Who Have Harmed the US More, Refugees or Domestic Terrorists? By Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
As Congress continues to debate two bills aimed specifically against Syrian refugees, H.R. 4038, which would slow down the already tiny trickle of such refugees by imposing cumbersome additional layers of bureaucracy; and S.2284, which would impose a total (temporary) moratorium on admissions, while giving Congress a veto power over any future favorable determination by US security officials regarding Syrian refugees, it is instructive to see who have posed the greater danger of terrorism to America historically, refugees, or domestic attackers.

Huffington Post offers an answer to this question in its November 30 article: Planned Parenthood Shooter Killed More Than Any Supposed Refugee Terrorist.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/...b072e9d1c2e82a

Huffpost writes:

"Robert Dear, the accused gunman at Planned Parenthood, actually took more lives than all the refugees have done in terrorist attacks since 1980, when the current federal process for settling foreigners on humanitarian grounds was put in place by the Refugee Act.

No refugee admitted to this country in the 35 years since then has carried out a domestic terrorist plot, according to immigration expert David Bier [an analyst at the libertarian Niskanen Center]."​

This is something that the same politicians who are trying to make scapegoats of Syrian refugees might want to consider before inciting any more people to commit violence against US abortion clinics.

(Just as a footnote, there is a widespread misconception that the two Boston Marathon bombers were refugees. This is not the case. Their father was granted political asylum after arrival in the US - an entirely different process. According to all available evidence, the children were radicalized in the United States after they grew up. See Huffington Post: The Boston Bombers Were Not Refugees - Neither Was the Paris Attacker - November 18 - I do not have the link; please use Google.)

    Oh my, I see that the "refugee" resettlement industry is pulling all the stops, as they see their capability to leech on taxpayers $$$ is endangered. That is expected. Tell me, however. These Syrian "refugees" are being resettled to the US from the refugee camps outside Syria, where their life is not threatened by ISIS or Assad anymore. They are not starving etc. So, why should US taxpayers pay for their resettlement here? I see only one "reason" for that - so more immigration lawyers and "refugee" resettlement industry businessmen can continue their luxurious lifestyle at the expense of already struggling US taxpayers.

    By the way, Roger, you might want to check statistics on how many refugees are deported for violent crimes annually

    Do you have statistics on the number of refugees deported for violent crimes annually? I don't know if those are available. My guess would be not very many, but I don't claim to have an answer.

    Well Roger,

    Yes, there is statistics. I am really short on time now so I cannot provide detailed analysis. However, at the first glance you seem to be right. Refugees from the middle east are not even nearly in the top of deportees for violent crimes. You win this one Roger. I'm sure you will be able to find this statistics yourself
