You know what “streamline” means! It is the acceptable way to say “lessen” the security screening for the UN-chosen, mostly Muslim Syrians we are admitting to the US.
Here is Reuters reporting on Richard’s NPR interview yesterday:
A State Department refugee official said on Saturday that U.S. leaders are committed to bringing more Syrian refugees to the United States and that she would like to see a steep increase in their numbers in 2017.
Anne Richard, assistant secretary of state for population, refugees and migration, told National Public Radio the Obama administration would like to see the refugee process move more quickly and is trying to streamline the vetting process without cutting corners on security.
The United States has taken in 1,500 refugees since the start of the Syrian war in 2011, and President Barack Obama last week committed to accepting 10,000 more over the coming year.
“I think that the most senior leadership at the State Department, the National Security Council and the White House want to bring more refugees and so that’s something that we’re very focused on right now,” Richard told NPR.
“Well, next year the president has said we will bring 10,000. So the year after that I’d like to see a steep ramp up,” she said.
Obama will have one more shot at swamping your towns with Syrian refugees in September of 2016 when he submits his determination for FY2017, but he can’t dictate those numbers now. Richard is probably saying 2017 should be a better year to get the human rights industrial complex agitators off her back (and Obama’s back).
More confirmation of what I have been saying, the UNHCR is dictating which Syrians we take! Thus we are getting mostly Muslim Syrians!
Refugee applications referred to the United States by the U.N. refugee agency undergo multiple security checks by several federal agencies.
