    America at risk: Obama still plans to let in 10,000 refugees after Paris attack




    After terrorists launched multiple attacks in France killing 129 and wounding 350, the Obama Administration is still planning to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Even though it is known the assaults were carried out by three coordinated teams that included a 25-year-old Syrian terrorist, according to French officials is turning a blind eye to the possible threat of something similar happening in the U.S.
    The Washington Times reports that Republicans have been warning that it’s all but impossible to stop terrorists from hiding among the migrants. However, a top White House adviser said on Sunday that President Obama still plans to accept the Syrian refugees. “We’re still planning to take in Syrian refugees,” Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes said on “Fox News Sunday.”
    It has been reported that one of the terrorists in Friday’s deadly attacks on Paris may have used a Syrian passport to enter Europe with a flood of refugees, but Rhodes expressed confidence in the background-check system.
    “We have very robust vetting procedures for those refugees. It involves our intelligence community, our National Counterterrorism Center, extensive interviews, vetting them against all the available information,” Rhodes said.
    Not everyone shares Rhodes confidence. Rep. Peter King, the New York Republican who heads the House Homeland Security intelligence subcommittee, called the statement “untrue.”
    “There’s virtually no vetting because there are no databases in Syria. There are no government records. We don’t know who these people are,” King said on “Fox News Sunday.” He added, “And when you meet with the people doing the vetting, they tell us that.”
    King, as well as others, question the intentions of the Obama Administration with regard to bringing in Syrian refugees. “They [the White House] are rolling the dice here, and we know that ISIS wants to bring in terrorists with these refugees,” King said. He believes President Obama should immediately stop taking Syrian refugees into the United States.


    According to USA Today, House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul, (write: homeland.security@mail.house.gov) R-Texas, said there are "gaping holes" in the vetting system for the Syrian refugees. "We (Congress) don't want to be complicit in a program that could bring terrorists into the U.S.," he said.

    King feels Obama should take decisive action. "He should absolutely suspend it (the refugee program) unless they can show 100 percent that a person is not involved with ISIS," King said, referring to Islamic State terrorists."Right now, there is no responsible way to do the vetting, and that’s the reality." Of course Rhodes thinks otherwise and says the U.S. should not turn its back on the refugees.

    Speaking to a cheering Southeast Texas crowd Saturday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump stated that U.S. immigration policy is lax on several fronts and that letting in Syrian refugees would pose a serious security risk. “Our president wants to take in 250,000 from Syria,” said Trump, noting early reports that one of the Paris attackers might have been from Syria. “We all have heart, and we all want people taken care of and all that, but some of them are going to have problems, big problems. He added, "You’d have to be insane” to allow so many refugees to come to the U.S."
    Even Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a candidate for the GOP nomination for president, spoke against it. "This is a swarm of refugees," he said. "You can have 1,000 people come in, and 999 of them are just poor people fleeing oppression and violence, but one of them is an ISIS fighter. If that’s the case, you have a problem, and there is no way to vet that out."
    What will it take for this American president to put the safety and well-being of American citizens first? From everything he has done for the past seven years, it doesn't appear that will be a top priority any time soon.

    Hopefully there will be some positive outcomes with the freshness of the Paris attacks on their minds. No Syrian refugees or others should be coming here. We cannot screen them.

    There has to be a way to undo these forced refugee programs by the UN and other groups. States and communities should be able to reject them coming.

    Correct you are! It's not just Syrian refugees, it's all refugees, it's all immigrants at this point. We don't vet or screen any of them. It's a dollar mill for USCIS that gets money for processing immigrants, it's a dollar mill for these 501 C 3 charity frauds that are paid millions of dollars for settling refugees, it's a dollar mill for US immigration lawyers, it's a dollar mill for some States who want more poverty and the welfare dollars they steal from US taxpayers, it's a dollar mill for the private prisons who need criminals to fill up their jail cells, it's all about the money. These low-life outfits from the private companies to the government agencies to the lowest of low "charities" rake in the dough by overpopulating the US, stealing jobs from citizens, deflating the wages and incomes of Americans, robbing American Kids of their educations, exploiting the health care funds, running up the debt when there isn't enough to go around, and killing Americans .... for money.

    Our country has never been in such a low spot since slavery. Our present situation is the so dire and Americans are in such peril from so many angles and directions, it's pathetic. And what are some of our members of Congress pushing? Ground troops in Syria??!! Again, it's all about the money. There is no reason whatsoever for the US to send ground troops to Syria, there is no reason whatsoever for the US to do anything except keep these people out of our country and remove the ones who are already here. Yes, that's Muslims. Until the Muslim community uses it's own resources from their numerous oil rich nations to prove themselves a viable people with viable standards, then we don't want them here. We don't need them here, they serve no purpose here, we have our own Muslims, we don't need foreign Muslims, there are no jobs for them, no money for them, no one wants them here, no one needs them here, so why let any Muslims come here from these Middle Eastern countries that can't even keep their own peace in their own nation resulting in the need for one form of dictator or another, monarch's included just to maintain order?

    Sorry, foreign Muslims, but your track records and reputations worldwide speak for themselves. Go home and make a nice life in a country that you belong to and just might want you to be there, you know the ones with all your families and friends and Mosques and so forth.
