Between 1,500 and 2,000 Syrian refugees have been brought to the United States this year. Barack Obama has announced that he will take in 10,000 as early as next month, that is up from 5,000. The problem is that we have no way of vetting them, almost all are Muslims and 75% are men of fighting age.
This is at a time when a global jihad is taking place and jihadists of all stripes have promised to consume the West.
At a briefing at the White House on Thursday, press secretary, Josh Earnest, said the United States would “accept at least 10,000 refugees in the next fiscal year,” which begins Oct. 1.
Earlier, Secretary of State John Kerry, said at a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill that that the total number of refugees taken in by the United States could rise to more than 100,000, from the current figure of 70,000. State Department officials said that not all of the additional 30,000 would be Syrians, but many would be.
Josh Earnest said that 100,000 figure cited by Kerry is a misunderstanding because the screening takes 18 to 24 months. The FBI Director Jim Comey said there is no way to vet them.
According to the New York Times, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has already referred 18,000 cases to the United States for resettlement. Many are torture survivors, people with special medical needs, and women who head households, more than half are children. They will all require government assistance.
In the last five years, we have taken in 115,000 refugees from more than 70 countries, mostly in the Middle East and Africa and an overwhelming number have been Muslim.
Not every refugee is fleeing terror. Some are terrorists and we can’t determine who they are. They don’t have records and they come on the honor system.
In the past 40 years, the United States accepted more than 70% of the refugees who sought asylum, that’s 70% of all the world’s nations. More than 90% live off some kind of government subsistence and 100% are offered full benefits.
If you listen to the Democrats in Congress, you will hear that we are greedy and selfish for not immediately taking in 65,000. Almost all the media is praising Germany for taking in a limitless number of “migrants.”
Germany is taking 800,000 this year and 500,000 each year. Angela Merkel said Thursday there is no limit to how many “migrants” Germany can take in.
“The fundamental right to asylum for the politically persecuted knows no upper limit; that also goes for refugees who come to us from the hell of a civil war.”
But she also noted that many people from “safe” Balkan countries are coming and said they must go home quickly if they have no grounds for asylum, which almost all don’t.
Traffickers are dropping off refugees on the Autobahn.
They have a population problem. The people aren’t having enough children so they need to bring in foreigners. They won’t have an identity by the time they are through, however. Europe in general won’t have an identity.
Saudi Arabia has offered to build 200 mosques in Germany to accommodate the wave of Muslim refugees there if German authorities permit, according according to International Business Times Thursday.
There is more going on here than refugees fleeing terrorism. Many refugees are well-dressed, are photographed using their iPhones and don’t need help.
The extreme right-wing in Germany, the Pergida, have been protesting – protests which can turn violent. Some refugees say there is so much bigotry against them in Germany that they want to go home.
Venezuela is taking 20,000 refugees and other Latin American countries are considering it.
Forty-two refugees from Syria who ended up in Uruguay protested and want to be sent to another country. They would prefer Lebanon but Lebanon won’t take them out of fear of terrorism.
The media is praising the generosity and goodness of the European nations taking in the refugees. CNN said that the United States has only taken in .03% of the current refugees. We’re “pitiful”, they declared, and they claimed most Americans agree. Martin O’Malley agrees, they say [but Martin O’Malley is so weak, he’d probably surrender Sitka or Brighton Beach to Russia if asked].
Most of the refugees don’t want to leave their countries, they want to be safe in their countries. If we could provide a safe haven for them in their countries, that would be the best for all parties but that won’t happen.
As we speak, Putin is moving his forces into Syria. It will be a Soviet satellite. Russian troops are fighting alongside terrorist al-Assad’s troops. This will cause more disruption and more chaos in the Middle East. Russia and Syria are allies of Iran of course, which will cause more fear in the region and more flight.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a sellout, has weighed in. He advocates for a total transformation of the United States into a borderless land of entitlements without an identity. He has continually advocated for illegal immigration and has toured the country educating illegal immigrants on how to play the system. He supports sanctuary cities and does not support any deportation.
Gutierrez is an America-hater who blames the United States for the refugee crisis though he exonerates Barack Obama and his disastrous foreign policy.
Since Pope Francis is a man of the left, he has become a darling of the left-wing media and of Democrats. Gutierrez wants to “follow his call” and take in refugees and immigrants. Sure, let’s make the Pope the next Homeland Security Chief.
Pope Francis is taking two families in and his Vatican City is surrounded by a wall. The United States needs a wall also.
On the other hand, most of the refugees are suffering and need help.
What do you think we should do?
