At Senate hearing, US State Department refuses to say how many Syrians in next year’s flow

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 28, 2016

I’m writing and listening to the hearing in the US Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest.  Eventually, when the video is available, you should all take a couple of hours and watch this.  Right now Senator Al Franken is talking and doing the ‘my grandfather came from Russia and read the poem on the Statue of Liberty (his ignorance is so profound) act.’


Henshaw says the White House hasn’t told them yet about how many Syrians will be in next year’s migration stream.

One of the things that continues to amaze me, it shouldn’t, and that is the Left is always focused on emotions and the facts be damned!

But I digress…..

One big piece of news is that the Obama Administration is refusing to say how many Syrians they want to see admitted beginning Saturday (the first day of the fiscal year).

Simon Henshaw Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration U.S. Department of State told Senator Grassley only that it would be more than 12,500.

Grassley quipped (I’m paraphrasing), ‘is that because it’s a hot political item.’

Yes, exactly. They know the public would go crazy to hear that we were going to bring in 20,000, 30,000 or more.

The subject of Hillary’s 65,000 Syrian Muslim (98% are Sunni Muslims) proposal was raised and Senator Sessions wanted to know, if she becomes President, could she get that number.  Henshaw answered that the President can change the numbers ‘with consultation with Congress.’ So, that would mean that Donald Trump would have the same power!

We previously reported that a resettlement contractor told an audience in California that 20,000-30,000 is the Syrian target number.

At this moment Senator Cruz is doing a really good job of making the point about the high Syrian Muslim population being admitted to the US in contrast to the tiny number of Christians.

    In the WND article by Leo Hohmann, Sessions becomes frustrated with the lack of response from Rodriguez and states,”“This is absolutely breathtaking. It’s a total disrespect to this body that is in charge of giving you money to run your business, and we should quit giving you money, if you don’t respond and you don’t know basic things.” Well, Congress should stop giving them money, but for some reason, they don’t.

    You do marvelous work.

    Instead of calling them “refugees’, perhaps the most apt term is “enemy combatants”. After all, any non-muslim is known as such to them.

    If people do not understand the gravity of the war we are in they will never be able to resist, just like the hundreds of those unarmed Christians who have been brutally murdered by these savages.

    Check out John Guandolo’s “Raising a Jihadi Generation”.



  7. People are not aware that we are going to be facing a large number of Muslim Refugee in a Muslim Resettlement Program. I haven’t heard anything about it on the news. I am going to listen to the evening news now. Thank you for this information.

      Hi Clara, You need to stop watching the news because this subject is virtually never on FOX and certainly not on CNN, ABC, NBC etc… read online. Read Breitbart every day and check the Drudge report several times a day. You will be amazed what the media misses on purpose!
