In November, when the debate about the U.S. taking in 10,000 Syrian Refugees heated up, 29 Republican Governors (including Florida Governor Rick Scott), the Republican Presidential Candidates, U.S. Congressman Vern Buchanan, and even I took a lot of heat for being opposed to President Obama on this issue.
Conservative opposition focused on the belief that, due to the FBI’s warning that the Federal Government lacked the ability to properly vet refugees, this was simply too much of a national security risk to the United States.
At the time, the left (and the media) directly attacked Conservatives for being “insensitive”. Well….just minutes ago, CNN reported some very concerning news about two Middle East “refugee” terrorists. This story, posted below, validates the concern about the Federal Government’s inability to properly screen Middle East refugees.
Please take a moment to read the article (below) and then reply back to this email to share if you support or oppose allowing refugees from the Middle East into the United States.
*Kudos to Governor Rick Scott (& the other 28 Republican Governors), U.S. Congressman Vern Buchanan, and every other Republican Elected Official who opposed Obama’s push to allow 10,000+ Syrian refugees into the U.S.
Feds arrest two Middle East refugees on terror-related charges
U.S. federal authorities arrested two refugees on terror-related charges Thursday.
The arrests in Sacramento and Houston did not appear to be directly related, but the cases had several similarities.
Both men were Palestinians born in Iraq and living as refugees in the United States, according to the U.S. Justice Department. And both of them are accused of lying to immigration officials about their alleged ties to terrorist organizations.
Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, 24, of Houston, is charged with attempting to provide material support to ISIS.
Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, 23, of Sacramento, California, is charged with making a false statement involving international terrorism.
It was not immediately clear whether Hardan or Jayab had retained legal representation. They are both scheduled to appear in courts on Friday.
