Breaking news! Spartanburg, SC Christians have run out of “vulnerable” Americans in need of help!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 25, 2016

I’m sorry, I shouldn’t be so cynical, but honestly why are foreign-born poor people needier and more deserving than America born disabled, impoverished and struggling in the eyes of these ‘good Christians’? Is it somehow more charitable to care for immigrants than their own neighbors? Are ‘refugees’ somehow cooler than our own poor people (of all colors!)?

Let me be clear—-if they were using their own charitable dollars they can do whatever they want, within the law of course. But, this is your money and mine and so it becomes our business how they spend it.

Jason Lee

Lee spoke to the Spartanburg Interfaith Alliance this week. Beware ‘interfaith alliances’ as they are behind establishing and promoting new sites almost everywhere they get involved.

Here is the latest from Spartanburg, a year-old resettlement site that brought national attention to Rep. Trey Gowdy’s Congressional district. Even as Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Immigration he was unable or unwilling to stop the flow of refugees to Spartanburg (he probably didn’t want to rock the boat with Speaker Ryan!)

Besides my perennial question about why we can’t help our own citizens (and vets!) first, I want to point out that a year ago Jason Lee said they would only bring a few refugees to Spartanburg, but now he says 120 will be arriving in the upcoming year. Will it be 200 the year after that?

You see, readers, that is how it works.  They get a foot in the door and then keep wedging it open wider and wider!

From GoUpstate.com:

The director of a local aid agency that assists refugees is urging the faith community to become involved in resettlement efforts in Spartanburg.

World Relief Local Director Jason Lee spoke about the process of bringing refugees to the area at a Spartanburg Interfaith Alliance meeting Tuesday morning at Temple B’nai Israel.

He said last year World Relief helped resettle 49 refugees fleeing persecution. This year the organization has been approved to resettle 120 refugees in Spartanburg, he said.

World Relief has 27 U.S. offices and is one of nine refugee resettlement organizations that partner with the U.S. State Department.

“We’re compelled by our faith. … We’re called to stand for the vulnerable,” Lee said.

As long as they are foreign born vulnerable!

Continue reading because it appears that they don’t have enough volunteers to handle 120 new refugees.

By the way, the refugee contractors, like this subcontractor of World Relief, need to have enough volunteers logging their hours to show that they have ‘skin in the game’ so to speak.  The feds expect the subcontractor to offer up something in their phony public-private partnership. Originally the subcontractor was supposed to be putting up cash, but as long as they have volunteers whose hours are measured in cash then they get the green light from the feds for the number of refugees they want.  Each refugee comes with a per head payment to the contractor.  Of course the payment is federal grant money (your money!) and thus there is never any incentive to slow the flow or reduce the number as they build their little fiefdoms.

    Good read and good question.

  3. I am tracking a situation in Austin where a collection of interfaith churches are launching an initiative against bigots & haters against muslims, (Islamophobia). It is called the Banner Project. I am planning an assembly for this crew in a few months. I need info on Caritas of Austin and iACT. Particularly the latest financials on these guys. Any ideas?

      Caritas of Austin should have a Form 990 or an annual report that you should be able to find. I don’t know what iACT is, but it might be harder to get the dope on…If you don’t have the time to dig, see if someone else in group will do it. Keep us posted.

  4. Evidently, these folks never heard the saying “charity begins at home” or read where Moses and Jesus and Paul spoke to those NOT providing for their own needy kin, in rather harsh terms. This business of bringing in foreigners is both uncharitable, and destructive, and needs to be STOPPED!
