Well, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah knows his time is short and he is probably more dangerous at this point than the entire eight years previous. Reports are now coming forward that he is attempting to fast track 1,800 Muslim migrants into the US that were rejected by Australia as illegal aliens.
Congress only learned of the deal through media reports two weeks ago and, according to a letter sent to administration officials by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., the deal is not only a matter of grave national security concern, but it could be illegal.
That's because it amounts to an international treaty that Secretary of State John Kerry negotiated without consulting or notifying Congress according to Article II, Section II of the U.S. Constitution, according to the letter, sent by the two lawmakers Nov. 22 to Kerry and DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson.
Nearly 2,500 of them were interdicted off the coast of Australia in 2013 in accordance with that country's policy of not accepting any of the wave of "refugees" streaming out of the Middle East. Unlike Europe, Australia effectively said "no" to the United Nations' plan to open up Western democracies for millions of refugees fleeing not only the Syrian civil war but conflicts in Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan and even countries like Pakistan that are not at war. Germany alone has accepted 1.5 million Muslim refugees and subjected itself to thousands of sexual assaults on its women and girls.
But migrants who tried to get to Australia did not find a welcome mat. They were rescued by the Australian coast guard from their unsafe vessels and taken to off-shore camps on the Islands of Papua New Guinea and Nauru, where they have remained ever since. The United Nations stepped in and is looking for countries that will take the asylum seekers.
The U.N. found a taker in the Obama administration. Kerry confirmed he had reached a deal to take an undetermined number of the 2,465 aliens for permanent resettlement in the United States. Goodlatte and Grassley said they have since found out that up to 1,800 of the boat people could end up being distributed to U.S. cities and towns. But very little information has been released about the aliens or how many will end up in which American cities.
The letter by representatives read in part:
"This situation is concerning for many reasons. First, your departments negotiated an international agreement regarding refugees without consulting or notifying Congress. Such information was not disclosed to Congress during the annual refugee consultation that occurred on September 13, 2016, even though your staff confirmed that the agreement had, at the time, been negotiated 'for months.' Second, the agreement and the number of refugees to be resettled has been deemed by your departments as classified, thus the American people are left in the dark as to the rationale for this agreement. Third, the individuals who will be resettled are coming from countries of national security concern. In fact, two of the countries are officially designated by the State Department to be State Sponsors of Terrorism. Finally, it begs the question why Australia and other countries refuse to admit these individuals, what other countries are doing to help alleviate the situation, what kind of precedent this sets for future refugees interdicted at sea by Australian forces and prevented from entering Australia, and how a similar situation will be prevented in the future."
Among the countries these "asylum seekers" are coming from are:
- Sri Lanka
Some believe that the representatives' letter demonstrates that Donald Trump's victory has given them a backbone after they sat back and allowed Obama to dump Muslims in cities throughout the US. Ann Corcoran writes at Refugee Resettlement Watch, "There are many important concerns in this letter, but one issue in particular caught my eye — the idea of setting a precedent which is something I've been hammering for years."
She has also referenced the fact that we have been taking in Liybans and Somalis who arrived on the island of Malta.
"Surely these people are undocumented with only their personal stories to rely on," Corcoran says. "But we have been transforming them into refugees and placing them in your American towns ever since the Bush Administration."
"These are Europe's illegal aliens and not our concern," she added. "Just as this new batch is Australia's problem."
"Congress and the new president can quickly plug this hole, and we must stop these foolish 'deals' wherever they are occurring."
The problem with deals in the political realm is that the American people are often on the losing end. While Corcoran says that a deal implies that we will get something for taking them in, she confesses, "What we get is never clear."
I can clarify for everyone. What we get by taking these people in is a growth in Muslims in this country over the next generation because Christians have become saltless and not advancing the Gospel of Christ and calling men and women to repentance and faith, as did the prophets, Jesus and the apostles. All we are doing is inviting a war in our country, one that our children will surely have to fight.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
