Refugee Resettlement Watch

Reminder: House hearing on Syrian refugees tomorrow at 9 a.m.

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 18, 2015

The House Judiciary Committee, Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security had previously scheduled this hearing before all hell broke loose with the ISIS terror attack in Paris and the subsequent political explosion here in the US about the Obama plan to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees across the country before the end of September 2016.

Go here for information on the hearing (I assume there will be live-streaming).

There is also expected to be a vote tomorrow on the bill many believe Speaker Paul Ryan is using to distract attention from the much more significant way of halting this unpopular resettlement plan and that is to cut the funding.  Go here to learn more about all of that.

    A you tube video needs to be released of all the refugees that have been involved in terrorists plots. The word needs to get out that bringing refugees from syria is dangerous and idiotic. Most of them may be harmless and just seeking s better life. But all it takes is One. One to bomb a marketplace and kill hundreds. We have to stop this trojan horse.

    I don’t think the American people are fooled (although Congress apparently is). Most of the comments to a Yahoo story today about governors rejecting refugees are negative. Here’s one of the better ones from Rhonda D:

    “Mr. President, maybe you need to watch the news instead of playing so much golf and taking so many vacations on our dime. Three year olds are being trained to be suicide bombers and killers by ISIS. Just today a Syrian woman blew herself up harming her fellow cohorts due to this religion, your religion, your religion perhaps? Does the safety of American citizens mean so little to you that you would bring in potential suicide bombers and trained killers to bolster Democrat votes? I thank my governor for seeking to protect his citizens. I have no confidence in your jab at my religion and in your attempts to flood American cities with potential killers of us, “the infidels”. Let the Middle Eastern countries take care of their own after all they share the same beliefs. We could provide air support to help bomb ISIS and assist them to help the Syrians but I resent taking on their responsibility. What just happened in Paris? More importantly, why?’

    How nearly SEVENTY have been arrested in America over ISIS plots in last 18 months – including refugees who had been given safe haven but ‘turned to terror’ http://tinyurl.com/nt8gjh9
