Who are they? Those are the 14 Senators led by Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and Illinois Senator Dick Durban who last year wrote to Obama asking that he admit 65,000 Syrian (mostly Sunni Muslim) refugees to the US.
I had a good laugh here in September of last year when we saw that the New York Times had picked up our nickname for the group but couldn’t bother to link or even name where they got it!
You can bet this same gang will be upping their demands when Obama does his UN pow-wow in September and sends his final “determination” to Congress right after that.
Here are the Senators to watch. Guesses? Will they demand 65,000 again, 75,000? or maybe 100,000?
Thanks to reader Julia for reminding me that Kaine is on this distinguished list.
