What a surprise…citizens worldwide want to maintain their security, national identity
Reaction to Barack Obama announced intention to increase the number of Syrian refugees admitted into the United States to at least 10,000 in the fiscal year beginning in October was far less than mixed. Disapproval of the scheme that includes scant vetting was swift.
Rep. Peter T. King (R-NY) responded by stating the obvious, “Our enemy now is Islamic terrorism, and these people are coming from a country filled with Islamic terrorists. We don’t want another Boston Marathon bombing situation.”
In her weekend column, “America’s Reckless Refuge for Jihad“ syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin addresses the same concerns with a fact-filled commentary. She writes,
“Our asylum and refugee programs are routinely abused by ordinary fraudsters and Islamic terror plotters alike. Our immigration enforcement failures are compounded by deadly illegal alien sanctuary policies, a deportation abyss that allows hundreds of thousands of deportation fugitives to run loose, and the persistent lack of a tracking system to identity and kick out millions of foreign visa overstayers.”
Thousands of anti-asylum demonstrators are flooding the streets of European nations demanding an end to rampant refugee resettlement from Muslim countries. Participants held flags and banners proclaiming, “Stop the Islamisation of Europe.”
“We’re here so the government hears our voice and abandons any plans to welcome Muslims,” stated one of the organizers.
In this ABC News report, a senior FBI official has admitted the U.S. is finding it virtually impossible to screen out terrorists that could be hiding among the thousands of Syrian “refugees” heading to American cities.
“The U.S. simply does not have the resources to stop Islamic radicals in Syria from slipping into the country through the State Department’s refugee-resettlement program,” said Michael Steinbach, deputy assistant director of the FBI’s counter terrorism unit.
Yet Barack Obama remains steadfastly committed to his stated mission to “fundamentally transform the United States of America,” while imperiling the security of our nation. The safety and security of Americans should not be a partisan issue, but not a Democrat voice is raised in opposition.
