Putting out the welcome mat for terrorists

Who do they think they are kidding?

Obama unilaterally ordered immigration to allow 10,000 Syrian refugees into this country this year.

Then White House spokesman Josh Earnest had the audcatity to claim:

“Refugees go through the most robust security process of anybody who’s contemplating travel to the United States. Refugees have to be screened by the National Counter Terrorism Center, by the F.B.I. Terrorist Screening Center. They go through databases that are maintained by D.H.S., the Department of Defense and the intelligence community. There is biographical and biometric information that is collected about these individuals.”

These are refugess. They are not carrying passports or visas or birth certificates or driver’s licenses.

They are from war-torn countries where records of criminal convictions or terrorist affiliations are nonexistent.

Federal agencies have admitted there is no way to vet such refugees.

“We don’t have it under control,” Michael Steinback, assistant director for the FBI told a congressional committee. “Absolutely, we’re doing the best we can. If I were to say that we had it under control, then I would say I know of every single individual traveling. I don’t. And I don’t know every person there and I don’t know everyone coming back. So it’s not even close to being under control.”

These are the same people who want to conduct background checks before any citizen may buy a gun for protection but will allow any mope who claims to be a refugee to come on over and start getting free stuff paid for by taxpayers, even if their intent is to kill those same taxpayers in repayment.

What a country! What a political party!

    Have they paid any attention whatsoever to what’s happening in Europe??!

    Here’s a sample:



    and a viewpoint on the problem:


    And the situation appears to be escalating rapidly.

    Americans have had two centuries of a nominal border with Canada to build our trust of whoever is on the other side. But not everyone in the world is our cultural brothers of Canada. If you haven’t lived in an area that’s been overrun by illegal immigrants from another culture (as I have) who refuse to assimilate, you have NO idea what you are inviting into our country…. which soon won’t be OUR country anymore.

    Of course, if you don’t want to live in America, as so many young liberals claim they don’t, this is one way to achieve that goal….

    Weren’t the Tsarnaevs refugees? The Boston Marathon bombers?

    1) There are an estimated 4 million refugees from Syria and we’re taking in 10,000 or 1 out of every 400. It is likely that screening is quite feasible with such a small percentage. The question is, did we screen them and what were the criteria. Without that information, it’s all conjecture (and a little knee jerk condemnation). 2) It could be worse. We have it much easier than Europe. They took in 43,000 in June and 26,000 the previous June. These suggest an influx of several hundred thousand per year. http://www.vox.com/2015/9/5/9265501/refugee-crisis-europe-syria 3) If any Arab country wants to send terrorists our way, all they have to do is learn to talk English with a Spanish accent and come over our border with Mexico. Why would they toss ’em into refugee camps hoping their agents will be among the one in 400? Your whole scenario is impractical. 4) We have an ongoing problem finding enough of our own people that speak Arabic. We will soon have 10,000 more, many filled with gratitude. They may prove useful. 5) Keeping an eye on 10,000 people is a big job, but I suspect it’s eminently feasible for our federal agencies. Much easier to do than it is for the “terrorists” who come through Mexico.

    Will it let me share this?

  6. nyp says:

    I look the photograph that accompanys your post, Mr. Mitchell, and all I can think is “Those sure look like terrorists!”

  7. Vernon Clayson says:

    It’s a little like Cuba when Castro emptied his prisons and asylums and sent them here,the difference is those Cubans were confined pending vetting, Obama welcomes these without vetting. His immigration policies were aimed at this, not the the Hispanic immigration. nyp, those children will grow into tomorrow’s terrorists,

  8. nyp says:

    yeah, just look at those kids saved from drowning — future terrorists, every one of them!

  9. Steve says:

    Syria, another US foreign policy success.

  10. Rincon says:

    This policy “failure” began at the end of World War I, when the victors carved up the Middle East without regard to the future consequences of the borders they drew. Add in the creation of Israel on top of Palestinian territory, then in came the oil companies and their deals with a swarm of dictators, most importantly the Shah of Iran. The flood of western sectarian culture then turned theirs upside down. And, of course, we’ve been feeding massive amounts of oil money to these miscreants and hoped they would behave. All of these things were accomplished primarily by the Conservatives of their time. Now, the Mideast has been a mess since at least 1979, but Obama, of course, is to blame.

  11. Steve says:

    Woodrow Wilson was a conservative?


  12. First) What we are witnessing is the continued melt down from the chaotic mess our Community Organizer in Chief orchestrated by not leaving a transition/residual force before exiting Iraq. This allowed ISIS to run amok in both Syria and Iraq (the root cause of this mass migration). Second) How many Syrian refugees are the Islamic nations in the region taking in…Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Lebanon and Jordan??? This is primarily THEIR problem…and unless and until they take a large share of these poor refugees…we should refuse to take any. There are other ways for us to assist these folks…food, medicines, logistics etc.

  13. Rincon says:

    Turkey hosts about 1.8 million, Lebanon 1.2 million, Jordan 630,000, Egypt and North Africa 156,000 and believe it or not, Iraq hosts about 250,000. http://www.vox.com/2015/9/5/9265501/refugee-crisis-europe-syria

    I believe it was mostly France and Britain’s call, but the attitude was the same as today’s Conservatives. They expected the savages to bend to their will and had faith that any problem could be eliminated by superior military forces.

  14. Again…the richest Islamic countries in the region are taking NO refugees…yet I fail to see a byline about their shameful reaction to this crisis.

  15. Nyp says:

    Yeah, if only we had broken Bush’s agreement to withdraw our forces and had kept a “transitional force” in Iraq Islamic militancy and Shia v. Sunni regional rivalry would never have happened.

  16. All roads lead back to Bush for folks like the little nyper. (Never mind Leon Panetta & the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s pleadings)

  17. Nyp says:

    No, I tell ‘ya – American troops in the Middle East are just what is needed to keep the region from destabilizing.

  18. nyp says:

    Hey, Mr. Mitchell — why is it that when you are called out for making an egregious factual error you (on occasion) correct the error while refusing to acknowledge that you ever made such an error?

  19. Steve says:

    Unlike you libs, conservatives correct errors.

    You guys just deny making any.
