US State Department knocking itself out to get to Obama’s magic 10,000 Syrians this year

….But, clearly there is a test of wills going on within the Administration involving security concerns.
We reported yesterday that Obama’s State Department is way behind in bringing in the 10,000 (mostly Muslim) Syrians Obama promised to distribute to your towns by Sept. 30th, 2016.
CNN reported the news too (glad to see so many news outlets are using the State Department data bases) and tells us this (after reporting that Obama praised the Pope for washing feet to set the tone of the story):
The State Department and other agencies involved in vetting Syrian refugees say, however, that they are taking steps to speed up the process.
These include creating a “new pathway” for Syrians with relatives in the United States, though the State Department has not elaborated on what that pathway would look like. They are also increasing staff at key locations in Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq, according to a State Department official.
Additionally, the State Department announced on Wednesday it would be committing another $10 million to the UNHCR to help with refugee resettlement.
“We expect Syrian refugee arrivals to the U.S. to increase steadily throughout the fiscal year,” the official said, “ultimately culminating in the admission of at least 10,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the fiscal year.”
Read it all. And, see their map, it’s much nicer when you have a graphics department!
But, LOL! CNN fails to report that 99% of those admitted so far are Muslims. Where are the Christians?
Addendum: Remember readers, it is not just 10,000 Syrians that are of concern. American taxpayers are paying billions for the care of approximately 200,000 “humanitarian arrivals” each year.
