Despite the American public exhibiting strong opposition to settling refugees from Syria here, and in spite of observing what has happened in other parts of the world where the refugees have “settled”, Obama remains convinced this will happen.
By the end of September, 10,000 refugees will be placed in various locations throughout the United States. It does not seem as though he is overly concerned that this will cause any disruption or potentially cause riots or worse, and has apparently taken actions to speed things along.
Obama says the goal he set last year has been challenging, partly because of the need to assure the U.S. public that refugees are being thoroughly checked out.
Obama says accepting Syrian refugees is “the right thing to do” because they are victims of terrorism, violence and suffering caused by Syrian President Bashar Assad
It is a bit difficult to believe that effective investigation into the character and criminal history can be conducted, when one of the biggest arguments Obama uses against guns is that background checks don’t work. Thank you, Obama, for forcing one more unwanted thing down the throats of the American people.
