    SC Senator Lindsey Graham advances bill to bring in MORE Syrian refugees, more quickly

    Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 10, 2015

    Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, is also a contender for the Republican nomination for President. He joins Far Left Senator Patrick Leahy in his efforts to get the Syrians in here faster.

    Every time I see Graham, a proud member of the Gang of Eight on amnesty two years ago, I wonder whether Graham influences Rep. Trey Gowdy. Does Gowdy share Graham’s position on immigration?

    Does Graham keep a tight rein on Gowdy? Did either of them hear what the FBI said this week?


    How closely does Graham monitor the activities of South Carolina Rep. Gowdy who has been dragging his feet on holding any hearing on the Refugee Admissions Program in the subcommittee (which he chairs!) responsible for Refugee Program oversight?
    (A hearing was scheduled and postponed in the full House Judiciary Committee last week, but Gowdy, as subcommittee chairman, has been silent, and as such a disappointment, on the Syrian refugee question. If anyone has seen Gowdy raise concerns about bringing Syrians to America and his state, please send a news report my way and I will stand corrected.)

    And, Mr. Gowdy, how about a hearing on the Babin bill that has 22 co-sponsors as of this writing? Gowdy is not one of them!
    I digress, here is the news about Lindsey Graham and his pal Leahy.

    From The Hill (hat tip: Joanne). Emphasis is mine:

    A bipartisan pair of senators — including one presidential candidate — is pushing forward with an emergency spending bill to help strengthen the administration’s ability to combat the Syrian refugee crisis.

    Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have rolled out legislation that would provide an extra $1 billion in emergency funding, mandating that the White House tell Congress within 45 days how it will use the money.
    Dozens of Senate Democrats backed a letter from Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) [Hey, does Chris Murphy do the bidding of CAIR-CT too?—ed] earlier this week calling for an emergency spending bill. That letter was sent to Leahy and Graham, as well as Sens. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) and Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), the top two members on the Appropriations Committee. [Mikulski here—ed]
    But FBI Director James Comey said Thursday that there are “gaps” in the screening process for bringing Syrians into the United States.

    “There is risk associated of bringing anybody in from the outside, but specifically from a conflict zone like that,” he told members of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

    Graham, who is running for president, quickly came out in support of accepting more Syrian refugees after a photo of a drowned Syrian child went viral and sparked international outrage earlier this year. [He fell for the propaganda photo!—ed]
    His position pits him against not only many of his Republican colleagues, but also other 2016 presidential contenders. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is also running for president, said earlier this week that President Obama’s plan to accept additional Syrian refugees was “nothing short of crazy.”

    The Graham-Leahy bill also requires that Secretary of State John Kerry describe what security vetting refugees would have to undergo before being accepted into the country. [We already know they can’t screen the Syrians!—ed]

    How many times have you heard Lindsey Graham say on TV that “if we don’t do something over there, the terrorists will be here!” So how can he so blithely, in the face of testimony by the FBI director, still advocate getting more Syrians here faster?

    Lindsey Graham is a stupid traitor on the take with the Musilms.
