New members added to Senate Jihad Caucus as legislators tell Obama to speed up screening of Syrians
Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 14, 2015
13 Senators and 71 Members of Congress sent a letter to President Obama on Friday urging the administration to hurry-up with the “screening” process for Syrian refugees and get them here more quickly.
Previously we told you about the Senate Jihad Caucus which called for MORE Syrians to be admitted to the US. Looks like we have more Senators to add to the Caucus.
(97% of the Syrians admitted so far are Muslims chosen by the UN.)
This effort was spearheaded by Senator Richard Blumenthal who, as we pointed out here, appears to be in the thrall of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
From the Independent Journal:
Last week, 84 Democratic lawmakers sent a letter to the departments of State and Homeland Security urging them to expedite the security clearing process for Syrian refugees coming to the United States.
The letter, sent Friday, followed only one day after the heads of the FBI and National Counterterrorism Center warned in a Senate hearing that the intelligence community lacks enough information to ensure Syrian refugees pose no danger to the United States.
The signatories — 13 Senators and 71 Representatives — are all Democrats.
Go here and see if your Senators and Member of Congress are on the list of members who signed a letter disregarding American security to advance their own agenda.
Jihad Caucus now numbers 23 (9 women)!
Here (below) are the original members of the Senate Jihad Caucus (in red are those who are original members and who also signed this newest appeal to Obama).
Dick Durbin (D-IL)
Al Franken (D-MN)
Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)
Patrick Leahy (D-VT)
Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)
Patty Murray (D-WA)
Robert Menendez (D-NJ)
Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)
Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)
Christopher Coons (D-DE) LOL! Delaware hasn’t taken a refugee in a couple of years!
Tim Kaine (D-VA)
Edward Markey (D-MA)
Sherrod Brown (D-OH)
Mazie Hirono (D-HI) LOL! Last I looked Hawaii took a whole 7 refugees last year!
In addition to the 4 in red (who signed both letters), the Senators, who are now saying ‘we don’t care what the FBI says,‘ and thus joined the Jihad Caucus on Friday are as follows:
Richard Blumenthal (D-CT)
Jeffrey Merkley (D-OR)
Christopher Murphy (D-CT)
Barbara Mikulski (D-MD)
Gary Peters (D-MI)
Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
Debbie Stabenow (D-MI)
Cory Booker (D-NJ)
Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)
I know you think it’s a waste to contact them, but do it anyway! They need to know you are watching—that this is not a freebie! Tell them how dare they jeopardize our security!
