DHS says FBI Investigating 300 refugees for Terror Ties Many from Countries on Trump’s Travel Ban List
MAYBE THIS IS THE REASON WHY TRUMP THINKS THERE SHOULD BE A TEMPORARY TRAVEL BAN TO RE-ACCESS THINGS …
It would appear that President Donald Trump and his temporary travel ban is looking to make America safe again. As reported at Town Hall, the FBI is currently investigating 300 refugees that have been admitted into the United States for ties to terrorism. This is after so-called vetting procedures failed and thus allowing them in America in the first place. REALLY? Also reported is that many of these refugees come from countries that are listed on President Donald Trump’s executtive order, temporarily banning travel from in order to review the vetting process.
The FBI is investigating at least 300 refugees admitted to the U.S. for ties to terrorism after vetting from the countries they came from failed. Fox News Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge has the story:
Nearly a third of the 1,000 FBI domestic terrorism cases – 300 – involve those admitted to the U.S. as refugees, a Department of Homeland Security official said Monday. Officials said some of those 300 came to “infiltrate” the U.S., while others were radicalized once they were in the country.
Monday’s development marked the first official concrete linkage between the refugee program and terrorism.
During a speech to the National Association of Attorneys General in 2015, FBI Director James Comey said agents were working on nearly 1000 ISIS linked cases throughout the United States.
Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly said the travel ban announced Monday was a key to ansuring the refugee program is conducted safely.
“We must undertake a rigorous review of our visa and refugee vetting programs to increase our confidence in the entry decisions we make for visitors and immigrants to the United States,” Kelly said. “We cannot risk the prospect of malevolent actors using our immigration system to take American lives.”
Several refugees have already participated in mass attacks in recent years motivated by apparent Islamic radicalism.
Somali refugee Abdul Razak Ali Artan rammed his car into a crowd at The Ohio State University in November after posting a message on Facebook warning America not to interfere with Muslim communities. Somali refugee Dahir Adan reportedly yelled “Allahu Akbar” and asked one victim if they were Muslim during a September rampage in which he stabbed and injured nine people at a Minnesota mall. Seddique Mateen, the father of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen, is an Afghan refugee. Countless other refugees have been convicted of plotting attacks or planning to join ISIS abroad.
Though they didn’t enter the nation as refugees, several other terrorists have benefited from inadequate vetting to come to the U.S.
Tashfeen Malik, who was born in Pakistan, came to the U.S. on a K-1 “fiancée” visa prior to engaging in a deadly shooting spree with husband Syed Rizwan Farook that killed 14 and injured 22 others in December 2015. Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the brothers who orchestrated the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, were born in Kyrgyzstan and entered the U.S. when their family filed for asylum.
President Donald Trump during 2017 Address to Congress … “Protect Our Nation from Radical Islamic Terrorism” (VIDEO)
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP GOES THERE THERE … WE WILL TAKE STRONG MEASURES TO PROTECT OUR NATION FROM RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM!!!
So much for Barack Obama’s Overseas Contingency Operation … It has been a long time in coming and it took President Donald Trump to say it during his first Address to Congress to unabashedly name the enemy confronting the United States and the rest of the world, radical Islamic terrorism!!! The WAPO described the 3 words used by President Trump as the ‘Three words that separate Trump from most of Washington.’ Note to WAPO, Democrats, liberals and the rest of the MSM, you know who also uses those same three words and are on the side of President Donald J. Trump, WE THE PEOPLE!!!
“We’re also taking strong measures to protect our nation from radical Islamic terrorism,” Trump said in his address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night, with Republicans and one Democrat, Rep. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), responding with a standing ovation.
“According to data provided by the Department of Justice, the vast majority of individuals convicted of terrorism and terrorism related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country,” Trump said.
“We have seen the attacks at home from Boston to San Bernardino to the Pentagon and, yes, even the World Trade Center,” Trump said. “We have seen the attacks in France, in Belgium, in Germany, and all over the world.
“It is not compassion but reckless to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur,” Trump said.
BRILLIANTLY WRITTEN SPEECH, AMAZINGLY DELIVERED AND MADE DEMOCRATS LOOK REALLY, REALLY SMALL … THIS I CAN TELL YOU!!!
Tonight in President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress, he called for a “restart the engine of the American economy” through tax cuts, better trade deals, immigration enforcement and a $1 trillion infrastructure program, the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, historic tax reform for business and the middle class, an increase in military spending by $54 billion, while cutting other agency budgets by the same amount and leave entitlements like Medicare untouched. Trump asked for Republicans and Democrats to work together for the sake of the American people to give the people a real healthcare plan that they are not forced to buy from the government, lower the cost and provide an actually working form of insurance that works before Obamacare implodes. And he called for the Department of Defense to develop a plan to demolish and destroy ISIS, a network of lawless savages that have slaughtered Muslims and Christians, and men, women, and children of all faiths and beliefs.
By contrast, Democrats looked so small tonight as they refused to stand or clap for President Trump’s vision of school choice for blacks and Hispanics, jobs for Americans, or the support of United States citizens who were victims of of illegal immigrant violence. Many in this country, especially Independents are asking themselves just who’s side are you on?
President Trump declared Tuesday that a “new chapter of American greatness is now beginning” as he made economic revival the centerpiece of his first address to Congress – issuing a clarion call to “restart the engine of the American economy” through tax cuts, better trade deals, immigration enforcement and a $1 trillion infrastructure program.
He also called on Congress to replace what he called the “imploding ObamaCare disaster,” with legislation that lowers costs and expands access, an ambitious goal for GOP lawmakers still trying to come together on a plan.
The president outlined his agenda in an address to a joint session of Congress that lasted roughly an hour and focused almost exclusively on priorities at home, not abroad. He offered a decidedly upbeat vision for the future of the country that stood in contrast to his at-times foreboding inauguration address.
“Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed. Every problem can be solved. And every hurting family can find healing, and hope,” Trump said.
Trump for the most part traded the contentious and punchy tone of the last few weeks for loftier – some might say more presidential – rhetoric. Declaring “the time for small thinking is over,” Trump appealed to the country to “believe, once more, in America.”
President Donald Trump Says at CPAC … “I’m not Representing the Globe. I’m Representing Your Country,” the United States of America
DONALD TRUMP TELLS CPAC AMERICA FIRST … I’M REPRESENTING THE U.S.A., NOT THE GLOBE!!!
Today at CPAC, President Donald Trump unabashedly stated, I am representing the United States of America. President Trump the following: “We will not answer to donors or lobbyists, or special interests, but we will serve the citizens of the United States of America, believe me. Global cooperation, dealing with other countries, getting along with other countries is good. But there is no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency or global flag. This is the United States of America that I am representing. I am not representing the globe, I am representing your country.”
President Trump had previously stated, “We are going to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of our country”. Trump continued to say, “I will never apologize for protecting the safety and security of the American people and the security of the American people is number one.”
Isn’t it refreshing to have a president that put’s America first and doesn’t feel the need to apologize for America?
Comments above begin at the 43:55 minute mark of video
The core conviction of our movement is that we are a nation that will put its own citizens first.
For too long we’ve traded away our jobs to other countries, so terrible. We’ve defended other nations’ borders while leaving ours wide open — anybody can come in.
Take a look at what’s happening to our world, folks. And we have to be smart. We have to be smart. We can’t let it happen to us. So let me state this as clearly as I can: We are going to keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country.
We will not be deterred from this course, and in a matter of days we will be taking brand new action to protect our people and keep America safe. You will see the action. I will never, ever apologize for protecting the safety and security of the American people. I won’t do it. If it means I get bad press, if it means people speak badly of me, it’s okay, it doesn’t bother me.
The security of our people is number one, is number one. Our administration is running with great efficiency, even though I still don’t have my Cabinet approved. Nobody mentions that. Do you know I still have people out there waiting to be approved. And everyone knows they’re going to be approved. It’s just a delay, delay, delay. It’s really sad. It’s really sad. And these are great people. These are some great people.
We will not answer to donors or lobbyists or special interests, but we will serve the citizens of the United States of America, believe me. Global cooperation, dealing with other countries, getting along with other countries is good. It’s very important, but there is no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency, or a global flag. This is the United States of America that I’m representing. I’m not representing the globe. I’m representing your country.
There’s one allegiance that unites us all, and that is to America. America. It’s the allegiance to America. No matter our background or income or geography, we’re all citizens of this blessed land, and no matter our color or the blood, color of the blood we bleed, it’s the same red blood of great, great patriots. Remember great patriots. We all salute with pride the same American flag, and we all are equal, totally equal in the eyes of almighty God. We’re equal.
This is what the LEFT and the MSM does not understand, an overwhelming number of Americans that don’t live in California or NYC, believe in all of the above comments made by Donald Trump.
IT WOULD APPEAR THAT AMERICANS LIKE TRUMP’S EXECUTIVE ORDERS …
One would think listening to the liberal MSM and the LEFT that Americans have an issue with President Donald Trump’s executive orders, however, according to a recent Morning Consult/Politico poll, that could not be farther from the truth. As per the poll, 55% of Americans support Trump’s traval ban executive order while only 33% disapprove. See below, as many of his other executive orders are polling positive with the American people as well. So once again its the MSM, Democrats and the LEFT on the wrong side of “We the People”.
President Donald Trump’s executive order barring refugees and people from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the US is one of his most popular so far, according to a new poll from Morning Consult and Politico.
The order has a 55% approval rating among voters polled, with 35% saying they “strongly approve.” Thirty-eight percent of voters said they disapprove.
Opinions about the order fall along party lines — 82% of Republicans support the ban, and 65% of Democrats oppose it.
The only executive order more popular than the travel ban is the one revoking federal funding for so-called immigration sanctuary cities. That order has a 55% approval rating, with 33% disapproving.
The Morning Consult/Politico poll was conducted from February 2-4.
