Even as we are being told that ISIS is developing chemical weapons to kill their opponents, and as they try to acquire dirty bombs, the US is breaking records admitting unvetted Syrian refugees, all of whom are Sunni Muslim so far except for a dozen Christians.
People are sitting in airports for three hours to get on a plane and we’re arresting terrorists every week, yet we are taking in unvetted refugees.
The terrorists have promised to sneak in with the refugees and we have been told by the FBI, CIA and other intelligence agencies that these refugees, especially Syrians cannot be screened – there are simply no records and ISIS has confiscated equipment to make passports and birth certificates.
Last December, Rep. McCaul said terrorists have already attempted to exploit the refugee program.
The Washington Times reported that 80 Syrian refugees arrived in the US on Tuesday, 225 on Monday and who knows how many on other days.
Officials are claiming they are moving faster because of improvements in screening, but this was planned without any changes being made.
The Monday spike is more than the number who entered in January and February. This was only rushed so Obama could get as many as possible into the country before his term runs out though if Hillary wins, this will continue.
Mr. Obama promised to accept at least 10,000 refugees from Oct. 1 through Sept. 30. As of Tuesday evening, the administration had approved 2,540 — an average of about 10 applications a day which will have to increase to 60 a day minimum.
From February through April, The Times reported, the department deployed extra staff to Jordan, where some 12,000 applicants referred by the U.N. were interviewed. The department is also conducting interviews of Syrians in Lebanon and Iraq and said everything is going according to plan.
Last week, Senate Democrats, led by Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, fired off a letter that said other countries are approving refugees faster and demanded that the administration catch up.
“Refugees are victims, not perpetrators, of terrorism,” the Democrats wrote.
Except for the terrorists of course.
In January, however, two men who arrived as part of the refugee program were charged with terrorism-related offenses.
One of them, Iraqi-born Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, was living in Syria when he was admitted as a refugee in 2012. The State Department counts him as part of its Iraqi refugee program, not the Syrian refugee program.
Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) said Tuesday that it was “unconscionable” that of the 499 Syrian refugees admitted to the United States in May, not one was a Christian. It is odd, isn’t it? They are being wiped out.
Democrats filibustered a proposal to require the chiefs of Homeland Security, intelligence and the FBI to sign off on every refugee’s application.
The Customs and Immigration Service still doesn’t check the social media profiles of the refugees while screening them.
The UN is vetting our refugees as is they can be trusted. States have tried to stop the influx and have failed.
Obama thinks ISIS is a JV and the refugees are all widows and orphans.
