(Reuters) – The Republican-led House Committee on Homeland Security is challenging an Obama administration plan to admit Syrian refugees to the United States, saying it could allow potential terrorists to sneak into the country.
In a letter sent to the White House, Michael McCaul, who chairs the Homeland Security Committee and Peter King and Candice Miller, who chair subcommittees, said the administration’s plan "raises serious national security concerns."
The letter, dated Wednesday, said the United States lacks the resources to fully investigate the backgrounds of refugees from Syria, a base for Islamic State militants, before they are admitted to the country.
Anne Richard, an Assistant Secretary of State, said on Dec. 9 that the United States resettled nearly 70,000 refugees from nearly 70 countries in 2013 and that the administration’s refugee plans would lead to "resettling Syrians as well."
It appears the best way to create a path for jihadist to the west, Europe and the US, is to create chaos in your home country. We have some sort of self destruct mode that feels the need to open the gates to people we have no way to screen and only adds to our ever growing welfare rolls while allowing potential terrorist in. Add to that list those that may not be terrorist but simply won’t integrate into our society and you have a mess.
