And so it begins!
As I predicted yesterday, it is coming—the announcement that we will be taking several thousand Syrian permanent refugees starting in a few weeks. The new fiscal year begins on October 1.
I’m using the word “permanent” for a reason. Some of the Syrians going to Europe are only going to be allowed to stay until the conflict is resolved, but our refugees are permanent.
From Middle East Monitor. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said this apparently in response to a question:
The United States has resettled 166 Syrians since the outbreak of the Syrian Revolution in 2011, a State Department official said on Thursday.
Marie Harf, US state department deputy spokeswoman, said during her daily press briefing, “The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) began in mid-2014 to refer Syrian refugees in large numbers to the United States.”
She pointed out that there are several thousands of Syrian refugees waiting to gain entry into the US, noting that the number will continue to increase.
And, we are expected to pony-up another $2 billion for the Syrian refugee crisis by the end of the year.
Don’t forget! Back in February, the Obama Administration bowed to pressure from “human rights” lobbyists/federal contractors to relax security screening so as to accommodate a Syrian migration to America, to your towns and cities. I can assure you that most of the Syrians admitted to the US will be Sunni Muslims.
