Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Obama Admin Doubling Down to Prevent Muslim Refugees From Reaching US

Rate this Entry


Via Immigration Lawyer Bryan Johnson:

In an interview with Fox News, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson admitted that the Obama administration views refugees seeking asylum from the Middle East and Africa as more of a threat to the U.S. homeland than other (i.e. non-muslims) refugees seeking asylum:

"In terms of the Southwest border, I just recently asked for them to focus on immigrants coming illegally from other hemispheres, from the Middle East and so forth, to detect them and block them before they even get to the homeland, working with governments in South America, Central America to prevent that from happening,"

He went on:

"You're correct that we're seeing illegal migrants coming from Africa, coming from the Middle East," Johnson told host Chris Wallace. "And we're doubling down on preventing that happening before they even reach the Southwest border."

The Obama administration's actions are a carbon copy of what Donald Trump has stated in the past on refugees from Syria:

"We have no idea who these people are, we are the worst when it comes to paperwork," Trump said Monday on CNBC. "This could be one of the great Trojan horses."

"We cannot let them into this country, period," Trump said Monday. "Our country has tremendous problems. We can't have another problem."
