LAWSUIT AIMS TO BLOCK CONTROVERSIAL PROGRAM 

S.C. governor Nikki Haley and one of her cabinet agencies have been named as defendants in a lawsuit aimed at stopping the taxpayer-subsidized influx of refugees in the Palmetto State.

The suit – filed on behalf of Walter “Brian” Bilbro – seeks to put the kibosh on this hugely controversial program, which imposes immediate and long-term financial obligations on South Carolina taxpayers (hence our opposition to the resettlements).

The program also poses legitimate security concerns – as evidenced by the involvement of refugees in the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.

Bilbro’s attorney is Lauren Martel – who filed a cease and desist motion against the U.S. State Department last September on behalf of Upstate, S.C. political operative Michelle Wiles.

Haley and her scandal-scarred S.C. Department of Social Services (SCDSS) are named in the legal action – along with a Lutheran ministry and “World Relief of Spartanburg,” the organization we exposed in this exclusive report last April.

Previous resettlement campaigns couched as “evangelical” efforts have in reality been front groups for liberal campaigns like the National Immigration Forum – a group that’s received funding from organizations affiliated with billionaire liberal financier George Soros.  In fact one of the groups receiving funding from Soros – the so-called “Evangelical Immigration Table” – has a South Carolina presence.

World Relief – whose top executive makes hundreds of thousands of dollars a year – received $38.8 million of its $56.8 million budget (roughly 68 percent, according to 2012 data) from taxpayer-funded grants.   Beyond the initial government subsidization of these settlements, taxpayers are also placed on the hook for ongoing expenses related to education, housing, health care and other basic needs.

“We are called and mandated to care for the poor, the helpless, and the vulnerable,” the group says on its website.  “It is not someone else’s job. It is in great part the responsibility and the privilege of God’s people.”

We’re not going to argue that point … however we will continue to argue (strenuously) that this “responsibility” and “privilege” cannot be imposed on taxpayers who are already struggling to get by as it is.

“This website is all for compassion,” we wrote recently.  “And those who wish to come out of their own pockets to provide cradle-to-grave support for refugees ought to be allowed to do so.  But as we’ve noted repeatedly over the last few months, compassion cannot be compulsory.”

And even if it could be made compulsory … this nation (and particularly this state) cannot afford it.

Nonetheless, Haley has been financially supporting these resettlements through the SCDSS budget – even though she was specifically enjoined from doing so by budget writers in the S.C. General Assembly.  In fact she has continued to support the resettlements even in the aftermath of the Paris attacks.

Hopefully that will be corrected in the current version of the state budget.

Bilbro’s case against Haley is already drawing national attention, with one conservative activist citing the “clear and present danger” of the refugee resettlements as well as “the economic burden placed on the backs of hard-working citizens.”

“Mr. Bilbro, in my thinking, is doing the only thing left for him to do when faced with legislators who do not listen or vote in ways that would protect American citizens,” Dr. Rich Swier wrote on his website.  “In fact, after reading this lawsuit, I conclude that any legislator or elected official who isn’t actively seeking to stop the Refugee Resettlement program fails in their Constitutional duty to protect life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for their constituents.”

We concur …

They are not working in England. They are on public assistance and getting additional assistance if they bring additional wives.

In California, the immigrants you speak of cause massive gang-type crime, a massive heroin problem, get free medical while paying no taxes (including multiple babies at hospitals), have a tradition of using young girls as drug mules and messengers and then shooting them in fields, have a tradition of abduction/rape of underage girls as a form of marriage, fill our jails and prisonsn and send millions out of the country to Mexico where they plan on retiring.

“..“responsibility” and “privilege” cannot be imposed on taxpayers who are already struggling to get by as it is.”
The world would have been much better off if a coalition of Arab countries, Russia, United States, and NATO countries would have secured certain areas in the Middle East as re-settlement regions. It would have cost money and probably generated conflicts in certain areas, but what we are doing now is just not working.

Well if you dummies would quit voting Republicans in, maybe you’d get better education and better jobs. It’s not by accident that all the Red states (mostly in the South) have the highest poverty rates. You dummies keep voting in those who screw your best interests for the best interests of corporations. Decades of doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result.

Otis, I have been wondering about that. Knowing that very little today is what it appears to be on the surface, I have a conspiracy theory from hell on this which I will save for later.

I will say that I halfway expect him (if convicted) to get an exceedingly light sentence “because he has cooperated” .

The “because he (or she) has cooperated” line seems to be the catch phrase for dealing with criminals who the PTB had no choice but to prosecute, but who they would rather have kept it all swept under the rug for if they had their druthers.

Oh yeah! I too had that thought, Taz. Talk about Karmic blowback!!!!

I am mystified that Fits seems determined to ignore this story and serious potential undertones it generates. Wondering if the Lexington Crime Ring had a word with Will.

As I noted earlier, given that very little in the news today is as it appears on the surface, I have a whopper of a conspiracy theory with regard to this incident and what was said/not said in the initial news accounts.

For now, I really don’t believe he will get much of a sentence, if he lives to make it to trial and jail.

Yeah, the Get out of Jail Free card can also be bad for your health. Seriously, this guy is an idiot if he isn’t hollering for WitSec. If he knows enough, and there is every reason to believe he does, the cops should be threatening him with letting him go on bail. ;-)

I wonder if Mr. Bilbro is a Christian? Perhaps he missed this: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” But then again that was just the gospel of Matthew, not Rush, Trump, Cruz or Fox News.

Then establish safe camps for them in their part of the world and help them over there. No need to spend the extra money and take on the extra risks to bring them over here; unless of course, there is an ulterior motive or agenda.
