Dept. Of Homeland Security? Secretary Jeh Johnson Says Administration Will Carefully Vet Syrian Refugees…

Coming to America; soon to arrive in a city near you!  However, not to worry, Secretary Jeh Johnson says the Obama administration will vet them “carefully”.

(Saint Louis) Thousands of Syrian refugees eventually bound for the U.S. will be screened “carefully” to ensure that none of them are terrorists, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Wednesday.

During a keynote speech at the Missouri college where Winston Churchill made his famous “Iron Curtain” speech seven decades ago, Johnson offered no clarity on how quickly the vetting of the 10,000 refugees from the war-torn country that the U.S. plans to accept during the coming year will be done, or whether it can be expedited.

“It’s something we’re evaluating right now,” Johnson said during the question-and-answer portion session after his remarks at Westminster College, a 2,000-student private school.

When asked directly by a reporter about whether the screenings will be expedited, Johnson said, “We want to try to accomplish the vetting and resettlement in a certain time frame.” He didn’t elaborate.

Johnson’s assurances come amid concerns that extremists from the Islamic State could blend in with the asylum seekers and circumvent the security checks.

The United States is making plans to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees in the coming budget year, a significant increase from the 1,500 people who have been cleared to resettle. But these would be people already waiting resettlement clearance, not any of the more than 464,000 refugees that have flooded into Europe in recent months.

Some major U.S. cities are rolling out the welcome mat. Last week, the mayor of St. Louis — already home to thousands of Bosnians — said that accepting any displaced Syrians “is the right thing to do,” even though it’s unclear how many will land there. (read more)

      I expect our new Syrian buddies will get exactly the same kind of hard-hitting scrutiny: “Sir, I am a Muslim.” “Okay, welcome! Next!”

      And speaking of the Tsarnaevs, Boston’s own Mayor, Maaaaaahhty Walsh, has already announced that Beantown will take some of the refugees. People — especially Democrat people — never learn.

    This is complete and udder BS. We have no way to “vet” these refugees. Considering that they have are vetted by the UN-not us and put in a pipeline to come here, there are now 17,000 in line ready to get on a plane to come here. There is very little “vetting” going on after the UN signs them up. We know nothing about these people and they are trying to sell us the kool aid.
    It’s pure propaganda. The UN office of High Commissioner/UNOHC selects these folks from their refugee camps where no Christians refugees are because the Musloids in these camps have terrorized them out.
    The States that are targeted for these ‘resettlements” out of the 19 that are getting 20% of them, 14 are red states.
    This is all part of O Hussein fundamental change of America.

      Brian Babin has a bill in Congress-call, write and pester your representatives and shae this information with as many people as you can.
      Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX): “We are crazy to be inviting the problems of the Middle East into the United States”
      by Ann Corcoran

      Editor: See our first post on Rep. Brian Babin’s initial shot-across-the-bow of the heretofore sacrosanct Refugee Admissions Program of the UN/US State Department. We are happy to report that 9 other brave Members of the House have joined his legislative initiative to halt the program until there has been a cost accounting done of the program.

      Babin: Small towns and little communities are being inundated!
      Babin talks to Breitbart (hat tip: Richard Falkner via twitter):
      The U.S. must learn the costs and national security risks of the refugee resettlement program before it admits any more refugees including Syrian refugees, Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) says.
      In an interview with Breitbart News, Babin expressed his adamant opposition to President Obama’s recent call to admit at least 10,000 Syrian refugees in the U.S. next year.
      “This refugee crisis was caused largely by [Obama’s] inept foreign policy,” Babin said.
      [….]
      “We are crazy to be inviting the problems of the Middle East into the United States.
      [….]
      Beyond the national security implications, Babin has been sounding the alarm about the fiscal costs associated with the refugee program, which he notes has resettled about 500,000 refugees since Obama took office. Refugees in the U.S. are immediately eligible for welfare and tend to use it at high levels.
      “We have to find out just exactly what this is costing us.” he said, pointing out American workers’ current difficulties and national debt.
      In July Babin introduced legislation to immediately suspend the refugee resettlement program until the Government Accountability Office (GAO) conducts a thorough audit of its costs on federal, state and local governments. He is currently collecting co-sponsors for that bill.
      Speaking to Breitbart News, the freshman congressman highlighted the high levels of welfare use among refugees, and particularly refugees from the Middle East, noting that the available federal data does not account for the costs to local communities.
      We are happy to report that right now, Mr.Babin has nine co-sponsors!
      Where are you Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Subcommittee Chairman Trey Gowdy?
      By the way, Rep. Pete Sessions, a co-sponsor is House Rules Committee Chairman!

      Time to really step it up especially as it looks like the Obama Administration is going to sock us with tens of thousands of refugees from the Middle East—more than usual—starting two weeks from today as the new fiscal year begins!

    I live in st louis. I wish mayor slay would wise up. The vetting of the syrians will not work. The bosnians have been here almost 20 years now. In the dutchtown area near bevo mill most of the stores and businesses have bosnian language names, ads, signage. There is no english. Multiple muslim bosnians that were so called vetted, have been caught providing financial support to terrorist organizations.

    It is also mainly the arab ran corner stores that participate in fraud like accepting foodstamps for cigs, booze, blunts, even cell phone minute cards. They do this by using old registers that dont scan bar codes and dont have a computerized point of sale mechanism. Rather, they manually enter the price and tax percentage. There are no x y or z report functions to track their sales either.

    Oh, and while he’s filling America up with MUSLIMS, he’s openly sending Christian refugees who have come here for asylum, back into the war torn mess. Bare Naked ISLAM, just had an article on the fact that 12 Christians from Iraq fleeing from ISIS were refused asylum and sent back by Obama’s policies in the Immigration Department. Yeah, 12 Christians or 20 or any Christians aren’t allowed to come here, not under Obama! Maybe we should give them the U.N.

These people have already made it clear that they are Muslim by not accepting food from Christian charity. Why not send the Muslims to Saudi Arabia, our Muslim ally in the middle east? Why are Muslim Nations rolling out the welcome mat?
