Senator Grassley: Stop funding for Syrian resettlement until security is assured

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 7, 2015

This is a meaningful initiative, if only more US Senators and Members of Congress had sufficient backbone to call for it—stop the funding!

From Press TV (Iranian TV):

Chuck Grassley

Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) knows what needs to be done—stop the funding!

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley is persuading his colleagues to limit funding to be sued [used?–ed] for bringing refugees from Syria into the United States over security concerns.

In a letter Grassley sent to Sens. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) and Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), he demanded that they impose “firm limits” on allocation of funding for refugee resettlement.

“I urge that you, as part of the appropriations legislation before the committee, require, as a condition for any funding for refugee resettlement for Syrian refugees, a comprehensive plan on how security will be achieved,” Grassley wrote. “Furthermore, not one dollar should be expended until stringent parameters for vetting these refugees are established.”

[….]

He is now luring Cochran and Mikulski into including a provision in any spending bill, which would require homeland security and intelligence officials to sign off on the plan to bring in Syrian refugees.

Senators Leahy and Graham want more money, here!

In addition, Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have also rolled out legislation, which would give the Obama administration an extra $1 billion in emergency funding.

Earlier this year, FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers that there are “gaps” in the screening process for letting Syrians to come to the US.

Go here for more at Breitbart, including a copy of the letter.

He [Grassley] urges that limitations be places on the fiscal year 2016 spending measures to ensure the safety of the homeland.

  4. Refugee Resettlement occurring within the United States should be segregated from Christians and Jews. Bringing 3rd World refugees into a civilized neighborhood can only produce friction. Some Islamists don’t like dogs, none like pork or even the odor drifting off your Bar-B-Q is offensive. Most do not want to assimilate for follow our system of laws but demand Christians to bow down to their demand as cited by the Koran.
    So it is in their best interest that they are segregated away into their own communities preferably on a dead end road with signage outside the community that pertains to Islam.
    Some Blacks may not like the word segregation but America is still a free country. If Christians want to have Muslims as neighbors then so be it. I’m an old man and I prefer to be surrounded by Christian people who say Merry Christmas and God Bless you when you sneeze and everybody love Bar-B-Q pork spare ribs. To each to their own but don’t come to me and demand that I convert to Islam because it will be a earnest “DROP DEAD!”.

    If you are a member of NumbersUSA, there is a FAX on your action board regarding this proposal by Leahy and Graham, as well as other refugee-related FAXs. Durbin has dropped in their rating from C- to D.

      I encourage you to join NumbersUSA, whose focus is more on immigration (both legal and illegal) but they recently have focused on refugees as well because it is all part of immigration policy. NumbersUSA has managed to stop comprehensive immigration several times by flooding representatives’ offices with FAXs and phone calls, so our reps do listen if enough people contact them.
