There’s much to digest in the monster spending bill passed today by our
fearless gutless Republican leadership in Congress. From the $1.15 trillion in spending to $620 billion in tax breaks, to Obama’s continued executive amnesty for DREAMers, to the resettlement of illegal aliens within the U.S. interior and the funding of sanctuary cities, where to start?
How about with the funding for nearly 300,000 visas to migrants from Muslim countries in the next year alone? To put that into perspective, this means that next year, the U.S. will admit more than TWO Muslim migrants for every ONE Iowa Republican primary voter.
According to Breitbart:
In passing this legislation, the House has approved funding for the issuance of nearly three hundred thousand visas to migrants from Muslim countries in the next year alone.
Ryan’s bill accomplishes this migrant surge by fully funding every U.S. immigration program currently in existence, as well as funding the President’s expansion of the refugee program through Syrian migrant resettlement.
The most recent available data published by the Department of Homeland Security shows that in 2013, around 118,000 migrants from Muslim-majority countries were permanently resettled within the United States on green cards, as well as approximately 40,000 refugees and asylees from Muslim countries. Additionally, according to data from the State Department, in 2013 the U.S. voluntarily admitted approximately 123,000 temporary migrants from Muslim countries as foreign students and foreign workers.
On top of those autopilot admissions, which will be funded throughout all of 2016, the House is also funding the President’s plan to add another 10,000 refugees from the Muslim country of Syria. As a result, Ryan’s House-passed omnibus will bring in nearly 300,000 Muslim migrants in the next 12 months alone, including roughly 170,000 who will be permanently resettled within the country. In a December 3rd letter to administration officials, Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) explained that the permeant resettlement of 170,000 Muslim migrants will be on top of the already huge inflow of temporary Muslim migrants:
Congress is days away from consideration of an omnibus year-end funding bill that would set the U.S. on an autopilot path to approve green cards, asylee, and refugee status to approximately 170,000 migrants from Muslim countries during the next fiscal year. In addition to that would tens of thousands of temporary visas for entry and employment, and the entire sum is added to the rest of the annual autopilot green card, asylee, refugee, and foreign worker flow.
This means that next year, the U.S. will admit more than two Muslim migrants for every one Iowa Republican primary voter.
In addition to the assimilation challenges posed by the large influx of Sharia-sympathetic Muslim migrants, it’s hard not to consider the security concerns, know that jihadists are using immigration to infiltrate.
And when you consider the admission just yesterday from the Obama administration that it’s lost track of thousands of foreigners whose visas were revoked due to terror concerns, it’s downright alarming:
The Obama administration cannot be sure of the whereabouts of thousands of foreigners in the U.S. who had their visas revoked over terror concerns and other reasons, a State Department official acknowledged Thursday.
The admission, made at a House oversight hearing examining immigrant vetting in the wake of major terror attacks, drew a sharp rebuke from the committee chairman.
And while we would expect Obama and his Democrat minions to continue full steam ahead with this influx of Muslims to the U.S. — security concerns, be damned — it’s disheartening, to say the least, that we can thank no fewer than 150 of our own GOP for this.
Yep, it’s no wonder anti-establishment Donald Trump is so far out in front in the GOP primary polls.
