York County, South Carolina has voted 4-3 to oppose the settlement of Syrian “refugees” in the county. York has roughly a quarter of a million people and is located just south of Charlotte, North Carolina. The mostly symbolic measure passed after an emotional debate in which three council members placed Leftist values such as “tolerance” and universalism over the well-being and safety of the public.
Governor Nikki Haley, a liberal Republican who led efforts earlier this year to take down a Confederate flag at a Statehouse war memorial, has asked the US government not to settle Syrians in the State. That was a reversal of her previous position in support of bringing Third World “refugees” to South Carolina. The change of position followed high profile terrorist attacks by Muslim immigrants in France and California which left scores dead and wounded.
Aiken County, South Carolina also recently voted against bringing in Syrian refugees.
Despite popular will against the move, the US government has already begun resettling potential terrorists in South Carolina and other Southern States. Thousands more, we are told, are on the way. The lack of any say as to who can cross our borders or settle in our land is just one of numerous drawbacks to Washington, DC’s rule over Dixie.
