Obama’s ‘Backroom’ Refugee Deal Gives OK to Australia Rejects From Terror Spots

Obama, John Kerry
44

President Obama and his top administrative staffers, in what’s being described as an unprecedented move, have agreed to allow 2,465 refugees from terrorism hotspots into the United States, after Australia rejected them.

What’s more, Obama’s State Department is granting the refugees classified status, so even Congress can’t get details on their backgrounds.

Australia has taken many refugees, but roughly 2,500 who've been turned away for security reasons will now get a chance to come to America, thanks to President Obama and what's being described as his personal "backroom" wheeling and dealing.
Australia has taken many refugees, but roughly 2,500 who’ve been turned away for security reasons will now get a chance to come to America, thanks to President Obama and what’s being described as his personal “backroom” wheeling and dealing.

Fox News has the story:

“Nearly 2,500 refugees from terrorism hotspots around the world are bound for the U.S. after being rejected by Australia, but not even top lawmakers can get answers about who they are.

“In an unprecedented move, the U.S. State Department has classified details on refugees to be resettled in America via a secret deal made with Australia. The bi-lateral agreement, which Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called a ‘one-off,’ involves 2,465 people currently being held in Papua New Guinea and Nauru who will now be transferred onto U.S. soil.”

Center for Immigration Studies fellow Don Barnett described the deal as frightening.

“This is a backroom deal, wheeling and dealing with another country’s refugee problem,” he said, in Fox News. “I don’t believe for a moment it’s a one-time deal.”

Congressional members are buzzing about the news as well.

Key lawmakers, including Sen. Chuck Grassley and Rep. Bob Goodlatte, sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry to express alarm.

“This situation,” they wrote, “is concerning for many reasons,” not the least of which is that “your departments negotiated an international agreement regarding refugees without consulting or notifying Congress.”

U.S. Customs and Immigration Services officials are due to vet the refugees starting in January, at a location in the Pacific Islands.

In the meanwhile, congressional attempts to get information about the refugees have fallen flat.

From Fox News:

“When staffers probed the number of individuals being considered for resettlement, they were told it was ‘classified,’ even though refugee admissions are traditionally public. Officials, however, did confirm countries of origin to be Iran, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq and Sudan, as well as some deemed ‘stateless.’

“Iran, Sudan and Syria are the three countries on the U.S. current State Sponsors of Terrorism list. But Barnett said the ‘stateless’ category is most worrisome.

“These could be Burmese Muslims, who have posed assimilation issues for every nation which has taken them,’ said Barnett. ‘It’s a dangerous precedent which says, ‘We’ll take any ethnic group with which you don’t get along.'”

Grassley and Goodlatte also asked in their letter for the reasons Australia turned down these particular refugees.

But so far: No answers.

The White House recently boosted the number of refugees that America would accept between October 2016 and October 2017 to 110,000, up from 85,000.

      and to kick out the ones that got through with no identification at all… Also, the 2 somali’s who committed jihad, all their family needs to have their refugee/citizenship rescinded and then deported back to Somalia… Thats is the one thing all these economic migrants (not bloody refugees) are the most afraid of, that they’ll lose their ‘free stuff” and be shipped back to the shitholes they came from

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      The refugees identities are being kept secret, chances are Trump won’t ever be able to figure out who they are by the time he takes office.

  • Sam Interi

    Hope Rudy Giuliana will be available for a special
    prosecutor’s position.

    1. Obama & the State Department make a back room deal
    with Australia.

    2. Hate letters arrive at Mosques nationwide (to be
    investigated by The Bureau of ATF&E no less).

    3. Democrats will claim “see what the Republicans are
    doing this country” when the s hits the fan.

    4. NO! See what the Democrats HAVE done to our country.

    During the republican primary campaign, Trump vehemently insisted that he was going to be “neutral” on the conflict between Israel and the so-called ‘palestinians’!
    .
    But after a considerable (and understandable) backlash, Trump immediately switched to BEING ‘pro-Israel’ … and even repeatedly promised that, if elected, he would move the U.S. Embassy to Israel’s capital (i.e., Jerusalem).
    .
    But now that the primary is over, President-Elect Trump has now made anti-Israel (and pro-‘palestinian’) Mattis his Defense Secretary! Mattis has expressed his false, and utterly absurd, assumption that there will either be an apartheid Jewish state or a non-Jewish state.
    .
    Mattis also ‘profusely’ praised anti-Israel (and anti-Semite) John Kerry’s insistence that Israel agree to (in effect) commit national suicide … for what both of them (and other anti-Semites) refer to as a two-state ‘solution’ … thereby cutting the Jewish nation into indefensible bits and pieces … in a sea of blood-thirsty terrorists that are totally and unswervingly intent on murdering all Christians and Jews … if only given half a chance!
    .
    Well … now that he’s President-Elect Trump, he’s now back to being so-called “neutral”! In other words, this is one time Trump won’t have to go back on his word regarding whether or not to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem … since, if things go the way Defense Secretary Mattis wants it to go, then there will be no Jewish nation … or Jewish capital of Jerusalem … to move the U.S. Embassy to! Right?

      You could not be more wrong or inadequately educated on this man. Mad Dog is no friend to islam and is biased in favor of Israel. He might even turn out to be the most pro-Israel Sec of Defense in history.

      Lazar Berman cherry picked quotes for the article you linked. Always consider your sources.

      • Craig

        Every time I see any “anti-Israel” talk concerning Mattis, it is from the left. More made up news to freak out the simple-minded. The left, anti-American media are very well steeped in the traditions of their patron saint, herr geoebbels.

        • G03Maxine

          That may or may not be the case … and even so, I am inclined to believe that, for the most part, it is the case. But suffice it to say that I am nevertheless not one of those … ‘from the left’ … by any stretch of the imagination! Just saying!
          .

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        Your article doesn’t support your claims. The ZOA has clearly come out against Mattis for the reasons already outlined.

        • I’myourhuckleberry

          Iz, having a few critical comments about the perception of Israel on the world stage vs. being overtly anti-Israel is a very wide divide. I think you’ll find, as you learn more about Mad Dog, that he is very supportive of Israel, recognizes their potential to be at the forefront of the fight against islam and the level of defense coordination will only strengthen the bond between the United States and it’s greatest ally. Most recently, Mattis commented that responding to “political islam” is the main security issue facing America. He has also called the iranian regime as “the single most enduring threat to stability and peace in the Middle East.” The Trump Cabinet is shaping up to be one of the most anti-islam/pro-Israel, a complete 180° turn away from obozo and his muzzie bro’hood cronies.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Anyone who supports the two-state solution lie isn’t a friend to Israel. Anyone who accuses Israel of being an apartheid state is an enemy of Israel. Mattis served under the 0mahdi.

          • G03Maxine

            .
            Now I hope and pray that we are both wrong on this; but so far I (sadly) do not see that to be the case!
            .

          • G03Maxine

            .
            ‘Omahdi’? I never heard about that? But I am interested in learning about it! Do you have a link to share that I can then check out? Thanks!
            .

          • G03Maxine

            .
            That is true! Mattis did in fact refer to Iran as being “the single most enduring threat to stability and peace in the Middle East”! But he has also reportedly expressed the other two comments (above) … about Israel … that still has me seriously questioning whether Mattis is in reality all that ‘very supportive of Israel’. Or might that not be just wishful thinking on both our parts?
            .

        • G03Maxine

          .
          Can you please supply the link you are referring re the ZOA statement ‘against Mattis for the reasons already outlined’? Thanks!
          .

      • G03Maxine

        .
        I sincerely hope and pray that I am wrong!
        .
        But then again, how is it possible that Mattis is not anti-Isreal … if he assumes that there will either be an apartheid Jewish state or a non-Jewish state (which is what a so-called ‘two-state solution’ amounts to)?
        .
        I am also troubled by his praise for John Kerry’s on Israel. Am I wrong about either one or both of these two facts? If so, then how so?
        .
        I really do want to be wrong about all of it! And I will be privileged to be able to publicly apologize for it … if I am found to have been mistaken.

    Patriotic American Police and National Guard need to learn where these planes will land on US soil, guard them and not let anyone off until detailed vetting and background info is attainted. Saw this done on “Designated Survivor” a few eps ago” it could work!

    Can Trump somehow stop this deal with Australia and the 110,000 Obama has said we’d take in from Oct.2016 to Oct.2017? Does his BS stand once he’s out of office? This deal is so dangerous just like most of the deals Obama makes. It’s total stupidity and ludicrous! I don’t understand why people aren’t up in arms about this! We’re bringing in people from countries who wouldn’t bat an eye at killing us! When is the stupid left gonna wake up? This is so insane! Why aren’t people protesting this instead of all the ridiculous things they’re out there protesting? Because they’re young dumb little clones of their ignorant professors!

    • knightsstrength

      They should actually go back to Indonesia from where they came from to Australia. Australis bows so much to Indonesia, even the UN should have told Indonesia to keep them. The UN backed the refugees and was against Australis turning back the boats.
      So much corruption in politics

      Indonesia’s Navy 2012 with its modern Navy and they could not pick up the refugees, yet Australia did even going into Indonesian Waters

    • Kathy Brown, Esq.

      Pres.-Elect Trump can reverse anything Obama has done, once he is inaugurated.

      The only exception is in the area of presidential pardons. However: The mere reversal of Obama’s previous acts does not of course reverse the harm caused thereby. For example: Obamacare’s harm is widespread.

      But great good can still be done by such reversals.

  • Brightfuture

    Bwahahah…I love that pic. “But All-ah, why? You are supposed to be THE greatest”. All whilst looking up….he should be looking downwards towards jell where his All-ah resides. And all this whining and drama cause he got his pants wet!

  • knightsstrength

    Sounds like Trump will stop the refugees from Australia, and good to tell Australias Liberal Prime Minister not to dump refugees in USA, but should be sent back to Indonesia. Gutless PM

    • Dorrie

      Obama still has 2 months in which to bring hundreds of thousands of them into this country.

  • cyndi

    Why would our government take men of fighting age that have been rejected by another country? Do they want to see people attacked and killed in our country? What the hell is wrong with Obama? I know he loves muslims and is one himself, but I can’t imagine how this gets by mass amounts of other government officials. Disgusting. I pray Trump stops this in its tracks.

  • Juanita

  • notme123

    If Australia turned them away for security reasons, would 0bama agreeing to accept them be considered aiding and abetting? Send them back where they came from.

  • John Marzo

    This guy is really trying to ruin the country before leaving office. It would be great news to see him tried for treason.

    • Craig

      Don’t forget, when he was running in 2007, he said he would punish the U.S. because it was arrogant and had never suffered a war on its shores or any famine or other disaster. The college kids were dancing in the streets commenting on how much fun it will be to punish America and the rich. Rat obama routinely releases illegal alien criminals (murderers, rapists, etc.) just before their deportation dates. Never forget, rat obama hates the United States.
