‘Compassion’ For Refugees

To illustrate the “bad things” that are bound to happen when “we allow more and more people to come in” from terrorist areas, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) in August released the names of 20 people convicted of terrorism in the last three years that were admitted to our country as refugees from countries like Iraq, Somalia, Uzbekistan and Bosnia. One of the 20 had received a special visa for Iraqi translators and subsequently became a U.S. citizen, yet he later pledged an oath to the leader of ISIS.

Trump reminded a crowd in Erie, PA that we witnessed “what one sick wacko can do in Orlando. And then you see his father sitting behind Hillary Clinton with a big smile.” Well, Trump’s right, the father of Omar Mateen, who murdered 49 people at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub in June, was allowed to sit directly behind Hillary where he was visible on-camera during her entire 25-minute speech. Seddique Matteen, who came to the United States as a refugee in the 1980s, told reporters that Hillary Clinton “would be good for the United States.”

Well, Trump’s compassionate solution for the refugee crisis is to “build a beautiful safe zone in Syria” and get the Gulf States to pay for it – the oil-rich kingdoms of the Persian Gulf who are protected by the U.S. Navy, but have contributed nothing to the welfare of their fellow Arab Muslims in need.

Before we allow any more refugees from Syria, let’s take a closer look at what happened to a previous wave of refugees brought here from the failed East African state of Somalia. Starting in the 1990s, an estimated 100,000 Muslims from Somalia were resettled in Minnesota and Maine at U.S. taxpayers’ expense.

Instead of expressing their gratitude for the opportunity to live in a peaceful, prosperous nation, many Somalis have been trained by leftist community organizers to adopt an entitlement mentality and quickly complain about alleged discrimination. If that’s not bad enough, a disproportionate number of their young men have supported terrorism or have even traveled overseas to join ISIS.
