NO JOHN KERRY: WE DON'T WANT 10,000 SYRIAN REFUGEES
September 18, 2015
Secretary of State John Kerry announced that Barack Obama wants to import 10,000 Syrian Muslim refugees into the United States starting next year. That’s on top of 1.2 million legal immigrants we already tolerate annually. That’s on top of the 500,000 to 700,000 illegal aliens violating our borders annually.
I talked to Roy Beck, executive director: www.NumbersUSA.org
Exactly why do we not want more Syrian immigrants? How can we stop it as ordinary citizens? What will it mean in the long term? How can we afford it with our $18 trillion debt? How can we withstand it with 10 million unemployed Americans and millions of legal immigrants already here living on welfare as a way of life?
“The United States should not be resettling what would be only a tiny fraction of the current flow of refugees and migrants from the other side of the world,” said Beck. “Instead, we should join other nations in providing for the greatest comfort to the greatest number of people fleeing their destabilized countries. By long experience, the United Nations has primarily recommended safe, internationally supervised camps in adjoining countries, or at least the same region, so refugees can eventually more easily move back home.
“Offers of resettlement on other continents might at first seem the humanitarian response. But that can easily cause far more suffering, both to migrants themselves and to receiving communities, which risk their own destabilization. The United States certainly should not add to the enticements for people to risk their lives and those of their children through dangerous travel to obtain what only a few can be offered.
“Here at home, nearly 500,000 refugees have been placed into local American communities through federal resettlement programs since 2009. We have been taking about 70 percent of all the refugees resettled by the United Nations each year. There has been little to assure us that these programs are capable of screening out present and future criminals and terrorists who often exploit the chaos of emergency migrations.
“And the programs show little regard for the multiple long-term fiscal costs imposed on the local receiving communities that already are suffering from the same depressed wages and low labor force participation rates as the rest of the United States.
“Rather than taking in a new wave of refugees, our government should be considering enacting the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act (H.R. 3314) introduced by U.S. Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas). It would place an immediate suspension on the resettlement programs until the Government Accountability Office completes a thorough examination of the full costs on local, state and federal governments. And as Babin said introducing the bill last month, the suspension "gives an opportunity to examine potential national security issues related to entry and resettlement, particularly as federal law enforcement officials are increasingly concerned about home-grown terrorists."

Dear Senator or House Representative (his or her name)
I hope you will cosponsor H.R. 3314, the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act, which requires the government to temporary halt refugee resettlement while the GAO analyzes the full cost and impacts of resettlement. Admitting large numbers of refugees may seem the most humanitarian option, but doing so can have negative consequences for refugees and host American communities alike.
It is understandable for people of faith and conscience to want to help those fleeing the world's trouble spots. However, doing so is not advised by the United Nations and can cause long-term problems for both the host communities and the refugees themselves. The UN recommends safe, internationally supervised camps in adjoining countries, or at least the same region, so refugees can eventually more easily move back home.
Democratic Senator Tim Kaine also took a similar stance to the Syrian conflict:
"Why not create that safe zone in Syria so people don't have to leave their country. They would rather stay there if we can guarantee safety and basic comforts of food, shelter and medical care.... If we can create that, then people will come back."
The impact of refugee resettlement on American communities is less clear, but just as important. H.R. 3314, the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act, would temporarily halt refugee resettlement until the GAO can complete a thorough examination of the full costs on local, state and federal governments.
I urge you to cosponsor H.R. 3314 and help make sure America's refugee policies are beneficial to refugees and American communities alike.

Definition of slogan: "Immigration Shutdown Now means the American people want a total shutdown on all legal and illegal immigration. That means we want all illegal immigration stopped by arresting, prosecuting and jailing employers of illegal aliens. We deport all illegal aliens by taking their jobs away and as we catch them. We want English mandated as our national language. We demand a cessation of Muslim immigration in order to protect our culture, language and way of life. We can’t save the world but we can destroy our civilization. We demand a stable population that allows everyone to live, work and thrive into the 21st century. Especially our children." FHW
