Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has repeatedly called for a temporary halt to bringing in Syrian refugees and refugees from other countries that have ties to terrorist groups. This comes in the wake of radical Islamic terrorist attacks being carried out across the country.
Obama on the other hand continues to think it is a good thing to continue to bring refugees to U.S. soil. According to the Daily Caller, Obama is planning to bring over 110,000 refugees in the next year alone.
The real problem lies in the vetting process of these refugees. The Obama administration says that they can properly vet the refugees. As a stark contrast to the administration’s claims, one of the San Bernardino terrorists passed the Department of Homeland Security’s counterterrorism vetting process.
The FBI knew about the New York terrorist two years ago and also had the Orlando terrorist was on a terrorist watch list but was inexplicably removed from the list prior to carrying out his attack. That should not convince anyone that the government is capable of carrying out accurate vetting of 110,000 additional refugees.
On Wednesday, U.S. Department of State Spokesman John Kirby dropped a major bombshell when he revealed that ISIS terrorists have in fact tried to pose as refugees in order to enter the U.S. and carry out their attacks.
“I wouldn’t debate the fact that there’s the potential for ISIS terrorists to try to insert themselves,” Kirby said. “And we’ve seen that in some of the refugee camps in Jordan and in Turkey, where they try to insert themselves into the population.”
It seems that Trump was right all along.
