    Sens. Rubio, Graham Vote To Continue Muslim Immigration From Countries With Jihadist

    Sens. Rubio, Graham Vote To Continue Muslim Immigration From Countries With Jihadist Movements

    A pivotal vote on Muslim immigration split the Republican presidential field in the Senate—with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) voting to continue to allow large-scale Muslim immigration and Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) voting to pause Muslim immigration.

    The amendment, offered Sen. Rand Paul, would have suspended visa issuances to more than 30 Muslim countries with active Jihadist populations. Graham and Rubio were both members of the Gang of Eight, which proposed legislation that would expand Muslim immigration, and Paul and Cruz were both opponents of the Gang of Eight bill.

    Graham and Rubio’s vote against curbing Muslim migration follows the attack in San Bernardino. The male suspect, Syed Farook, is the son of Pakistani immigrants; and the female suspect, Farook’s wife, Tashfeen Malik, was a Pakistani native. According to CNN, the two met, “when he [Farook] had gone to Saudi Arabia in 2013 on the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca that Muslims are required to take at last once in their lifetime. It was during this trip that he met Malik, a native of Pakistan who came to the United States in July 2014 on a ‘fiancée visa’ and later became a lawful permanent resident.”

    Sen. Paul’s amendment failed 89-10, with only nine other Senators joining Paul’s bid for a halt to the large-scale distribution of visas to nations with jihadist populations. The nine others supporting Paul’s amendment were Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), Mike Enzi, Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL), Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS), Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) and Senator Ted Cruz.

    Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Republican Whip Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), and GOP Conference Chair Sen. John Thune (R-SD) voted against the amendment. Thune’s vote is particularly notable as the GOP conference is in charge of the Republican Party’s messaging in the Senate.

    As The Hill newspaper writes:

    Paul’s amendment would place a ‘pause’ on issuing visas to more than 30 countries, that the Kentucky Republican said are ‘at a high risk for exporting terrorists.’ It would also require that individuals from countries that participate in the Visa Waiver Program to either wait 30 days before coming to the United States or go through enhanced background and security checks, as well as requiring the government to perform additional screening on any admitted refugees.

    According to Rasmussen, 65 percent of conservative voters think the correct number of refugees to admit from the entire Middle East is zero. According to a Kellyanne Conway survey, a majority of Americans want a pause on all immigration from everywhere in the world.

    Under current immigration policy, the U.S. issues about 280,000 visas annually to temporary and permanent Muslim migrants— including more than a 100,000 green cards each year.

    Green card holders are given lifetime work permits and residency, welfare, and ultimately become full voting citizens of the United States. As the Senate Immigration Subcommittee has documented, over the next five years the U.S. will permanently resettle nearly 700,000 Muslim migrants on green cards— or a population larger than the size of Washington D.C. According to Pew Research, only 11 percent of Muslim Americans identify as Republican or leaning-Republican, making them one of the most reliable Democrat voting blocs in the country.

    Rubio’s opposition to Sen. Rand Paul’s effort to pause mass Muslim migration is consistent with Rubio’s voting record. Earlier this year, Rubio introduced an immigration expansion bill known as the I-Squared bill which would substantially expand immigration. That bill is backed by Mark Zuckerberg’s immigration lobbying group, as well as the lobbying firm chaired by Rupert Murdoch, former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, and Disney’s Bob Iger. It has also been endorsed by Oracle, whose billionaire co-founder Larry Ellison is helping to fund Rubio’s campaign. GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has said, “Senator Rubio works for the lobbyists, not for Americans. That is why he is receiving more money from Silicon Valley than any other candidate in this race. He is their puppet.”

    Rubio also co-authored the 2013 La-Raza backed amnesty and immigration expansion plan. Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz has detailed:

    Rubio’s [2013] Bill Would Have Opened Floodgates to Islamic Refugees”. Horowitz explained that the bill would have, “dramatically weakened the precautions against fraudulent asylum petitions by, among other things, eliminating the time constraints on filing those applications… [and] in totality… would have created endless avenues for this president to bring in an unlimited numbers of Islamic immigrants from the most volatile corners of the world.

    In recent weeks, Rubio has reiterated his support for bringing in Syrian refugees. In fact, in an interview on Fox News with Neil Cavuto, Rubio expressed his support for bringing in both very young and very old refugees, who will likely become instant public charges on the U.S. taxpayer. “Common sense still applies,” Rubio told Cavuto in his explanation about which migrants from terror-prone Muslim regions he would admit into the country. “If it’s a seven-year-old child, if it’s a 90-year-old widow, if it’s a well-known Chaldean priest, these are people you can vet.”

    In a Thursday letter to administration officials, Sens. Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions offered an opposite theory, saying that terrorists have proven they can not only recruit and groom young Muslim migrants, but the future children of Muslim migrants allowed in the country. They cited the Chattanooga shooter who recently murdered four marines and a Navy Sailor as being an example of a terrorist attack caused by immigration. Like Rubio’s hypothetical seven year-old Muslim migrants he says “common sense” tells you to let in, the Chattanooga shooter came here from Kuwait at around the age of six.

    Once young Syrian refugees have citizenship, they then have the right to bring in their relatives as well. The elderly widow, to take Rubio’s example, would be able to bring in her children, while also receiving costly medical and nursing care from U.S. taxpayers. Rubio has previously said he’d “hate” to block funding for Obama’s refugee program— which leaders are planning to push through by December 11th. As a result, Obama would not only be able to bring in the young and old Muslim migrants favored by Rubio, but the middle-aged Muslim migrants as well. Moreover, with his vote on Thursday, Rubio voted to continue immigration from not just Syria but every Muslim country in the world.

    In their joint letter, Sessions and Cruz explained the dangers this would pose:

    We are dealing with an enemy that has shown it is not only capable of bypassing U.S. screening, but of recruiting and radicalizing Muslim migrants after their entry to the United States. The recruitment of terrorists in the U.S. is not limited to adult migrants, but to their young children and to their U.S.-born children – which is why family immigration history is necessary to understand the nature of the threat… Congress is days away from consideration of an omnibus year-end funding bill that would set the U.S. on an autopilot path to approve green cards, asylee, and refugee status to approximately 170,000 migrants from Muslim countries during the next year.

    Okey, dokey! Now fellow Republicans, KICK THESE MORONS TO THE CURB! I want to see Rubio at less than 1% in the next poll, wherever it is, a state or a national poll, doesn't matter. I'd say do the same to Graham but I think he's already under 1%. GET THEM OUT OF THE RACE and as soon as you can, get them out of the US Senate.

    It's absolutely unbelievable that the US Senate wouldn't support Paul's Amendment. It's just unbelievable, unspeakable, incredible, beyond comprehension. So who are these "Senators" who wouldn't support Paul's Amendment working for? Americans? No. The United States? No. Someone and something else, with a very dark, dark side to it.

    Treason is in the air, beware.

    Hooray! GO ALIPAC!! Get them out of the race. Get them out of the news. Rubio and Graham have no problem at all with and are even promoting and encouraging if not calling for US ground troops in Syria. That's right, they want to call up our sons and daughters to go fight ISIS in Syria while they welcome ISIS into the United States.

    Have you ever heard of anything so absolutely and tragically absurd? That we have at least 2 US Senators in the race for the Republican nomination who have no problem with sending Americans to Syria to risk their lives killing ISIS while allowing Syrian Refugees who are all ISIS or families of ISIS to enter the US as "Refugees".

    It makes my head explode.

    Thank you W! Go get 'em. Knock 'em out. End their careers.

    LETS GO ALIPAC!!

    Unbelievable. Turkey .... whose President is in business with ISIS on ISIS oil deals which is why they shot down Russia's bomber over Syria. That's right, it wasn't ever even in Turkey airspace, it was shot down while in Syria and that's why the plane came down in Syria. Way to go, Rubio! You just proved beyond any doubt you aren't qualified to "lead" a group of Boy Scouts on a camping trip, let alone the United States.

    So tell us Rubio, is some of that oil money working its way into your pockets? Is that why your Buddy, Lindsey Graham has been to Syria 31 times in the past 2 years? That's right folks, Lindsey Graham said on either Fox News or CNN the other day that he knew what he was talking about because he's been over there 31 times in the past 2 years. WHAT??!! What is he doing over there? Who is he meeting with? For what purpose? My God ... someone needs to investigate this and right away. The only reason Lindsey Graham would be in Syria 31 times in the past 2 years is to pick up suitcases of money. Sorry, but there is no absolutely no other possible reason a US Senator would be in any country in the Middle East 2 times in the past 2 years, let alone .... 31 times. No valid reason whatsoever.

    Senate rejects Paul's crackdown on refugees

    Greg Nash
    Senators on Thursday rejected a push by Sen. Rand Paul to tie a battle over accepting refugees in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks to an ObamaCare repeal bill.
    Senators voted 10-89 on the amendment from the Kentucky Republican, who is running for president. Sixty votes were needed for the amendment to be adopted.

    ADVERTISEMENT



    Republicans Sens. John Barrasso (Wyo.), Ted Cruz (Texas), Mike Enzi (Wyo.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), Mike Lee (Utah), Jerry Moran (Kan.), Jeff Sessions (Ala.), Richard Shelby (Ala.), David Vitter (La.) and Paul supported the amendment.

    Paul's amendment would place a "pause" on issuing visas to more than 30 countries that the senator said are "at a high risk for exporting terrorists."

    It would also require that individuals from countries that participate in the Visa Waiver Program to either wait 30 days before coming to the United States or go through enhanced background and security checks, as well as requiring the government to perform additional screening on any admited refugees.

    "We spend hundreds of billions of dollars defending our country, and yet we cannot truly defend our country unless we defend our border," the Kentucky Republican said ahead of the vote. "I would urge senators who truly do want to defend our country to have increased border security by voting for this amendment."

    But Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) slammed Paul's proposal, saying that it makes us "look like we're cowering in our shoes."

    "I hate to say this about my good friend from Kentucky, but this is a bumper sticker kind of amendment. It says to keep us secure, it would stop even tourists from visiting this country for at least 30 days."

    Lawmakers have struggled with how to tackle the administration's plan to increase the number of refugees in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks.

    While House Republicans — and dozens of Democrats — backed legislation that would "pause" the acceptance of Syrian and Iraqi refugees until the administration can certify that they aren't a national security threat, Senate Democrats have vowed to block the legislation in the upper chamber.

    Meanwhile, Senate Democrats, along with Republican Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), have introduced legislation aimed at bolstering the Visa Waiver Program, though Republicans are divided on how far changes to the legislation should go.

    Wake Up Republicans. We need to stop all immigration for at least 10 to 20 years. All of it from everywhere, to give us time to sort out this mess, get it straight, get it fixed, absorb the surplus population immigration has poured into our country, get Americans back to work, get terrorists and illegal aliens out of here, and give our people some peace of mind, restore domestic tranquility promised by the preamble of the US Constitution, and reset the system so what has happened to the United States never ever happens again.

    You can't fix the plumbing with the water still on. You have to stop the flow to fix the problem. All of it.
