ACTION ALERT: Write Your Congressman and Urge Co-Sponsorship of Resettlement Accountability National Security Act

You are not helpless. You can take action to help protect our country by writing to your Congressman and urging him or her to co-sponsor the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act.

As we have discussed frequently on The Teri O’Brien Show (here, here and here), the Obama Regime’s scheme to “remake” America is a war with many fronts, including, but not limited to, the illegal amnesties, DACA and PACA, the wrecking ball for the suburbs, and the mother of all income distribution schemes, Obamacare. Now, here comes the “refugee” “crisis,” an excuse for the Left to guilt trip us into importing more potential Tsarnaevs into our country.

I know that many of you are frustrated, watching Obama destroy the country, and that you feel powerless to do anything. You are not powerless, but you must take action. One thing that you can do right now is contact your member of Congress and tell him that you want him or her to become a co-sponsor of Rep. Brian Babin’s (R-TX) bill, the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act (H.R. 3314).

To make it easy for you to do that, I have written a sample letter that you can use, which is pasted below. You can also download a copy, which is a Word file that you can customize with your name and that of your representative here.

Go to these sites to find the contact information for your representative.

I leave it to you whether you send a dead tree letter or an email. The latter is the most convenient, but some say that the former is harder to ignore.

Please do this now. We all have the obligation to try to bring our country back from the brink.

(Room Number) (Name) House Office Building

United States House of Representatives

Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Representative (last name):

I am writing to you to urge you to become a co-sponsor of the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act (H.R. 3314), introduced July 30, 2015 by Rep. Brian Babin of Texas. This legislation places an immediate suspension on allowing immigrants into the United States under the refugee resettlement program, until the Government Accountability Office (GAO) completes a thorough examination of its costs on federal, state and local governments.

The current migrant invasion of Europe by people from the Middle East makes this important examination of the impact of allowing thousands of people from that part of the world into our country particularly urgent, especially since the Obama administration has declared that we need to admit at least 10,000 in Fiscal Year 2016. On September 9, Sen. Charles Grassley, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, reported on his meeting with Sec. of State John Kerry and his deputy, Anne Richard, Assistant Secretary for Population, Refugees and Migration. He states

“Secretary Kerry initially said that the Obama administration is seeking a reasonable increase in refugees allowed into the United States in the upcoming fiscal year.  But when pressed, the administration indicated that they were considering opening the floodgates and using emergency authority to go above what they proposed to Congress in today’s consultation.   The administration also has not ruled out potentially paroling thousands of Syrians into the United States.”

In addition, U.S. News and World Report recently reported that several members of Congress plan to use the Pope’s upcoming visit to press for the admission of more Middle Eastern refugees into the United States.

We are a compassionate society, and we naturally want to help people fleeing terrorism and war; however, our first priority must be protecting our national security and the interests of U.S. taxpayers. Please consider the following facts:

In June, 2015, Rep. Michael McCaul, Chairman, House Homeland Security Committee, wrote to President Obama, urging him to consider the very serious national security concerns represented by allowing unvetted refugees from the Middle East into our country, something he correctly noted is “very dangerous,” given the statements by terrorists that they plan to exploit the refugee programs to infiltrate the West. The letter notes  “[i]n a Committee on Homeland Security hearing held in February, the Director of the National Counterrorism Center acknowledged that refugees from the conflict in Syria and Iraq being admitted to the United States were a ‘population of concern, given the possibility that members of the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) of al Qaeda networks such as the al Nusra Front might attempt to exploit refugee programs to gain entry to the United States.”

FBI director James Comey has stated that we currently have terrorism investigations in all 50 states. U.S. Attorney for Minnesota Andrew Luger has stated that “We have a terror recruiting problem in Minnesota.” He referred to the Somali refugee community in Minneapolis, and interestingly, as many have noted, the problem is less with the refugees themselves and more with their children. Consider the example of the Tsarnaevs in Massachusetts. Are we really willing to take the risk of having thousands of Tsarnaevs in our country?

We also need to consider the burden on U.S. taxpayers created by the influx of poor, low-skilled people into country. Our assistance programs are already straining under the load of Americans who need help, and data from the Office of Refugee Resettlement shows that more than 90 percent of recent refugees from Middle Eastern nations are on food stamps and nearly 70 percent receive cash assistance. In addition, local school districts and law enforcement will face tremendous challenges if we aren’t careful about admitting people from all over the world.

For all these reasons, I urge you to become a co-sponsor of the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act (H.R. 3314). Please respond to this letter with your thoughts about this very critical matter. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Very truly yours,

Teri O’Brien
