You know once Trump is in there will be a strict vetting process and the amount of refugees accepted will go down. Obama doesn’t want that. He’s rushing to get refugees into the US. And when all the terror attacks start up right when Trump takes office, guess who the liberals will blame. Not themselves; like Hillary, they never do anything wrong.

TURNBULL and Obama Government officials are racing to begin resettling refugees in the United States before the incoming Trump administration can halt the deal between the two countries.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has ordered the biggest peacetime border protection operation in Australian history to deter people smugglers after the US agreed to accept refugees currently held on Nauru and Manus Island.
The agreement will see women, children, family groups and other vulnerable refugees assessed for residency in the United States.
US Homeland Security officials are expected to arrive in Australia within days to begin arranging health and security checks.
Mr Turnbull yesterday publicly thanked President Barack Obama for agreeing to the one-off deal, but was unable to say if incoming president Donald Trump would honour the agreement after he was sworn in on January 20.
Mr Trump has previously called for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration to the US and many of the 1,145 asylum seekers on Nauru and 958 on Manus are Muslims.
