With “refugees” pouring out of Syria, Secretary of State John Kerry announced that the United States would be opening its doors significantly wider, accepting close to 200,000 migrants over the next two years. According to The Blaze, Sec. Kerry said the U.S. is looking to accept 85,000 refugees next year and 100,000 in 2017.
From the article:
Many, though not all, of the additional refugees would be Syrian, American officials have said. Others would come from strife-torn areas of Africa.
That’s questionable, considering the Daily Mail reports that out of the 213,000 refugees who are already in Europe, only 44,000 were from Syria. There are 27,000 new arrivals from Afghanistan, 17,700 from Albania and 13,900 from Iraq.
In other words, only one out of five “refugees” is from Syria. So what gives?
Many are voicing concerns that this is less about the Islamic State and more about finding a wealthy country and living off the welfare state.
“This exposes the lie peddled in some quarters that vast numbers of those reaching Europe are from Syria,” said David Davies, Tory member of Parliament for Monmouth. “Most people who are escaping the war will go to camps in Lebanon or Jordan.”
“Many of those who have opted to risk their lives to come to Europe have done so for economic reasons.”
A fellow Tory, Sir Bill Cash, echoed Davies, saying, “These figures make extremely disturbing reading. The whole argument has been made that this influx is all real refugees from Syria whereas this adds to the substantial evidence that there are a large number of economic migrants who are aiming for a better life.”
Besides the possibility that this whole “refugee crisis” is nothing more than looters looking for a new neighborhood to take advantage of, there’s also the very real danger of Islamic State bad actors, aka terrorists, embedding with the masses and finding themselves ferried across the ocean to The Great Satan itself.
In a joint statement, U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) said ISIS and other terrorist groups “have made it abundantly clear that they will use the refugee crisis to try to enter the United States. Now the Obama administration wants to bring in an additional 10,000 Syrians without a concrete and foolproof plan to ensure that terrorists won’t be able to enter the country,”
“The administration has essentially given the American people a ‘trust me.’ That isn’t good enough.”
Especially when you consider these two things. First, this:
ISIS fighters and economic migrants are able to buy Syrian identity documents that allow them to hide among refugees travelling to Europe with frightening ease, an investigation by MailOnline can reveal.
Our reporter was able to buy a Syrian passport, identity card and driving licence from a fraudster in a Turkish border town this week.
The documents, on sale for around $2,000, would help an asylum claim in Europe.
The forger who sold us the papers, said that they are being used by ISIS fanatics to travel undetected across borders into Europe hidden among tens of thousands of genuine refugees fleeing the terror and destruction.
Once in Europe they can set up sleeper cells or live freely under a new identity without facing the consequences of their brutal past actions.
As the forger chillingly put it: ‘ISIS fighters are among the people going to Europe in this way. They are going to wait for the right time to become a fighter for ISIS again.’
That’s bad enough. Now combine it with this:
The problem comes when you look at the demographic breakdowns. With only 15 percent of refugees being children, and 13 percent being women, that leaves 72 percent of these so-called refugees being men. Maybe it’s just us, but that seems suspect.
ISIS is bragging about embedding with the refugees. They can easily get the documents to blend in, get a new name, a new life, a new sleeper cell.
This wouldn’t be the first time terrorists slipped into America this way:
“Some of the 65,000 that came from Iraq actually were trying to buy stinger missiles in my hometown in Kentucky,” said U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a Republican presidential candidate, in a broadcast interview. “So we do have to be weary of some of the threat that comes from mass migration.”
Even if there isn’t one terrorist in the bunch, evidence is that they aren’t fleeing a war-torn country ravaged by the Islamic State, but may be looking for a cushy pad in a generous welfare state.
Either way amounts to the government setting the people up to have their rights violated. They’ll be victim to a terrorists knife or to the politician’s generosity.
Government’s role is to secure the rights of the people. They can’t do that if they are importing the very threat they exist to defend against or redistributing the wealth of the citizenry out of a sense of global moral obligation.
