Hillary Clinton’s debate seat will be hot tonight thanks to this article where she calls on the United States to accept an additional 65,000 Syrian refugees in addition to the 10,000 Syrian refugees the US had already committed to. In a September interview with John Dickerson, the host of CBS’s Face the Nation, Mrs. Clinton said “You know, look, we’re facing the worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II and I think the United States has to do more and I would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000 and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people we would take in, looking to really emphasis some of those who are most vulnerable.”
Considering the fact that there isn’t a vetting process for these ‘refugees’ but that there is a legitimate question about whether ISIS is using the refugee crisis to enter western nations, Mrs. Clinton should get peppered with questions about how wise it is to bring in tens of thousands of unvetted refugees after a terrorists attack.
If anything, the Paris terrorist attack, which ISIS has taken credit for, should cause President Obama to put a moratorium on Syrian refugees in place ASAP.
Let’s notice that Mrs. Clinton said that the US should “move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000” and to “begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people we would take in.” That’s insanity. Why wouldn’t the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department stop the transfer of people who are allegedly Syrians and allegedly refugees to the United States?
It isn’t like the Assad government is paying attention to who’s coming from Syria. Simply put, it isn’t possible to put a system in place to verify that the people we’re accepting as refugees are refugees. The fact that the overwhelming majority of these refugees are young males should raise tons of red flags with a competent administration. Then again, this administration hasn’t been mistaken as a competent administration on national security in a long, long time.
With the Paris terrorist attack still fresh in the public’s minds, the public will want to know which candidates take the threat of Islamic jihadists seriously and which don’t. They should also insist that Mrs. Clinton explain why she’d want to import 75,000 people that claim to be refugees from one of the world’s hot spots without the ability to verify the fact that they’re refugees.
During Mrs. Clinton’s interview with Dickerson, she sounded magnanimous, noting that “we’re facing the worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II” before giving a thought about putting “into place the mechanisms for vetting” the alleged refugees. That’s the definition of recklessness. Mrs. Clinton didn’t mention vetting the refugees until the end, as though it was an afterthought to her.
