Columbia, S.C. To Become “Sanctuary City” For Illegals

STEVE BENJAMIN WELCOMES UNDOCUMENTED MINORS TO SOUTH CAROLINA Months after S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley assured South Carolinians that no illegal aliens would be housed in the Palmetto State as a result of the ongoing border crisis (oops), the mayor of Columbia, S.C. is opening his arms to the influx. That’s…


Months after S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley assured South Carolinians that no illegal aliens would be housed in the Palmetto State as a result of the ongoing border crisis (oops), the mayor of Columbia, S.C. is opening his arms to the influx.

That’s right … South Carolina’s capital city is about to become a “sanctuary city.”

Scandal-scarred mayor Steve Benjamin convinced the Columbia, S.C. city council to approve a resolution welcoming the illegal aliens this week.  Not only that, he’s created a taxpayer-funded panel to explore ways the government can provide for their well-being during their indefinite stay.

Benjamin’s government is reportedly working in concert with the administration of Barack Obama – who wants taxpayers to shell out more than $4 billion to subsidize the housing, feeding and clothing of unaccompanied minors fleeing the Mexican Drug War (and hoping to take advantage of the U.S. government’s generosity).

Sources familiar with the effort say it’s another attempt to route tax dollars to Benjamin’s favored black constituencies – including many black churches who would receive indirect aid as a result of housing the immigrants.

“Potentially thousands of undocumented minors are on their way,” a source familiar with the plan told FITS.

Whoa …

This website has refrained from breathing fire over the immigration issue.  At the end of the day we’re all immigrants, and the government’s failure to embrace a rational policy regarding legal  immigration is hurting our economy.  Also as former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul has pointed out, the government’s demonstrably failed “War on Drugs” is a major contributing factor to the Mexican violence that’s driving the latest border surge.

Having said that … churches, community organizations and philanthropically inclined individuals that wish to house, feed and clothe undocumented minors should be permitted to do so – as long as taxpayers aren’t compelled to subsidize their generosity.

Too bad one of the only two potentially honest Columbia council persons (Leona Plaugh) will be battling cancer for the near future. I hope she can make a complete recovery because these scum like Benjamin are already running amok with their absolute power.

OH MY GOD August 6, 2014 at 11:37 am

I want to know who these council members are. Seems to me, there might be citizens wanting to protest in front of their homes. Making Columbia into a sanctuary city with criminal illegal aliens (most who do not speak a lick of English and have no real skills) is very bad and reckless judgment.
This news will spread like a wildfire.

I’ve never been to 5 points BTW, just commenting on what has been posted about the area on this blog on numerious occasions.
From what I’ve read on this blog, the pukes commiting crimes in the 5 Points area speak English (actually a dialect but American English just the same).

I was in Five Points last Saturday night and a really tough looking guy walked up to me and said, “Hey, buddy, you want to buy a real nice ring?” I asked him what it looked like. He said, “Don’t look now but the guy standing behind you is wearing it.”

So Moe and Leona vote for this travesty? I had heard that two voted against it and my money would have been on them as the two to vote against it. If the voted for it, I really have lost faith in any common sense on City Council.

BrigidBernadette August 7, 2014 at 10:18 am

Only little Cameron”Concentration Camp” Runyon voted no. Seriously, he has this environmental degree from USC, and I feel pretty certain he is opposed because of the rate of immigration is unsustainable, and will lead to conditions that we have never seen in the United States, a big issue in those circles, and the projections of population density and fighting over resources is worth a read.

CiC, so I went back to find the original article on the council vote, as WIS has a shitty search function on their own website, and lo, results come up–not only at WIS, WLTX–but El Universal, a daily in Mexico. And there is quite a bit of immigration news on their front page, story after story. Were we told 600 under quarantine in New Mexico for chicken pox? They have a big story on it. And there is absolutely no information being given to states from DHS and the White House. They simply refuse to tell anyone where these children are, and school cannot prepare adequately. But again, only a small portion are children, 80% are over the age of 14, so we really should stop calling them children, it plays right into the propaganda.

Cameron’s dad, Nigerian-born son of Southern Baptist missionaries, is spearheading the attempt to break the South Carolina Episcopal Church – to which he is a recent convert – from the national church, because they don’t want “fags” in church with them. Maybe we should be thankful that changing laws and social attitudes have prevented young Cameron from going on a queer-bashing rampage.

Dark_Space August 6, 2014 at 2:22 pm

It’s closer to $1,200 a month. And it isn’t going to churches and shelters – ha, that’s rich. It’s going to “non-profits” set up by shysters who take in $40 per bed per night and in exchange provide shelter and food at a cost of $20 per bed per night, and then keep the $20 as untaxed profit that they’ll use to buy hummers and nice shoes and spend all their time back and forth to and from Washington. I’ve run across many of these organizations in the Carolinas that are doing the same thing for vets who are recently homeless or addicts and in a VA-funded program that pays them between $30 and $100 per bed per night – its a total scam under the guise of charity (funded by taxpayer dollars through grants, and spent on luxury cars and vacations).

shifty henry August 6, 2014 at 2:27 pm

The Colonel August 6, 2014 at 2:28 pm

You can get in on the deal if you offer to take a few in, I’m thinking bunk beds in the crawl space…

Dark_Space August 6, 2014 at 3:14 pm

You’re not far off. Typically a for-profit entity will buy a motel that has been foreclosed on (let’s call it Esé House Inc.), and the same owners will set up a minority-run charity (because having a minority or woman owned company/charity will help guarantee winning the grants for these things), let’s call it Hope for Latinos Charity. Hope For Latinos Charity will fill out the grant being provided by the Federal Government that pays them $40 per bed per night and receive this tax free, then they hire what is effectively their sister company, Esé House Inc. which has just bought a derelict motel that Bank of America has foreclosed on. Hope For Latinos Charity goes to Home Depot to donate supplies to fix up the hotel, they go to local churches and Goodwill-like organizations to donate furniture (to keep costs low under the guise of helping people), then they figure out how much it costs to feed the residents, pay for utilities, etc. – whatever this amount is, is how much they give Esé House Inc., that way Esé House Inc. has no net income to be taxed because they spend it all.

Hope For Latinos Charity is making bank all the while, the executives receive salaries and perks leaving no money left in the charity. I’ve seen this done over and over especially with the rich grants that are given out to these organizations to “help vets” – its all a huge scam done on the greenbacks from taxpayers.

shifty henry August 6, 2014 at 4:56 pm

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton “discovered” that scam many years ago.

BrigidBernadette August 6, 2014 at 3:19 pm

It is warehousing vulnerable people and it is downright evil. The type of person drawn to this activity must surely be scum of the earth. Who regulates this, DSS? Does anybody?

Dark_Space August 6, 2014 at 3:35 pm

DHHS regulates parts of it, but I’ve been involved with cases where we had clear evidence of a facility using the same needles to administer diabetics insulin that is still in business.

The VA covers the vet facilities (which are primarily what I’ve dealt with), but they feel like these vets were on the street the month before and anything is better. They’ll come in and ding the facility a few points for having a light bulb out, or whatever, but never shut them down. The inspectors are complete idiots.

The IRS will get involved if you can show fraud, but honestly you can follow the steps I listed and not be considered fraudulent. I’ve seen fraud cases get prosecuted successfully, but the idiots running the facility could’ve done it a little differently and not broken laws and still made more money.

The real answer is to get the government out of the business of providing grants to charities – if private individuals were making the charitable choices with their own money, it would be better allocated than having the government take the money out of their paychecks as taxes and then deciding from thousands of miles away how to distribute it. I’m not sure the government is even a good resource allocator for public works projects (i.e. roads, bridges, etc.), but they’re definitely not the most efficient resource allocator to charities.

BrigidBernadette August 6, 2014 at 3:43 pm

You need your own website, this is very good information. I was just reading about what appears to be rather massive fraud with Wounded Warriors, another one that claimed to send packages to soldiers fighting overseas but didn’t, and yet another unraveling saga on how people have used Tea Party donors as an ATM. Specifically the reporting of Lee Stranahan on Freedom Works donations ending up in the coffers of John Cornyn. Seems like everything is just falling apart, and you are lucky if you can dodge it.

Good info! August 6, 2014 at 4:16 pm

“ha, that’s rich. It’s going to “non-profits” set up by shysters who take in $40 per bed per night and in exchange provide shelter and food at a cost of $20 per bed per night, and then keep the $20 as untaxed profit that they’ll use to buy hummers and nice shoes and spend all their time back and forth to and from Washington. ”

Dude, that’s seriously what’s going on with Obamacare too. A bunch of companies popped up, “non profits” to inhale the taxpayer money and enrich their crony connected riders of the government gravy train.

Dark_Space August 8, 2014 at 10:49 am

You are exactly right! One out of every 5 worker bee in the United States receives their income from the federal government either as a contractor or as a direct employee (i.e. I’m not including minors, welfare recipients, etc. just the working population) and for every 1 Federal Employee (i.e. W2 employee working for IRS, etc.) there are approximately 3.53x contractors.

Googling Paul C Light will get you some interesting stats around this. We had 14.6mm contractors living off the government teat in 2006 according to his research.

And our Nigga Mayor wants to make Columbia, SC into a sanctuary for Mexicans who hate niggers?

“At the end of the day we’re all immigrants”.

Most of us were born here. Most of our ancestors were not illegal immigrants. Legal immigrants are welcomed.

Smirks August 6, 2014 at 2:44 pm

No, but America was founded on immigrating to a new land and killing off and/or forcefully relocating millions of indigenous peoples. That seems to escape a lot of people.

With that in mind, it is rather amusing to read stuff on social media where people seethe in absolute anger over the fact that some poor guy traveled tens/hundreds/thousands of miles and walked across a desert just to arrive in our territory and commit mass murder and force us off our land perform menial labor for a miniscule income just to support their family back home.

Bible Thumper August 6, 2014 at 3:04 pm

The number that die in the desert or falling off the tops of trains is not amusing. If they are allowed to stay, hundreds of thousands more will make the attempt.

This tragedy is not just driven by conditions in Central America. Many Mexicans suffer similar conditions. This happened because of US laws, and administration statements and policies. Mexicans hide from border patrol, but Central Americans seek them out. This is part USA’s fault.

Tazmaniac August 6, 2014 at 4:03 pm

“Falling” off the train? That is a nice way of putting it. You know, the ones that are still “King of the Mountain” when the train gets here are most likely guilty of having murdered their fellow competitors by having them “fall” off the train. The Doc., “El Norte” depicts the brutal violence on the trains and filmed the hospital/morgue full of the losers, many amputees. Isn’t it reassuring that we get only the strongest killers?

common sense August 6, 2014 at 5:50 pm

No guy. America was not founded on illegal immigrants. It was founded on freedom, liberty, and religious tolerance. Considering that it was not illegal for the first Americans to immigrate here then identifying it thus is incorrect.

” The Obama administration is no longer seeking temporary shelters for undocumented kids. About a month after asking states for help finding temporary shelter for undocumented child migrants—sparking much handwringing over the issue—the federal government now says it no longer needs the help.”

Catch up son. Read some REAL media for a change, Get out of that echo chamber.

Thousands of homeless veterans and all signing up on a waiting list for medical attention, hoping to still be alive by their appointment dates, and a train load of diseased, illiterate, gangster, illegals shows up. The red carpet is rolled out, a new wardrobe, transportation provided and if they get the sniffles they go to any ER in America for free immediate treatment, no ID required. 1.3 billion dollars for the Catholic Church members to house them. Yeah….really sounds fair to me.

I’m with you all the way on this………..

But will these immigrant children be carrying ebola too? Get ready Tea Parties, you betcha, you betcha Sarah Palin and Tricky Quicky Nikki Haley will keep our state free of those evil illegals.

shifty henry August 6, 2014 at 5:01 pm

I throw the gauntlet down to Governess Haley: She will say nothing, do nothing, and avoid any controversy because of her cowardly, uncaring, selfish mentality. C’mon, Nikki — ya’ know where to find me!

“we’re all immigrants, and the government’s failure to embrace a rational policy regarding legal immigration is hurting our economy” —- Will Folks.
Sounds like garbage a twenty something year old Obama Kool-Aid drinker would say. How are we “all immigrants”? How are all African’s in Africa, “immigrants”? How are all Russians in Russia, “immigrants”? “Hurting our economy”??? ROFLMAO!

Foster parents have the ability to collect more than $7,400 per month.
With DHS detainment facilities and military bases swamped, church groups welcome illegals with open arms.

Currently, International Foster Care provides homes for minors from Congo, Somalia,
Eritrea, Burma, Guatemala and Mexico. These youth are usually 15-17 years old, but their ages can go all the way up to age 23. All are in vulnerable situations. Their stories of survival can be painful to hear, yet full of faith and determination. Many have already learned how to murder, rape, and rob. So they will easily fit right in with the culture in Columbia, South Carolina

I’m dumb and un-educated, but all people in the US are aliens, right ?

The entire planet is populated by nothing but immigrants. Think about it.

MS 13 Headed To Columbia August 7, 2014 at 5:03 am

From The National Review Online:
Teenage criminals and gang members from Central America have been using “a loophole” to stay in the country, border agent Chris Cabrera revealed. Under current policy, unaccompanied minors are allowed to stay in the country if they have family in the United States and say they have none in their home country, regardless of their background.

“Even if he is a confirmed gang member, a confirmed criminal, even by self-admission, we for some reason don’t send them back to their home country — we release them into our country,” Cabrera said.

Minors usually end up staying in the U.S. “nine times out of ten,” he added.

As a result, Cabrera said “morale is at an all-time low right now” because agents are “not allowed to do the job that they were hired to do.”

Cabrera was reacting to a recent video of a Border Patrol agent lamenting that citizenship now seems to be irrelevant consideration at U.S. border crossings.

This pathetic moron is looking for a hand job from Obama and a 10 minute interview on MSNBC. What a failure for Columbia.

Nah August 7, 2014 at 10:14 am

Obama’s coke & cock days are far behind him, T-Bone is in “early Obama” stage right now, a good decade behind him…like trains in the night.

Carolina Slim August 7, 2014 at 12:57 pm

Thing is, this is a mechanism being used by those who wish to subvert the Constitutional Republic. The push will be revealed soon and you will hear openly that America is broken and has to have a new way of doing things ( This is why they are screwing everything up?). This new way will be missing the Constitution and will be a system of governance under the UN Charter. It would behoove all to find out the difference in the two systems of governance.

“At the end of the day we’re all immigrants.” HUH? I was born in the US, have the social security number and NON fraudulent birth certificate to prove it. I am an American and resent the constant implication that US policy has always been an open door to immigration, because it has NOT. This southern border madness is a direct attack on this nation, no different than 911 and with alot more long term damage to come. Get real with the constant genuflecting to “immigrants” these 3rd world border crashers are not coming here to become surgeons, software engineers and architects. They are the criminal virulent illiterate scum that those 3rd world countries want rid of, and Obama wants here to destroy society from within. The mayor of Columbia is a complicit criminal in this human trafficking scheme dreamed up by the liberal psychos, and the decent people of the city will bear the brunt of the expense and criminality of this delusional anarchist scheme.

Barbara Shealy July 8, 2015 at 10:58 am

Could anyone tell me whether this actually came to pass, i.e., has Columbia officially become a sanctuary city?
