As a result of the war and unrest in Syria, hundreds of thousands of refugees are fleeing that country.
They’re flooding into Europe.
Obama has given the approval for 10,000 Syrian refugees to enter the United States.
But there’s one problem:
The FBI claims it’s impossible to adequately screen and check out the backgrounds of those Syrian refugees who will be entering the United States:
FBI Director James Comey on Wednesday told Congress that the federal government cannot conduct thorough checks on all of the coming influx of 10,000 refugees from Syria.
Appearing before the House Committee on Homeland Security, Comey said Syrians who aren’t already in the FBI’s database are unknown to the agency, meaning their backgrounds cannot be adequately scoured for a risk of terrorism.
‘We can only query against that which we have collected,’ Comey told the committee under questioning.
‘So if someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interest reflected in our database, we can query our database until the cows come home, but there will be nothing show up because we have no record of them.
Remind me again why we have The Patriot Act and the Department of Homeland Security.
So, the FBI and DHS spy on American citizens and know all our movements, but they can’t figure out how to vet potential Islamic terrorist threats who mingle among the Syrian refugees?
If so, how about we just say no?
