Muslim Migrant Surge: GOP Worried about Thousands Obama is “Interviewing” in Jordan to Bring Here

The Obama administration is sending officials to Jordan to interview thousands of Muslim refugees for the U.S. refugee resettlement program. Does the Obama administration believe that jihadists hellbent on attacking America will be forthright and truthful during these interviews?

The Lebanese education minister said there are 20,000 active jihadists among the refugees in his country.

The Islamic state said in February 2015 that they would be sending half a million refugees to the West. And the Islamic state has vowed to attack the US and Europe.

Why is Obama bringing a jihad army to America?

The GOP better do more than worry.

“GOP worried about ‘surge’ of Syrian refugee interviews,” By Jordain Carney, The Hill, February 12, 2016:

Senate Republicans are raising concerns that the Obama administration is preparing to interview a “surge” of Syrian refugees, as part of the vetting process to potentially allow some to be admitted into the United States.

A handful of Senate Republicans said Friday that the Judiciary Committee has learned that the administration is sending officials to Jordan to interview thousands of candidates for the U.S. refugee resettlement program.

“The Administration’s refusal to suspend or even slow the pace of such refugee processing is particularly disturbing when reports abound of [Islamic State of Iraq and Syria] terrorists intentionally inserting themselves into the Syrian refugee stream,” the senators wrote in a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry.

The senators added that according to what the committee has been told, the administration is sending between 200-300 officials to Jordan for at least 45 days.

The lawmakers say they are concerned that the move, referred to as the “MARKA surge,” is being used to quicken the pace of refugee vetting, which on average takes two years to complete.

The senators are asking Kerry and Johnson for a range of details on the trip, including how many employees will be sent to Jordan, when they will travel to Jordan and how long they will be there, how many refugees will be processed and approximately how much the trip will cost.

The administration’s plan to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees has earned fierce pushback from congressional Republicans. They argue that members of terrorist groups can use the program to sneak into the United States and carry out attacks similar to those in Paris late last year.

While Democrats blocked the Senate from taking up legislation to crack down on the acceptance of Syrian and Iraqi refugees, Republicans have continued to push the administration to temporarily halt the resettlement program until the vetting process can be strengthened to ensure refugees aren’t a national security threat.

The letter, which was released Friday, was spearheaded by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who chairs the Judiciary Committee. Republican Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Mike Lee (Utah), David Perdue (Ga.), Jeff Sessions (Ala.), Thom Tillis (N.C.) and David Vitter (La.), who are all members of the committee, signed onto the letter.

  • ubik8

    Christians have no chance to get to America despite they are most persecuted but muslim who are safe are imported freely . 20 000 with the family reunion program everyone brings 5 more this 5 more brings another five and after 6-7 years you have got million muslim more. With this policy you gonna have 50 000 000 muslims in America by 2050 . They breed like rabbits sucking your welfare system one housband have 3-4 wife and 3-4 five kids on each wife. Normal American have 2-3 kids so in 50 -60 years 60% all children in age 5-10 will be muslim. America will be a muslin country within 4 generations.

  • Starlight109

    Of course the DOS won’t even consider polygraphing these jihadists in disguise. It would be called “racist”.

    • roger

      Yes, unthinkable for a mere Kaffir to doubt the word of a preferred minority person who is also the of the preferred religious denomination.

      • freebird4533@yahoo.com

        ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION,

        • roger

          True enough, but a judge in Germany has made a determination in a hate speech trial that Islam is a race.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    America is a big place, there are lots of places the infidels can flee to when islam takes over cities, might as well apply to immigrate to Canada, there won’t be as many muslims there as they do not like cold weather, after a year, they will all be joining the umma in the U.S.

    • Ann Brown

      They’re there too

      • Mahou Shoujo

        In small groups, they are much more tolerable. When they get big enough to for ghettos and an anti-social structure, like the ones they either fled or escaped from, the trouble starts. There should never be more than 000.3% of muslims in any area.

        • Tatonka

          There should be 0.00000 % mooslims in the entire world.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            That would be ideal.

        • Ann Brown

          Give it time, they will grow here too as in Canada. Just like cancer, it must be irradiated when first detected.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            True, it is necessary that muslim population does not reach a critical mass when using democracy, shari’a can destroy the democratic tolerance that allowed it to exist within it. It i very important to remember this quote. “a leading theologian in Iran defended a recent stoning sentence simply by reminding his audience that “Democracy, freedom, and human rights have no place in Islam”. They mean it, muslims follow the letter of the law, blindly.

          • freebird4533@yahoo.com

            Muslims are scum, I would give shelter to a pit bull

          • Mahou Shoujo

            My daughter has a pit bull, it is nice, friendly, much better company than some foaming at the mouth muslim (police beat upon him) screaming “all-is-fubar” carrying on like a rabid islamist.

        • wilypagan

          There should never be any Muslims in any Western country, period. Whatever “gifts” they bring are greatly outweighed by the risk to our cultures and our freedoms.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Gifts? the only gifts islam gives is violence, hatred, social diseases and unchaste goats. islam takes, it does not give. All that is required for evidence is the muslim colonization of europe, they demand, steal, not infrequently wasting that which they have been given, or stolen. Notice that muslims are always demanding others give them material goods, as islam thinks it is entitled to tax infidels for the privilege of not being muslims. There is no such thing as a muslim economy, every islamic nation relies on international welfare, even saudi arabia gets some. “According to our research engine:
            The U.S. Government gave a total of $1,472,410 to Saudi Arabia in 2012”.

          Im so mad I want to scream!

    • lee

      The only solution to Obama is the 2nd amendment.

      • wilypagan

        The only solution to Obama is the election in November.

    • sony_dc

      I think there was some foul play here… he dies right before Obama leaves office? Hmm, something sounds fishy especially since a lot of Obama’s main cases where coming up for review like immigration, gun control, etc.

  • Ann Brown

    Obamas’ Muslim crew will be the ones “interviewing” these terrorists.

    • roger

      Three questions
      Are you a Muslim………?
      Do you want to kill non Muslims……..?
      Can you build clocks…….?
      Yes.

    The same thing happening in America as in Europe for some time now, every time clearer: Americans already had their hispanic replacement being facilitated, and now their new islamic replacement will soon be knocking at the doors.

    Obama, Merkel, all those countries and EU leaders who just keep on bending over for the islam in one way or the other, they all want to be remembered eternally in the history books for being the morally and ethnically superiour saviours of the (islamic) world, but they’re only going to be remembered as the treacherous firestarters of WW IV.

  • Nikki Carlito

    Obama is a tool of the highest order. I’d like to settle these “refugees” right next to his crib in Chicago when he leaves office.

    In my thoughts on the Syrian refugee crisis ( My incredibly superior opinion ) there should be a safe area within Syria that is protected by international troops ( not UN troops ) where infrastructure can be established to house and feed the millions of displaced people, if it cost a few billion dollars it would still be a preferable option.

    • RiverFred

      Better yet train and turn the refugees into an army to fight for their country.

  • Charles Martel

    There are camps in Jordan full of CHRISTIAN refugees. Pamela, this man is laughing in our faces. How can this be stopped. Nobody has the power to do or at least say something?

    • sony_dc

      Unfortunately, the Christians applications keeps getting denied by this admin. He won’t allow them into the US, but open his arms to the Muslims.

    • JerrySupportsIsreal

      Glen Beck is running the Nazarene project. A effort to get the Christians out of Syria. You can find it on his web site.

  • NoTreading

    NOW the GOP is worried? Bunch of hypocrites – they already left open the barn door with the omnibus.

  • Trevor Fortune

    Does the Obama administration believe that jihadists hellbent on attacking
    America will be forthright and truthful during these interviews? Well yes. How else is he going to prioritise their trip to America? Jihadists willing to murder to spread his mission to “fundamentally change America” will be on the first planes out of Jordan.

  • Dennis

    In speaking to my children and those who represent younger generations, I am afraid that we are now in an era where our youth cannot recognize the terrible fate that may await them from what frightens me: the promotion of Islamic Jihad. When I express my concerns to those younger people, I invariably get accused of being a bigot, racist, fascist, and a person who no longer appreciates the “Bill of Rights” as outlined in our constitution which grants freedom and liberty to all races, nationalities and religions here in America. They point out to me that many of their friends are peace loving and good neighborly Muslims. They reject my comments that inviting them here would be tantamount to inviting the Nazi’s here in the 1930 thru 1940’s. They seem unafraid of what this culture intends. I remind them that being an American requires courage, and that the Constitution that protects them from tyranny, must be affirmatively protected, for failure to stand up for themselves will result in a loss of their freedom; but I am very much afraid that my concerns are falling on “deaf ears.” Now our government seems to be intending to invite this culture into this country at a time that it has become impossible to vet them. Islam has been fighting a war against the non-Muslim world for over 1400 years, and now they are able to create more destruction then ever before. Although I recognize that many of their culture are not violent in their belief system, many of these people do not represent the refugees and immigrants of the past, all of whom came here with major expectations of grabbing a piece of the American Dream, and all of whom assimilated into the American Way and became conscientious citizens of this great country. They never allowed their belief system to influence them in any negative way as to what was expected of them to be an American. They fought the battles needed to keep this country safe and to provide for their children the freedom that our laws provided. I cannot understand why the younger generations seem to be out of touch with what being an American is all about. Have we spoiled them? Is it too late to make them understand? Must we await another attack by the terrorists that will make the 9/11 event look like a minor incident. Where is this country’s leadership during a time that has become so volatile? Is it too late? I continue to fear for our youth and future generations. I hope that we begin electing those who will actively recognize what this country is facing, and take the action necessary to protect America as past generations have done.

    • Don Grantham

      Whenever you are accused of being a bigot, racist or fascist, wear those slurs as a badge of honor… because you, me and others like us are willing to bear that stigma as the cost of freedom from the tyranny of those who, in their infinite stupidity, would destroy us all. Stand tall and strong, never forget who you are.

    • Rob Porter

      Have we spoiled them? Yes, and failed to instill in them proper values based upon Judeo-Christian teachings that instill proper values rather than the airy-fairy feckless mush ideas that have been instilled in their minds by liberal mush thinking in homes, in many churches, from teachers, a rubbish media and a liar president who without challenge from cowardly academics for whom ‘truth’ is not important, says what he pleases – and gets away with it!

      That leadership is garbage speaks for itself. The president consorts with the country’s enemies in the WH, not least the Muslim Brotherhood that has openly stated it desire “to eliminate and destroy Western civilization form within”, and aligns the country with al Qaeda in Syria and Libya, yet to such treachery absolutely nothing happens from an utterly spineless opposition. (I now cheer every time I read about or see the Russians smashing America’s ‘allies’ round Aleppo and other places in Syria. I hope they get utterly crushed). The failure in Benghazi both Obama and Clinton lie about, prevent those who were there from testifying about what really happened, and the inquiry fizzles out into nothing.

      Cowardice, lack of conviction, complacency and apathy reigns. The country is rotting from within by it’s own hand and then assisted by the Islam-sympathetic Muslim president. Yes, there is reluctance to say that, but it is stupid to deduce anything else. He’s certainly not a Christians, has ridiculed it, talks total lies while whitewashing Islam, and is not moved one iota by the savage murder of thousands of Christians in Iraq and Syria. Ted Cruze and Marco Rubio have been in Congress for the last seven years, and thus during the treacherous Obama’s entire presidency, and what have they contributed toward having this disgusting president removed? And now they want to be president! Why elect such men? How would they change from mostly do nothings to men with unwavering convictions. They’ve allowed this lousy president to continue with his destructive policies. The are a few things I don’t like about Trump, a few things I do, but he has been right and was again last night when saying these politicians “are all talk”.

    Obama doesn’t have a normal brain. He has a jihadi Muslim brain. He’s hell bent on bringing Muslims jihadists here so they can work together towards the caliphate.

    • Evil Liberal

      Something they will regret.

  • Drew the Infidel

    Who can speculate that jihadists will insert themselves into the refugee stream after they have publicly announced their intention to do so? We should be establishing safe zones in the Middle East instead of importing trouble. Like George W. Bush said, “fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them over here.”

      Not unless people call and write and visit offices in general raising a stink about it. Know anybody who will even make one call to a congressperson?

        The politicians have been bought and paid for.

  • danr

    here’s an idea…the migrant family must be “sponsored” by a U.S. family (U.S. citizens) already here and established. The sponsoring family must provide housing and financial support. The sponsoring family should also be held responsible if their guest go jihad on us.
    My parents were “sponsored” when they immigrated to the US. They worked for years on a farm in Maryland before gaining citizenship and becoming proud, productive citizens of this country.

    • JerrySupportsIsreal

      You need to read Jihad Watch Daily Digest by Robert Spencer before you make such suggestions.
      Muslims from that region of the world are a different type of Muslim than those in the west. Example, a women was raped in Germany, the ripest shouted inshallah while raping the women.
      Inshallah
      = if Allah wills it. Here is another scene from the glorious new
      multicultural Europe: the rapist is invoking Allah during his rape
      because he knows that this use of Infidel women is sanctioned in Islam,
      for the Qur’an allows Muslim men to have sexual relations with the
      “captives of the right hand” (4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30).

      Their World view, morals, and values, are very different than western morals, values and world view. The best way I can describe it is by asking this question. Would you bring home a Rattle Snake to your family as a pet? If you do, I hope you have anti-venom on hand, and a good health care plan.

      My anti-venom is made by Smith and Wesson.

  • Janet

    Obama give your head a shake! Does he really believe that he can vet these refugees by asking questions? Obama and Kerry dumb and dumber!

      His words and overt actions are merely a cover for his intentional desire to over run America with moslems. It’s a form of blowing smoke is all.
