Washington Post: Boo hoo, Syrian resettlement to US going sloooowly

It appears that the reason the resettlement of mostly Sunni Syrians to the US (less than 1,000) in roughly the same time period as Canada is seeding 25,000 throughout our neighbor to the north, is that the US is taking serious security measures while Canada is not.

Andrew Harper
The UN’s man in Jordan, Andrew Harper: Canada was able to get thousands moved to Canada because they are less interested in security than the US government is…hummm!

Obama has promised 10,000 will be resettled here before September 30th (the last day of fiscal year 2016), but so far deep in the bowels of our security apparatus some officials are taking their jobs seriously.  That said, the WaPo tells us that the screening is being dramatically stepped up right now.

Here is the Washington Post (skipping the obligatory ‘poster mom and kids’ that open the report!):

….by the end of February, less than 1,000 Syrians have made it to the United States, and resettlement experts question whether the United States can reach its target by September.


Between February and April, the State Department and Homeland Security Department are pulling in additional staff to Jordan to help interview more and more Syrian applicants. The U.S. Embassy in Jordan said 30 officers from Homeland Security have been posted to Jordan and a new facility has been opened. Similiar efforts are underway in Lebanon and Iraq.


The U.N. refugee agency, which first interviews Syrians and refers vulnerable cases to U.S. authorities, also have shifted into a higher level of energy. Staff have been relocated to Amman from across the region, with evening shifts being put in place. In phone banks, U.N. staff members call refugees who may eligible for resettlement.


Andrew Harper, the U.N. refugee agency’s representative to Jordan, said the speedy resettlement of 25,000 Syrians in Canada has shown what can be done. But the big difference between Canada and the United States, Harper acknowledged, is their level of security concerns.

More here.  It simply is not true what the ‘humanitarians’ claim that terrorists don’t get in to the US as refugees.  Even the New York Times admits they do, here.

Just a reminder!  If Bernie or Hillary are elected President in November, you can be sure there will be no interruption in the flow of Middle Eastern and North African Muslims to the US.  It will be all over for us because after 4 or 8 more years of unabated flow, erasing America will be a done deal.  Get everyone you know to the polls this year!

  1. Canada is a great staging area for Jihadis, and they can pass through the border. They’ve already done it.
    The good news for me was America is screening the “refugees”


  2. If the benefits are better in America, they will just get visas to visit “relatives” here and disappear into a sanctuary city.


  3. Something to be said about being slow, as President Ronald Reagan said: “trust but (AND) verify” !

    Per Bible or not: We see that while there may be those in our lives that have earned our trust, ultimately God is the only one who is able to keep our trust. Ronald Reagan knew this. He also knew how to negotiate peace with an adversary through strength, and embraced the tenant that we can give our trust to others, but unless they are God, we need to verify – See more at: http://bibleornot.org/trust-but-verify-ronald-reagan-quote/#.dpuf


  4. Suspect there is more to this than Security concerns. ‘Welcoming’ tens of thousands of ‘refugees’ in a relatively short period of time would be a noticeable event. Trickling in a few here & there can easily be hidden even in the most targeted small cities especially now that this election year has become little more than a 3-Ring Circus. The deviance of this regime should never be underestimated.
