Here’s Senator Bennet last year
Today, Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Chad Wolf expressing his strong opposition to the Trump Administration’s decision to suspend refugee resettlement programs and deny asylum seekers entry to the United States during the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
“The United States cannot not use this global emergency as ammunition for anti-migrant or anti-refugee policies, or use it as an excuse to shut the door on those fleeing war or persecution,” wrote Bennet.
Here’s Benet on President Trump’s immigration ban.
Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet, with a bicameral group of colleagues, this week introduced legislation to repeal the President’s existing executive order blocking travel from majority Muslim countries and prevent another baseless, discriminatory travel ban from happening again.
Here’s Benet fighting for more Syrian refugees.
President Trump’s poorly drawn and implemented executive order blocking refugees from the United States sacrifices fundamental American values and does not make us safer.
Out of a population of 22 million, almost 5 million Syrians have fled to neighboring countries, some to Europe, and have registered as refugees. More than half of those displaced are children…
This process includes repeated biometric checks, several layers of biographical and background screening, health checks, and interviews. Syrian refugees, in particular, receive enhanced scrutiny through an additional security risk review by specially-trained officers.
Here’s Senator Benet blaming guns and the government after a Syrian Muslim immigrant shot a bunch of people.
Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet on Wednesday called on the Senate to act in the wake of a mass shooting at a supermarket in his state, asserting in an impassioned speech from the chamber floor that his colleagues have a moral obligation to a generation of young Americans who have lived through dozens of such attacks.
“Boulder will heal but this scar will always be there — my daughter’s generation will always bear the burden of a national government that did nothing to protect them. They and the children that I used to work for at the Denver Public Schools, they carry a burden that we didn’t carry,” the Colorado Democrat said, referencing his previous work as superintendent of the school district.
Bennet might want to look in a mirror. Ahmad Al-Issa shouldn’t have been in America. If Bennet really wants to keep his daughter’s generation safe, he can start by reversing his support for bringing terrorists to America.
