    The Federalist ^ | November 18, 2020 | Willis L. Krumholz
    One factor in a bunch of Americans opting for Donald Trump in 2016 was his promise not to start a new war in the Middle East — but the D.C. establishment secretly kept troops in Syria, and lied about it to the president.Defense One, a subsidiary of The Atlantic, came out with a story last week about a man named Jim Jeffrey. If you haven’t heard of him, don’t feel bad, but he’s pretty important in Washington, D.C. Under his fancy title, he’s been appointed to oversee the U.S. fight against ISIS and what are supposed to be the limited...
  • Bulgaria Tightens Control On Turkey Border To Prevent Migrant Inflow

    Bulgaria says it is tightening security along its border with Turkey to prevent an inflow of illegal migrants amid reports that Ankara may be relaxing its border controls to allow Syrian refugees to enter the European Union. "Forces have already been deployed at the border and measures to protect the maritime border have been intensified," Prime Minister Boyko Borisov said on February 28 during a government meeting. Amid an escalation of the Syrian conflict, Turkish media reported that hundreds of migrants were flocking to Turkey's borders with Greece and Bulgaria after a senior official was quoted as saying Ankara had...

    The number of illegal border crossers in Canada will soon surpass the 25,000 Syrian refugees Canada accepted in 2016 There are so many Mounties needed to process illegal border crossings in rural Quebec that the federal government is now spending $250,000 to build an unofficial police station on the U.S. border. In Toronto last week, Mayor John Tory announced that the number of refugee claimants in the city’s shelter system has quadrupled from 459 per night in 2016 to an average of 2,351 in 2018. And at least one Quebec politician is calling for a border fence with the U.S....

    In case you were hoping that the European Union (EU) might find a way to patch up the recent differences between their original, western European members and the newer arrivals from the old Eastern Bloc nations, particularly on matters such as immigration, well… you should probably lower your expectations. There’s been an ongoing tiff between some on the left, particularly Angela Merkel, and the eastern states as to how they should regard the flood of primarily Muslim, Syrian migrants seeking passage to Europe. Merkel has maintained that they will add new flavor and culture to Europe’s nations and should be...
  • Ivanka Trump’s uncomfortable embrace of refugees

    washingtontimes.com ^ | 4/27/17 | Cheryl K. Chumley
    Ivanka Trump, already under growing fire from some in the conservative camps who think she’s exerting too much influence over dad Donald, is now calling for the White House to open doors to Syrian refugees. Conservatives and border control advocates are quite right to be concerned. Ivanka’s soft stance on refugees would seem a direct conflict with President Donald Trump’s campaign promises to crack down on borders — and particularly, on the entrance of refugees from terror-tied nations who could prove a national security danger to American citizens.

    Not what the left, the media and quite a few Christians would have you think. It’s always problematic when you look to the mainstream media and other left-wingers for an understanding of what Scripture says. To listen to them, you’d think Jesus was concerned with little more than sending checks to the poor, installing solar panels on roofs and surrendering to any and all foreign enemies.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Question for Cokie Roberts: how many refugees admitted into the US during WWII went on to commit mass-murder terrorist acts in our country? The question arises because on today’s Morning Joe, Cokie contended that shutting out Syrian refugees would be like “shutting the Jews out during World War II.” Roberts made her remark in the context of claiming that the plans President Trump has announced are “extremely dangerous for the United States of America.” View the video here.

    Syrian state TV showed footage of ambulances and a long line of green buses leaving eastern Aleppo. BBC producer Riam Dalati says the first convoy has now arrived at a "handover point" in rebel-held areas to the west. Russia's defence ministry has said buses are taking the injured, civilians and rebel fighters to the neighbouring province of Idlib, most of which is controlled by a powerful rebel alliance that includes the jihadist group Jabhat Fateh al-Sham. The chief of the Russian military's General Staff, Gen Valery Gerasimov, told a news briefing: "A humanitarian corridor has been created for the evacuation...

    Russian authorities are refusing to grant asylum to Syrian refugees, saying they should live in the areas of Syria that are "safe." This has globalist NGOs very angry. From The Moscow Times: Russian human rights organization Civil Assistance says that the Russian authorities are unwilling to grant asylum to Syrian refugees and have a distorted view of the situation in the Middle Eastern country. A new report from the organization, "Syrian Refugees in Russia," paints a bleak picture of the plight of these refugees in Russia. From 2011 to 2015, 2,011 Syrian citizens have requested permanent asylum in Russia, but...

    From the video: "I’m currently working with the Mississippi Department of Public Safety and Mississippi Office of Homeland Security to determine the current status of any Syrian refugees that may be brought to our state in the near future. I will do everything humanly possible to stop any plans from the Obama administration to put Syrian refugees in Mississippi. The policy of bringing these individuals into the country is not only misguided, it is extremely dangerous. I’ll be notifying President Obama of my decision today to resist this potential action." “[We have taken] none so far, so certainly we can...

    Of the 31 states that have declared their opposition to taking in Syrian refugees, one state, Kentucky, has a specific reason to be wary of the background check process: previously two Iraqi refugees who settled in Bowling Green turned out to be al Qaeda-linked terrorists with the blood of American soldiers on their hands, an ABC News investigation found. In the wake of the Kentucky case, the U.S. halted the refugee program for Iraqis for six months, a fact the Obama administration did not disclose to Congress at the time, officials told ABC News in the 2013 investigation.

    First District Supervisor candidate Angela Valles has condemned the "dumping" of Syrian refugees into Victorville, saying she would sue the federal government and seek to cut off refugee welfare benefits after it was discovered 23 Syrian immigrants have resettled in the city this year. Valles also accused her opponent, San Bernardino County Supervisor Robert Lovingood, of being "either oblivious to the placement of unvetted Syrian refugees in our community" or actively covering it up. A campaign statement she released Tuesday said that the federal government was required to consult with local jurisdictions before settling refugees, citing a hard-line immigration reform...

    Stone Mountain, Georgia — a city with just over 6,000 residents and a poverty rate well above the national average — has resettled more Syrian refugees than Los Angeles and New York City combined.
