State Department: “Admitting more than 10,000 Syrian refugees into the US within 2016”; that number is grossly understated and deceptive
8/19/16 – This story by Laura Koran of CNN was no longer on the CNN website within minutes of posting. I only found one other web source that I could list here for a reference. Here is the story in its entirety as it was posted by CNN via the mobile app and also posted on WPTZ, a Vermont NBC affiliate.
US EXPECTS TO SURPASS SYRIAN REFUGEE ADMISSIONS TARGET
By Laura Koran, CNN Aug 19, 2016 11:10 AM ET
The Obama administration expects to mark a major milestone in the coming weeks, admitting more than 10,000 Syrian refugees into the US within 2016 Fiscal Year, a State Department official told CNN Friday.
The official said the administration can — and likely will — accept more than 10,000 applicants, as the goal is “a floor, not a ceiling,” and admissions are expected to continue at their current pace for the remaining six weeks. (emphasis added)
The US has admitted 9,098 Syrians into the country as refugees since October 1, 2015, when the goal went into effect, and 10,981 since the conflict began, according to State Department data.
The President will begin consultations with Congress next month to determine how many refugees will be admitted in the 2017 Fiscal Year. He has not yet set those allocations, according to the official.
President Barack Obama set the goal last fall, as the migrant crisis in Europe and the Middle East was hitting critical mass last summer, and leaders in the international community were calling on the US and other world powers to do more to help the growing displaced population.
Initially, there were concerns about the administration’s ability to meet the new target.
The US had only admitted about 1,900 refugees in the first four years of the conflict, and was facing a backlog of UN case referrals.
But admissions spiked dramatically starting in May, after the US beefed up staffing at key processing locations in Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt, accelerating the security vetting and interview process for applicants.
While meeting the target is likely to be touted as a major achievement for the administration, not everyone is happy about the accomplishment.
Critics of the resettlement program — including Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump — have long expressed concern about the potential for ISIS or other terrorist groups to exploit refugee flows to reach the West.
State Department officials have stood by the rigor of their vetting process, insisting refugees are the most thoroughly screened group of travelers to the US.
I think there are several reasons they may have wanted to or been instructed to take this article down. Let’s look at a few.
In November of 2015, Governor Abbot of TX declared publicly and released a copy of a letter he wrote to President Obama, that his state would not accept refugees sent there.
“Neither you nor any federal official can guarantee that Syrian refugees will not be part of any terrorist activity,” Abbott wrote in a letter to President Obama. “As such, opening our door to them irresponsibly exposes our fellow Americans to unacceptable peril.”
By February 2016 at least one resident of a Texas town was leaving for a safer city due to the swarms of migrants descending upon Amarillo.
Karen Sherman, who fled to Montana, found herself participating in a protest in front of the Missoula County Courthouse regarding the very same issue: planned forced migration into Western Montana.
“Amarillo is overrun with refugees,” she said. “Our city is failing because of the refugees. We have 22 different languages spoken in our schools. We’ve got 42 languages being fielded by our 9-1-1 call centers, and crime is just through the roof. We need to exercise caution, especially for the sake of our children.”
The protesters carried signs that read, “Christian Refugees 2 Christian Nations, Muslim Refugees 2 Muslim Nations, That’s Only Fair,” and “Refugee Resettlement Means Big $$$$$ – No Accountability.”
Retired DHS officer and whistleblower Philip Haney was interviewed on the Alex Jones show where he revealed the overwhelming numbers and devastating consequences to city and local governments as migrants are given affordable housing and manufacturing jobs, housing and jobs that would otherwise go to US citizens.
World Net Daily reported in February, “Amarillo has received 5,251 refugees since 2002, according to the Federal Refugee Database. That’s more than half of the nearly 8,000 sent to Texas during that period. President Obama has increased the number of foreign refugees bound for American soil in fiscal 2016 to 85,000. That’s a 20% increase over the previous year and 10,000 will come from the jihadist hotbed of Syria”
The Department of Education pays only $100 per immigrant child but sets a requirement that each child be brought up to grade level within a year. Activists point out this expectation is beyond ridiculous because these children “don’t even know how to use the bathroom.”
InfoWars John Bowne reported, “Refugees immediately qualify for full welfare benefits, green card status within one year, and receive full citizenship including voting rights within five years…The future of the meaning of even being a citizen of the United States is on the chopping block.”
How many of these migrants will be allowed to vote this November?
The number from the State Department in the news story is very deceptive. But for anyone not following the issues closely from trusted sources, how would you know that? It is not accidental; it is intentional to give the public kernels of truth while they assume you will just not pay attention, which is exactly how we got into this mess, by US Citizens not paying attention and not taking action when action was required long ago.
Alex Jones reported many times that there were over 230 immigrants in his alma mater, Northwest Hills, in one year.
“They did the same thing in Europe where they’d say it was 100,000 a year when it was over a million a year. And Obama claims it’s under 100,000 when, ladies and gentlemen, it’s tens of thousands in Austin, Texas alone, hundreds per school this year. Every high school is packed with ‘Syrian Refugees’. They’re not Syrian, most of them. And most of them aren’t children; most of them are military age men.”
And, Hillary Clinton wants to increase number of refugees brought to the US by over 500 percent.
“Look, we’re facing the worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II, and I think the United States has to do more, and I would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000 and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people that we would take in,” Clinton said during a Sept. 20 appearance on CBS’ Face the Nation.
Even left-leaning Politifact admitted, “A jump to 65,000 would be a 550 percent increase.”
And the other “little” fact? That Clinton and Obama created the havoc in the Middle East! How convenient that they use that as the excuse to invade Europe and the US with Muslims, denying persecuted Christians entry and playing a part in their torture and slaughter. There were lots of Christians in Syria that were ignored! The protest signs in Montana had it right, “Christian Refugees 2 Christian Nations, Muslim Refugees 2 Muslim Nations, That’s Only Fair.”
Why do you think Muslim nations are not taking any of these refugees, hmmm? Because it’s part of a strategy to create catastrophic chaos in all of the West only to then first offer then shortly after impose the solution of one world government.
This is a profoundly serious issue; one that cannot be ignored. The danger is so great and our reaction to the impending threat so very slow that I pray that we are not beyond the point of no return.
