Will GOP Congress Stop Obama’s Final Terrorist “Refugee” Deal?

As our friends at Legal Insurrection recently noted, in 2013 Australia wisely passed legislation that establishes the refusal of admittance to all refugees who arrive in Australia by boat.   But they keep on coming, so now Australia has over a thousand Muslim refugees from Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Africa, and Asia that it won’t admit to its country. 

Australia is currently housing them in holding facilities on surrounding islands. However, in a final affront to the American people, who just rejected the policy of importing millions of “refugees” from terrorist hotspots, Obama Obamahas made a secret deal with Australia to accept 2,500 “refugees’ that were rejected for asylum down under. 

And Americans, rightly concerned about more “refugees” from Muslim terrorist hotspots after the attack at Ohio State can’t even find out who or where these purported “refugees” are from, because in an unprecedented move, the U.S. State Department has classified details on refugees to be resettled in America via the secret deal made with Australia.  

According to Fox News, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was mum when lawmakers asked about the refugees. “This is a backroom deal, wheeling and dealing with another country's refugee problem,” Center for Immigration Studies fellow Don Barnett told “I don’t believe for a moment it’s a one-time deal. That’s for public consumption.” 

When staffers probed the number of individuals being considered for resettlement, they were told it was “classified,” even though refugee admissions are traditionally public. Officials, however, did confirm countries of origin to be Iran, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq and Sudan, as well as some deemed “stateless.” 

Iran, Sudan and Syria are the three countries on the U.S. current State Sponsors of Terrorism list. But Barnett said the “stateless” category is most worrisome. 

“These could be Burmese Muslims, who have posed assimilation issues for every nation which has taken them,” said Barnett. “It’s a dangerous precedent which says, ‘We’ll take any ethnic group with which you don’t get along.’” 

Speaking at a Nov. 14 press conference, Australian Prime Minister Turnbull said, “Nobody is taking any more refugees, but what the Americans are doing is assisting these individuals on Nauru and Manus by bringing them in within their existing quota.” 

However, the Obama administration increased the quota for the 12-month period that began in October to 110,000 refugees, up from 85,000 the previous year. 

Representatives from the Senate and House committees are set to receive a classified briefing on the Australian refugee deal next week. However, numerous questions could remain shielded from public view including costs, timing, benefit to the U.S. and perhaps most importantly why it was done in secret. 

The good news is help may be on the way. At a rally before a crowd of supporters in Cincinnati last Thursday, President-elect Trump linked the Islam-inspired violent rampage by Somalian immigrant Abdul Razak Ali Artan at Ohio State University to refugee programs “stupidly created by our very stupid politicians.” 

Mr. Trump, who moves into the White House in less than 50 days, said he will “suspend immigration from regions where it cannot be safely processed.” The 2,500 refugees in detention facilities on Nauru and Manus Island are from countries including Somalia, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan and Sri Lanka. 

“We will do everything in our power to keep the scourge of terrorism out of our country,” Trump told the crowd during his first major address since winning the presidency three weeks ago. 

“Just so you understand, people are pouring in from regions of the Middle East" said Trump. “We have no idea who they are, where they come from, what they’re thinking and we’re going to stop them dead cold flat.” 

However, in budget documents sent to Congress, the administration is seeking a jump from $1.7 billion to $3.9 billion for Health and Human Services Department programs aimed at the care and welfare of illegal immigrants and refugees.  

That increase, which has shocked many immigration critics on Capitol Hill, is far more than the $1.4 billion increase the administration sought for veterans health care in the Fiscal 2017 budget. 

"What the heck is going on here?" asked Texas Rep. Brian Babin, who has sought to rein in the president's expanding refugee programs. "This is a total violation of what Trump is trying to do," Babin told The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard. 

Now here’s the real kicker: Republican leaders in Congress are considering how to “plus up” Obama’s refugee resettlement budget in the must-pass continuing resolution being put together for a pre-Christmas vote. 

Information leaking from Capitol Hill suggests that the Republican "leadership" is trying to plus-up the Refugee Resettlement account by between $2.9 billion and as much as $9 billion. 

We urge CHQ readers to call Congress (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell your Senators and Representative to oppose funding Obama’s plan to import more jihad to America through the “refugee” resettlement program.

Terrorist refugee deal

The president has NOT the right or authority to make "backroom deals" such as this! Congress must vote on it BEFORE he tries to do this, and especially since they have already been rejected by Australia, their approval is very unlikely! ....and....should congress approve this, they will have to answer to the American public!

will gop congress stop immigration funding

Every effort must be made to stop and remove every cent of funding for any immigration, asylum or refugee except for funds required to deport illegals and criminals.

Stop more unvented people from entering our country

Please set up a camp out side Guitmo where we have land and let them stay there until they are fully vetted.
While there they can learn English, be fed and be away from fear.

It is beyond time to STOP the import of obama's Radical Muslim Army before there is enough of them to attack us on our own soil. obama must be IMPEACHED and CHARGED with TREASON, tried and convicted and this TRAITOR MUST BE EXECUTED! This must happen before another American is KILLED by the hands of another Muslim Terrorists in our Country. obama is a TRAITOR to America and should have NEVER BEEN ELECTED TO BEGIN WITH.
