State Department Plans To “Resettle” Syrians In Spartanburg, SC: Obama Funds Catholic Immigration Effort


April 18, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – – It should come as no surprise that the Catholic Church, in the U.S. governed by the U.S. Conference Of Catholic Bishops, is receiving significant funding from Team Obama to “resettle” alleged refugees [primarily of the Islamic faith], too many of whom are simply illiterate foreign born leeches who know a good thing when they see it. Once upon American soil, these hapless souls quickly fall prey to social manipulators, such as the Council on American Islamic Relations, labor unions and the ACLU who use these wretches as cannon fodder to advance their interlocking agendas. [Note: As an example of the incestuous financial arrangement between government and the Catholic Church, according to a Forbes Magazine study, Catholic Charities, USA is the largest charity in the United States. In 2012 the organization's total revenue was $4.337 billion. Of this, the amount supplied by the government was $2.832 billion in funding, fully 2/3rds of total receipts]

Within the federal government, most of the decisions to relocate foreign populations are, for some reason being made by the Department of State, perhaps the most dysfunctional, idiosyncratic and corrupt of all cabinet level departments…and that’s saying a lot.

It has been the State Department’s practice that rather than attempting to integrate these “arriving” populations [many of which are unfamiliar with running water and inside sanitary facilities] in some logical manner within pre-existing communities, more often than not, hundreds and sometimes many thousand are just dumped upon unsuspecting American cities and towns which are then expected to house, clothe, feed and provide for the basics needed to sustain life. In the majority of cases State doesn’t even inform the localities affected to be expecting the deluge of foreign born immigrants.

According to federal statute, these new arrivals can become citizens merely on the strength of having lived here for five years, the quickest pathway to full citizenship available.

States’ charter in these matters is breathtaking. Please note that not only is State making decisions which materially alter the demographics of America, it also makes decisions about U.S. population policies using guidelines developed not by Congress, the judiciary or even the president, but the United Nations.

“The Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration provides aid and sustainable solutions for refugees, victims of conflict and stateless people around the world, through repatriation, local integration, and resettlement in the United States. PRM also promotes the United States' population and migration policies . More about PRM»” [source, U.S. State Department, also see, Population, What are the Issues?]

We have written extensively about the specifics of one aspect of these resettlement programs for nearly ten years, specifically that of the U.S. State Department wholesale importing of Somalis and almost literally dropping them off without any prior notice to the community [please refer to William Mayer, Beila Rabinowitz, Are Minneapolis Taxi Fares Going To Support Al-Qaeda? , October 6, 2006].

It’s a long piece and we will leave it to the reader to investigate it in depth to his or her satisfaction, but the pattern is always the same. The newly arrived immigrants receive a stipend and often assistance in seeking employment. When companies, out of the goodness of their heart hire them, outside agitators, among those noted above, descend on them like vultures. In many cases, upon settlement labor strife quickly follows, overwhelmingly involving alleged abuses by these companies which are charged, often formally in court, with denying the immigrants the right to practice their religion, which is always Islam. As detailed in the Minneapolis taxi case, drivers were enforcing Shari’a concepts on their passengers, refusing to carry guide dogs for the blind or people toting packages – often gifts - containing bottles of wine or other alcoholic beverages

The irony of pretend citizens limiting the civil rights of genuine American citizens should be obvious to all, but unfortunately it’s lost on many.

With this as background we turn to the newest outrage, brought to light by among others, Congressman Trey Gowdy [R, SC].

Gowdy has demanded from the Secretary of State to provide him with the details of the department’s intentions to resettle refugees from Syria into the hamlet of Spartanburg, SC which has a population of less than 40,000.

"The Honorable John Kerry
U.S. Department of State
2201 C Street, NW
Washington, DC 20520

Dear Secretary Kerry,

I write regarding the potential resettlement of refugees to the Spartanburg, South Carolina, area. It has been reported by media outlets, and confirmed by staff within your Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM), that a resettlement agency submitted a proposal to open an office in Spartanburg. In addition, it is my understanding that the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) approved the request to resettle a certain number of refugees in Spartanburg…” [source, Gowdy Requests Information On Spartanburg Resettlement Program , Trey Gowdy Congressional website]

What is not mentioned in the Congressman’s letter is that those whom the Dept. of State is seeking to resettle are “refugees” from the jihadist conflict in Syria.

“The U.S. is likely to resettle up to 2,000 Syrian refugees this fiscal year and potentially thousands more in fiscal 2016 under the State Department-led effort. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has the authority to approve the admissions.” [source, Martin Matashak, Republican presses for delay in resettlement of Syrian refugees , The Hill]

Throughout the many years of this program’s existence there have been no efforts whatsoever to vet the refugees to determine their possible intention of committing terrorism against their new homeland.

We have seen this phenomenon repeated among Somali refugees, some of whom have either returned to Somalia to conduct jihad or traveled to any one of the increasing number of countries where an Islamic insurgency is underway.

“Nearly two decades after their parents fled war and famine for the safety and abundance of Minnesota, Ohio, and the wet suburbs of Seattle, a steady stream of young Somali-American men are headed back into the fight.

They are going to wage jihad in a homeland they barely know, driven by a heady brew of nationalist and religious fervor and lured by what experts say is a sophisticated recruitment network exploiting vulnerabilities in the Somali diaspora." [source, Michael B. Farrell , A US pipeline for jihad in Somalia? Somali-American men are returning to their homeland to fight alongside Al Shabaab, an insurgent group with ties to Al Qaeda, Christian Science Monitor]

It is said that, “no good deed goes unpunished,” and in this case it's manifestly true. Though having investigated this matter over a long period of time including numerous calls to both the State Department as well as some of the sponsoring “bleeding heart” groups such as the U.S. Conference Of Catholic Bishops, we have never received an understandable justification for taking such disruptive actions nor have we been successful in determining why this influx of third world Muslims is not being, at minimum, vetted for its terrorist potential.

It should go without saying but with the exception of The Hill, we have found no examples of the legacy media willing to touch the coming Syrian deluge. Americans only become aware of their government’s gross negligence in the matter when these unfortunates start showing up a social service processing centers or become involved in sham labor disputes about which the participants have little or no understanding.

Given the Somali experience, with dozens of jihadists returning to wage “holy war” in various theaters, we expect nothing less from the incoming Syrian wave. There is however a difference. Syria is the home base of ISIS, which just a few days ago issued a slickly produced HD film [not a video, the production values are totally professional] in which it threatens to destroy America. This news source was one of only a handful which saw fit to even cover the matter. [see, Mr. Obama Are You Listening Now? ISIS Releases HD Movie: We Will Burn America, April 16, 2015]

In the face of the rapidly spreading ISIS caliphate, for the State Department, aided by bought off stooges such as the U.S. Catholic Church, to even contemplate such an action is as irresponsible as it is reprehensible.

If the Catholic Church is really interested in finding out why attendance at Mass has plummeted, they need look no further than the indefensible actions of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
