Obama unilaterally ordered immigration to allow 10,000 Syrian refugees into this country this year.
Then, White House spokesman Josh Earnest had the audacity 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 refugees. 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!
