(Via CNN) No person accepted to the United States as a refugee, Syrian or otherwise, has been implicated in a major fatal terrorist attack since the Refugee Act of 1980 set up systematic procedures for accepting refugees into the United States, according to an analysis of terrorism immigration risks by the Cato Institute.
Oh Really? No Refugees implicated in terrorism? Read on

President Obama puts six month ban on Iraqi refugees in 2011 and media . crickets.
President Trump puts 120 day suspension on Syrian refugees 2017 media explodes.
Obama selects 7 countries for enhanced visa security policy and media crickets.
Trump uses Obama law, same Obama DHS policy, and same 7 countries; for a 90-day visa suspension and media explodes.
All that is necessary to identify a country for visa screening is to act on intelligence that their governments actively host groups who want to kill us, or that their governments are too weak or corrupt to stop such groups from sending killers to the US
Trump ordered a 90 day ban to fix the system for screening people from these countries- the 7 of which were identified by Obama presumably based on such intelligence
and the GOP can’t or won’t support this?
A couple more I can think of, not in list
March 3, 2006...Taheri-Azar is a naturalized citizen from Iran drives his SUV into a crowd on U.North Carolina campus, injuring 6.
Nov.28, 2016...Abdul Razak Ali Artan, a Somali refugee who was a legal permanent resident and student at the university. Drives car into students on OSU campus, jumps from car and attacks w/ knife.
IMO Pakistan and Afghanistan should be added to the list.
Why isn’t Saudi Arabia on the list?
I am hearing reports S.A. is now willing to set up refugee camps in their country. If true that may be a reason, negotiation. I would sure rather have the refugees in S.A. than here.
Since 9/11 we have not held S.A. accountable no matter who is in charge here. I hope there are good reasons we the people are not aware of. I have not always trusted our Presidents from both parties. Trump has been President for such a short time I am willing to trust him on this at least for now.
Hopefully this is true.
because Saudi Arabia wasn’t included in the EO written by Obama in 2015-2016 which Trump is now enforcing
Trump’s EO does not name any countries
Trump’s EO refers to an earlier EO written by obama listing nations of security concern
Trumps EO is an enforcement order of obamas EO
I confused two articles...one was about S.A. already taking refugees contrary to reports they don’t, can’t find that article but one I posted above looks like Trump and S.A. are in serious discussion about refugees having a place to go in their own countries, that sounds good to me if it happens. I can’t find the other article now.
Bump - article is outstanding!
Repost: US Cases of refugees arrested or convicted on terror charges, and other heinous crimes
I had to go back through my over 2,000 posts on refugee crimes, here, and pull out Islamic terror cases involving refugees. I chose ten, not for any other reason than these ten below are at the top of my mind. And, I think ten is enough to counter the disinformation campaign going on.
For good measure, I have also added (below) a few spectacular crimes involving Muslim refugees.
