In the wake of the human tsunami of Latin Americans who poured over the nation’s intentionally porous U.S.-Mexico border, the Obama administration is now planning to flood the United States with refugees from arguably the world’s most deadly and backward regions, according to news stories on Sunday.
During the busy Sunday morning TV news cavalcade, it was reported that the two men who gave the American people a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran that the United States will promised to bring as many as 85,000 mostly Muslim refugees during next year as Syrians continue to flee the violence between the current regime and the radical Islamic terrorists.
President Barack Obama and his minions had originally announced they would bring in about 70,000 Syrian refugees next year. In 2017,they will bring in another 100,000, Kerry informed German reporters in Berlin. Germany has already opened their borders to that many and several German citizen groups are already complaining about the drain on the already economically depressed country.
Not all of the next 100,000 refugees will emanate from the Syrian conflict, although many will be from Arab countries. Many of the refugees will come from areas in Africa that are experiencing similar problems with Islamist groups such as Al-Shabaab, Boko Haram and the Iranian backed Houthi Network in Yemen.
In fact, the demographics of the African refugees almost mirror those of the Syrians. According to the United Nations, 68 percent of the refugees from Africa already flowing into Italy from Yemen are men, while children make up 18 percent and women on 13 percent.
“We’re doing what we know we can manage immediately and would like to take more [refugees],” Kerry told reporters. Unfortunately for Kerry, Obama and the open-borders advocates in the United States, there are security and screening restrictions that were wisely “put in place after the Sept. 11, 2001,” said a former U.S. police officer.
“Those unprovoked terrorist attacks on the U.S. forced liberal Democrats at the time to accept immigration restrictions,” former Det. Lenny Palmiera noted. “There’s no one arguing about immigration being good for America. But bringing in the world’s ‘biggest losers’ isn’t what will strengthen the nation,” he added.
At one point, Kerry began to wax elegant by saying: “This step is in keeping with America’s best tradition as a land of second chances and a beacon of hope.” Kerry reportedly met with his German counterpart, Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, to discuss Germany’s decision to be a destination for many of the refugees.
Advocates for refugees, especially in the United Nations, are calling for large countries such as the United States to open their arms and take as many Syrians as they can handle. Those who wish to move slowly say the key words in that statement are “as many Syrians as they can handle.” Last week, a number of former Obama minions reportedly signed a letter to the President and Congress urging them to take 100,000 immediately and more later.
“These are ‘swells’ who live in communities that will never see a Syrian or African refugee and therefore won’t be vulnerable to terrorist attacks or murders. It’s the Democrats’ beloved ‘middle-class’ who will be vulnerable,” said Det. Palmiera.
Despite President Obama’s and Secretary Kerry’s assurances that refugees will be vetted before living in the U.S., no one really believes their statements. “Analysis of current reports on domestic jihadist terrorism indicates Americans need firearms for self-defense now more than ever,” gun rights expert John M. Snyder told the Examiner.
Snyder, who sits on the advisory boards for major law enforcement organizations, said, “Last month’s Terror Threat Snapshot by the majority staff of the Homeland Security Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives says the terror threat level in the United States is high and ‘getting steadily worse.’ It states there have been ‘more U.S. based jihadist terror cases in 2015 than in any full year since 9/11.'”
