How many more Ohio States before House Republicans move Rep. Babin’s bill?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 2, 2016

Yesterday, Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) went on Laura Ingraham’s radio program, and Julia Hahn at Breitbart tells us what happened.


Rep. Brian Babin (No fear!)

Regular readers here know that a freshman representative was the only Member of Congress in 2015 with the foresight and the nerve to introduce legislation to pause the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program when he introduced his bill HR 3314—Resettlement Accountability National Security Act of 2015.  (Click here to learn more and see the bill’s 86 co-sponsors)

Is your member of Congress one of the 86 (!) co-sponsors who signed on in 2015. If so, make sure you thank him or her and insist they do more!

Before I get to the interview with Ingraham, know this:

A bill proceeds in Congress with a first step—a committee of jurisdiction holds a  hearing.  Why did HR 3314 NEVER get a hearing?  Because House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Immigration subcommittee Chairman Trey Gowdy never gave it one.

Why did they not give it a hearing? Because Speaker Paul Ryan didn’t want a hearing on it! Then he blocked it by pushing a mealy-mouthed bill later.

And, now, as we have had one more terrorist incident involving a refugee, the bill will die with this Congress.

***Update*** More: Ryan silent on latest terror attack, here.


Trump test! How soon will Anne Richard go?

Trump’s big test is coming soon, he has the legal authority to pause the program without Congress, so what will Ryan do then (what is he already doing behind the scenes?).  So much depends on who Trump puts in place at Health and Human Services (his pick Rep. Tom Price is not a cosponsor of HR 3314, why?).  Who will be Secretary of State?

And, then readers, the biggest test of all will be how quickly he and his cabinet heads replace Anne Richard at the Dept. of State (Asst. Sec. of State for Population, Refugees and Migration) and Bob Carey at the Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS), and with whom they are replaced!  We will be watching!

Here is Hahn at Breitbart:

Congressman Brian Babin (R-TX) is calling for a total suspension of the controversial refugee resettlement program following the attack of young Americans at Ohio State University carried out by a Somali refugee.

“Our refugee program has basically become a Trojan Horse,” Babin said in a Thursday radio interview with nationally-syndicated host Laura Ingraham.

“We have to take a step back and reevaluate our asylum policies that are absolutely getting Americans killed for politically correct reasons,” Babin explained, adding that the Ohio State University refugee attack “comes on the heels of another Somali refugee stabbing in Minnesota” that took place in September.

“The threat is growing. It’s time for us to wake up,” Babin added. “We’ve got to look no further than Western Europe to see the results of what happens when you have… unchecked and completely overwhelming refugee numbers.”

Continue reading and be reminded of how the House leadership has thwarted Babin’s efforts.

Trip down memory lane!  Laura Ingraham called for a MORATORIUM ON MUSLIM IMMIGRATION years ago, see here.

    Anne I was just wondering if the victims of the Ohio State terrorist attack would have the recourse too sue Catholic Charities along with the US Catholic Conference of Bishops for bringing in these Refugee terrorists, also would they be able to also sue the state department and United Nations High commission for refugees. They should be able to litigate a lawsuit on all three of those agencies! Oh by the way I spoke to congresswoman Elise stefanik about the refugees coming into our country I let her know to let Speaker of the House Paul Ryan; the Establishment elitist Rino Republican and feckless quisling also known as Pauly poltroon to stop funding the refugee program & stop giving Obama the money for the refugee program. Thanks again and for all that you do have a very merry Christmas and a happy holiday season.🎅

      Really good idea. I’m not a lawyer and don’t have a clue, but one problem we have is that we don’t have many (any?) lawyers watching this for us on a daily basis. While the contractors and the open borders left have armies of lawyers!

    It’s simple Ann. No one on the Republican side of the aisle, let alone the Democratic side (though each side for their own reasons) will pull the plug on cheap labor for the big processing plants. Americans would demand better treatment and cleaner working conditions. These immigrants – no. THAT’s why. Big business rules, and I’m not actually sure Trump will do anything about that.

      STill have my fingers crossed. WE are all going to have to be ready to pounce if Trump doesn’t make a huge effort to slow the monster.

    Actually, if there is no desire to move on Babin’s proposal, it would behoove everyone if they could get someone to sponsor a Constitutional Carry bill proposal to at least have option to arm-up. Bring as many refugees as the government wants in that case. Send them back to their countries in a pine box if they do any terrorism.
