House passes bill to bar Syrian refugees from U.S. without more vetting

WASHINGTON — The House passed a bill Thursday to halt the admission of Syrian refugees into the U.S. until they undergo the toughest vetting process ever developed for people fleeing a war-torn nation.

The legislation, passed by a vote of 289-137, was rushed through in response to last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris.

Nearly 50 Democrats voted for the bill, while a handful of Republicans voted against it.

The White House has issued a veto threat, saying that the bill would create significant delays and obstacles for refugees without providing meaningful additional security for Americans. The legislation still must be voted on by the Senate, where Democratic leaders say they will move to block the bill.

  1. I feel better already. Because they voted on things to defund Obama care too.

    That worked out great!

    Uh, wait… what? That was a symbolic thing that actually accomplished dick?

    No…. They wouldn’t engage in bullshit like that. They’re looking out for us, right? Right?

  2. every time the refugee argument comes up the question should be asked. ” how many will be living in the extra rooms at the White House? Her Thighness’s mostly empty NY home? at the Kennedy compound in Hianusport? How about Joey taking a few at the Veep residence or back in Del? One of nancy’s place I will let her pick DC or San Fran. If these are as well vetted as barry and his cronies are claiming there should be no securities issues at any of the places I listed above right?

  3. Under United States law, a refugee “does not include anyone who ordered, incited, assisted, or otherwise participated in the persecution of any person on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.”

    Therefore, all muslims must be refused refugee status. They constantly persecute anyone who is not a muslm.

  4. And when would we stop accepting Syrian refugee anyway? When there is peace in Syria? LOfuckingL!

    Send all the genius progressives over to Syria to fix the problem. Those assholes claim to know how to fix any problem. Let them prove it over there. Why force Syrians to leave their loved homeland, when we have the self-proclaimed peace experts who can fix all their problems for them?

    I’ll even pitch in a few bucks for a plane ticket.

  5. Isn’t anyone paying attention? From the Conservative Treehouse:

    Under the Paul Ryan approved bill -American Security Against Foreign Enemies (SAFE) Act of 2015– the FBI director would be required to certify the background investigation of each refugee from Iraq and Syria. And ONLY refugees from Iraq and Syria. So if you are Syrian and you walk into Turkey to begin applying for refugee status, presto, the bill doesn’t cover you.

    …the bill is largely meaningless and well beyond toothless. Senator Sessions (R-AL) noted refugees and migrants from nine different countries have been implicated in terrorism incidents over the past year. “Ignoring this reality, the American SAFE Act allows the president to continue to bring in as many refugees as he wants from anywhere in the world,” Sessions said previously.

    Perhaps the SAFE ACT would be better named the Kerry/Taylor You’ve Got A Friend Act. However, pay close attention to the GOP representatives who are “out front” selling the ruse. Pay attention to them, and pay attention to who they are endorsing:

    And just yesterday:

    Earlier today three Syrian males were stopped in Saint Maarten after a flight from Haiti, they were headed to the U.S. and carried fake Greek passports.

    In a similar but separate event today – Five Syrian males were stopped in Honduras, also carrying fake Greek passports, with intentions on crossing the Southern U.S. Mexico border.

    Better wake up folks…something wicked this way comes!!!
