In Beaufort County we’re sharing the burden. Recently, four buses of illegal aliens were welcomed at a church in Hilton Head. It is unknown how many more will be coming, but with thousands flooding across the border, it is reasonable to expect more here.
The refugees are being moved in via federally funded transport, and I believe they receive federal EBT cards for food and clothing, The influx to our population will place a burden on the county’s public services, schools, law enforcement and welfare.
We hope church officials will arrange to have them medically screened – thoroughly and as soon as possible. This will help calm nervous residents who have been reading about diseases spreading in other states that also are welcoming large groups of unscreened Central Americans.
The massive relocations of Central Americans – scattering them throughout the country to absorb them into the general population – is disturbing to law-abiding citizens. The United States was founded upon the rule of law, and blatant, wholesale disregard of the law undermines our very foundation.
