Well, my man Ted Cruz, who has now vaulted past Marco Rubio into third place in the latest Fox News poll, has echoed the thoughts of many of us right thinking Americans. He said in response to Obama’s continued want to bring jihadists, I mean refugees, to the U.S.: “I have to say particularly in light of what happened in Paris, that’s nothing short of lunacy.”
But not so fast Ted. Didn’t you hear – all these thousands of jihadists, I mean refugees, will be fully vetted.
But really – what’s a vetting? Nadal Hassan, the Fort Hood shooter, was a major in the Army. Who among us has gone through more thorough vetting than those in the military? Yet Hassan somehow escaped the scrutiny of military vetting. Some (me) would say purposely, all in the name of political correctness, which, as it did, always ends in disaster.
That being said, who believes the vetting procedure of these Syrian refugees will be more stringent than that of Hassan?
How well was Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez vetted? Remember him – the illegal alien monster who gunned down Kate Steinle in cold blood, in broad daylight, in front of her father. He was deported 5 times and had used 30 aliases. I guess the vetting process really broke down in his case.
The fact is, we don’t vet illegals. We can’t vet illegals. What kind of electronic, “biometric” trail will you find on some destitute itinerant farm hand from nowhere Guatemala? Of course – not a single thing. And the same will go for most of the “refugees” from Syria. We are to take the word of the refugee and the U.N.
