And the toll continues to climb.
What did Belgium do to deserve this?
Of course, everyone knows it's all the fault of Israel and the Jews.
President Obama wants to allow 10,000? 20,000 Muslim refugees to enter the U.S. He promises they will be fully vetted. By whom? What percentage will be terrorists who managed to fool the Americans. After all, how many Americans - other than Muslims - speak any Arabic variation? (The State Department could ask Jews kicked out of Muslim-dominated countries to interrogate the refugees, but that would not be "politically correct.")
Maybe Donald Trump is correct: place a moratorium on Muslim "visitors" to the U.S. Trump did not, contrary to liberal media reports, suggest banning all Muslims from entering the U.S.. For a moment consider Obama's plan that would, in effect - if vetting is indeed thorough - defer Muslim entry for some time, thereby putting a (gasp) moratorium on Muslim entry.
Will the Muslim refugees be like the Cuban refugees who came to the U.S. just until they could over-throw the Cuban government and return to Cuba? They no longer talk about going back. Will the Muslim refugees be like the Cuban refugees who refuse to be resettled anyplace but South Florida - they won a court case to prevent relocation to the plains states. "Too cold."
How will the U.S. track the refugees once on U.S. soil? The INS can't keep track of the illegal immigrants supposedly in its custody now. Add another 10,000 or 20,000 Muslims - a percentage of whom will be terrorists and the majority of the others will keep their secret, the proof is in Belgium and France and… - how can anyone expect the INS to keep track of the refugees?
Put them into camps.
That's not "PC." That's not humane.
Never mind that Franklin Roosevelt's liberal Democratic government "interned" thousands of Americans of Japanese descent for the crime of being different. If the U.S. was afraid they would be loyal to Imperial Japan, why didn't it "intern" Americans of German and Austrian descent who might be loyal to the nazi murderers?
- The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services may have processed as many as 30,000 citizenship applications in 2005 without reviewing critical background files, thousands of which have been lost, according to a new report from the Government Accountability Office.
A February 2013 release of ICE detainees with criminal records notes that DHS disclosed that as part of a larger release, it freed 622 detainees with criminal records (including 32 with multiple felony convictions). Upon realizing the offenses DHS apprehended 24 of the 32 detainees with felony convictions. However, eight remain unaccounted for.
Perhaps the refugees could be housed on a former military base, one closed by the BRAC. The bases have all the facilities necessary for temporary housing of singles and couples, with schools, medical facilities, dining halls - all certainly at least as good as the refugee had in the refugee's home country. Perhaps the best place for the refugees is Midway Island Naval Air Station. Other good options include Chanute Air Force Base, US Army Fort Sheridan, and US Navy Glenview Naval Air Station, all in Obama's home state of Illinois.
Since Detroit already has the largest Muslim population in the U.S., perhaps refugees could be resettled in other Michigan towns where bases were shuttered: Oscoda (Wurtsmith Air Force Base) and Gwinn (K I Sawyer AFB). By the way, Washington D.C. has the nation's second largest Muslim concentration.
Stockton CA once housed a German POW camp; the locals made the prisoners feel at home. When the movie Tora! Tora! Tora! played there, cheers went up when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. (I was in the theater at the time.) Maybe Stockton's good citizens would be willing to welcome Muslim refugees.
