US Senators who make immigration policy live in a bubble! Syrians coming?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 16, 2013

Sheesh!  Can you believe it!  Senators Rubio and Graham, two chief proponents of ‘COMPREHENSIVE immigration reform,’ had no clue that the US State Department, at the behest of the UN, was contemplating bringing in possibly tens of thousands of Syrian refugees while thousands of their constituents know about it and disapprove.   So much for comprehensive!

Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Rubio and Graham in a bubble!

From Breitbart:

Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), two lawmakers who are part of the gang of eight immigration bill, are unaware of the administration’s willingness to accept thousands of Syrian refugees into the United States.

Rubio, a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, told Breitbart News, “Well this country has a long history of asylum and taking people who are fleeing oppression. On the other hand, given the nature of the Syrian conflict, like any asylum seeker, that they be carefully vetted. That’s my initial take. It’s the first I’ve heard of it.


“I don’t think that would go over very well. It’s news to me. I haven’t heard that,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, a member of the armed services committee, remarked to Breitbart News. He added, “I think it would be better policy to help the rebels build militarily than to bring them here. I think it would be big backlash [if the administration tried to brings the refugees here.]”

Be sure to visit the Breitbart story with quotes from other clueless Senators, so fixated on the Hispanic vote they haven’t any idea of who else is coming to America.

Readers might want to visit this post in which I discuss the Presidential Determination for FY2013.  Obama set the cap for refugee admissions for 2013 at 70,000.  They are on target to meet that number despite high unemployment rates and high welfare use rates for refugees.  And, btw, the President sends his determination to Congress for approval and it has been reported to us that NO ONE ever challenges it.

I do believe that the Refugee Act of 1980 (Kennedy, Biden, Carter!) has a provision for an ’emergency’ situation that would allow them to go over the cap and admit tens of thousands of Syrians.  I’ll have to do some research on that.

Keep up the pressure on your US Senators against S.744 and tell them NO to Syrians!

LOL! Sarah Palin said in a speech yesterday in Washington—these are all Muslims squabbling in the Middle East, so let Allah solve their problems!

  1. […] According to Northern Voices Online (a publication from Northern India), 2,000 Syrians have already been approved to come to the US in 2013, along with 30,000-40,000 additional Iraqis!  I guess this is another bit of new information for the Republican immigration wizards, those boys in a bubble—Rubio and Graham. […]


  2. […] NOT YET, but they sure are sending out feelers as we learned recently, here.  Although that news came as a big surprise to the Senate Republican brain trust of Rubio and Graham, here. […]


  3. I am sure Palin will get raked over the coals for her ‘offensive’ remark! LOL I am glad Rubio is being exposed as the clueless RINO politician he is. He must feel right at home with McCain, Graham and the Democrats.

      Rubio’s national career is over unless he backs out of the Gang of Eight real soon. He won’t have people on the conservative end of the political spectrum supporting him and they won’t stay neutral but will actually be working against him. He might have Grover Norquist and the establishment with him, but we all know that isn’t enough. The Hispanics are not going to rush over and support a Cuban either.
