Barack Obama’s plan to fast-track Syrian Muslim refugees the FBI and CIA say we can’t possibly vet has been fully implemented. Anywhere from 36,000 to 54,000 could come into the United States every 90 days.
Currently, we are taking most refugees from Jordanian camps where terrorists have been known to infiltrate. The process for refugees we can vet normally takes 18 to 24 months but Obama is doing it in three using foreigners and the UN to screen applicants on site.
President Obama’s deadline of September 30, according to a new report on the temporary processing center in Amman, suggests that the 600 interviews they now conduct a day will actually bring in 36,000 refugees by the target date, according to The Center for Immigration Studies.
Actually, it could bring in over 50,000 if they are doing this seven days a week. It’s also unclear how this affects families of anyone approved for entry. The first family of five was visibly much larger than five when they were filmed at the airport.
That family was sent to middle America – Kansas City.
What is the urgency?
Gina Kassem, regional refugee coordinator at the U.S. Embassy in Amman, said that the 10,000 target was “a floor and not a ceiling,” with a possibility to increase the number. She also reminded reporters about the role of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees in referring the most vulnerable cases to the U.S. for review. Priority is always given to traumatized groups, such as victims of torture or gender-based violence, she concluded.
However, the first family to come over does not fit this category. They are possibly economic migrants.
The U.S. House quickly passed a bill to effectively stop the admission of refugees from Syria and Iraq, but the courts have effectively green lighted the program with two recent cases in Texas and Indiana.
Why are Americans being unnecessarily put in danger for a relatively small number of refugees? It’s Russian Roulette with US lives.
