Probably only a matter of time as we all know, Obama of course doesn’t see it that way….
GOP presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told “Fox News Sunday” that despite what could be up to a three-year vetting process for Syrian refugees before being allowed into the U.S., that won’t deter an ISIS operative, because “the United States is the ultimate prize in their mind.”
“The United States is the ultimate prize in their mind. If ISIS is able to conduct a successful operation in the U.S., or I believe even Canada for that matter, of the scale of what you saw in Paris, it would be an enormous bonanza for them in terms of funding, but also recruits from all over the world, that would be a huge messaging win for ISIS, and continue to grow their movement,” Rubio said.
The House voted overwhelmingly last week for a bill that would require the FBI conduct new background checks and for three high-ranking U.S. officials to sign off before refugees from Iraq and Syria can come into the United States.
“You say you want to block the admittance of any Syrian refugees, because you say, quite frankly, we don’t have the information, the intel, the database to vet them properly. Does that mean you will vote against the bill that was passed by the House this week overwhelmingly which would allow Syrian refugees into the country but under tightened security?” Fox News’ Chris Wallace asked Rubio.
“No, my argument is that we can’t allow anyone into this country that we can’t vet, and I believe that the vast majority of refugees that are trying to come here are people we will not be able to vet. Does commonsense still apply? Of course, it does,” Rubio said.
“A 5-year-old orphan, a 90-year-old widow, and well-known Chaldean priest, these are obviously commonsense applications, and you can clearly vet them just by commonsense, but what about someone who doesn’t fit that profile?” he asked.
“There is no reliable database that we can rely on. There is no existing government institution in their home country that we can call up and run them against. We cannot vet most of these people,” Rubio said.
Rubio said the House bill is “an appropriate response.”
“But I don’t understand, because the House bill isn’t going to create the databases that you say aren’t there,” Wallace said.
