Refugee Resettlement” and “Unaccompanied Minors” are presenting a double threat to our economy, our national security, and our social order.

The Obama administration’s plan to “surge” Syrian refugees into the United States is back in full-tilt mode. And unless the American public and the U.S. Congress block this effort, thousands (or tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands) of unvetted “refugees” from a dozen or more Muslim countries may soon be pouring into the United States.

Assistant Secretary of State Anne Richard revealed the Obama plan to “surge” Syrian refugees into the United States at a conference in Geneva, Switzerland, with UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres on December 9, 2014. “The United States accepts the majority of all UNHCR referrals from around the world,” Assistant Secretary Richard stated. “Last year, we reached our goal of resettling nearly 70,000 refugees from nearly 70 countries. And we plan to lead in resettling Syrians as well … and we expect admissions from Syria to surge in 2015 and beyond.”...

...as late as September 21 of last year, Secretary of State John Kerry was promising during a press conference in Berlin, Germany, to bump up annual U.S. refugee admissions to at least 100,000 — and even more, if possible — while promising to take a minimum of 10,000 Syrian refugees. But as the EU refugee crisis intensified, and as alarming video and photo images of the massive flood of migrants began dominating the news cycles, the Obama administration, faced with widespread opposition, backed off — temporarily.
The fierce pushback against Obama’s refugee surge has been aided by continuing and growing anger over his other migration surge: the waves of “unaccompanied minors” that have flooded across our southern border since 2014, thanks to the encouragement to break the law provided by the president’s illegal amnesty-by-executive-order...
While the unaccompanied-children surge has attracted most of the media attention, the Obama administration has also managed to surge a huge increase in the numbers of H-1B and L-1B “temporary” workers — by executive order, of course. This is a political payoff to the high-tech companies — both foreign and domestic — who are using these Obama visa “reforms” to bring in thousands of lower-paid tech workers to replace their American counterparts...
All of that is still only part of the story, however: President Obama has also, again by executive order, hamstrung the Border Patrol and done everything possible to render border security and immigration controls as ineffective as possible...
The case against President Obama’s refugee resettlement program is overwhelming, based upon national security, economic, and social considerations. We will first list an extended itemization of the many strikes against the plan, and then develop some of them in more detail:..
