The left is in total freak out mode over Trump’s new executive order on refugees. But another president did something similar in 2011 and they said nothing because it was a president they liked. As you may know, nothing is ever Obama’s fault.
The Federalist reported this in 2015:
The Obama Administration Stopped Processing Iraq Refugee Requests For 6 Months In 2011
Although the Obama administration currently refuses to temporarily pause its Syrian refugee resettlement program in the United States, the State Department in 2011 stopped processing Iraq refugee requests for six months after the Federal Bureau of Investigation uncovered evidence that several dozen terrorists from Iraq had infiltrated the United States via the refugee program…
President Barack Obama has thus far refused bipartisan calls to pause his administration’s Syrian refugee program, which many believe is likely to be exploited by terrorists seeking entry into the United States. The president has not explained how his administration can guarantee that no terrorists will be able to slip into the country by pretending to be refugees, as the Iraqi terrorists captured in Kentucky did in 2009.
Sean Davis wrote the article excerpted above and asked where the media was when Obama did this.
He got a response from a writer at the Washington Post which will blow your mind.
Look at this:
Obama banned refugees from Iraq for six months in 2011. For some reason there was no blue checkmark meltdown then. https://t.co/47jHl181eF

In other words, journalists were on vacation back then because OBAMA!
