See why we call Sen. Dick Durbin the leader of the U.S. Senate “jihad caucus,” courtesy of my friend and one-time Teri O’Brien Show guest, Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch. Hear the interview with Ann on the show here.
As you know, here and on The Teri O’Brien Show, we have been chronicling the activities of national embarrassment, Sen. Dick “Eddie Haskell” Durbin for over 10 years. (Check out this piece from 2005 “What’s a bigger national embarrassment – Gitmo or Durbin?”)
Now this from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., is calling for the United States to take in 100,000 Syrian refugees, ten times the amount the administration of President Barack Obama said last month that the United States would try to accept in the coming year.
Durbin did not put a timetable on his call for 100,000, but said he came to the conclusion that the United States needed to do more to relieve the refugee crisis in Europe after visiting refugee camps in the Greek island of Lesbos over the weekend. He and Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.; and Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., made the trip.
Durbin said Lesbos, normally home to 80,000 Greeks, had been flooded with 400,000 refugees from Syria and Afghanistan. They are arriving in a country already hugely strained from a financial crisis of its own.
Yes, I know that you think it’s a waste of time, but I call on my fellow Illinois citizens to contact Sen. Durbin’s office, and let him know that you think that importing thousands of Syrians, that the FBI has admitted we cannot vet, is a HUGE mistake. His contact information is here.
