The Obama Administration has apparently selected Spartanburg County as a “Refugee Seed Community” as part of the controversial plan to root-out western European culture and traditions from American conservative communities. A World Relief contractor is establishing an office in Spartanburg, according to a report by Lisa Pandone Benson, a national security expert tracking Muslim influence in the United States.
The report indicates that Jason Lee, former pastor of Oak Grove Baptist Church, has been named executive director of the Spartanburg office. Lee was pastor of Oak Grove Baptist Church for more than 5 years according to the report.
He is also a leader with Come Closer Spartanburg, a partnership of faith leaders, Christians and business leaders with a mission to “unite God’s people for the purpose of loving our city to Christ.”
The report quotes Lee saying 65 refugees are expected to move to Spartanburg this summer. He said it is unknown what nations the refugees are from. “Syria, the Congo or Bhutan are possibilities.”
World Relief is a contractor that works with federal agencies to offer resettlement, placement and various services to refugees. According to the organization’s figures,it has resettled more than 25,000 refugees from more than 80 countries.
Many of these Seed Communities are composed of young Muslim families of child bearing age in order to rapidly create a growing community within a community to affect change.
According to their webpage, “World Relief works in partnership with the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration and the Office of Refugee Resettlement to provide initial resettlement and placement as well as employment, youth education and legal services to refugees entering the U. S.
“World Relief also collaborates with the local church and community members to come alongside vulnerable families as they begin their new lives.”
The subcontractors are reportedly well-funded and pay families and churches well for their services.
