Looks like terrorism is going to become the new norm for America, with the continued increase of ‘refugees’ integrated into our society. But one state is saying a big HELL NO, to refugees. Guess Which one it is.
A SERIES of major states have pulled out of Barack Obama’s major mass refugee welcome plan which will see thousands of migrants scattered across the US.
President Obama’s radical plan to let in hundreds of thousands of refugees already risks collapse just days after the announcement.The US leader revealed a worldwide plan at the UN summit to take in 360,000 refugees next year.
He also told world leaders that the US itself will welcome more than 100,000 desperate migrants.
However, the plan has already been hit by a revolt among US states.
Texas to stop refugee aid as Obama plans more resettlements Texas has told the US government that it will refuse to house any refugees.The Texan withdrawal comes after both Kansas and New Jersey pulled out of the resettlement programme following “security concerns”.Governor Greg Abbott echoed these fears after he said the resettlement program was “riddled with serious problems that pose a threat to our nation”.
Last year, nearly 30 states vowed to block Syrian refugees following the shocking Paris attacks.
Texas previously sued the federal government in a failed attempt to block resettlements.
He condemned the US Government’s “inability to fully screen refugees from terrorist-based nations”.
The state’s revolt came as State Department spokesman John Kirby acknowledged that ISIS terrorists were trying to mingle with refugee populations overseas in the hopes of making it to the US in disguise.
Mr Kirby told the press: “I wouldn’t debate the fact that there’s the potential for ISIS terrorists to try to insert themselves, and we see that in some of the refugee camps in Jordan and in Turkey, where they try to insert themselves into the population.
“Is the process perfect? Can it be perfect? Can it be foolproof? Well, probably not, no.”
The acknowledgement comes after the Department of Homeland Security inspector general’s office released a report showing that 858 individuals from countries “of concern to the national security” were mistakenly granted U.S. citizenship instead of being deported.
President Obama pledged to accept roughly 110,000 refugees from around the world in 2017, a 60 percent increase over this year’s total.
But, the Texan Governor has refused to cooperate with President Obama, the Government could still force the refugees onto the state.
Sources say federal officials could bypass the state in coordinating resettlements with local charities.
