Obama Considers Resettling Tens of Thousands Syrian Refugees in the US


Syrian rebels flash 'victory signs' in Aleppo

Sure most people just see refugees, but Democrats see voters. A number of the refugees will be Christian, but somehow I think Obama isn’t all that interested in Christian refugees.

Taking in Muslim refugees from Muslim civil wars in Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere has largely been a disaster. The original World Trade Center bombing happened in part because the United States was willing to host Egyptian Islamists who would have been arrested in their own country. And who exactly will be taking in now?

If the Muslim Brotherhood Jihadists lose in Syria, their leaders will flee to Europe and America where they will suborn, undermine and plan acts of terror.

Two years into a civil war that shows no signs of ending, the Obama administration is considering resettling refugees who have fled Syria, part of an international effort that could bring thousands of Syrians to American cities and towns.

A resettlement plan under discussion in Washington and other capitals is aimed at relieving pressure on Middle Eastern countries straining to support 1.6 million refugees, as well as assisting hard-hit Syrian families.

The State Department is “ready to consider the idea,” an official from the department said, if the administration receives a formal request from the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees, which is the usual procedure.

The United States usually accepts about half the refugees that the U.N. agency proposes for resettlement. California has historically taken the largest share, but Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia are also popular destinations.

While this is supposed to ease the burden on Jordan, the Jordanians aren’t too enthusiastic about Obama creating a massive immigration magnet that leads through Jordan to America.

Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon, which have absorbed the bulk of the refugees, worry that a resettlement plan could actually widen the flood if Syrians see a chance for a better life in North America, Europe or Australia.

And how big are we going to get here?

Some Middle Eastern officials worry they may get stuck housing and feeding refugees for months or years while the West does the vetting, leading to an even longer logjam and more domestic political turmoil.

“Their view is that unless this involves big numbers, it’s not worth doing,” said a European official, who declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the subject. “You need to be talking about tens of thousands of people.”

Sure why not. What’s the worst that could happen? Oh right. Importing fighters from a violent religious war.

Western officials try to discourage poor foreigners who are seeking a more comfortable life or business opportunities in the West. They say resettlement is only for those who can’t go home, and seek to dispel notions that an easy life awaits.

According to a State Department publication aimed at refugees, “Cars are not provided…. Most Americans value self-reliance and hard work. They expect newcomers to find jobs as soon as possible and to take care of themselves and their families.”

And then everyone at the State Department had a good laugh about that.

    With millions of illegal Mexicans, tens of thousands of Syrians, Somalis, Iraqis, Afghanis, and possibly even Yemanis and Libyans and Chechynans, what could possibly go wrong — for the Democrats? Not much.

    • Naresh Krishnamoorti

      There will inevitably be at least a few Democrats who will die in the crossfire.

        Bush brought in more than 100,000 refugees from Iraq during his run…

  • 1Indioviejo1

    How do we get so many treasonous people into government? What have we done to deserve such hatred from our bureaucrats? Can’t they see the problems Muslim have created in every society they have tarnished? I believe we are pushing the nation into violence, and I sincerely hope that the people creating the problems pay the heaviest price.

    Your Silence to when you have no Constitution…The love of our country as our ammunition.As arrogant men tear up our Constitution And from every direction..When it’s time to stand upright why do we falter Like placing our freedom on the sacrificial altar .we are choking on our Blood as Government takes the Love of our country Stop Government from sucking the life out of our Constitution ..NSA,IRS,Benghazi ,Freedom of Speech or that Obama signing a Treaty with the U.N. to our Gun Rights

  • Zombee

    Why not settle them on the European continent. America doesn’t need anymore middle eastern immigrants. The Boston bombing is proof that we are incapable of monitoring Islamic immigrants.

    • chan chan

      There are millions more in europe than in the USA. Around 20m, in fact.

      No thanks.

  • bobwhite1935

    If the illegals aliens & the muslims are brought here you can bet that will be the end of the Republican party then our only hope is the Tea Party to defend our rights, the Republicans in Congress now will bow to the new dictator democrat party. The no nothing voters may realize what is happening & will join us even the blacks may wake up too also the Mexicans after all most are Christians.

    • knowshistory

      the republican party is already irrelevant. when they are out of power, they do nothing. when they are in power, they behave like democrats. george w religion of peace bush allowed 8 long painful years of unrestricted illegal immigration. what would a democrat have done? the same. vote republican, you will be betrayed. vote democrat, and you get the evil you voted for. either way, what you get is evil.

        I agree with you, didn’t the Somalians come under Bush.

      • beezwaxing

        Their last hope is in the House of Representatives. If the amnesty bill passes there, this Republic is finished.

    And people still wonder why California is so messed up and not the place it used to be.

  • soundnfury

    “And they lived happily ever after…” Sounds like a fairy tale in the making.

    If Obama wants to take in Syrian refugees, then he should take in all Syrian refugees, and that means Christians too. It would be so refreshing to have a huge wave of Christian immigrants come to America for a change, and having them here might help us remember who we really are and to restore the greatness that we have lost in recent years.

    • MarilynA

      The refugee accepted should be all Christian. Thetya re the people who are being genocided by Obama’s Muslim brothers.

    • knowshistory

      if you think that dear leader is going to invite oppressed christians of syria to invade our country, you havent been paying attention.

  • 7loubro_4

    Not “no” but HECK NO. There is hardly any room left for Natural Born Citizens anymore. Let’s try America for Americans for about 200 more years….let real immigrants apply as the rules once were.

  • CowboyUp

    We’ve got lots of resettled Bosnians in my town.

    • knowshistory

      how is that working out for you?

      • CowboyUp

        Not too bad, they’re very clannish, mostly keeping to themselves, and they seem a little surly, but not overtly rude. They opened their own cafes, markets, and orthodox churches. They dress a little funny, that’s usually how I spot them. Many seem to have an aversion to shampoo, but they’re catching on.

  • MarilynA

    According to my 1953 world Book Encyclopedia, in 1953 China’s population was 500 million people. Today is 1.5 billion, and people aren’t beating down the doors to get into China. The US population in now about 340 million, and that is just those legally counted. Bill Clinton brought in over 1 million Somali Muslim “refugees” during the 1990s. He relocated them in (200,000) Atlanta, (200,000) in Dearborn Mich, Memphis TN and other large cities with large black populations. Note that these are the areas where most of our problems are. The water table in our Midwestern “breadbasket” section is now dangerously low. Several years ago is was reported that China, while trying to emulate US irrigation farming methods, had drained the water table of vast areas in Western China, turning the whole area into a dessert. The real question is…Do we want our country turned into another Mexico, Middle East , or African country. The immigration quota for most European countries is 1 person per year. Go figure. It’s time for Congress to pass laws preventing any more Muslims from emigrating into this country. To hell with political Correctness and discrimination regs. These people aren’t US citizens. Surely Congress has the authority to regulate what non citizens can do or not do in this country.

    I am sure that there are some fine people in Syria, and I would even be glad to have them into my home. But I don’t trust Obama; He is a traitor and I know that he is looking for a good way to bring Al-Qaeda into America. You can tell by the media talking points that they are trying to bring Al-Qaeda into America next. Obama has been financially supporting and arming Al-Qaeda.

      A lot of the refugees are Eastern Orthodox but they are low skilled and have injuries hard to get jobs which means more of a welfare group. If they didn’t have those liabilities I would support them more since the Eastern Orthodox knocks the evangelical and Catholic influence just a little, I like Eastern Orthodoxy myself. But yes, they would caused more people on the dole why doesn’t Turkey not go to Sweden and so forth, the Eastern Orthodox would caused less problems for them than Muslims.

      • Brian Williams

        I would welcome the Eastern Orthodox and the Muslim refugees no matter how much of a burden. I figure that they just want to live. I just know Obama. I know that he’s running Al_Qaeda, and wants to use them to destabilize America, just as he has in Libya and Syria. Instead of the NSA spying on regular Americans they could be used to vet the refugees. Thanks Cynthia for your information!

  • ziggy zoggy

    The multiple scandals over the criminal acts of Obama haven’t been able to prevent all the other schemes his politburo and moles have in place. There will be more revealed everyday, and FAR more that will go unnoticed.
    Maybe if we write enough angry letters the bad man will go away.

  • Quiet_Righty

    Madness.

  • herb benty

    The freedom loving Republican in me says, God Bless the poor souls, bring em! The realist democrat- observer says, It’s just another permanent voter aquisition by the Leftist Democrats and there is Sure to be Islamic Fanatics in the mix, because according to the MSM, and Obama… there is no such thing!

  • kja328

    NO! Not allowed!

  • knowshistory

    what can go wrong for the democrats? the problem with democrats is they do not recognize that there is a day after tomorrow. if democrats can conspire to import a million violent hate filled muslims who will vote for democrats once, it doesnt matter to them that their new found citizens will vote for al qaida thereafter. those new citizens hate democrats as much as they hate the people democrats hate, maybe more. when the democrats finally see the destruction they have accomplished, it will be too late. muslims are equal opportunity genocidists. democrats somehow think they will like that.

  • knowshistory

    we have elections to determine which party will betray us. the result is the same. if you prefer an evil multiculti that hates america to occupy a position of power and invite people who hate us to invade and occupy our country, then you are a democratic voter. if you prefer to vote for some slick lying creep who promises to promote your interests and the best interests of your country, then when elected will join in with the america haters to destroy our country, then you are a republican voter. either way, you get your homeland occupied by foreigners who are eager to replace you, and make you a refugee in your own country.

  • pam

    Relocate them to somewhere within the tornado alley. That ought to even things up just a bit!

  • chrism12743

    Just what we need, more jihadist terrorists!!! Tell me this demagogue in the white house isn’t doing his level best to destroy our nation!

  • Guy_in_Kingston

    Thousands of terrorists moving in…LOL

  • Guy_in_Kingston

    Just think…..with America importing a million+ Muslims a year soon the gays will be back in the closet, and this time fearing for their lives.

  • carolskey

    What the short-sighted democrat fails to understand is that these new welfare recipients in large numbers
    are destroying THEIR America. The voting “battle” may be won with
    their immigration, but the “war” for keeping America great will be lost!
