Syrian refugees: UK beat down, but where is the beat down of Obama?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 6, 2015

There is something really really strange going on! 

Either the United Nations, Amnesty International or the myriad members of the NGO humanitarian gang can’t bring themselves (yet!) to criticize America’s first black President, or Obama has another surprise coming for our citizens already disgusted with his open door policy to migrants of every stripe.

(Despite letters from Members of Congress, here, Obama could at any time expand refugee resettlement of Syrians claiming an emergency! Is that the next shoe to drop?)

The largest resettlement country in the world—the US—is missing and not a peep in any of the news reports on Amnesty’s latest guilt-trip report.

Why is the US left out of any blasts (like this one) coming from groups such as Amnesty International, entitled:  UK offers just 90 places for Syrian refugees! Abject failure says Amnesty?

From Russia Today:

As Syrians continue to face the horrors of war and displacement, the UK government has failed in welcoming its “fair share” of Syrian refugees in urgent humanitarian need, a damning report warns.

The 24-page report, entitled ‘Hardship, Hope and Resettlement: Refugees from Syria tell their stories,’ was published by Amnesty International on Wednesday.

Germany is asking for further destabilization:

While Germany has set a positive example by resettling 30,000 refugees, other European states have failed to open their doors sufficiently, Amnesty warns.

Britain has offered a paltry 90 places, while Denmark and Spain have offered 140 and 130 respectively.

[….]

Over the next three years, the British government is expected to resettle several hundred Syrians in the UK.

This contrasts sharply with UN recommendations.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is urging governments worldwide to offer 130,000 resettlement places to Syrian refugees in the next 12 months alone.

Here is another report on the story which tells us something we already knew, but not a peep about the US.

The six Gulf Cooperation Council countries have offered no places to Syrian refugees since the onset of the conflict.

No complaints about the US here either.  However, lots of complaints against the Canadian government for saying it will take religious minorities over Muslims!  Those Islamic Caliphate expanders at the UN and in the international Left are fuming over that!  Canada is “discriminating” they say!

Numbers are out! through the first of February (4 months into fiscal year 2015)!

The US has admitted 249 Syrians this fiscal year (compared to thousands and thousands of Somalis and Iraqis). Homeland Security and the State Department are definitely foot-dragging, but why?

  1. […] a trickle.  I am still puzzled why the UN and its “humanitarian” cheering squad are not squawking at Obama over the hold-up as they went absolutely nuts when George Bush did the same thing in his Presidency […]
