Well, shit. That thought of being by the campfire tonight with a nice brew or glass of wine has been overcome by the need to do some dry fire and possible review my ‘oh shit’ plan yet one more time…just sayin.’ Yeah, I know…they’re all good, God fearing, Born Again Evangelical Christians, and I’m being both racist and paranoid…..right.
The Obama administration has created a “resettlement surge center” which has produced a pouring of 100 Syrian refugees in the U.S. per day. The very real risk to Americans – the lack of proper vetting of these individuals by the quick processing that is being done, almost all of them reported to be Muslims.
Over 100 Syrian refugees have been admitted every day in June according to the federal government’s own database from the Refugee Processing Center. More than 1,000 were admitted in May. The rate of those admitted has sky-rocketed when compared to the 3,755 accepted in fiscal year 2016.
The Conservative Review reported these numbers, and that approximately 100-250 were admitted during the first six months of fiscal year 2016. It noted that the Associated Press reported in April that the federal government set up a “resettlement surge center” in Amman, Jordan in February. The center is now interviewing approximately 600 people a day.
The “vetting” process, already questioned by leaders in the country, has been fast-tracked from 18-24 months to just three months. The “refugee mill” can now go through thousands of applications every month.
The Center for Immigration Studies published concerns raised by the comments of Simon Henshaw, principal deputy assistant secretary of the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, when he certified that 12,000 applicants were interviewed in February, March, and April. He wrote:
So the fact that 225 Syrian refugees were admitted into the United States in a new single-day record for Syrian refugee approvals is beside the point. What is of importance here is that 12,000 were interviewed in such a short time driven by the urgency to meet the September deadline.
Obama promised and the U.S. Congress has acquiesced to 10,000 Syrians being admitted by September 30 when the fiscal year ends. In September 2015, President Obama directed the U.S. government to admit 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country. Now, according to the regional refugee coordinator at the U.S. Embassy in Anman in April, “The 10,000 [number] is a floor and not a ceiling, and it is possible to increase the number.”
A video excerpt from an October 2015 House Homeland Security Committee hearing reveals exactly why U.S. and state leaders have called for “a screeching halt” to Syrian resettlement in the country, as reported by Breitbart Texas.
Congressman Lamar Smith (R-TX) asked federal security and crime directors whether terrorists would use federal programs to gain access to this country in order to commit terrorist acts. The Director of the National Counterterrorism Center answered, “We have certainly seen terrorist groups talk about, think about, exactly what you are describing, Mr. Smith. Trying to use available programs to get people not only into the United States, but into western European countries as well. So we know that they aspire to do that.”
