  • Court rules states have to accept Syrian refugees

    States that refuse to help resettle Syrian refugees are guilty of illegal discrimination, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, delivering a judicial rebuke to GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence, who as Indiana’s governor had tried to halt Syrian resettlement. Judge Richard Posner, writing for the three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, said there’s no evidence that Syrians are more dangerous, and he said even if they are, allowing Indiana to refuse to resettle them would only foist the problem onto neighboring states. “Federal law does not allow a governor to deport to other...

    The State Department admissions for all of September of non-Muslim Syrian refugees represented only 1.1 percent of the total, with 1,825 Muslim refugees admitted, and only 22 from Yazidi and various Christian sects who are being targeted for genocide by the Islamic State in Syria. Admissions for the month of August were 3,159 Muslim and 30 non-Muslim refugees—fewer than one percent. Year-to-date, non-Muslim Syrian refugee admissions account for less than one percent (0.8) overall, with 11,818 Muslims and only 95 non-Muslims of all groups. Those were the numbers as of today from the State Department's Refugee Processing Center. These numbers...

    The United States has admitted 12,500 refugees from war- ravaged Syria over the past year, surpassing President Obama’s target, and expects to admit even more next year, a State Department official said Tuesday. The Syrians are among 85,000 refugees from all over the world who have been resettled in the fiscal year that ends late this week, said Ann Richard, the assistant secretary of state for population, refugees and migration. That is up from 70,000 in the previous year. The White House aims to admit 110,000 refugees over the next 12 months.~SNIP~

    One hot-button issue in the first Presidential debate will be the Syrian and other refugees that are allowed into the country. The vetting process of asylum seekers for resettlement in the United States usually takes between 18 to 24 months. But to meet President Obama’s goal of bringing in “at least 10,000” more Syrian refugees by the end of 2016, the process was cut to 3 months. And on August 29, White House spokesman Josh Earnest announced, “this goal that was met a month ahead of schedule.”

    Despite "heroic" promises to accept 160,000 Syrian refugees, European Union member states have only accepted 6,000 to date while the US alone has already admitted 8,000 of the 10,000 promised. So in light of recent terrorist attacks this begs the question is the U.S. being honorable or just dumb? According to Nayla Rush of the Center for Immigration Studies the answer might just be the latter (although she's far more polite than we are): excerpt at source Given the inability to properly vet refugees, even the New York Times has questioned Obama's logic after a number of refugees have been...

    The pace of Syrian refugees entering the U.S. has surged in recent weeks, government figures show, putting the Obama administration on track to meet its target of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees before the end of September -– and reviving Republican concerns about the security implications. State Department reports show that 2,340 Syrian refugees arrived last month in the United States. That's more than what occurred during the entire seven months after President Obama directed his team to prepare for 10,000 admissions from the war-torn country. Total admissions for the current budget year, which ends Sept. 30, now come to about...

    With ten weeks to go until the end of the fiscal year, the Obama administration continues to admit Syrian refugees at an accelerated pace, and has now exceeded two-thirds of President Obama's target of 10,000 by September 30. The proportion of Christians among those resettled continues to languish below half of one percent, while other non-Sunnis account for just over one percent. As of Monday, 1,515 Syrian refugees fleeing the civil war in their homeland had been admitted since the beginning of July, and a total of 6,726 since FY 2016 began on October 1, according to State Department Refugee...

Rebel Media reporter Lauren Southern visited the Calais Jungle, a large refugee camp generally inhabited by those trying to eventually immigrate illegally to the UK. When the debate over Syrian refugees began in America, our main concern was that terrorists would slip through the cracks. For Europe, they’re finding non-Syrian “refugees” are slipping through. And contrary to the narrative Barack Obama created, that those opposed to refugee resettlement were afraid of “women and children,” there really weren’t many women...

    Who picks the Syrian refugees that resettle in the U.S.? Homeland Security? No, the United Nations, in concert with a global Islamist group. And they're sending "more than 15,000," not the widely reported 10,000. In fact, Washington has no role in selecting the thousands of Syrian refugees coming to your hometown. The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is really behind the effort, and he's referred an additional 5,000-plus Syrian nationals here. The UNHCR is working "hand in hand" with an international Islamist group of 57 Muslim nations — the Organization of Islamic Cooperation — whose founding charter seeks to...

    Texas' efforts to halt the arrival of Syrian refugees have been blocked by a federal judge, who rejected Republican leaders' claims that refugees pose an imminent risk or that states deserve a say in resettlements. The ruling comes days after presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called to block non-citizen Muslims from entering the U.S. following the Orlando nightclub massacre. U.S. District Judge David Godbey, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, had previously knocked Texas for offering "largely speculative hearsay" about extremists possibly infiltrating Syrian refugees. His ruling, which was signed Wednesday, rejected arguments that the Obama administration...

    The U.S. has admitted about 4,000 Syrian refugees, the State Department said Wednesday. That's a higher number than was believed, but still well short of the goal of 10,000 refugees by the end of September. State Department spokesman John Kirby said the number of refugees admitted is "up around 4,000 now." The most recent number had been 2,500 refugees. The plan to admit 10,000 refugees, which President Obama proposed in September, has been met with contempt from Republican lawmakers who claim accepting these refugees is a threat to national security. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was one of 31 governors to...

    The State Department admitted 80 Syrian refugees on Tuesday and 225 on Monday, setting a new single-day record, as President Obama surges to try to meet his target of 10,000 approvals this year — sparking renewed fears among security experts who say corners are being cut to meet a political goal. Officials insisted they’re moving faster because they’re getting better at screening, and say they’re still running all the traps on applicants. But the new spike in numbers is stunning, with more people accepted on Monday alone than were approved in the entire months of January or February.

Mayor Christopher Louras has unveiled a plan, developed in near-secrecy, to resettle 100 Syrian refugees who fled the onslaught of the Islamic State and are exiled in sprawling Jordanian camps.

    “Louras made no apologies for excluding the public from the planning. If the proposal had been floated earlier, the mayor said, the debate would have become ‘about them’ — meaning the Syrians, their culture, and possible links to terrorism — instead of whether the city had the means to accommodate the refugees.” Yes, and we can’t possibly have a public discussion about whether the migrants have possible links to terrorism. That would be “Islamophobic.” “’The benefits, economically and culturally, that we will recognize is exactly what the community needs at this time,’ said Louras, the grandson of a Greek immigrant...

    Why are small towns in conservative states being specifically targeted for refugee resettlement? Of course the Obama administration will never publicly admit that this is happening, but it doesn’t take a genius to figure out what is going on. Just look at the uproar that refugee resettlement is now causing in small communities in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and Kansas. The Obama administration has deemed large cities such as Washington D.C. to be “too expensive” for the refugees, and so large numbers of them are being dispersed throughout smaller communities all over the nation.

Republicans had hoped to impose new security checks on the program by requiring Mr. Obama’s FBI, Homeland Security and intelligence chiefs to certify every refugee, saying those security officials needed to be on record if the country was going to expand its program. But Democrats filibustered the plan, leaving Republicans five votes shy of the 60 needed...

    The seizure of Infidel girls and their use as sex slaves is sanctioned in the Qur’an. According to Islamic law, Muslim men can take “captives of the right hand” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war” (33:50). 4:3 and 4:24 extend this privilege to Muslim men in general. The Qur’an says that a man may have sex with his wives and with these slave...

    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz appears to be trying to beat Donald Trump at his own game. Amid growing anti-Muslim rhetoric from Trump and other Republican presidential candidates, Cruz introduced his new far-right position on Syrian refugees already in the U.S.: Send them home. After two terror suspects with links to the Islamic State group were arrested in California and Texas this week, Cruz said Thursday the Obama administration should suspend the resettlement of Syrian refugees and other terrorist-controlled territories and undertake a retroactive assessment of all refugees who have arrived from those "high-risk countries." He also blamed Democratic front-runner Hillary...

    Jerry Lewis criticized President Obama and praised Donald Trump in an interview on World Over with Raymond Arroyo; the iconic comedian also slammed the Syrian refugee program, telling Arroyo "refugees should stay where the hell they are."

    Iconic American comedian Jerry Lewis slammed Barack Obama and praised Donald Trump in an interview on World Over with Raymond Arroyo. Lewis blasted Obama for his failed non-existent leadership. “Refugees should stay where the hell they are,” said Lewis bluntly. “Hey, no one has worked harder for the human condition than I have, but they’re not part of the human condition. If 11 guys in the group of 10,000 are ISIS—how can I take that chance?” Lewis is not alone in this feeling; as of last month at least 31 governors rejected President Obama’s push to accept Syrian refugees into...

    Despite the fact that the FBI had admitted that they don't have the database to vet Syrian "refugees" being brought to the U.S., on December 18, 2015, the traitorous Republican-majority Congress approved of the omnibus spending bill H.R. 2029 that fully funds the "refugee" program, as well as Planned Parenthood, climate change, and amnesty for illegals. (See "Betrayal: GOP funds Planned Parenthood, Syrian 'refugees' and amnesty for illegals") But the problem isn't just that Muslim jihadists are among those "refugees". It turns out that Syrian "refugees" are also bringing into this country a terrible flesh-eating disease called cutaneous leishmaniasis. In...
