Obama, Leahy and Kerry Make it Easier for Terrorist Supporters to Enter US

tsa muslim burqa

We can’t keep the terrorists out. That would be Islamophobic.

The Obama administration has unilaterally eased restrictions on asylum seekers with loose or incidental ties to terror and insurgent groups, in a move one senator called “deeply alarming.”

The change, approved by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry, was announced Wednesday in the Federal Register. It would allow some individuals who provided “limited material support” to terror groups to be considered for entry into the U.S.

Supporters of the change, including Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., argued that the current ban on anyone who has ever aided terrorists has unfairly blocked thousands of refugees.

“The existing interpretation was so broad as to be unworkable,” Leahy said in a statement. “It resulted in deserving refugees and asylees being barred from the United States for actions so tangential and minimal that no rational person would consider them supporters of terrorist activities.”

And if one of these deserving refugees murders Americans, we know where to send that bill.

Though the change would apply to those who helped non-designated terror groups, Sessions noted that Al Qaeda, for example, was not officially designated as a foreign terror organization until 1999.

And Obama Inc. has dragged its feet on designating Al Qaeda affiliates and genuinely genocidal groups such as Boko Haram FTO’s.

“In light of these and other facts, it is thus deeply alarming that the Obama administration would move unilaterally to relax admissions standards for asylum seekers and potentially numerous other applicants for admission who have possible connections to insurgent or terrorist groups,” Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said in a statement on Thursday. “We need to tighten security standards for asylum, not relax them even further.”

Sessions also complained that the administration was, on its own, altering the Immigration and Nationality Act. “What is the point of Congress passing a law if the administration abuses its ‘discretion’ to say that law simply no longer applies?” he said.

This is another reason why amnesty in any form and with any restrictions is unacceptable. Obama Inc. just doesn’t follow the law.

      Obama and his clown crew are doing everything they can to prove you wrong.

    Come on. We need more such “Dreamers” skilled in such things as smuggling explosives or sheltering terrorists in our country. These are the kinds of jobs that Americans just won’t do.

      How about smuggling cars?

      In Iraq many cars were stolen and smuggled across the border to Saudi Arabia for sale. It funded the insurgents.

      One group of smugglers use to do everything. They car jacked people, killed them took their car and other valuables.

      Just think those people can immigrate to America thanks to Obama.

    There are already thousands of willing Jihadists in every western nation. The foolishness of letting in hoards of Muslims, let alone those with loose connections with terrorist organizations is absolute madness. Have all of our elected leaders lost their minds? Especially in the US, which was deliberately targeted my Muslims, the door should have closed to all adherents of the Religion of Death on September 12, 2001.

      To answer your question “Have all of our elected leaders lost their minds?” I think the answer is in and it’s “Yes.” Not to mention their will.

    More dead bodies need to be shown on TV and in the press.

    Presstitutes were all too happy to show starving people in Somalia.they showed 1/2 naked kids with distended bellies in refugee camps with flies walking around their eyes and mouth.

    If they can show that then they can show what the dead bodies when Boko Haram bombs a Christian church in Nigeria. Evey bombing needs to have the
    pictures shown on the nightly news and on the front page.

    Then the President Obama can explain why he dragged his feet in listing Boko Haram (November 13, 2013)as a terrorist organization.

    It has been bombing since May 20011 and it take s the Obama administration over 2 years to list it as a terror organization.

    Obama is soft on Muslim terrorists. why did it take 2 years and 6 months to designate Boko Haram a terrorist organization?

    Is Obama a slow learner?

    “Obama Inc. just doesn’t follow the law.” And it never will. We should forget trying to blow the whisle on them (since only the “choir” ever hears that whistle) and figure out how to get our spineless Republicans and RINO’s to begin impeachment proceedings against Obama.

    yet another reason to impeach the charming individual currently disgracing the White House.

    One of the President’s first duties is to protect the people of the United States. Permitting people to immigrate to this country who have even a tangential relationship to terrorists organization both declared and undeclared is ludicrous. Furthermore, violating the laws of this country to allow them entry is illegal. This should be an impeachable offense as he has swore to uphold the laws of this country which neither he nor the Justice Dept. have been doing.

    In addition, by including members of a Muslim Brotherhood linked group in the government, particularly Homeland Security, Obama has aided and abetted the enemy which constitutes treason. Again, this is an impeachable offense.

    President Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim manque (as well as a twenty-year member of the church of the
    Rev. Jeremiah Wright, anti-white, anti-semitic. He has close connections to the Muslim Brotherhood – his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had as her close aide, Huma Abedin, whose family is Muslim Brotherhood and Sisterhood, which could not have happened it Obama wasn’t supporting the Muslim Brotherhood. A half-brother from Kenya is a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama still supports Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, ousted as they are in Egypt.
    Obama has ordered that all references to jihad (Muslim) be abolished from FBI, etc. manuals. He ordered that the murderous attack by Major Nidal Hassan, shouting “Allahu Akbar” be called “workplace violence,” an Orwellian replacement of “jihad.” No doubt he will rename the Boston Marathon massacre by the two Muslim Chechens as something other than Muslim jihad. What he makes of the Russian problems with the Chechen (Muslim) terrorists I do not know.
