    Reports that a man accused of sexual assaults on six Edmonton teenage girls was a Syrian refugee have ignited a firestorm of reaction, from anti-immigration diatribes to criticism about how the media dealt with the story. Groups that work with refugees in the city have been inundated with calls and texts over the past 24 hours, some from people calling for an end to the refugee program and others from refugees themselves apologizing on behalf of their community. Erick Ambtman, executive director of the Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers, said his organization received a message on Twitter from a white...

    German authorities arrest a Syrian man who allegedly asked the ISIS to fund an attack using explosives-packed vehicles. German authorities said Monday that police had arrested a Syrian man who had allegedly asked the Islamic State (ISIS) jihadist group to fund an attack using explosives-packed vehicles, AFP reported. The unemployed 38-year-old with refugee status had urged an ISIS contact via mobile phone message service Telegram to send him 180,000 euros ($188,000), prosecutors said. Police commandos raided the suspect's apartment in Saarbruecken near the French border around 2:00 a.m. (0300 GMT) on Saturday, New Year's Eve. He was detained before being...

    Obama-Trudeau policy of opening doors widely to Muslim refugees, while allowing hardly a crack to open for the Christian and Yazidi victims of jihadi-inspired genocide, is risky, to be sure. It is also immoral The Obama administration is rapidly accelerating its admission and resettlement of Syrian refugees. The administration is well on its way to meeting its target of taking 10,000 Syrians into the country by the end of the current fiscal year on September 30th. In the first five months of 2016, 2,099 Syrian refugees have been admitted, compared with 2,192 for the whole of 2015, according to a...

    Indiana unconstitutionally discriminated against Syrian refugees by freezing federal funds that were supposed to help fleeing families resettle in the state, a federal judge has ruled. The decision is the latest legal setback for state efforts to resist plans by the Obama administration to bring in thousands of Syrian refugees fleeing the civil war in that country. According to a lawyer involved, it marks the first time a court has ruled that a state opposing the resettlement process violated the U.S. Constitution. In other cases, like one Texas, states have sued to block Syrians from moving into their borders. Law...

    A Leader-for Change On March 17, 1980, after consulting with his daughter Amy James Earl Carter, President of the United States and fearless bunny rabbit fighter, signed into law the United States Refugee Act of 1980 which implemented a number of provisions set down by the United Nations. Limits on the numbers of refugees admitted per fiscal year were raised to 50,000 from 17,000 and special provisions were put in place for ‚Äúemergency‚ÄĚ resettlement. Also, the definition of what constitutes a refugee was altered so as to comport with U.N. opinions on the subject. Refugees were now defined as: ‚Äúowing...

    The Hayride via Gateway Pundit ^ | 11/19/15 | Jim Hoft
    Liberals continue to tell us the "vetting process" for refugees is under control. They insist the federal government is monitoring every Syrian once they make it to America. But, of course, that's a total fallacy. Earlier this week a Syrian refugee went missing in Louisiana. The refugee was in the process of resettling in the Baton Rouge area when he went missing. As The Hayride reported, there are seven Syrian refugees in Kenner, Louisiana and six more were sent to the New Orleans area. Louisiana state officials heard about the missing Syrian refugee from the media, and not the Obama...

    I simply love Ted Cruz! His statement after the Paris attacks is a good example of why I feel that way. If you are a terrorist, you are an enemy of America and that will sign your death warrant. That is exactly the right attitude. Obama has since called the eight Paris attacks that left 127 dead terrorism, but not once did he mention radical Islam. Not once. Now, more than ever, Americans are thanking our Founding Fathers for the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms. Everyone out there should be trained and packing. You should up your...

    Senator Ted Cruz is not a fan of importing potentially hundreds of thousands of Muslims to America, referring to the idea as "absolute lunacy" during a Q&A session at the Iowa Grassroots Coalition Candidate Honest Assessment Summit on Saturday...."With regard to the the Syrian refugees, I think Obama's proposal to accept tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of Syrian Muslim refugees is absolute lunacy," Cruz said in response to a question from the audience. "...The Director of National Intelligence has told us it's very likely that among those refugees going into Europe are a substantial number of ISIS terrorists,"...
