Why do Republicans still trust Obama on immigration?


Phyllis Schlafly and Chuck Grassley, please don’t trust Barack Obama, at all!

Schlafly wrote the article “America Has Taken More Than Our Share of Refugees,” making the point:

“The United States is the most generous nation in the world, and we have taken many refugees from foreign lands. Europe has not offered to take refugees from Central America, so why are some politicians here insisting that we take many thousands of refugees from the Middle East?”

   I agree, and then she points out, it’s not a smart idea to take countless people who aren’t likely to “assimilate” into American culture. Schlafly adds:

“Fortunately, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, wants to put some brakes on giving away the security of our neighborhoods to thousands of people having unknown intentions about the United States and our way of life.”

Really? Now I’m wondering, what could Grassley do about this? Responding to the threat of countless Middle Eastern refugees (potential terrorists) Chuck Grassley says:

“Before agreeing to accept tens of thousands of Syrian refugees, the Obama administration must prove to the American people that it will take the necessary precautions to ensure that national security is a top priority, especially at a time when ruthless terrorist groups like ISIS are committed to finding ways to enter the United States and harm Americans.”

You’ve got to be kidding me! You lost me at “The Obama administration must prove to the American people.” Obama is not interested in proving anything to the American people, except how he’s going to do what he wants, when he wants.

As it is, hundreds of thousands of illegals are pouring across the border every year. Who knows, it may even be 1 million+, every single year! What is Obama proving to the American people? That he wants as many Democrat voters as possible.

Schlafly continues:

“Our welfare system is already strained by the Central American migrants who entered our country illegally and never went home. There are a potential six billion people in the world who would like to partake in the American welfare system if given the opportunity, but we cannot afford to foot the bill for everyone in the world who does not have a job.

We should learn from the experience of accepting about 55,000 Somali refugees between 1983 and 2004, which included the Clinton administration and three different Republican administrations, and taking another 27,000 Somalis between 2008 and 2013 under the Obama administration. Many were settled in Minnesota, where Somali participation in a food assistance program increased to 17,300 adults and children, not even including Somalis subsequently born here.

An open-door policy toward Syrian refugees would be dangerous and costly for American communities. As Sessions says, “Our policy should be to keep the refugees as close to home as possible. For the cost of one in the United States, we could probably provide maintenance to 10, maybe more, in or near their home country.”

The Somalia experiment proved that if you import large quantities of people who know nothing about American language and culture, they will live on welfare, not be employed, and years later, still know nothing about American language and culture.

Eight years ago, Fox News wrote an article about the Somali “experiment” with the headline “Minnesota: America’s First Somali-Muslim State?”

John Gibson  Makes the point:

“Somalis coming to Minnesota are not assimilating. They are bringing the Muslim culture of that desert country to Minnesota’s snowy woods. They may have to wear warmer clothing, but the Somalis want Islamic law just like back home. And they want the same illegal drug they had back home, too.

More recently, this Washington Times article in February headlines:

“Feds’ relocation of Somali refugees stresses Minn. welfare, raises terror fears”

How bad could it be? Kelly Riddell says:

“the effort is having the unintended consequence of creating an enclave of immigrants with high unemployment that is both stressing the state’s safety net and creating a rich pool of potential recruiting targets for Islamist terror groups.”


“Even though Minnesota has a good job market, that doesn’t seem to have translated into jobs for the Somali refugees. Minnesota’s state demographer’s office reports that only 41 percent of Somali men are working and 54 percent of Somali women are employed, meaning many may rely on the state’s handouts to survive, and are more susceptible to extremists pull.

“It seems safe to assume that if they’re not working, then they’re likely receiving public welfare benefits,” said Peter Nelson, director of public policy at the Center of the American Experiment. “More problematic, the Somali men not working are clearly not integrating as well as they could with society, which could feed into them being radicalized and recruited to fight with” the Islamic State.”

Minnesotans are spending billions of dollars on people who refuse to work, are creating separate countries within their communities, who are changing the culture of Minnesota, exposing their families to sharia law, a radical Middle Eastern legal system and endangering their lives, as terrorist groups work to recruit Somalians and  establish a foothold in the middle of the United States!

Phyllis Schlafly, I don’t trust Charles Grassley to put “some breaks” on what Obama might do. I don’t trust Obama at all! He has already proven that all he wants to do is saturate America with as many potential Democrat voters as possible.

There are countless millions of people suffering in the world, more than enough to overwhelm all of Europe and the Americas. If Western nations really want to do something to help those countries, they need to to kick out the tyrants and put in real leaders, leaders who want to make the world a better place. Allow elections, but make it on a trial basis. If the leader they elect is just another tyrant, get rid of him and have another election!
