Seems like just yesterday, in wake of Orlando terrorist slaughter, that CIA Director John Brennan was warning us that terrorist organizations like ISIS were seeking to exploit loopholes in the immigration systems of the West, including “refugee” resettlement programs.
Oh wait–it WAS just yesterday! No matter. The potential jihadists keep on coming.
From The Daily Caller:
According to State Department immigration data, 441 Syrian refugees have been admitted to the United States since June 12, the day Omar Mateen murdered 49 people in a crowded Orlando nightclub.
The Obama Administration has pledged to admit 10,000 Syrian refugees before October 1, and after this recent influx, will only need to bring in approximately 6,700 more to reach its Congressionally-approved goal. (RELATED: How Many Syrian Refugees Are In The USA, And How Many More Are Coming?)
A report from the Center for Immigration studies notes that 1,037 refugees were admitted in the month of May alone.
The 441 new arrivals have been resettled across 26 states, with Illinois (60), Florida (49), and Arizona (38) taking in the most Syrian refugees over that four-day timeframe.
Of the 49 new Syrian refugees resettled in Florida since the attack, 10 have been resettled in the greater Orlando area — with five resettled in Orlando proper and five resettled in Kissimmee. The rest of the refugees settled in Florida were placed in Clearwater (six), Delray Beach (five), Miami (five), Pensacola (five), Tampa (18).
Florida Gov. Rick Scott says he is opposed to resetting Syrian refugees in his state amid ongoing vetting concerns. Tuesday, following the attack, Scott expressed frustration that the administration is refusing to share information about the Syrians placed in his state.
“The White House said they will not share that information with the Florida law enforcement. They said, oh, that — those people have privacy rights,” Scott said during an appearance on Fox News.
“What about our security rights?” Scott continued. “The security and making sure if you live in my state, you’re gonna be safe. I’m responsible for the safety of the people in my state. I’m fed up with the fact that we’re not destroying ISIS. We’re not vetting these people; we’re not taking care of our own citizens.”
The Obama administration has dramatically increased its processing speed in order to meet the President’s goal of resettling at least 10,000 Syrian refugees in the U.S. this fiscal year.
The 1,523 Syrian refugees admitted so far this month have already exceeded last month’s record high of 1,069 Syrian refugee admissions. So far this fiscal year, the Obama Administration has admitted 4,328 Syrian refugees, 4,289 of whom are Muslims. (emphasis mine)
What could possibly go wrong? This country isn’t going to remake itself, Bitter Clinger!
Obama and the Left choose not to let this crisis go to waste by bleating about gun control. Here’s an idea: how about Islamic lunatic control rather than attempting to infringe on the Constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens?
What say you?
