MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (AP) – Another South Carolina county is on record opposing resettling Syrian refugees in the state.
The Post and Courier reports (http://bit.ly/1NHa76V ) that the Berkeley County Council on Monday approved a resolution opposing the Refugee Resettlement Project and calling on state officials to stop any resettlement of refugees until the General Assembly considers the matter.
Pickens County Council passed a similar resolution last month while the county council in Greenville will take up the matter later this month.
An organization known as World Relief is working with churches to bring about 60 refugees to Upstate South Carolina this year. There are currently no plans to resettle any refugees in Berkeley County.
