Obama telling refugees: Just vet yourself

Officials make astonishing admission about lack of screening

President Obama’s top official responsible for vetting refugees testified before the Senate Wednesday that it’s possible for people from Syria and other terrorist-infested countries to have their refugee applications approved based simply on personal interviews with a “highly trained” immigration officer.

Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, could not deny that in many cases there is no data from the refugee’s home country that would corroborate or refute his story. He tried to reassure the committee by saying the screening process is lengthy and continuously being improved, noting that the United Nations pre-screens the refugees before his office even sees them.

Under questioning from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Rodriguez at first avoided giving a direct answer on whether it was possible to gain admission as a refugee based solely on an interview. That infuriated Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who chairs the subcommittee on immigration and the national interest. His subcommittee conducted the hearing Wednesday on Obama’s refugee plans for fiscal year 2017, which begins Saturday, Oct. 1.

Obama plans to bring 110,000 refugees to the United States in 2017, up from 85,000 in 2016 and 70,000 in 2015.

It will be very comforting to an American citizen who is kneeling over their 7 year old, who is bleeding out from the bomb some muslim set off AFTER he "vetted himself" to the satisfaction of homeland security, who only seem to be interested in not hurting a muslim's feelings (MUCH more than they are concerned with protecting U.S. citizens).
EVERY ONE of these politicians and their NON-ELECTED Nazi wanna-be appointees have SWORN to uphold and defend the Constitution and protect Americans. Their word, their integrity, and their character could be compared to a crackhead whore.
They do everything BUT that.
And you just can't stop cheering and voting for more of the same.
They treat you like a sucker at a carnival game.
Keep cheering.....
