Mali Muslim Terrorists Welcome Under Speaker Ryan’s New Refugee Bill

Victim of Mali jihad

Last week establishment Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan shot down the idea of a religious test for refugees coming to America at taxpayer expense. Ryan said, "We will not have a religious test, only a security test," before touting his bill that allegedly gives extra scrutiny to those “refugees” coming to the U.S. from Syria and Iraq.

The day after Ryan’s bill was pushed through the House on a closed Rule, meaning no conservative amendments were allowed, Muslim terrorists – jihadis as they call themselves – launched a terror attack on the American-owned Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako, Mali.

One American, former Peace Corps volunteer Anita Datar, was among 27 reported dead after the Muslim jihadis  attacked the hotel shouting "Allahu akbar" (Allah is great).

The bill the House passed, H.R. 4038, “The American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act,” or rather was forced by Speaker Ryan to pass, limits the extra scrutiny and security certification to purported refugees only from Syria and Iraq.

Those receiving the extra security screening, described as a “Covered Alien” in Section 2(e)(1)(A-C) of the bill, are “any alien applying for admission to the United States as a refugee who… (A) is a national or resident of Iraq or Syria; (B) has no nationality and whose last habitual residence was in Iraq or Syria; or (C) has been present in Iraq or Syria at any time on or after March 1, 2011.

Notice there’s no mention of Mali, Nigeria, Somalia, Yemen or any of the other jihadi hotspots around the globe.

Why is that?

It’s because the American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act wasn’t passed to protect innocent Americans, it is purely a political ploy to protect vulnerable Republican incumbents who are facing conservative primary challengers, like incumbent Martha Roby in Alabama-2, who is being challenged by Becky Gerritson, like incumbent Renee Ellmers in NC-2 who is being challenged by Frank Roche and Jim Duncan, and like incumbent Pete Sessions in TX-32 who is being challenged by Russell Ramsland.

If Ryan’s bill wasn’t a merely political ploy to give his vulnerable establishment Republican incumbents cover then it would have clearly imposed the existing religious test found in Section 1158 of Title 8, U.S. Code and Section 1101(a)(42)(A) of Title , U.S. Code on ANY refugee entering America.

AND it would have re-imposed the sensible provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 (also known as the McCarran–Walter Act) that allowed the government to deport immigrants or naturalized citizens engaged in subversive activities and also allowed the barring of suspected subversives from entering the country. And apropos the issue of Muslim immigration, it would state that the law could be used to bar members and former members and "fellow travelers" of Islamist organizations, such as the Muslim Brotherhood, from entry into the United States.

According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNCR) there are 139,267 “refugees” in Mali, and 12,247 “asylum seekers” in the country. There are also thousands more alleged Malian refugees in Niger, Burkina Faso and Mauritania – how many of them can be admitted to the United States without any extra screening and no test of whether or not they subscribe to the mixture of religion and politics that motivates jihadi terrorists?

Between 2000 and 2013 (the last year figures are available) 6,105 Malians immigrated to America and almost 15,000 came from neighboring Muslim-majority countries where jihadi terrorism is displacing thousands of “refugees.”

As we concluded in our columns “Homegrown Muslim Terrorism Fueled By Obama – Bush Immigration System,” “America's Suicidal Muslim Immigration Policies,” “Importing Jihad” and “Why Do We Let These Vipers Into America?” Islam, as it is today practiced by millions of Muslims across the globe, is inimical to the separation of church and state and government based on constitutional liberty. We are in a war of ideas, not just with radical Islamists, but with concepts deeply embedded in Muslim culture. And as long as mass legal (and illegal) immigration from Muslim countries continues unabated we are losing that war.

Ryan’s cave-in to political correctness and his abject refusal to acknowledge that the threat America needs to guard against is jihad – Islamist-inspired terrorism – defies the obvious facts on the ground, existing law and precedents from the past (the McCarran–Walter Act) when sanity actually ruled Congress and politicians of both parties regarded America as the “last hope of Western civilization,” and recognized that “if this oasis of the world shall be overrun, perverted, contaminated or destroyed, then the last flickering light of humanity will be extinguished."
