    ABOUT 50 refugees in Australia’s offshore detention centres have passed the United States’ “extreme vetting” and will be resettled in America in coming weeks. It comes just six weeks before the Manus Island detention centre in Papua New Guinea is due to close. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull this morning said it was “good news” that about 25 refugees from both Manus Island and Nauru would be resettled. Mr Turnbull thanked US President Donald Trump for honouring his deal with the Obama Administration despite his obvious reservations. The deal had been the subject of their testy phone call in January, just...

    Yes, it’s extreme vetting season. It was promised to us during the campaign and ties heavily into the President’s travel ban (which is still locked up in court). Only the vetting isn’t taking place here. You probably recall that little dust-up between Donald Trump and Australia’s Malcolm Turnbull shortly after Trump was sworn into office. They had a few differences of opinion which have supposedly since been resolved, but one serious bone of contention was the roughly 1,200 refugees who are being held on two islands off the Australian coast. Barack Obama had made a deal to take them...

    Be aware, that I am posting this with authors named Prissy, and coming from Mayhem News, but the video is illuminating, and we need to know this is going on. More importantly it helps to clarify the need to vet incoming refugees, and the danger of not having travel limitations. Read and comment. It IS worth the read and please view the video.

    According to an affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, Majid Al Mashhadani, brother of Yousif Al Mashhandani and Hasan, admitted in 2005 to kidnapping and holding a U.S. citizen and others hostage for months. The three defendants are permanent residents living in the U.S. since 2008. When they applied to become naturalized citizens, none disclosed their relationship with Majid Al Mashhadani. They eventually told the FBI that they left out that relationship in the application to not jeopardize their admittance as refugees.

    Lost in the shuffle of another exhausting news cycle this week has been a rather interesting headline from our cousins to the north: A vast majority actually want their own form of extreme vetting for immigrants. According to a recent survey conducted by Radio-Canada, per the Montreal Gazette: The findings of the survey, carried by the CROP polling for the French-language service of the CBC, indicate that despite criticism from the media and within political circles, the controversial position taken by Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch that immigrants be tested for an appreciation of “Canadian” values has traction with 74...

    “It is not compassionate, but reckless, to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur. Those given the high honor of admission to the United States should support this country and love its people and its values,” President Trump said in his speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday. “That is why my administration has been working on improved vetting procedures, and we will shortly take new steps to keep our nation safe — and to keep out those who would do us harm,” the president promised. President Trump is expected to reveal those new steps...
  • 9th Circuit Court Caught Covering Up Acts Of Terrorism

    The court's ruling “There is no evidence showing a risk to the United States in allowing aliens from these seven terror-associated countries to come in.” is a lie. Evidence now shows that acts of terrorism have been perpetrated by 72 individuals from the seven countries listed in Trump's Executive Order.

    At least 72 convicted terrorists came from the seven countries President Trump targeted in his extreme vetting executive order, according to a new report this weekend that directly undercut part of the courts’ rulings halting the program. Seventeen of those entered the U.S. under the refugee program that Mr. Trump has said is of special concern to him, according to the data compiled by the Senate Judiciary Committee and analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies.

    Opening Statement On Friday, a Boston federal judge issued a 21 page decision debunking the arguments against Trump’s Executive Order suspending migration from certain countries pending further review. Later that same day, a Seattle federal judge who has been making the news lately (and not usually for the most flattering of reasons), declared his oral intention to sign an order limiting some aspects of the executive order. In the courtroom, whose position is likely to ultimately win?

    Statement by the Press Secretary: At the earliest possible time, the Department of Justice intends to file an emergency stay of this order and defend the executive order of the President, which we believe is lawful and appropriate. The president’s order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people. As the law states, "Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for...

    Hear for yourself why President Donald Trump is correct in issuing a temporary travel ban from countries known to be hotbeds for harboring terrorists and/or are hostile nations towards the United States. Many will disagree however, Congress has spent the better part of two years deposing the FBI, DHS, CIA and others in the intelligence community, all of which have proven that refugees and immigrants from various regions can not be vetted properly.

    Remember all the promises Obama made but never executed? We have a new President now, and he is ready to put his pen where his mouth is. Remember what President Trump ran on? Didn’t he say, “I will put AMERICA FIRST.” And that is exactly what he is doing. You can count on Trump to do what he says, even if it is unpopular with the citizens, he knows why his voters chose him. Obama spent 8 years commending terrorists by not acknowledging their works. He opened the United States up to those who wanted to destroy it, by not...

    House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Tuesday that the rollout of President Trump’s extreme vetting executive order was “regrettable,” but said the new policy is not only legal, but the right thing to do to try to head off a future terrorist attack. He said he’s talked with new Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly to make sure the policy is carried out better, particularly when it comes to green card holders who were getting snared in the early going. But he said the House, in a bipartisan fashion, voted to back a pause in the refugee program in the...

    Republicans managed to turn back a quick-strike effort by Senate Democrats to revoke President Trump’s new extreme vetting executive order Monday night. Sen. Dianne Feinstein tried to force an immediate vote on her bill but was stymied by GOP objections, leaving Mr. Trump free to continue to deny admissions from seven majority-Muslim countries with histories of terrorism. But Democrats said the fight is just beginning. “President Trump’s muslim ban is unnecessary, it’s unconstitutional and it’s un-American,” Mrs. Feinstein said. “We won’t stand for these types of actions.”

    Dozens of Syrian refugees already living in the Unites States may have ties to terrorism and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is downplaying it, claiming federal agents missed “possible derogatory information” about the immigrants due to “a lapse in vetting.” Among those who slipped through the cracks is a man who failed a polygraph test after applying to work at a U.S. military installation and another who communicated with an Islamic State leader. Information about this scandalous security lapse comes from federal agents with firsthand knowledge of the situation. They spoke to a mainstream newspaper on condition of anonymity,...

I haven't heard of this Senator before, but I thought I would post what he said. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3518993/posts He said this in a series of 4 Tweets which I'm just going to put together as one statement: "I share the President's desire to protect our nation from harm.

Only 7 of them have a temporary hold on travel to the USA. Here are the nations limited by the Trump hold on people from Terrorist nations: Iraq Syria Iran Libya Somalia Sudan Yemen Here are all the Muslim Nations where all Muslims are free to enter the USA with appropriate customs. Any and ALL Muslims who want to apply to visit the USA from the following nations are still welcome to...

America has always been the land of the free and home of the brave. We will keep it free and keep it safe, as the media knows, but refuses to say. My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months. The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama...
