What did we just get with our 120K Afghans? Let’s look back at our Syrian refugees

Flashback: We have done this drill once before. Circa Obama administration. Obama’s mission to haul in all the Syrian refugees he could get his hands on as well as those from other terror ridden locations. Let’s look back at our earlier posts to give us an idea of what we have to look forward to as Biden picks up refugees 2.0

Let’s start here : Many of our newly minted Syrian Refugees are questionable at best.

The Breibart post has the following headline Unholy Alliance: Christian Charities Profit from $1 Billion Fed Program to Resettle Refugees, 40 Percent Muslim. The focus was on the big bucks various agencies were making off the import of all these refugees that Ryan, Clinton and Obama are determined to thrust upon us. Obama is proud he is on track to reach his 10,000 Syrians by September. Buried in the post were chilling details of just how many of these refugees have no interest in American values. This is what will get us and our neighbors killed. Here tis:

Of the 100,000 refugees resettled in the United States in 2014 under the Refugee Resettlement program, an estimated 40 percent were Muslims.

Despite claims that these Muslim refugees have been “vetted” to keep out terrorists, numerous reports, including those by the Department of Homeland Security and FBI, indicate that this process is flawed, especially for refugees from countries like Syria, where virtually no data bases to perform background checks exist.The likelihood that some number of these Muslim refugees—whether from Syria, Iraq, Somalia, or any of the other predominantly Muslim countries that send refugees to the United States—are Islamist terrorists is very high.

For instance, a recent Pew Research Poll indicated that approximately 14 percent of Muslims in 11 major Muslim majority countries sympathize with ISIS.

Another recent poll indicated that 13 percent of Syrian refugees coming to the United States “have a positive” or “positive to some extent” view of ISIS.

Since 1980, an estimated three million international refugees have entered the United States through this program, or approximately 100,000 per year for 35 years. Until 1990, very few Muslims were brought in. Since then, about 40 percent of refugees have been Muslim. In those 25 years, more than one million Muslims have been brought to the United States through this program.

Over the past five years, 680,000 green cards have been issued to Muslim immigrants (not all of whom came to the U.S. under the Refugee Resettlement program).

The national security concerns surrounding the Syrian refugees has not prompted these Christian non-profit VOLAGs to reconsider their refugee resettlement programs. Instead, as Refugee Resettlement Watch reported on Friday, they have just launched a massive public relations campaign to change the minds of the majority of Americans, whom three major polls show oppose letting any more Syrian refugees in the country.

Syrian Refugees

“Syrian Refugees” by FreedomHouse is marked with CC PDM 1.

The government has admitted 605 Syrian refugees for resettlement in the United States since last November’s Paris terrorist attack, two of whom are Christians.

“Isn’t it already proven that Mr. Baghdadi is sending people with this flow of refugees that are terrorists that – in order to inflict further attacks on Europe and the United States?” Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) asked him, referring to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

“That’s correct,” Clapper replied. “That’s one technique they’ve used is taking advantage of the torrent of migrants to insert operatives into that flow.”

In addition, he continued, ISIS has become “pretty skilled at [producing] phony passports, so they can travel ostensibly as legitimate travelers as well.”

The rest who have been admitted are 589 Sunni Muslims, 10 Shia Muslims, three other Muslims, and one refugee identified in State Department Refugee Processing Center data as “other religion.”

Just 55 Christians (1.9 percent) are among the 2,769 Syrian refugees admitted since March 2011, while a large majority – 2,594 (93.6 percent) – has been Sunni Muslims.

Other non-Muslims among the Syrian refugees admitted to the U.S. since the war began include small numbers of Baha’i (2), Yazidis (1), Jehovah’s Witnesses (8), Zoroastrians (6), atheists (3) and Syrians who have self-identified as having no religion (7). More at CNS News

Obama plans on bringing in even more third world ‘immigrants’

DHS OPENS DOOR TO NEW IMMIGRANTS FROM HAITI, EXTENDS SPECIAL PROTECTIONS FOR HONDURAN, NICARAGUAN IMMIGRANTS

DHS announced a new program to allow thousands, the Miami Herald reported, of Haitians to legally come to the United States.

“As numerical context for these executive actions, keep in mind that the Census Bureau reports that total immigration levels have reached a record 41.3 million,” the aide emailed. “Each year, the US issues 1 million green cards to permanent immigrants (largely lesser-skilled), 700,000 guest worker permits, 500,000 foreign students, and 70,000 refugees and asylees.

State Department Using ‘Diversity Visas’ to Encourage Immigration to U.S. from Terror-Ridden Yemen

The State Department has awarded 1,011 special “diversity visas” allowing Yemeni nationals to immigrate to the United States since 2000, the year 17 U.S. sailors were killed when the USS Cole was attacked by terrorists in the Yemeni port of Aden.

The “diversity visas” are designed to encourage immigration from countries that do not otherwise send significant numbers of immigrants to the United States.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres has as many as 11,000 Syrians in a pipeline waiting for admission into the U.S., which is responsible for screening them for criminal and terrorist activity.

McCaul has tried to block the arrival of the Syrians based on testimony from FBI counter-terrorism experts. As chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, he held a hearing on the national security risks of the Syrian refugee program in February and has scheduled a second hearing for June 24. He’s also sent two letters to Obama, urging him not to let the U.N. refugee program become a “jihadist pipeline” into the United States. (First arrivals since January, 2015)

Some of the questions Gowdy has pressed the State Department to answer are:

  • Who makes the ultimate decision as to which cities get refugees from what countries?
  • What variables are taken into consideration when distributing these refugees? Is it done, for instance, according to population density, geography, job and housing availability or availability of welfare benefits?
  • What local officials are brought into the decision-making process and at what point?
  • How are the other “stakeholders” chosen in the receiving communities?
  • How are the financial and economic impacts of the refugees to taxpayer-funded budgets being measured in the various cities where they are sent?

UN claims Children of ISIS fighters must be repatriated

 

What to do with 68,000 people in Syrian camps including their children? Many of them families of ISIS fighters. Trump had raised the issue some time ago, with no answer, asking countries to take their prisoners who are being held in Syria. It came to a head when the skirmish with Turkey left some camps under questionable control by the Kurds. One can only imagine the state of mind of children held in these conditions with parents who were/are ISIS fighters.

 

Al-Hol camp in northeastern Syria

Note from picture: We are the first reporters inside the al-Hol Camp since Turkish military operations began in northeastern Syria last week. Officials say since the conflict began, the camp, which houses 71,000 people, has become “out of control.” Camp officials say in the past week there have been attacks, escape attempts and open calls for a violent uprising in al-Hol Camp in Syria, Oct. 16, 2019.

GENEVA, Switzerland (AFP) — United Nations investigators on Thursday called for thousands of children of jihadists who fought for the Islamic State group to be repatriated from Syria.

The UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria said in a report that the children were in a “particularly precarious” situation since they often lacked official papers.

“This, in turn, jeopardizes their rights to a nationality, hinders family reunification processes and puts them at a higher risk of exploitation and abuse,” the report said.

The UN says around 28,000 children of foreign fighters are living in Syrian camps — 20,000 of them from Iraq.

After the collapse of the self-proclaimed caliphate of ISIS last year, foreign fighters from nearly 50 countries were detained in Syria and Iraq.

Many of their relatives are held in the overcrowded Al-Hol camp in northeastern Syria, home to around 68,000 and where more than 500 people — mostly children — died in 2019.

The Venezuela Crisis – Where the refugees are headed, why we should care

 

The biggest migration in South American history is taking place and here is why it should matter to us. They are not just coming our way, but are putting enormous strain on their South American neighbors.

Looks like for now 290k for us. For now. Considering the number we have pounding on the door, it’s probably small change. Better yet, I bet they don’t have the Marxist fever that at present is sweeping our land. Maybe a couple of these folks could chat with Bernie, Cortez and friends about how this Communism thing worked out for them.

Some four hundred thousand have claimed asylum from political persecution and violence, and another million have gained other forms of residency. Hundreds of thousands of others, however, lack legal residency, and with it, access to employment, education, and social services. It is one of the largest and swiftest mass migrations in Latin America’s history, and the United Nations has characterized the situation as a humanitarian crisis [PDF].

 

The chart shows 3.4 million refugees from Venezuela since 2015. That’s 10 percent of the population. 10 percent of the US population would be 33 million. The UN, the European Union and the US with allies should see this as a disaster and demand change.

 

Venezuela is in the midst of an unprecedented political and economic crisis, the effects of which are rippling across the hemisphere and beyond. Wracked by hyperinflation, severe food and medicine shortages, soaring crime rates, and an increasingly authoritarian executive, more than 2.7 million Venezuelans—approximately 9 percent of the population—have fled the country in the past four years.

Obama separated 72,410 children from their illegal immigrant parents

 

Of course you will never see this in the MSM. Of course not. One can only wonder after this kerfuffle dies down, what more does the Left have at the ready to energize their base? It’s amazing isn’t it. Just as the IG report and hearings were happening, this just rose to the top of the food chain news by the media. In perfect lock step. I will add the legal justification, or lack thereof of AG Eric Holder on the taking of the Gonzalez child at gunpoint to return him to Cuba.

 

AG Holder doing a little deporting of a child

 

In 2013 Barack Obama separated 72,410 children from their illegal immigrant parents who were deported.

The Huffington Post reported:

Immigration and Customs Enforcement last year carried out more than 72,000 deportations of parents who said they had U.S.-born children, according to reports to Congress obtained Wednesday by The Huffington Post.

The reports were sent by ICE in April to the Senate Appropriations Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee, as required by law. ICE confirmed the authenticity of the two reports, which lay out 72,410 removals of immigrants who said they had one or more U.S.-born children in 2013.

The reports show that even parents of U.S. citizens are among the hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants being expelled from the United States each year…

… When a parent is deported, their U.S.-born children sometimes leave with them. But some stay in the U.S. with another parent or family member. Some children end up in U.S. foster care. H/T: Gateway Pundit

I give you this flash back:

Eric Holder dispensed with Elian Gonzalez, not so much our new ‘refugees’

 

……Even as the mace dispersed and Elian’s legal custodians sought medical help for their injuries, Fox News’ Andrew Napolitano already had Eric Holder’s number:

“Tell me, Mr. Holder,” Napolitano asked on April 23, 2000, “why did you not get a court order authorizing you to go in and get the boy (Elian Gonzalez)?”

Holder: Because we didn’t need a court order. INS can do this on its own.

Napolitano: You know that a court order would have given you the cloak of respectability to seize the boy?

Holder: We didn’t need an order.

Napolitano: Then why did you ask the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals for such an order if you didn’t need one?

Holder: [Silence]

Napolitano: The fact is, for the first time in history you have taken a child from his residence at gunpoint to enforce your custody position, even though you did not have an order authorizing it. When is the last time a boy, a child, was taken at the point of a gun without an order of a judge? Unprecedented in American history.

Holder: He was not taken at the point of a gun.

Napolitano: We have a photograph showing he was taken at the point of a gun.

Holder: They were armed agents who went in there who acted very sensitively…

The nature of this “sensitivity” I’ve already mentioned, including the number injured by the mace, gun-butts, and jackboots. Thanks to the ritual MSM-Castroite collusion, most people forget (or missed) the crucial legal and ethical details of the Elian circus/tragedy — which were mostly established during the first week after the boy’s rescue at sea, after his mother’s drowning.

 

Italy thinking about ‘Nuclear Option’ in moving on migrants to Northern Europe

Things are coming to a head in Italy with the influx of refugees and no one is talking about it. Less than 7,000 have been moved on out of Italy and still they pour in. It is reported they are at the breaking point. 13,500 in a 48 hour period arrived just at the end of June. A number of countries are now refusing to accept any,with the EU issuing threats against those countries. Where are the women and children? Just asking:

Senior Italian government figures are threatening to issue European Union visas to 200,000 migrants, granting them unrestricted access to the bloc’s borderless Schengen Zone.

In response to Italy’s mounting crisis, the EU is planning to transport migrants to Europe directly from North Africa and for EU members to resettle them. Brussels expects the United Kingdom to engage in the programme and “volunteer” to accept a quota migrants, despite its vote to leave the bloc in June 2016.

Deputy Foreign Minister Mario Giro and Senator Luigi Manconi told The Times that the government was discussing issuing migrants with temporary visas which would allow them to leave Italy and move freely through the bloc’s 26 Schengen countries.

Mr. Giro and others from the ruling Democratic Party believe Italy can exploit the little-known European Council Directive 2001/55, drafted after the Balkans conflict, to give temporary EU entry permits to ‘displaced people’ – triggering another wave of mass migration into Northern Europe.

In 2015, at the height of the migrant crisis, the EU pledged to redistribute 160,000 African and Middle Eastern migrants based in Italy and Greece to other EU member-states signed up to the bloc’s common asylum policy – but as of June 9th, 2017, only 6,896 migrants have been relocated from Italy.

Countries such a Viségrad nations PolandHungary, and Slovakia are defying the supranational bloc and refusing the forced migrant distribution on grounds of culture and national security.

Mattia Toaldo, a senior analyst at the European Council on Foreign Relations, said: “If migrants continue to arrive and Italy decides to give them papers to cross borders and leave Italy it would be a nuclear option. Italians have lost any hope of getting help from the EU and may say, ‘If you won’t make it a common challenge, we will’.”…….

More than 100,000 migrants crossed the Mediterranean Sea in the first six months of 2017.  Italy has overtaken Greece to become the main point of entry to Europe in the ongoing migrant crisis, with welcome centres in a state of near-collapse after 13,500 arrived in a 48-hour period at the end of June.

Free rides for refugees – Displacing Europe’s Population

I am not a fan of Info Wars in particular, but they often provide leads to information one would not find otherwise. Either way, one has to wonder why Europe is so worried about Russia when they are no less allowing the Trojan horse of millions of refugees into their midst which will ultimately doom themselves. There are Millions of Dollars in the business of taking care of refugees, so this is not so far fetched. Check out

   There’s money to made on these Syrian Refugees‏ 

Here we go with the latest from Moon Battery:

Combine the mass importation of “refugees” with Africa’s exploding population rate and you have effective genocide. If this continues, within a century Europeans will face a situation as grim as whites do now in South Africa. Another century after that and no one will even remember Europeans; the continent will be populated by savages squatting in dung huts.

If Russia invaded, Europe would fight back. But to be conquered by Russians would be infinitely better than to be displaced out of existence by uncountable hordes of Africans, because there would still be such a thing as the future.

Will a Judge order Trump to double 50,000 refugees into the U.S?

What the environmentalists did in the courts to win so-called “settlements” with the EPA, the Soros sponsored groups will move on to attack Trump. I suggest that March 28, 2017 will become D-Day for whether anarchy will prevail. Will a Judge attempt to usurp the power of the President and “order” more imports of terrorists? In the case of the “greenies” a simple suit against the government would bring a wink and a nod in court and an out of court settlement would occur. So consider the ramifications of this:

A federal District Court judge in Maryland is considering whether he should order President Donald Trump to double the annual inflow of refugees up to 100,000 per year.

Any demand by the judge that the federal government airbus an extra 50,000 migrants — including many adherents of Islam’s sharia legal system — into American neighborhoods would be an unusual intervention into government roles normally left to the elected President and Congress.

The judge revealed his proposal in a footnote in his March 15 decision where he denounced Trump’s reformist Executive Orders, which sharply curbs the inflow of refugees from war-torn Islamic countries.

The judge’s footnote declared:

On February 22, 2017, Plaintiffs filed a Motion for a Preliminary Injunction of S 5(d) of the Executive Order, ECF No. 64, requesting that the Court enjoin a specific provision of the First Executive Order. With the agreement of the parties, the Court set a briefing and hearing schedule extending to March 28, 2017. The Court will resolve that Motion, which the parties have agreed should be construed to apply to the successor provision of the Second Executive Order, in accordance with the previously established schedule.

The plaintiffs’ request for 100,000 refugees each year was made by lawyers for the International Refugee Assistance Protect, HIAS Inc., a so-called “VOLAG” which is paid by federal agencies to import refugees, and by members of the Middle East Studies Association.

“Judge Chuang’s ruling … leaves the door open for further discussion of our challenges to the refugee ban, an opening we intend to pursue,” said a March 15 statement from HIAS. “So stay tuned for more news as our lawsuit continues.”  HIAS received at least $19.5 million in government grants in 2014, according to its federal 990 form.

Bill Kristol: “Lazy” White Working Class Should be replaced by “New Americans”

This is why the old guard of the GOP almost took the GOP over the cliff. A link to the hour long interview can be found over at the Daily Caller. The interview didn’t get much better than this clip. Contempt of us worker bees, and a callous disregard was the order of the day. Here tis:

Weekly Standard editor-at-large Bill Kristol said Tuesday afternoon that the white working class should be replaced by immigrants as they have become “decadent, lazy” and “spoiled.”

“Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in?” Kristol told author Charles Murray during an event hosted by the American Enterprise Institute titled “It Came Apart: What’s Next for a Fractured Culture.” Murray recently wrote a book, entitled “Coming Apart,” which focuses on the cultural separation between the wealthiest and most educated white Americans and the poorest and least educated white Americans.

Not his first brush with this idea. Earlier post: 

Jordan on Refugees: ‘We can’t vet these people’

H/T:Weasel Zippers

Prince Faisal bin Hussein is the younger brother of Jordanian King Abdullah II and serves as Regent when the King is out of the country. One of his areas of interest is information technology. When he says the Syrian refugees can’t be vetted, he knows what he’s talking about, particularly since he has 655,000 of them camped out in his back yard. Further, it has come to light that a “glitch” prevented U.S. vetting personnel from searching CIA databases which would have revealed pertinent information regarding Syrian refugees. The Obama regime knew about this “glitch” yet continued to tell us that the Syrians already allowed into the U.S. had been “rigorously” vetted.

Via Daily Caller:

Prince Faisal bin Hussein told GOP North Carolina Congressman Mark Walker the Jordanian government could not vet Syrian refugees, The Washington Examiner reports.

Walker, the chairman of the Republican Study Committee, was in Jordan at the time of the comment for a fact finding mission. The U.S. Department of State reportedly tried to tell Walker that the vetting process was thorough, just hours before Hussein told him, “we can’t vet these people.”

The United Nations High Committee on Refugees believes 655,000 Syrian refugees currently reside in Jordan, dispersed across multiple camps.

Hussein’s comments echo the security concerns expressed in the executive order by President Donald Trump Friday that indefinitely suspended the Syrian refugee program. The suspension came just days after news broke that the FBI is revetting Syrian refugees allowed into the U.S. that must be revetted.

The lapse in vetting reportedly stems from a 2015 glitch that prevented U.S. authorities from gleaning possible “derogatory” information about the refugees at the time. The glitch prevented relevant personnel from searching CIA databases, which included potentially compromising information on refugees. New investigations include several dozen Syrian refugees, and began before President Donald Trump took office.

Federal agents speaking to The Los Angeles Times elaborated that one of the admitted refugees may have been in contact with an Islamic State operative, and another failed a polygraph test.

Former President Barack Obama’s administration repeatedly emphasized the rigorous nature of the refugee vetting process. Former White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said in August that the administration was able to increase Syrian refugees in 2015 “without cutting any corners when it comes to security.” Earnest continued, claiming that “significant screening was put in place to ensure that these individuals don’t pose an undue threat to our national security.”

San Francisco suspends ties to FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force

The San Francisco police department is suspending ties with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.

The announcement comes amid growing concerns of spying on Muslim Americans by the new Trump Administration.

San Francisco may become a model as other cities more closely examine relationships with the feds. The concern is that local police departments could be used for surveillance that is broad and possibly unconstitutional.

“Donald Trump made very clear that he was going to be targeting Muslims and he wants mass Muslim surveillance and part of the work done with the JTTF could feed into this horrible Muslim registry, they’re talking about,” said retired attorney John Crew, who fights for civil liberty issues.
