State Department Wants to Bring in 1,500 Refugees Per Month

State Department Wants to Bring in 1,500 Refugees Per Month

Even though they don’t have enough people to interview them.

President Obama is still pushing for the U.S. to accept more refugees from Syria, and his agenda is now being supported by the U.S. State Department.

The Hill reports:

State seeks to pick up pace on bringing Syrian refugees to US

The State Department is hoping to bring an average of nearly 1,500 Syrian refugees to the United States per month in order to meet President Obama’s target of settling 10,000 refugees in the country by September.

About 1,300 refugees have already been placed in the United States since Obama first made the commitment in September.

That’s far fewer than those taken in by European countries such as Germany, who has dealt with an unprecedented wave of migrants fleeing Syria’s civil war, as well as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

Yet the settlement has provoked a significant backlash, mostly from Republicans, who argue it puts the U.S. at risk from terrorism.

“It’s clear that ISIS wants to, has planned on attempting to infiltrate refugee populations. This is a problem. If one person gets through who is planning a terrorist attack in our country, that’s a problem,” House Speaker Paul Ryan, who recently returned from a trip to the region, said Thursday.

“The administration — whether it’s Homeland Security or the FBI, cannot tell us that they can adequately screen people. There isn’t really a Syrian to talk to on that end of the equation to vet people, so it is a problem,” Ryan told reporters.

The State Department says it has fallen behind schedule in meting Obama’s goal partly due to a lack of personnel available to interview refugees.

The ongoing concern of most Americans is security. ISIS has gone on record, saying they would infiltrate the refugee population and no one has forgotten that. Well, no one except Obama.

Obama Misses Muslim Immigrant Threat

As Obama rolls out the red carpet for Middle Eastern refugees, he totally ignores the fact that militant-Islamic killers lurk among this bedraggled population.

Obama replied to ISIS’ March 22 mayhem in Brussels, Belgium, by reasserting “our openness to refugees fleeing ISIL’s violence.”

How excruciatingly ironic that one of those who brutalized Brussels, killed 32 innocent people (including four Americans), and wounded 300 more, was one of the same “refugees” to whom Obama promises “openness.”

  • Osama Krayem was arrested on April 8. Belgian police believe he was the second terrorist “present at the time of the attack at the Maelbeek subway station” in Brussels, according to CNN. The news channel further reported that this ISIS member “is thought to have come to Europe, along with hundreds of refugees from war-torn nations, via the Greek island of Leros.” He evidently traveled on a bogus Syrian passport under the pseudonym Naim al Hamed.
  • Ahmad al Mohammad, perhaps a nom de guerre, blew himself up outside a soccer match at Paris’ Stade de France as ISIS massacred 130 and injured 368 others on November 13. Mohammad apparently carried a fake Syrian passport, entered Leros last October 3, and registered with Serbian police on October 7. “Leros authorities say they simply do not have the resources to screen all the migrants effectively,” the BBC reports, “or even check whether passports are genuine.”
  • Canadian authorities in 2011 arrested Faruq ‘Isa. According to the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), he is a former Iraqi refugee “who is accused of vetting individuals on the Internet for suicide operations in Iraq.”

The American people have legitimate concerns on this issue.

While we are a generous nation, we have to be wary of the potential Trojan Horse at the gates.

No under the current regime, for sure. Not even later until most of them are Christians, and the non-Christians are fully vetted.

They have LOTS of other options, and State needs to lean on the Arab states for MORE options.

    Let’s cut through the nonsense here and say it like it is.

    The “state department” is fully corrupted by Obama/Jarrett, and their sole mission now is to destroy the U.S. as it has been, and replace it with a leftist nightmare. As such, importing thousands of Muslim fundamentalists (and anyone looking to crash the southern border) and the many terrorists among them is a key seed Obama/Jarrett is looking to plant as fast as possible.

    This is active treason. The GOP sitting idly by is passive treason.

…partly due to a lack of personnel available to interview refugees.

Really, why bother to ‘interview’ them?

Interviewer: Are you a terrorist?

Refugee: Trust me, I’m not a terrorist, you infidel.

Interviewer: Good. The bus is waiting to take you to your new home.

Forget ISIS & terrorism for the moment.

It makes NO SENSE at all to treat war refugees as immigrants. Traditionally, they are housed as close to their homes as safely possible, so as to return when the war ends. It’s sad that it is a long war, but that changes nothing.

If we are to adopt some new policy that all refugees from war zones now suddenly jump to the front of the long waiting list for legal immigration, that should be publicly debated upon and voted on by the Congress FIRST, not on the whim of a lame duck.

    The countries right next to Syria are Iraq, also a warzone, Turkey (partly responsible for the war), and Israel (which doesn’t take non Jewish immigrants in any meaningful numbers).

      Israel (which doesn’t take non Jewish immigrants in any meaningful numbers)

      That is not true. Israel has taken non-Jewish refugees in quite significant numbers in the past, but of course it’s not likely to take the risk in this case.

      Who says it has to be a border state? There are several wealthy and majority Muslim countries very close by. Why can’t they take their fellow Muslims in? Islam requires charity, so where is theirs? Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, UAE, etc., would all be more appropriate places to house these Muslim refugees than the U.S.

    IIRC, Ben Carson son visited with Syrian refugees, and they told him exactly this: they want temporary relief, and then to go back home.

If I consider the “bringing Syrian refugees to US” as an invasion, these actions make sense. The part I do not understand is why the Democrats want to destroy this country.

Ted had better stock up on soccer balls and teddy bears, that’s a lot of people for him to welcome here!

This strongly reminds me of something that happened when I was a kid, possibly in the Johnson administration. My dad, who was an Air Force recruiter at the time, came home with smoke pouring out of his ears. Similar to the position of the State Department at this time, the US Air Force had been given a goal to raise the number of black officers, now, without extra funds to do so.

This was during the Vietnam War, and the quick way to increase the number of black officers was by attrition (death of pilots), which was happening. The problem with increasing the intake of black pilots was not raw ability, but education. Most of these people came from schools that did not give them an adequate background (math). Without the funds for remedial training, the only way to get the recruits in as officers was to give them a pass, whether they passed, or not.

This meant put pilots in the air with inadequate training. This, of course, backfired in the expected manner, which goes far to explain why black preachers lobbied with their young men not to enter military service.

Rev. Wright had a US military background, and he was of an age to know about this sh!t. He was dead wrong about the US creating HIV for the purpose of killing people of color, but there was solid reason why he distrusted the American government.

There is a right way and a wrong way to get things done using the government, and politicians can do tremendous harm by failing to pay attention to the methods they use.

The State Department is hoping to bring an average of nearly 1,500 Syrian refugees to the United States per month in order to meet President Obama’s target of settling 10,000 refugees in the country by September.

In that case, I say let the Stae department pay for and house them!

Maybe it will soon be safer to emigrate to Western Europe than to stay here.

Here’s an easy filter: “Declare one of the following: (1) Mohammed was not a prophet; or (2) Mohammed was not the last or the greatest prophet.” This should be a fairly effective way of filtering out Moslems. Everyone but Moslems and Baha’i should have no problem making the first declaration; Baha’i can’t make the first one but they can make the second. No Moslem could in good conscience make either one merely for the chance to immigrate to a new country.

Nah. Muslims wouldn’t have a problem with this, particularly the terrorist types.

    By the way, I was responding to Milhouse’s entry at 0107.

    Why don’t you read your own link? Exactly as in any religion, mental reservation is permitted under duress, to protect oneself from persecution. There is no form of Islam that would allow it merely to gain the benefit of immigration to a new country.

      There are none so blind as those who will not see. Let me put it in simple language: A terrorist will swear that black is white, the sky is green, and George W Bush is a saint in order for them to blow up/kill/maim/murder as many innocent lives as possible in the Great Satan or the Little Satan.
