Yesterday the Senate Judiciary Committee passed what they mindlessly named a “Sense of the Senate” resolution calling for no religious test for immigrants entering this country. The bipartisan vote was 16-4. It was offered up by Vermont Statist Senator Patrick “Leaky” Leahy ( D-Vt.) as an amendment to a bill, S.1318, the Nuclear Terrorism Conventions Implementation and Safety of Maritime Navigation Act of 2015.
The resolution was added by Leahy over the issue of Trump’s comments, with Democrat Senators repeatedly saying that excluding people on the basis of religion was intolerable and not what the country stood for. In supporting the bill, Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.) talked about Trump wanting to close down houses of worship, which is exactly what liberal France is doing. They have closed down three thus far, confiscating hundreds of weapons. But I’m sure the weapons were just for hunting… infidels.
And a funny thing happened on the way to the democrat and establishment republican talking points: In November CNS News, looked at data showing “only 53 Syrian Christian refugees have been allowed into America, compared to 2,098 Syrian Muslims.”
