A letter to the House of Representatives signed by 72 Democrats insists the United States take in 130,000 Syrian refugees. Representatives Conyers and Lofgren, in a separate statement, want 200,000 refugees.

Representatives John Conyers and Zoe Lofgren want the United States to take in 200,000 refugees and they want 100,000 of that number to be from Syria.

The fact that they can’t be vetted is of no consequence to them.

“It is time for the United States to join the global community for a humanitarian response,” the two lawmakers said. “We should do our part by admitting 200,000 refugees, with 100,000 reserved for refugees from Syria.”

“The president wants to surge thousands of Syrian refugees into the United States, in spite of consistent intelligence community and federal law enforcement warnings that we do not have the intelligence needed to vet individuals from the conflict zone,” said House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul.

He said the president should instead seek to solve the problem “at the source” by developing a better strategy for combatting the Islamic State and the Syrian regime at home.

I’m all for taking in the 200,000 as long as they go to Conyers and Lofgren’s districts. Something tells me few will.

Those two aren’t alone.

Some 72 Democrats, including Conyers, wrote a letter to the House calling for 130,000 Syrian refugees.

“It is our moral duty, as a nation founded on the principles of equality and freedom, to do what we can to assist our brethren who are in desperate turmoil, and are searching for the slightest gesture of goodwill,”  wrote 72 Democrats from the US House of Representatives in a letter to the administration on Friday, according to the Hill.

Lawmakers said the country could easily support the resettlement of as many as 130,000 Syrian refugees, a figure 10 times that proposed by the White House earlier this week.

The letter was spearheaded by Representative David Cicilline (D-Rhode Island).

“The United States is home to 320 million people,” lawmakers wrote. “Allowing an additional 130,000 refugees into our country would make up less than a quarter of one percent of our population.”

It’s not about the numbers. They can’t be vetted!

Whenever Barack Obama wants something, he has his minions “pressure” him to do it. This could be the case here because Secretary of State John Kerry said the president would take 100,000 refugees, up from 70,000 and many of the add-ons would be Syrians. Josh Earnest told reporters Kerry misunderstood. It’s doubtful Kerry misunderstood.

The fact that they can’t be screened because there are no records and no information from the ground is of no consequence to these so-called representatives.

More than 75% of the refugees are men of fighting age. The media likes to show the photos of the women and children to play on sympathies.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees does not tell us their ages, but does tell us that 75% are men.

Only 51% are Syrians, the rest are from all over the Middle East and Africa.

We spend all this time and money to hunt down lone wolves but we are going to let tens of thousands come in?

    • We have 20 millions illegals mexicans here now. All men of fighting age stay home and fight or does our president want our military go die for them while they set here on our dime doing nothing. Check the military grave yards in other countries after WW-2 . You will never see A foreign cem. here In US unless they are here taking our country.

    • All men. They’re looking to make an army of ghosts to kill all of us. No reason to do this. Hungary just got rid of their unwanted. Germany on the way and our govt is bringing in ALL ILLEGAL MEN? For what? Child reproduction; rape; beheading and more? This has to end.

  1. I Fear’,..

    Today, Obama is (among other acts of treason) sabotaging the defenses of America, by opening our borders, extending the amnesty invitation to all of Central America, and ISLAM.!..

    Obama want’s to set up a jihadi pipeline into America as the final part of his
    fundamental transformation of O’Bamamerica!

    Obama Orders That America Take In 70,000 Islamic “Refugees,” But Now John Kerry Says That The Number Will Be Up To 100,000 Muslims.

    Then I read another link.. Obama wants amnesty for 100 million muslim terrorists living in the U.S.
    before he leaves office..!

There aren’t Women and Children so that should tell you or be a true “”””RED FLAG”””” but our government thinks we are stupid, dummy’s and cannot think…That the Sheeples would be thinking they are doing their civil duty to the human race till the refugees show them their true intent and Obamas reason for money disappearing funding HIS OWN ARMY….

  2. These are not refugees. They are invaders. They are Obamas animals sent here to destroy this country even more than it has been destroyed. The are only cowards that don’t want to live in their country. They left the women and children there to be harmed. If they wanted to, they would stay in their country and fight. Doesn’t it seem odd that there are millions of refugees and only 50,000 ISIS animals. They could overpower them if they wanted, but they are lazy sissy’s. They want other people to take care of them. By the way the majority of them are well-to-do families. You can tell by their clothes and all of the technical gadgets they have. OPEN YOUR EYES DEMOCRATS

  3. The World Turned Upside Down. I spend my life work in the military to defend the nation against all enemies….and my feckless leaders force my enemies to make an end-run around me. Now enemies are to our front, sides and behind. The coming civil war will be epic.

  4. The Democrats are insane and they all should be in prison for treason. They have no regard for America or national security, they only operate on emotion, and never heard of logic! We must purge them from the body politic to the far reaches of Hell!

  5. Fighting age men, no women or children? Rapes will rise first, then murderous attacks. Some people in DC got paid with Arab oil money.

  6. 72 Democrats want 130000 terrorists let into the US……those 72 Democrats should be removed from their position and sent to Syria if they love these animals so much…..go there to help them we don’t want them or you in this country

  7. Hey demoncrats you don’t own this country. No more immigration. Close our borders now. It is time to remove the traitors in Washington now.

    • This is part of the Islamic takeover of the world. It is suspicious that Saudi Arabia wants to build mosques in places were refugees land. It is part of the Islamic caliphate. Hello.
      I think this mass immigration in the Middle East is part of the caliphate plan. We must not allow anymore refugees in this nation period.

      Muslims believe leaving their homeland and entering other nations and overthrowing them pleases Allah.

  8. Close our borders now. Nobody else. It is over. Deport all 30 million illegals and arrest these traitors in DC and across this nation who have committed treason against our nations sovereignty. It is over.

  9. We can no longer be the doormat of the world. No more. Illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers about $113 billion a year at the federal, state and local level. The bulk of the costs — some $84 billion — are absorbed by state and local governments. By we the people the legal subjects of this nation.

    In 2010, the average unlawful immigrant household received around $24,721 in government benefits and services while paying some $10,334 in taxes. This generated an average annual fiscal deficit (benefits received minus taxes paid) of around $14,387 per household. This cost had to be borne by U.S. taxpayers.

    But these numbers are not truthful because many illegals are paid under the table and pay no taxes thus they are able to collect more in benefits. There is no proof that illegals are paying taxes. (Social security theft). This is criminal embezzlement and fraud. We would like to find out who gave the orders to give benefits to illegals and government jobs to illegals because they belong in prison. Let them pay restitution to our treasury and American legal citizens and their families. All this is coming out of our pocketbooks.

    Illegal immigration has destroyed our:
    -education system
    -competition for jobs
    -healthcare system
    -wages
    -welfare fraud
    -social security fraud
    -housing
    -illegal tax benefits
    -and opportunities for legal immigrants because they get lumped in with the lawbreakers
    (This is illegal immigration from every country).

    Our children are failing because there are too many school districts who are overrun with illegals. This destroys the education system for our children. Because they don’t speak our language and they have no right to be there. Our nation is no longer number one. And if our leaders and law enforcement had been doing their jobs all along our nation would still be the number one super power.

    A major issue going on right now and it must be stopped. Illegals are overtaking the school districts. Getting on the school boards and getting rid of American legal citizen educators. This is an attempt to overthrow the nation that we built.

    And just for the record my parents worked in the fields as children and there were no illegals or Muslims in those fields working the land. They did not build our nation period.

    I’m so tired of these people who repeat lie often enough so they think it makes it the truth. Wrong. We have this same issue going on with racism. It does not exist. Blacks sold blacks into slavery not whites.

    This is an illegal invasion. An act of war on this nation’s sovereignty.

    And this country has in the past interned or deported immigrants during times of war (WWII). And it should have been done after 9/11 or we wouldn’t have the problems we are having now.

    Our leaders have failed to do their jobs according to our founding fathers.

    Illegals don’t live in the real world. Yeah they break into our country illegally and get everything free and then say they are helping our economy. No they are raping our nation and stealing our benefits that do not belong to them. This nation’s economy and the legal American family was better off 20 years ago. It has nothing to do with IQ. It has to do with theft and ignorance.

    Many of us migranted here legally in the late 1800’s and we followed all the rules to become a citizen and we didnt receive free anything. And I got news for you when my parents were working the fields (my mother at age 9-16) there were no illegals or Muslims here working the fields with her family. Americans did those jobs before you did. They built this country not your illegal alien asses. No matter where you come from period.

  10. The greatest threat to this nation is this illegal unconstitutional radical foreign regime now occupying Washington DC. Our founding fathers would have closed it all down, abolished and dealt with these traitors to our sovereignty.

  11. How about we hold all 72 Democrats accountable as accomplices to every crime committed by these refugees. Watch how fast they change their mind. This country has become the joke of the world.
