TOO MUCH! Obama and Kerry Now Say U.S. Will Take in 85,000 Syrian Refugees

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry announced Sunday that the United States would significantly increase the number of worldwide migrants it takes in over the next two years.

Wait a minute! Something stinks, and it smells like Barack Obama and John Kerry!

Just a couple of weeks ago, Obama said he wanted only 10K Syrian refugees┬áin the United States next year. Now Kerry says 85,000? Where’s the media on this?

The U.S. will accept 85,000 refugees from around the world next year, up from 70,000, and that total would rise to 100,000 in 2017, Kerry said at a news conference with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier after they discussed the mass migration of Syrians fleeing their civil war.

We all could spend days talking about this one story. But the problem is much bigger than this. We the people have lost control of our government. Can we get it back?

This refugee problem is the result of President Obama and his allies’ indecisive action in the Middle East. I fully support the refugee program, but allowing 85,000 refugees to settle in the U.S.? We already have massive problems with illegal migration, unemployment, education, and welfare benefits. Will DHS be able to comprehensively check the refugees’ background?

So, in addition to being compassionate about the plight of undocumented migrants, we now have to support refugees from countries that don’t like us and may, in fact, be something of a threat to our national security.


Will they be able to weed out terrorists and criminals from the refugees? We have already experienced home-grown terrorists. Can we afford imported terrorists?

How about if we spend that money and compassion to help our homeless veterans and those that need medical care.

I’ve always believed that charity starts at home, but it seems that we have ignored the plight of our citizens and abandoned those that need our help the most here at home.
