Is the Obama Regime sneaking in even more Syrian “refugees” than the thousands they’ve told us about?You mean he’s being deceitful and not transparent? How can this be?
Regular readers here at teriobrien.com and listeners to The Teri O’Brien Show know that Obama vowed to bring in 10,000 “refugees” from Syria by the end of the fiscal year, September 30, 2016. You also know that his determination to meet this deadline has NOTHING to do with a “humanitarian crisis,” one that he arguably contributed to mightily with his feckless foreign policy of leading from (his) behind. No, this latest “fierce urgency of now,” which sort of sounds like what happens at one of your grandfather’s beer parties, is more about relieving himself all of over this wicked country, which not only deserves payback for its history of hideous racism, but which also needs a EXTREME makeover. Importing as many Muslims from the Middle East and dirt poor, semi-literate people from other 3rd World hell holes is just the way to make that happen.
And, as you well know, when Obama decides to make things happen, he doesn’t have time for any of these legalistic formalities, red tape or other obstacles designed to stop him from achieving his goals. Would he have been able to stop the rise of the oceans if he had waited for that stuff? Well, maybe that’s not the best example, but you know what I mean.
As reported at Lifezette, Ian Smith, a lawyer at the Immigration Reform Law Institute, has noticed something funny in the “refugee” numbers.
A discrepancy in statistics provided by the Department of Homeland Security has led an attorney for a Washington-based legal group to question whether administration officials are waiving Syrians into the United States by other means.
Ian Smith, of the Immigration Reform Law Institute, obtained the data through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. It shows that U.S. officials as of Jan. 25 had interviewed 9,800 refugee applicants since fiscal year 2014. That is nearly twice as many people as the combined number of approvals (4,774) and denials (417) during that time.
Smith speculated that the Obama administration is using “humanitarian parole” to admit Syrians who do not meet the eligibility requirements for refugees. That is the same method by which the Obama administration has allowed entry to the unaccompanied minors who have arrived en masse at the U.S.-Mexican border over the past few years.
“I really think that’s the case, because that’s what we’ve been seeing with the Central American Minors programs,” Smith said. …
Assistant Secretary of State Anne Richard told reporters this month that the United States so far this fiscal year has resettled 8,000 Syrians and is on track to reach 10,000, and possibly more, by Sept. 30. Nayla Rush, a Center for Immigration Studies senior researcher who has closely tracked the issue, said Obama wants to hit the target by the time he hosts a refugee summit in New York Sept. 20.
“They are going to be here, because the president has said it, and he’s keeping his word,” she said.
Rush said she does not believe Obama is using parole powers to admit Syrians.
“I don’t think they need it,” she said, noting that more than enough applicants will qualify under criteria set by the United Nations and U.S. law.
Rush said she believes some Syrians will end up coming through other ways, however. She pointed to a conference in February in which Beth Ferris, a Georgetown University professor and humanitarian refugee policy adviser to the United Nations secretary-general, said there are “alternative safe pathways” that could inflate the number of fleeing Syrians entering America to 200,000. Possibilities include giving scholarships and extending the ability of Syrian-Americans to sponsor relatives beyond their immediate family members to include aunts, uncles, and grandparents.
In addition, some 8,000 non-refugees from Syria who are already in the United States — both legally and illegally — have been allowed to remain under a program called Temporary Protected Status. The Department of Homeland Security recently renewed that status for another year.
To accomplish its goal of accepting 10,000 refugees, the United States launched a “surge program” that included opening a “temporary processing center” in Amman, Jordan. That condensed the process from 18 months to just three months. The United Nations selects applicants and forwards them to U.S. officials. The acceptance rate is high. (emphasis mine)
Of course, the acceptance rate is high! It’s part of the plan, Serf. Your part? Submit, and work hard so that you can pay for all the government benefits that “refugees” start collecting when they are resettled in America.
Is this a good time to mention that every recent Islamist terror attack in the United States(and that’s virtually every terror attack on our soil) was carried out by a Muslim immigrant or asylum grantee, or the child or children of Muslim immigrants or asylum seekers?
