Deported US missionary vows to return to Dominica; says it’s the will of God

Jason Grogg

A missionary from the United States who was recently deported with his family from Dominica is vowing to return saying it is the will of God. Jason Grogg told Dominica News Online that he wants to come back because he genuinely loves the island and its people and there is a need for “strong biblical leadership in the form of a righteous man and a righteous family.”

“That seems to be lacking,” he stated. “There doesn’t appear to be a singular or a group of strong Christian men… we are sure to be the pastors who are standing up and admonishing the government for their evil, their corruption, for their keeping the people down, for keeping them enslaved to their agendas.”

Grogg moved his family to Dominica from the United States which he described as a “collapsing society” because of Covid and post-Covid lies, rampant homosexuality, transgenderism, LGBTQ, and sexual perversion.

He said he asked God to show him a place or society that can use a righteous man and family.
“Some place to work, some place to that good land, good water,” he remarked.

“Also I was looking for a place that had a strong constitution, much based on the same vein as the US constitution and more than that if I can find one based on God’s word…”

He said Dominica was the ideal place after learning about it from a mentor.

“It didn’t take me long to figure out that, after reading, looking at the nation’s prayer, the nation’s anthem, knowing that Christ is on the flag and how many times God and Christ were referenced when it came to all things of governance, written governance, not the ones that are currently in charge, written governance…” he stated.

Grogg said he also needed a place to raise his children, so that he doesn’t have “to worry about the public pressure that was going to be placed on my children and to mutilate themselves, such as the transgenderism that is pushed very hard by the perverse, sexual cult here in the United States.”

But his stay here in Dominica was far from ideal. Grogg, his wife and two teenage daughters were arrested by the police on April 17, 2023, when a gun and ammunition were found inside a 40-foot container that the family used to store their belongings. He pleaded guilty and paid a fine of $9,250 for the release of his wife and daughters. On May 4, he was rearrested by customs officers at Douglas Charles Airport and held in remand at the State Prison. He was eventually granted bail in the sum of $50,000. On March 6, 2024, he and his entire family were deported from the island after the Director of Prosecution, Sherma Dalrymple issued a “notice of discontinuance” to the court ending all matters involving him and the state.

However, all of this has not dampened what he described as his love for Dominica and its people because according to him, the island is now his home.

“Everything I own is in Dominica,” Grogg said.  “So why would I leave that? I am going to fight for my right, for my children, our library with 3,000 books in a shipping container that has been held hostage by customs for almost a year now. Dominica is our new home. While we may be US citizens, the United States is no longer my home. I was working towards citizenship.”

Additionally, he said being in Dominica is clearly where God wants him to be and he must be obedient to what God wants him to do.

“And even though a lot of people see this as something to them would appear as if God is saying, well no you can’t do that, you don’t want to be there,” he said. “But if that was the case then clearly, it would have required all of my belongings to be brought back. At the same time, it would have been very clear legally that we were truly deported under criminal auspices and we were not. My lawyers still do not have, after over a week now, my lawyers still do not have any paperwork saying that the customs case has been dropped nor do we have any deportation paperwork nor do I have my passport. So the Government of Dominica has stolen my passport. So if it was really God’s will or intent for me to be back in the United States then Dominica would have done it in a way that is legal and right and whole. They would have allowed my family to move off the island in a way that would allow us to live our lives elsewhere.”

He believes the will of God is involved.

“If it was not God’s will for me not to be back in Dominica, then I would have no recourse,” Grogg stated. “But because they illegally deported us, that needs to be said, they illegally deported us. We have no paperwork. They stole my passport. If they had done things legally, then I would have very little or no recourse. However wicked people do wicked things and I am a fighter. That’s how God made me and I will fight for my wife and my kids and I will fight for what is right.”

Grogg said he is presently in talks with “some high-level law firms” to find out the legality of the entire matter.

“If we find out they illegally deported us, we gonna go all the way,” he said. “If we have to go all the way to the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, we are going all the way.”

He also said the they will be going after the individuals who ordered their deportation.

“Whatever is to be done, we will be doing,” he remarked. “Whether they need to be brought to court and they need to be prosecuted for their illegal actions, whatever it takes …” He pointed out this will be done even though he understands the plight of the average Dominican but “if you are told to do something by a government official you do it or you lose your job, however, you are still responsible for your actions.”

Despite all of this, Grogg encourages people to visit the island.

“Dominica is a beautiful place, blessed by God,” he said. “Lots of water, lots of fertile land, and a society that is willing to listen to common sense, to the truth, and to God’s word.”

    Poor you, I feel sorry for you, no matter who; besides the dirty Chines who are taking Dominica from you all you tolerate; however from his nation comes the barrel of food daily to save maybe your damn life you hate.

    How many Barrels of food comes from China from Dominicans living and working in China?
    How many illegal Dominicans are in America, some working illegally, some are even able to collect welfare to live on. Suppose Grog return and decide to urge the immigration and naturalization department to seek out the illegal Dominicans in his country and deport them would you appreciate that.
    You know if he want to be vindictive there is a way he can get the organized!

    Guy there are Dominicans in New York living there for more than fifty years without documentation; you all had better be careful when you start victimizing foreigners in Dominica.
    Worry about the Chines who are spitting in your faces in the country of your birth, and not any American!

    The adults should have been deported, the minors should be kept back for re-education.

    Winnie Mandela said “When the white man came to Africa he came with the bible we had our land, now the white man has the land and we have the bible”.
    Dominica is a beautiful country and that is what these so called evangelicals want. In US they think Trump was sent from God to make them rich and that black people are beneath them. They carry guns with which they kill lots of black people and never go to jail for.
    This man is a white supremacist.
    Also people have been leaving the Islands since time immemorial. Look at the countries which speak English, all immigrants from the island of Britain – the rest is history.

      Why do black people think that a dead white man on a cross can save them? I have heard the saying all my life that Jesus is coming soon.” What’s the definition of soon? People, stop that belief because there is no white man coming to save you. How do you expect the people who committed the most heinous crime in the world to deliver you? I see statues of white men still in the churches to this day and I think to myself, ” that’s really brain
      washing.” My people, stop believing in myths and allegories. No white man who hates you is coming back for you.

    Mr. Grogg is justified in taking umbrage in the manner his family was deported from the country. At least, he and his family should have been given some time to gather their documents and other possessions to take back to their country of origin.

    Having said that, Mr. Grogg should know that God is not mocked. There are sufficient intelligent Dominicans to chart their own path. His insistence that God wants him in Dominica is nothing but religious fanaticism. Dominicans don’t need a Jim Jones – like cult prophet.

    Speak brother speak……..none of dem can stop you……and sending you away in that fashion is fuel for you to continue speaking!!!!
    de charges against Choksi were dropped also!!!
    Are you a hot potato?
    Is our government afraid of you?
    Skerrit have a particular way of avoidance when he appears to de public to be guilty of something.

    God is awesome and powerful. If it’s his will, then, you and family will be back. Man cannot fight God. You may be facing challenges right now, however, if God wants you here no man can stop that. You will be victorious! Keep the faith!

    Dominica is a gift from God, many of the citizens don’t understand how blessed they are. I lived in the US and I always longed for that day to return home. There is no place like Dominica. Every morning when I look out my window from my bedroom I am greeted with the beautiful Ocean and Mountain Views, I go to my backyard and I am mesmerized with the river, mountain and sea views. There is no other place that I would rather be. I love my land of birth Dominica.

    Keep doing God’s work and you will be rewarded!

      You simply don’t know what you are talking about. Dominica then has no comparism to Dominica now. That’s why everyone who gets a chance is fleeing away. So don’t make comments like that to Dominicans like me who know about the sorrowful state of this country.

    The continued mark of colonialism, White supremacy, and patriarchy. How dare he use religion as a way to force himself and his family upon the Dominican people. He is an extension of centuries old plantation logic and the way White people used religion to justify their hate and violence against Black people. Good on Dominica for deporting him!

    Mr Grogg,

    You are not a righteous man. And the problem is every time you show up in the media you are condescending to the Dominican people even if you say you love them. Of course there are plenty of righteous men here, who don’t need your “leadership.” Missing from your discourse is any humility or apologies for dishonoring the rules of this society that state NO GUNS.

    Further, I can see why you were deported, when you post your website which states that you are a Christian militant. That states “We trust that God is preparing this island for His people.” Which implies God’s people are not Dominicans, but more people like you who disrespect the rules of this society? I’m sorry, Mr Grogg, many of God’s people are already here in Dominica.

      Recently, one of the roman catholic scumbag told his congregation not to support the do nothing! A bunch of them homosexual priest are the one helping to keep Dominica down, by helping to keep a damn in power enriching himself, by bleeding the resources dividing it between him and those who supports his corruption!

    Even though you don’t read, these are missionaries, same ones devastating the Continent of Africa. That’s what they do and bring you Jesus, there’s no God and no good in that thing. But, they have taken over.
    You can’t wait to go to a revival, retreat, church on Sunday, when else will you get to wear them clothes you buy to go entertain these missionaries with your song and dance for Jesus. Nothing to do with God, it’s Roman Christian sh.., but you don’t read beyond what they instruct you.

    Whereas he is deported from the country, unless there is something in the constitution which allows hi to apply for reentry, I don’t ever see him returning; unless he stated it would have to be the will of God.
    In the United States however:
    If one were ordered removed (or deported) from the U.S., they cannot simply turn around and come back. By the legal terms of their removal, the deported will be expected to remain outside of the country for a set number of years: usually either, 5, 10, or 20. It’s even possible that the deported will not be allowed to return to the U.S. at all.
    Though true; I am sure his following comments will cause him never to be granted reentry into Dominica:
    “There doesn’t appear to be a singular or a group of strong Christian men… we are sure to be the pastors who are standing up and admonishing the government for their evil, their corruption, for their keeping the people down, for keeping them enslaved to their agendas.”
    True indeed.(FE-D T).

      Francisco, when you see your friend Jason Grog tell him to haul his donkey backside also advise him that he has been properly deported. In this day and age Dominicans cannot allow WHITE FOREIGNERS like Grog to talk down to us in a demeaning manner. His services can be better utilized in his homeland where all types of crimes are rampant, abortions are legal at any stage of a pregnancy and same sex marriage is the order of the day.
