In an announcement made Thursday afternoon, the White House confirmed plans to bring 10,000 Syrian refugees to the United States. There is no word yet on what the vetting process will be for refugees or how the White House plans to assure Americans the process will prevent ISIS terrorists from making their way into the United States.
"The United States, at the direction of the United States, has played a leading role in addressing the dire humanitarian crisis in the Middle East and North Africa," White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Thursday during the daily briefing. "One thing that the United States can do is to begin to let more Syrian refugees into the United States. This year, this fiscal year that will end this month, the United States is on track to take in about 1500 Syrian refugees. The president has directed his team to scale up that number next year and he's informed his team he would like them to accept, at least make preparations, for 10,000 refugees."
Earlier this week, House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul expressed serious concern about national security and the acceptance of refugees from Syria.
Were a compassionate nation and this is a tragic situation but I also have to be concerned as Chairman of Homeland Security about the safety of Americans in this country and the concern that I have and that the FBI testified to is that we dont really have the proper databases on these individuals to vet them passed and to assure were not allowing terrorists to come into this country and until I have that assurance, I cannot support a program that could potentially bring jihadists into the United States, McCaul said in an interview with Fox News. We dont know who these people are and I think thats the bottom line here and until we know who they are, we cannot responsibly bring them into the United States.
"Both the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI have told me privately that they don't support bringing in Syrian refugees because of the threat they pose to Americans," McCaul continued.
Details about the importation process for refugees have not been released. When they are, we'll be sure to bring them to you.
Well, that is good news.
Don’t ever accuse Obama of being a “do-nothing” president.
He’s doing something...
More evidence that the inmates are in charge of the asylum.
Someone is going to die or be raped because of this. And it won’t be anyone in Washington, DC.
Why not give refuge to Middle East CHRISTIANS? They are the endangered.
Here’s an article from 2012 by Peter Sutherland saying that Europe should bring in migrants from all over the world to make Europe multicultural and end nationalism:
His short resume:
- Honorary Chairman of the Trilateral Commission
- International head of Goldman Sachs
- Former Chairman of BP Oil
- Chairman of the London School of Economics
- Former Attorney General of Ireland
- Chairman of the Global Policy Inst. (Soros-backed)
- Advisory Board of Eli Lilly and Allianz
- Director of GATT and the WTO, 1993-1995
And an explanation of ‘Transnational Progressivism’:
If it isn’t obvious now they are trying to erase borders and bring about a one world government, I don’t know what would.
Let’s settle these people right next to the President’s proposed retirement Home Property or his presidential Library!
The emperor has spoken and nothing can be done about it.
So suck it up, Peasants.
Barry Soetoro has a house in Chicago that’s unused....send a couple dozen Syrian refugees to that house to reside in ! eh.
I wouldn’t be surprised if at least a 1,000 of these are terrorists. ISIS’s goal is to infiltrate refugees by at least 10%.
Cool post! Needs to be posted in every refugee reception center.
My God, this POS really wants to get us killed, doesn’t he?
What was your first clue?
You’re just figuring this out now??
Great poster, but one correction needed:
They want to give away our stuff and our jobs-— never theirs.
Last in, first out.
I’m so depressed. My father died before this bastard was elected. My mother preferred him over Hillary and asked “What can he do that would be any worse than what she would do?” My father said: “A lot.” I still think he died because he saw what was coming.
