Taxpayer Brings Lawsuit Against Gov. Nikki Haley And Others Over State Refugee Plan

Nikki HaleyWalter “Brian” Bilbro, a husband and father of two, has filed a Lawsuit naming Governor Nikki Haley, The South Carolina Department of Social Services (SCDSS), Lutheran Services and World Relief of Spartanburg as Co-Defendants. The allegations in the lawsuit seek equitable and other relief to stop the State 2016 Refugee Resettlement Plan.

Simply put, he wants to prevent the state from settling any more refugees or asylees until a full accounting of the Federal, State, and County monies being allocated for this program are fully investigated.

He alleges in pleadings filed by Attorney Lauren Martel on February 12 case # 2016-CP-40- 00918, that the Defendants are placing he and his family in imminent risk, personally and economically. The placement of refugees and asylees into Richland County where he has vested interests, and in other areas in South Carolina are concerning. Those concerns are supported through documentation from several expert witnesses that give credence to Bilbro’s decisive move to bring legal action against his own Governor, State Agency, and the non-profits involved.

In addition he seeks to stop the use of Family Court being used by asylum seekers as a way to circumvent the vetting process as it encourages border smuggling of children and further criminal acts. According to an expert witness in the case, Jessica Vaughn, Center For Immigration studies, Affidavit, Page 2, states,

“Federal sources, including Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement(ICE) indicate that the majority of new illegal arrival from Central America, including the unaccompanied minors, are not coming to seek safe haven from persecution or civil war (the legal definition of a refugee) but to join friends and family already here in the United States (usually without legal status).

It is widely acknowledged that the families of most, if not all, of these minors have contracted with smuggling organizations to bring minors to the United States. The smuggling organizations understand that the minors will be taken into Federal government custody and then delivered safely to their destination by federally-funded resettlement contractors. The minors are coached on what to say to U.S. authorities and how the process works.”

Vaughn continues,

“The government and its contractors do not conduct background checks on the individuals who volunteer to serve as sponsors for the minors. Claims of family or non-family relationships rarely are authenticated with verifiable documentation, such as original birth certificates, DNA testing, or other means. The establishment of relationships is essentially done through the honor system.”

What is chiefly being used to verify the migrants is the honor system. This vetting process for the unaccompanied minors sounds eerily similar to the one applied to refugees from Syria and other terrorist nations who will be admitted in the thousands this year, according to many legislators who are asking anywhere from 65,000 to 100,000 within the next few years.

Interestingly, Gov. Haley was quoted in August 2015, as to her reasoning behind not wanting GITMO detainees in SC. She said,

“We are absolutely drawing a line that we are not going to allow any terrorists to come into South Carolina. We are not going to allow that kind of threat. We’re not going to allow that kind of character to come in…This is a slap in the face to the people in South Carolina who have sacrificed so much for this country… To turn around and say that you are going (to) put these terrorists in our backyards.”

In my opinion, this is in essence what the Refugee Resettlement Program does. If the highest intelligence officers in the country, FBI director Coomey, and Defense Intelligence Agency director Stewart say that the Syrian refugees cannot be vetted, and that ISIS will attempt direct attacks in 2016, respectively, prudence would demand a halt to the program that settles immigrants from a country riddled with terrorists.

In addition, the refugee and asylee program of SCDSS not only potentially involves child smuggling, drug smuggling connections, and national security risks, but is unsustainable economically according to expert Paul Sutliff, author and researcher. Sutliff states in Affidavit-Sutliff, page 5,

“The South Carolina Plan does not address who pays for those who after 12 months have had their status mandatorily adjusted to Permanent Resident Alien. This cost is necessarily passed off to the South Carolina taxpayer.”

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. 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.

To see the clear and present danger it presents, as well as the economic burden placed on the backs of hard-working citizens and to continue leading Americans into harms way is grounds for a lawsuit.

  1. Gov. Haley has completely lost sight of her earlier stated objectives of keeping these miscreants out of the state of S. Carolina, and is now willing to accept any Muslim dog, that would choose to come aboard! Not sure whom she is pandering to, but she needs to reassess her current thinking!

    BRINGING IN UNACCOMPANIED CHILDREN AND PLACING THEM IN THE CUSTODY OF UNKNOWN PEOPLE IS HUMAN TRAFFICKING. THE DISEASES THEY BRING WITH THEM IS PUTTING OUR CHILDREN AT RISK IN THE SCHOOLS SO, THE SCHOOL SYSTEM SHOULD ALSO BE PART OF THE CO-DEFENDANTS. ALSO, THESE REFUGEES CANNOT CONTRIBUTE MUCH TO OUR ECONOMIC BASE BECAUSE THEY BARELY HAVE ENOUGH EDUCATION TO SIGN THEIR NAMES, AND COME FROM VERY STRESSED POVERTY ENVIRONMENTS WHERE THEY WORK AS STREET VENDORS OR DOMESTICS, AND THEIR SPANISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY IS LIMITED, INTERSPERSED WITH THEIR NATIVE MAYAN DIALECTS. THIS LAWSUIT SHOULD NOT BE SETTLED OUT OF COURT, FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL SOUTH CAROLINA CITIZENS. THIS LAWSUIT SHOULD COVER POLITICIANS AND GOVERNMENT WORKERS, OUT OF OFFICE OR WHO HAVE RESIGNED, OR BEEN TRANSFERRED TO OTHER AGENCIES.

  3. The complaint includes many if not all of the valid points you make in your comments. This will be one to follow in the news. Thanks for reading!

  4. I agree. It seems many of our legislators develop some sort of amnesia once in office.

    I say let’s amp up the reality and start the tidal wave of “class action lawsuit” against elected garden gnomes to which they have IRRESPONSIBLY taken taxpayer monies and promoted an abuse of our social service programs in favor of refugees – who, by the way, seem to have been given carte blanche liberties in practicing POLYGAMY in the United States??!?

    The City of Doral, FL is next in the pipeline as I have been sounding the horn on this subject for years. And to that end, to all(ah) of our taqiyya forked tongue and treasonous politicians who have condoned the tararrushing of our Constitution — never, ever, EVUH underestimate the power of Authenticity.

    Suzanne….they have NO idea the beasts they’ve awoken and we’re beyond PMS’ing… 🙂

  6. Luimar,
    Can’t add a word to what you said. You are spot on!

  7. So thankful that a citizen is taking this action since our state and national governments have not taken action to stop refugees coming into our state who have not been properly screened. When the FBI director says they have not been properly vetted, it makes sense that this program should be stopped until the citizens are 100% sure these people are not terrorists. Another reason for SC not accepting these refugees is the cost to taxpayers to support these people with benefits until they secure jobs. Many of these refugees will not assimilate into American culture. The best method to provide safety for the refugees is to have Safe Zones in nearby countries.

  8. Nita,
    I think he is a brave man for stepping up to do this. Thank you for your comment.

    Donald J. Trump, our next and legal POTUS, has the best idea. To resettle the refugees in Saudi Arabia and have U.N. share in the providing for them. We need to remove the Muslim menace already here on American soil, including terrorist training camps, Muslim Brotherhood. Nikki Haley lost me when she ordered the Confederate Battle Flag removed. Haley doesn’t have roots in America, just a political move. Obama probably made Haley an offer she couldn’t refuse, but we the people can. Let me be clear. Obama doesn’t have the legal authority under the constitution to be in the WH. He is a fraud and congress is covering for him. They ALL need to be held accountable. Open up Obama’s sealed records !
