Democrats are constantly downplaying the fact that ISIS members have vowed to enter the US by infiltrating the refugee population. In fact, many of them go on TV and insist that refugees commit less crimes than citizens.
FBI Director James Comey just threw some water on the left’s arguments.
The Washington Examiner reports:
FBI’s Comey: 15% of terrorists came to US as refugees, at least 300
The FBI has revealed that at least 15 percent of the agency’s terrorism investigations focus on immigrants who arrived as refugees, vetted by groups like the United Nations.
Out of more than 2,000 “violent extremist investigations,” FBI Director Jim Comey, “about 300 of them are people who came to the United States as refugees.”
The testimony was uncovered by the Center for Immigration Studies from the long session Comey had in the Senate last week to mostly discuss the 2016 presidential election.
So 15 percent of the FBI’s terrorism cases are refugees — far more than their share of the immigrant population, let alone the general population. And that denominator of 2,000 presumably includes people with no immigration nexus at all — skinheads, antifa, Klan, environmental and animal rights extremists, et al. So the refugee share of immigration-related terrorism investigations is more than 15 percent, perhaps much more.
In other words, Trump was right again.
The American people have common sense. We’re a generous nation but bringing in a flood of unvetted refugees isn’t logical. In fact, it’s dangerous.
