Despite the fact that Obama and the mainstream media has continually claimed that the refugees are being heavily “vetted”, the fact remains that most security officials have gone on the record with their belief that actually vetting the refugees is essentially impossible due to the breakdown of society in Syria.

The following list, which only includes the year 2015, completely destroys the liberal narrative that no terrorists are coming into the country along with the actual refugees.

Keep in mind that the President absolutely HAS to know about these 12 cases yet still refuses to protect the American people, instead opting to shame any citizen who expresses worry about the terror threats posed by incoming refugees.

Dozens of refugees have been found to be terrorists in the United States, 12 discovered just last year.

TIL 12 = dozens. So twelve out of what 85,000 or 0.0141%.

And yet, everyone will still label Trump a "xenophobe" or "racist" for insisting on a temporary ban on Muslim immigrants until we fix our crappy vetting procedures.

Those are just the ones we know of. How many others are flying under the radar, waiting to strike?

Why are we willingly allowing this to enter the country?

Until it's a family member of yours that's been killed or maimed. All it takes is a truck.

Agreed.

A complete unknown. I seem to recall that there were a number of people that assured the nation that the vetting procedures were top rate, and wouldn't allow this to happen. Where are they now to take the responsibility and accountability?
The flaw in you thinking here is that you think people don't change. It's possible to be vetted, come the country and THEN become radicalized. Anyways... being that they were arrested means to me that it's working.

Yeah, as if the US is a hot bed of radicalization. :lamo

You postulate seems hardly believable. Occam's Razor seems to tip more in favor of they arrive already radicalized, or at least with a predisposition to radicalization that better vetting may ferret out before hand.

Don't know if you heard of these brand new inventions called "phones" and "internet" where communications world wide can happen INSTANTLY! Pretty amazing stuff. You should check them out.

The flaw in your thinking, if that you think that law enforcement catches 100% of criminals. 210,000 murders are classified as active unsolved cases in the US.

The majority of migrant terrorists seem to be how you described, cases of immigrants or refugees who became radicalized in the West. Such as Bouhlel in Nice, France 5 days ago.

Wow... that would be flawed thinking. Of course I've never thought that soooo... have fun with your strawman!

Cool story bro. Thought we were talking about America but... apparently it's your game so move the goal-posts and your straw man to where ever you wish.

Nothing I posted addressed that. Let me say again, in case you missed it, it's more likely that the refugees are arriving either radicalized or a predisposition to becoming radicalized which the vetting isn't identifying. The Internet and cell phones may or may not complete their radicalization. I made no guesses about that.

Do try to read and pay attention.

Look, the situation is a ticking time bomb. The ways that an Islamic terrorist can come to fruition is not limited to a single scenario.

Omar Mateen's father was granted asylum in the 1980's, and that fateful decision produced a terrorist who would end up killing 50 people, 30 years later.

How many natural born citizens are doing the same?

Is there any vetting process that would satisfy you? If so, give us details.

If law enforcement doesn't catch 100% of criminals why are we expecting ICE to do it?

There isn't a vetting process that will work with refugees from Syria, Iraq, Somalia... that's the point.

Our Intel can't simply contact foreign governments in the Mideast and get information about who these people are, like we can with the UK or Germany.

So we rely on what refugees say about themselves during interviews. There's no way that that constitutes a vetting process.

Right, so people who say "halt Muslim immigration until we figure out the vetting process" are really saying "permanently ban immigration via a religious test." So instead of being full of ****, they should admit what they really believe.

Or, perhaps, "permanently ban all immigration" because you can't really be sure on anybody, can you?

Actually that is the very definition of xenophobe. Irrational fear of ...

when 0.0014% is the threat that you based your entire foreign policy on, meanwhile you ignore the other causes and threats that kill thousands and thousands of Americans.

You can not be any more xenophobe than that.

A person can't buy car insurance in the US without a SS number that proves who they are, and gives the insurance company knowledge about what kind of person you are.

Yet you think it's a good idea to allow people who aren't adequately screened into the country?

Would you trust a doctor to perform surgery on you, without doing some research as far as his medical history?

But you've said there isn't a vetting process that would satisfy you. "Adequately screened" is a red herring because, to you, there's no such thing for Muslims. Your stance isn't "no Muslims until we screen properly." Your stance is actually "no Muslims ever." So man up and say it. You support a permanent ban on all Muslim immigration.

So we should never allow anyone into our country ever. Brilliant plan.
