WILL STATE LEADERS LISTEN?
Opponents of a controversial refugee resettlement program are urging South Carolina’s leaders to push the “PAUSE” button. And yes, because those letters are capitalized you’re in store for a nifty acronym …
“P” stands for “pause the program,” which is what U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy suggested back in the spring (shortly after this website exposed the inner workings of this government-subsidized scam).
“A” stands for a requested “audit” of the program – although at this point it’s abundantly clear what’s going on. Federal tax dollars are being routed through liberal foundations to bring these refugees to America – at which point state and local taxpayers must provide for them.
“U” stands for “uncover” – as in uncovering the role of the United Nations in the program. This is obviously tied more toward national security concerns over the UN’s vetting procedures (or lack thereof).
“S” stands for “suspend” – as in suspending the flow of tax dollars toward resettlement efforts. Palmetto state budget writers tried to do that earlier this year, but S.C. governor Nikki Haley overruled them).
“E,” the last letter, stands for “explore” – as in exploring other options.
We support the “PAUSE.” In fact we’ve been calling for a halt to this program for months – arguing that such compulsory compassion is not something this country (and certainly not this state) can afford. For our latest coverage of the issue, click here.
It should PAUSE for all immigration. Instead the Republican Congress is spending 1.6 Billion more on Central American “children”.
who you think is gonna pay your social security? americans don’t have enough babies. you wanna be japan?
Because we are so overloaded with unfilled jobs that we need these immigrants to fill them?
Yes. White Americans won’t pick fruits and vegetables.
Conservatives and libertarians hail the poor fighting each other for breadcrumbs as a crowning achievement of capitalism, struggling their hardest to accept even harder work, even longer hours, even worse conditions, for even less pay, so that the “other guy” doesn’t get it and put them out on the street.
Seems more like a disease to me.
Yeah but they got
That’s because the people who own orchards do not want to pay shit for hard labor. They prefer to pay the wages demanded by undocumented immigrants who work for less than minimum wage and no benefits and can’t report their employer for abuse because they would be deported.
But start prosecuting companies who hire illegals, and you will see how fast those jobs start paying enough for Americans to take them.
THEY DO GET BENEFITS! LOOK into this and -see! the list is unlimited!
Maybe if the employers would market the positions better, pay more, give more reasonable expectations, they wouldn’t be shitty jobs and they wouldn’t have trouble filling them?
WE do not need these immigrants, for even if they take the lower paying jobs, WE TAX PAYERS PAY FOR EVERYTHING FOR THEM!- so- the low paid jobs, become,- VERY HIGH PAYING JOBS!
FREE EVERYTHING!- ARE THE BENEFITS FOR ILLEGALS AND IMMIGRANT WORKERS!
It costs 20, 000 + to have a baby…LOOK HOW MANY THEY COME HERE AND HAVE!
ALL, AT TAX PAYERS EXPENSE
Once again, you validate your screen name quite well. So the answer to the pyramid scheme that might be our Social Security program is to breed more and more babies (also known as uterine roulette, where you keep playing until you get a tard, a’la’ Sarah Palin), or to bring in more and more non-productive minorities who drain the welfare systems, clog up our courts and jails, and bring general surliness and unpleasantness wherever they might be found in large numbers. Gee, thanks, but no thanks.
Lemme see, praying five times a day come hell or high water plus demanding special accommodations for those prayers once their numbers reach a certain level, does not equal productivity. That is why about the only thing of value islamic countries produce is oil, and that is not truly something they make, but a substance found naturally in the ground.
STOP spending money anywhere else, expect – on our own people.
Who is stepping over our own needs to takes care of others, first ???
Time to put them all in their place- eliminate their job, since they do not respect our own people and our own country.
We do not need them, at all- for anything!
“YOU ARE FIRED”!
motherfucking americans are such rank stinking cowards! what the hell happened to you people?? there was once something vaguely admirable about you, but maybe that was just a movie. you’re a fucking mob of chickens. the refugees??? because….remind me again.. what the fuck do the refugees have to do with anything that happened anywhere??
Why don’t you write that on a poster board and stand in front of the State House so many more can benefit from your opinion? I think a few stinking cowards would express an opinion as well.
Those cowards just comment here. Right, Taz?
Why should he do that? So you can honk at him as you drive home and brag to your friends about how you “confronted” some jerkoff? Oh please, anything but that!
The “E” in PAUSE should stand for “end” – as in shut it down.
Well, if DSS is involved in funding it can’t Haley direct DSS to stop funding it since DSS is a cabinet agency?
Seems she should have some thing to say about the situation.
SOMETHING is odd, here, in that she said “she did not know,- about the entry/placement of the refugees” ???
SHE would not allow for anyone to make her look bad, and they would not risk their job, by keeping her in the dark
YES! 100% END THIS IGNORANCE. UNSAFE- UNTIL, WE, ARE!- COMPLETELY,SAFE. WE THE PEOPLE OF SC , DEMAND- THIS TO BE OUR VOICE! ..WE SAY- NO, TO THIS PROGRAM!
Thank you Rep .Trey Gowdy you , truly. care. about the safety of SC and it’s citizens.
Trump is right —- again.
alllah yuhibbuk kl
Great kindergarten mentality behind these groups isn’t it?
Ummmm…Kemosabe…”not something we can afford?”…really?…is Will so dumb he thinks this is about money?
Why yes, Tonto—he DOES don’tcha know—which is as stupid as saying the deaths of the CA 14 is ahem…funny
South Carolinians know that Nikki Haley and these flag-ripping SC legislators don’t have the testicles to fight
But when the Tea Train removes Obama’s gihadist wannabees and legislators’ testicles—it all will be alright !!!
…you’re in store for a nifty acronym…
Why yes, Ms. Haley, I am a psychiatrist—lie down on my couch and tell me what’s wrong
You say you knee-jerked and ripped down the flag of patriots and want to sing a new song?
You what?…you rejected the Legislature’s attempts to suspend resettlements, and now
You’ve been rejected for a VP slot by EVERY contender—bought the farm and the cow?
Well yes of course your political future is OVER, Ms. Haley, and tho you’re politically dead
Well…you could be Joe Wilson and the legislators—next year they get handed their heads !!!
The “U” in PAUSE should stand for unconstitutional. As in, it’s unconstitutional for the States to tell the Federal Government what to do on immigration. Do to your question at the top: “Will State Leaders Listen?” I don’t know, but a simple answer is: It does not matter whether they do or not because they weren’t elected by a majority of the Electoral College and don’t have Article II power to enforce the laws (which include the Refugee Act of 1980).
(*To* your question at the top)
