GOP LAWMAKERS CALL FOR CURBS, FREEZE ON MUSLIM MIGRATION TO U.S.

Rep. Paul Ryan prepares a show vote on the nation’s importation of Muslim refugees,

The Conservative Caucus of Congress is going to vote on Paul Ryan’s draft legislation to reduce or stop granting visas and citizenships to immigrants of Muslim nation which are known to be involved in jihadist movements, reports BREITBART’s Julia Hahn.

Hahn cites Daniel Horowitz from the Conservative Review: “Instead of listening to their constituents and following the calls of 30 governors to shut down Islamic refugee resettlement, Republicans are about to pull the classic bait and switch: pass a phony standalone bill and decline to defund it in the budget bill…” Just like previous Affordable care Act, amnesty for illegal aliens, Environmental Protection Agency and Planned Parenthood issues, the situation will repeat itself. Republican politicos do not intend to actually stop the refugees from arriving as it has been prayed for by tens of governors, though this move could totally demolish Democrats at approaching elections; they would introduce this forgery bill and will never vote to defund it.

Senator Harry Reid admitted that the Ryan’s plan to create such standalone bill apart from any omnibus would definitely pay off while several conservative lawmakers see this plan as a show vote intended to distract attention from hypocrisy of the bill.

Senator Rand Paul has demanded to stop issuing visa for those nations which population is connected to jihadists. The estimated number of such nations comes to around 30. In Paul’s opinion the main way to ensure national safety is not to meddle into a world war, but to block arriving from those countries which are likely to perform attacks.

Representative Brian Babin, who similarly suggested a bill designed to stop Syrian immigrants’ relocation, voiced his support for Reid’s legislation, stressing that since he has sworn to protect Americans, he could not let the accident happen on his watch.

Representatives Randy Weber, Cynthia Lummis and Dave Brat unanimously declared their approval. Weber, in particular, shared his report from the Subcommittee on Immigration and National Interest regarding terrorism: in 2015 all 26 people in the U.S. convicted of terrorism were foreign-born, and it took only 8 foreign extremists to launch brutal attacks in Paris.  Another danger present sanctuary cities that are obliged to accept refugees without testing their backgrounds, and if the situation unveils at the present rates, America is likely to become a sanctuary country.

Representative Steve King asserts: “I think it’s the right thing to do. We should be looking at this thing culturally. And where is all of this venom coming from? It’s coming from people who are migrating in from the Middle East and 90-something percent of them are Muslim and if you look at a map of the world on where there have been terrorist attacks, you can look around Europe and see and find people who are committing terrorist attacks, they’re almost exclusively Muslim.”

Representative Raul Labrador, who played a significant role in Paul Ryan’s elections, is however opposing Ryan’s legislation. Labrador is a member of the House Freedom Caucus and advocates for large-scale immigration.

More than 90% of Republican affiliates wish to reduce immigration growth, 65% of conservative voters state that no more than zero Muslim immigrants should be allowed into the U.S., as reported by Rasmussen and Pew research centers.

As reported by the Center for Immigration Studies, out of 280,000 Muslim immigrants 100,000 are granted with a permanent visa, more than 100,000 are represented by temporary students and workers and around 40,000 have arrived to the country as refugees.

Report issued by Equality Now demonstrates that uncontrolled resettlement of Muslim immigrants results in rocketing numbers of girls who are at risk of Female Genital Mutilation. Arabic and Urdu languages have become fastest-growing foreign languages in the U.S. Among other immigration blocs Muslim one is the fastest growing. These issues come out in problems of migrants’ integration.

Minnesota, which hosts the largest Somali population in the U.S., has troubles resisting extremist recruiting. Recently Somalian inhabitants with American citizenship have been trying to join Islamic State forces and to fight among terrorists. Dearborn, MI, has the 2nd highest number of people on the federal terrorist watch list.

“Pew Research has estimated that immigration will cause the population of U.S. Muslims to more than double over the next two decades—from 2.6 million in 2010 to 6.2 million in 2030. This demographic change is almost entirely the product of legal admissions– that is, it is a formal policy of the federal government adopted by Congress”, concludes Hahn.

 

EXPERT OPINION

Most Republican Representatives Betray Their Voters by Supporting Obama’s Plan to Allow Syrian Refugees to Enter the United States Sen. Rand Paul has been a lone voice of sanity. Republican representatives tend to take a strongly uncompromising line when it comes to attacking Syria, Iran or Iraq. It is therefore more than a little surprising that a majority of Republicans in Congress do not plan to vote against Obama’s refugee settlement plan that will fund the acceptance of 10,000 Syrian refugees and was cunningly tied to the budget. Obama’s plan does not make much sense when one considers that the US already has a bitter experience with Muslim migrants. 26 foreign-born Muslims reside in the United States were convicted of involvement in terrorism in 2015. Minnesota is witnessing a surge of recruitment to jihadist groups, and Dearborn, Michigan is under the FBI’s watch list. But most Republican representatives said they would support Obama’s plan and only offered a standalone bill, brought fourth by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC), that will demand that the US government vet Muslim refugees before they enter. But, needless to say, radical Muslims who enter the US probably do not plan to admit that they are members of the Islamic State. House Speaker Ryan Paul (R-WI) not only supports allowing in refugees from the Middle East, but also said that Christian refugees will not be given a preference and that there will be no religious test. Why would Republicans support Obama in a plan that is likely to endanger the lives of American citizens? They are not doing so because of their constituents, since most Republicans and Conservative voters oppose giving refugees from the Middle East a green light to enter the country. They could have made a big issue out of Obama’s refugee resettlement plan but are not doing so. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), has gone against the flow and displayed leadership by saying that he will oppose giving visas to Muslims from 30 countries where Islamic terrorism is prevalent. “The interesting thing about this is people are talking about world-wide war to stop this and you would think the first thing you would do is stop people from coming to our country,” he said.

This is real The United States is a country that is essentially populated by immigrants. Mechanisms of patriotism turned the United States into a citizen factory that has been taking in outsiders, including Muslim immigrants, and turning them into Americans for centuries. Muslims are the fastest growing group of immigrants. According to Pew Research, only 11 percent of Muslim Americans identify as Republican or leaning-Republican, making them one of the most reliable Democrat voting blocs in the country. So Paul Ryan’s draft legislation to reduce or stop granting visas and citizenships to immigrants of Muslim nations which are known to be involved in Jihadist movements, may be part of political strategy aimed at reducing growth of Democrat's electoral base.Despite hidden political strategies behind Ryan's draft legislation, to stop the Jihadists from arriving is the right thing to do.
