The Obama administration is pushing for more and more Syrian refugees to be admitted to the United States, even in the wake of the ISIS-backed terrorist attack in Paris recently, which reports said included one Syrian migrant who held a refugee passport from Greece.
On the White House website, the administration attempts to assure us that it is on the case when it comes to vetting potential refugees, and that there is nothing for Americans to worry about.
“Refugees are subject to the highest level of security checks of any category of traveler to the United States, including the involvement of the National Counterterrorism Center, the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of State, and the Department of Defense,” the website notes in a section called “Screening.”
“All refugees, including Syrians, are admitted only after successful completion of this stringent security screening regime, which includes all available biographic and biometric information vetted against a broad array of law enforcement and intelligence community databases to confirm identity and ensure safety,” it added.
But the reality is very different, and that should not surprise Americans who are well aware of this president’s history of disinformation and untruths.
As reported by the American Mirror, one Syrian refugee who was admitted into Louisiana has already come up missing, and worse, the group responsible for him is not taking responsibility. And neither, of course, is the federal government.
Locally, WBRZ reported:
“WBRZ has learned Catholic Charities helped the refugee who settled in Baton Rouge, but said the immigrant left for another state after a couple of days, and they don’t know where the refugee went since they don’t track them.”
“We’re at the receiving end,” Chad Aguillard, executive director of Catholic Charities, said. “We receive them, we welcome them into our community and help them resettle. There has been a lot of commotion and fear with Syrians. The fear is justified, but we have to check that against reality.”
Moreover, Louisiana leaders are not happy with the Obama administration after it began dumping Syrian refugees into the state without even bothering to tell anyone.
“This is a federal program, and it was their responsibility, as the governor has stated, that they should have notified myself or governor directly,” said the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management Director, Kevin Davis.
No such thing, really, as “screening” and “tracking”
And about that so-called “screening” process – there really isn’t one, at least, not on the scale the president and his minions are attempting to portray.
Who says so? The FBI Director, James Comey.
In October, Comey told a House panel that no, the U.S. government has no real ability to vet people from Syria – because few Syrians, if any, are currently entered into U.S. intelligence databases. And they wouldn’t be, would they? They’re Syrians.
“We can only query against that which we have collected. And so if someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interest reflected in our database, we can query our database until the cows come home, but there will be nothing show up because we have no record of them,” Comey explained.
That was essentially the same answer the former chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., gave CNN recently, according to The Hill.
“I’m not sure why this shocked everybody,” Rogers said in reference to the Paris attacks. “There is not a vetting process … that can vet every single individual refugee coming in on the refugee program.”
