Our immigration crisis keeps getting worse and I’m over here asking, “Is Trump in office yet?”
The FBI said this week at yet another congressional hearing said that there is no way to truly vet each and every refugee coming from terrorist laden Syria during their civil war exodus.
The FBI warned, again, that accepting any of these refugees poses a threat to American lives as this might let terrorists slip through the cracks.
The debate about the security risk posed by Syrian refugees has been raging for months between two sectors of the federal government – the FBI headed by James Comey and the State Department headed by John Kerry.
On Wednesday, Comey testified before Congress. Speaking before the House Homeland SecurityCommittee, Comey said it was not possible for the U.S. to properly vet the Syrian refugees because there are no data points that would show the past activity of the vast majority of Syrians.
‘The challenge we’re all talking about is that, we can only query against that (data) which we have collected,’ Comey said. ‘And 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 would be nothing show up because we have no record on it.’
Incredibly valid points. Points that should be heeded by our government and the Obama administration, but I’m nearly positive they won’t be.
