Important Action Alert
The U.S. Congress must vote on an “Omnibus” funding bill on, or around December 11th. As noted in the article below, right now “there is expected to be full funding of President Obama’s refugee resettlement program, which costs $1.2 billion annually to bring in 85,000 refugees from more than two dozen countries around the world.”
It is unacceptable to bring these un-vettable refugees into the U.S. Our lawmakers must put the security of our nation first.
We are in the heat of battle… This issue has the full attention of our legislators. Your voice matters!
Please contact your U.S. legislators about this important issue today, and thank you for all that you do.
San Bernardino Shooter Passed DHS Counterterrorism Vetting
By by Joel Gehrke for National Review
Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) want President Obama to release the immigration records of the San Bernardino shooters, arguing they should play a key role in the coming debate over funding the Syrian refugee resettlement& program.
Their request comes as CBS reports that one of the shooting suspects passed the Department of Homeland Security’s “counterterrorism screening as part of her vetting” for a visa. Federal officials maintain that they have a rigorous and effective screening process in place for people from countries such as Syria that have significant jihadist movements, making the immigration records of the San Bernardino shooters a potentially significant piece of the debate over refugee policy.
