US will take 10,000 Syrian Refugees

And so it begins: “BREAKING: Despite Terrorism Concerns, U.S. To Accept 10,000 Syrian Refugees”.

Remember the other day when Democratic presidential candidate, Martin O’Malley, urged for the US to take 65,000 Syrian refugees?  Well, that number didn’t come out of thin air – that is the number the UN wants the US to take.  Don’t be surprised if the Obama administration drastically increases this number, after they set the “narrative” in motion to sell this to the American public.   Expect more heart-wrenching stories of women and children in desperate situations, which won’t be hard to find.  There really are desperate refugees fleeing from Syria, but there are plenty from all over the region who have now become “Syrian” to gain entry into Europe.

    Don’t be surprised if the Obama administration drastically increases this number, after they set the “narrative” in motion to sell this to the American public.

    Well if history is any example the number of Somalis (as refugees) were to number 4500.

    That 4500 went to 85,000 eligible – I guess we shall see.

    I haven’t seen or heard of any kind of vetting process to be used, either.
