“It is the ‘Invade the World/Invite the World’ attitude.”
(A critic of the proposal echoing a common theme of the President)
The Senator’s idea is to add thousands to the President’s 2020 refugee cap for those who ‘supposedly’ helped us to defeat ISIS. He recommends flying them here ASAP.
The Senator is a Republican—Idaho Senator Jim Risch, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
He is running for a third term, see here.
Thanks to several readers who tipped me off to this news reported by Neil Munro at Breitbart last Thursday:
GOP Sen. Jim Risch Offers Citizenship to Kurdish, Syrian Populations
Sen. Jim Risch (R-ID) is pushing a new bill that would transport many Muslims from chaotic Syria and Kurdistan into America’s schools and workplaces.
The bill creates a refugee program for Syrians and Kurds who claim to have helped U.S.-funded armed groups, such as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). Risch is the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, so his legislation may pass as soon as this week.
But his bill would provide a “carve-out” in refugee law for Middle Eastern fighters, said a source. Also, the uncapped refugee inflow would include many unvetted and unidentified people because U.S. officials cannot prevent or even detect fraud in the war-torn areas occupied by hostile or corrupt warlords, said the source.
Once people are admitted as refugees, they are put on a fast-track to citizenship.
The program would import Syria’s chaotically diverse cultures and conflicts back into the United States, the official said, adding, “It is the ‘Invade the World/Invite the World’ attitude.”
The legislation reflects the politicians’ starry-eyed support for foreign groups, regardless of the cost inflicted on Americans, the official said. “They care more about Syrians than they care about Americans,” the source said.
Risch’s bill is titled S.2641 and is named “Promoting American National Security and Preventing the Resurgence of ISIS Act of 2019.” It was introduced October 17.
The bill cuts a hole through current refugee law to allow many Kurds and Syrians to be flown out of the war zone into the United States, providing they claim a connection to groups who were supported or funded by the U.S. government during the last few years….
There is much more, continue reading here.
The driving force for more refugees in Idaho is the ‘need’ for a continuous supply of cheap labor for large industries including dairy and, dare I say, yogurt manufacturing. Pols are eager to please their industry backers.
A trip down memory lane!
I guess the Senator has forgotten the 2015 controversy about the possibility of Syrian refugees being placed in Idaho! The mere suggestion created a firestorm of public outrage.
Trying to silence the critics, the big paper there called citizens who had expressed fear at the prospect—“paranoid!”
I have an extensive archive on Idaho that new readers might want to visit to get up to speed on what has happened there over the last five years as refugee contractors push for more refugees to ‘welcome’ to the state.
Indeed rumors are swirling that contractors in Washington state have begun to move refugees across state lines into northern Idaho.
Idahoans should take the lead and let their Republican Senator know how they feel about more Middle Eastern (Religion of Peace) refugees coming to Idaho and to America!
