    Cologne-style sex attacks by migrant gangs occurred in 12 of Germany's 16 states, or 75 per cent, on New Year's Eve, as revealed by German police. Although localised reports of attacks emerged almost immediately via social media, the full scale of the phenomenon is only now becoming clear – and it's having a devastating effect on German society. Some 1,049 men and women were victimised in Cologne on New Year's Eve, subject to a litany of crimes ranging from pickpocketing to gang rape at the hands of migrants and asylum seekers. ... a report by the German Judicial Police (BKA),...

    Japan accepted only 27 refugees last year and rejected almost all applications, officials said Saturday, as rights groups urged the government to allow more people in. The country has long been nervous about an influx of refugees into its homogeneous society and has tightly restricted the number it accepts. Of the thousands seeking refugee status, five were Syrian, only three of which were accepted -- a far cry from the massive influx of Syrians into Europe from the war-torn Middle East nation last year....

Even though polls show that between 13% to 30% of Syrian refugees support ISIS. (That's at least 1,300 ISIS supporters entering America in just one year.) Here's how well refugee vetting works. Senator Jeff Sessions has a list of some refugees in this country turned terrorists. It's a recent list and there were 8 refugees indicted in one month.

    Although the Obama administration currently refuses to temporarily pause its Syrian refugee resettlement program in the United States, the State Department in 2011 stopped processing Iraq refugee requests for six months after the Federal Bureau of Investigation uncovered evidence that several dozen terrorists from Iraq had infiltrated the United States via the refugee program.

    The United States passed its first official refugee legislation to address the plight of displaced Europeans following World War II. Most refugees are displaced from their country of origin to a neighboring country, and then resettled to a third country through international organizations. The United States resettles more refugees than any other country, refugees who go on to contribute to our communities and our economy.

    A case study in Obama's refugee folly The fecklessness of the Obama administration’s despicable “refugee” agenda can be personified. Last August a federal jury convicted Uzbek refugee Fazliddin Kurbanov of three terror-related charges that included working to support a terrorist organization, and amassing explosive materials in his apartment in Boise, ID. Kurbanov is a Russian-speaking truck driver originally from Uzbekistan who began his life as a Muslim. When his parents converted to Orthodox Christianity, the family was subjected to government persecution and they fled to nearby Kazakhstan. In 2009 his parents came to the Unites States, followed shortly thereafter by...

    Telegraph - UK ^ | November 20, 2015 | Gordon Rayner, Rory Mulholland in Paris
    As one of Europe's most wanted men, Abdelhamid Abaaoud should, in theory, have struggled to move anywhere on the continent without being picked up by the security services sooner or later. For two years he had been a known Isil fanatic, recruiting his own 13-year-old brother to the terrorist organisation and becoming linked with increasing numbers of murderous plots. But as he planned his return from the terrorist training grounds of Syria to cause carnage on the streets of Paris, the perfect cover presented itself. He, and others involved in the Paris attacks, could exploit the chaos of Europe's migrant...
  • Walid Phares Explains Obama's Strategy (Why Obama is so pro Syrian refugee)

    PHARES: ...the president has a different strategy. He's getting a lot of pressure by the Iranians. Otherwise he should have long time ago allied himself, partnered with Arab moderate forces such as Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, UAE, they are fighting terrorism very much and very well in Yemen, in Sinai, in Libya, elsewhere, but the reason that he's not going to these moderate Arab forces and asking them on the ground to be boots on the ground is because the Iranians are pressuring him because the Syrian Regime is pressuring him. They don't want those areas, those Sunni areas to...

    In addition to direct federal grants to help refugees, government at various levels provide subsidized housing, healthcare, food stamps, other cash assistance, and free education. There is also a cost to the criminal justice system of taking care of the criminals among them. It’s the Catholic role, in collaboration with the federal government, in bringing refugees to the U.S. that caused Corcoran to leave the church. She told Accuracy in Media, “In 2002, having been raised in a protestant faith, I became a Catholic. For a few years I loved being a Catholic. All of that changed beginning in 2007...

    President Obama threatened late Wednesday to veto legislation aimed at improving screening for Syrian refugees, potentially putting the White House and Congress on a collision course in a matter of days. The veto threat came as the House was preparing the bill -- which sets high hurdles for refugee admission including FBI background checks and sign-offs by top officials -- for floor action as early as Thursday. In a committee meeting, Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, accused the president of confusing the public about the intentions of the legislation. Moments later, the White House issued a statement defending the current screening...

    Yes, it could get bigger. It also could mean furloughs, hiring freezes and program cancellations if a solution can’t be found. “We are going to do the right thing for veterans and be good stewards of taxpayer dollars,” VA Deputy Secretary Sloan Gibson told members of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee on Thursday. “But to succeed, we need the flexibility to use funds to meet veterans needs as they arise.” Without that, he said, “we get to dire circumstances before August. We will have to start denying care to some veterans.” Lawmakers were enraged that the department is only now...

    The journey comes with challenges big and small. Nabeel Hasan had to change his name, after officials spelled his name wrong on immigration documents. “It was double “s” but when they put it in the I-94, they put in one “s”. When I get the ID it must be the same,” he says. His three sons couldn’t join him today and remain in Iraq. With tensions high, he fears the worst. But he hopes one day they’ll join him in America. “This is my wish. Every day I ask God about that,” said Hasan. “We thank God and the United...

    Senate Democrats are pushing a legislative alternative to a House Republican bill that would halt the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the United States, giving themselves political cover to oppose it. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, on Thursday will introduce legislation broadening the debate to visa waivers granted to European citizens traveling to the United States. The legislation, co-sponsored by Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), would block waivers for European citizens who spent time in Syria or Iraq in the past five years. "Let's say France has had 2000 people leave to go and...
