COMPLEX WOULD BE LOCATED FIVE MILES FROM NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

This website has written exhaustively on the controversial refugee resettlement program in South Carolina.  We were the first website in the state to break the scandal open last year, and we’ve been all over it ever since.

We’re referring, of course, to a coordinated effort by the federal government, liberal nonprofit organizations and the administration of S.C. governor Nikki Haley to settle dozens of refugees (including Syrian refugees) in the Palmetto State against the wishes of local residents.

We reject such an effort … for the reasons outlined here.

Meanwhile Haley – who was explicitly enjoined from funding such resettlements by state lawmakers – is now being sued for permitting them.

The latest developments in the ongoing saga?

According to our sources, lawmakers in the Pee Dee region of South Carolina have been desperately trying to reach Haley to voice their opposition to a new planned resettlement complex in McBee, S.C.

Haley – who has been a bit, um, “busy” lately – hasn’t returned their calls.

These lawmakers say they have received word that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) – in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) – is in the process of relocating more than five dozen mobile homes near McBee, S.C.

The purpose of these homes?  To provide accommodations for a Syrian refugee resettlement.

McBee – located in Chesterfield County – is approximately 36 miles northwest of Florence, S.C. and 62 miles northeast of Columbia.  More ominously, it is located just five miles away from the H.B. Robinson Nuclear Generating Station – a 724-megawatt nuclear power plant run by Duke Energy.

Does this sound like the sort of place our government should be putting a Syrian refugee colony?  Hell no.

McBee is also located within the state’s “Corridor of Shame,” a broad swath of poor, rural South Carolina that features some of the most corrupt local governments and most poorly-run government school systems.

I’ve always heard about Easterling Landing being a third world shithole so maybe this would be a good fit.

I still picture Trump at the end of this Trump U thing, a drunk Steve Martin, in a robe with his pants at his ankles “I don’t need anything. Except this lamp, and this paddle ball game. My lamp, and my paddle ball game. And this pen. My lamp, this paddle ball game, and this pen. That’s all I need.”

Too late now, but this Muslim “refugee problem” could have been resolved with the NATO countries(including the USA) and Russia setting up and defending a section of the middle East for the refugees. One of the most pressing problems, social and economic, at the present time in Europe is dealing with these middle East “refugees.” Some European countries have been overwhelmed and this movement of people has forever changed some countries.
One of the mistakes made during this immigration was thinking that just getting these people out of their home countries in The Middle East would solve this problem. Simply changing the physical location for these people will not alleviate the problem for these refugees.
The problem is “radical Islam,” and they have it ingrained in their hearts and souls. These refugees are carrying a mindset and hatred for non- Muslims that is more dangerous than some transmitted plague.

Simply changing physical location will not help them nor us. And these Muslims have a past history of not assimilating into their new countries.

Well having refugees in Chesterfield County would certainly be an improvement rather than having you live there? Perhaps, just perhaps the real estate market may prove as there is a huge inventory of single and double wides. Rumor has it that your single may become a South Carolina historic site. “Home of erneba”, the biggest racist and asshole in the entire state.

WTF does living within ten miles of a nuclear plant have to do with anything? We have them all over the state. You think the risk higher because they don’t have as far to drive?

We heard this same crap when I was a teenager and South Carolina saw an influx of Vietnamese refugees. Thinly-veiled racist fear-mongering. How about this–when they get here, go meet them. Take them to McDonalds. Encourage your kids to play with their kids.

Chesterfield county has lost 1.3% of it’s population between 2000 and 2004. Mcbee is down 0.9%. It doesn’t seem that there would be many opportunities for employment for refugees in a place that is sending out it’s own citizens as refugees.

Our infrastructure is crumbling! The cost of crime is increasing due to our illegals and immigrants! ISIL has stated they will use refugee program to infiltrate terrorist into the Country. Our borders are wide open to terrorist, human smugglers and drug smugglers!
Ohaley and Obama are immigrants, or anchor babies who have NO heritage, love, nor history here. Neither should have been elected in the first place, much less re-elected.

Exactly how many settlements are required to house “dozens” of refugees? Since FITS, never one to shy away from hyperbole, doesn’t say “scores,” I assume that means 39 people at most.
