The Obama administration has unilaterally eased restrictions on asylum seekers with loose or incidental ties to terror and insurgent groups, in a move one senator called "deeply alarming."
The change, approved by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry, was announced Wednesday in the Federal Register. It would allow some individuals who provided "limited material support" to terror groups to be considered for entry into the U.S.
Supporters of the change, including Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., argued that the current ban on anyone who has ever aided terrorists has unfairly blocked thousands of refugees.
"The existing interpretation was so broad as to be unworkable," Leahy said in a statement. "It resulted in deserving refugees and asylees being barred from the United States for actions so tangential and minimal that no rational person would consider them supporters of terrorist activities."

He is doing everything possible to infuse this country with third world dissidents and other examples of ‘no redeeming value’. I really believe he is working for destruction of our traditional America so that he can be World King.

We simply don’t need more muslim’s seeking asylum. The Christians are the ones who need help. Letting in people with any kind of terrorist ties..like muslims..is just asking for more Boston bombers. These people do not want to be American’s.
The school he was going to is rife with foreign graduate students like him.
Cloward-Piven. They can’t overwhelm the system with domestic laggards, they have to import as many as they can fro every shiite-hole in the world................
Ping. Link to Judgicial Watch’s take coming up.
God bless you, Doogle. Judicial Watch’s take here:
Muslims who support our enemies are welcomed, homeschoolers and generals who fought leftist coups get sent back to the gulag.
..when you look at the purging of the military...your right
Obama is building up his Jihadi Army.
But the same people feel compelled to spy on Americans and gather and store all sorts of private information, with no legitimate justification.
"Don't forget to wash your hands before signing your new US Passport."
I agree that the given examples may have unfairly been denied because of tenuopus tr ties, but I don’t trust this administration to sort out the farmer who paid a toll to get his flock across a bridge from the schmuck who built timers for IEDs.
