When President Trump signed an executive order (EO) banning Syrian refugees from entering the United States, several Democrats freaked out. Chuck Schumer went drama queen, saying that tears were streaming down the Statue of Liberty’s face. Sen. Warren said that the move was “a betrayal of American values.” Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) “wrote in an Huffington Post op-ed that ‘Trump has now handed ISIS a path to rebirth.'” Sen. Feinstein said “there is no legitimate national security reason to ban refugees, the vast majority of whom are women and children who have experienced absolute horror.”
SPECIAL NOTE TO SEN. MURPHY: ISIS hasn’t stopped expanding its operational capabilities. It’s impossible to be reborn if you’re still growing your operational capabilities.
This article highlights how ISIS is using the Syrian refugee crisis to infiltrate its operatives into Europe. According to the article, “On a crisp morning last October, 198 migrants arrived on the Greek island of Leros, all of them seemingly desperate people seeking sanctuary in Europe. But hiding among them were four men with a very different agenda. The four were posing as war-weary Syrians — all carrying doctored passports with false identities. And they were on a deadly mission for the Islamic State.”
That isn’t all. There’s more:
Two of the four would masquerade as migrants all the way to Paris. There, at 9:20 p.m. on Nov. 13, they would detonate suicide vests near the Stade de France sports complex, fulfilling their part in the worst attack on French soil since World War II.
It’s frightening that Sen. Feinstein would say that these refugees don’t pose a national security threat to the United States. If ISIS terrorists can make it to western Europe disguised as refugees, ISIS terrorists can make it to the United States disguised as refugees. This should wake up Democrats. Either that or it will expose them as total ISIS deniers:
European security officials say they think that the Islamic State has seeded terrorist cells on the continent over the past year and was able to do so in part because the European Union failed to come to grips with a migrant crisis that opened a funnel for the militant group. Europe is now working with Turkey to bar its doors, ending the waves of irregular migration that washed over the continent last year. But more than a million migrants, a record, have already entered. Hundreds of thousands of them, European intelligence agencies say, may have done so without thorough checks at their entry point: Greece.
The vast majority of migrants were genuinely fleeing war and poverty. But over the past six months, more than three dozen suspected militants who impersonated migrants have been arrested or died while planning or carrying out acts of terrorism. They include at least seven directly tied to the bloody attacks in Paris and Brussels. The Islamic State is gloating that they have far more lying in wait. “We have sent many operatives to Europe with the refugees,” an Islamic State commander said in an interview over an encrypted data service. “Some of our brothers have fulfilled their mission, but others are still waiting to be activated.”
Sen. Feinstein, doesn’t this indicate that ISIS ‘refugees’ pose a legitimate threat to US national security? If it doesn’t, why doesn’t it?
The Statue says “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” It doesn’t say “Give me your terrorists who want to create havoc within our nation.”
It isn’t wrong to accuse the Democratic Party of becoming the Party of ISIS Deniers.
