muslim beliefs. If Christians wanted to do that the ACLU would be all over it. Don't move to liberal Michigan, especially Dearborn, the home of the next Arab movement against America. (in my opinion) but then what do I know, I just served this country for 23 years.

Dearborn is a great town with friendly people. Dearborn is very close to Detroit, it actually borders it on a large side but it is very safe in comparison. There is a lot to see and a lot of history in the city. It is pretty segregated, the whites live in west dearborn and the arabs live in east dearborn, keep that in mind if you plan on moving into the neighborhood, I would also recommend private schools because the schools are not all that great it is school of choice however and there are 3 high schools to choose from Dearborn High being the best Fordson High school although beautiful not the best academically.

Dearborn, MI - An Arab Fiesta

On my visit to Detroit, one of my Arab colleagues invited me to visit, Dearborn. It is a city known for Ford Motor Company which has its headquarters, here. Besides, it is also popular for the largest Arab community in North America. It may not be an overstatement to suggest that Dearborn is a small brother of Detroit but it is much more refined and well organized. This contrast between the two cities was clearly visible when my friend took me for a drive around town. In fact, River Rouge is so neatly constructed that one would take it as a large blue line, when flying overhead. I was also told that authorities in Dearborn have done an excellent job at keeping crime rates low (compared to other cities in Michigan). It is precisely for this reason that when the government decided to develop Springwell, a clean but less developed city between Dearborn and Detroit, residents of Springwell protested against its inclusion in Detroit. They actually preferred Dearborn. I would definitely move to Dearborn to get the benefits of a small city, yet close to a huge city.
