(Conservative Tribune) During a House Judiciary hearing last week, FBI Director James Comey boldly defied President Barack Obama’s administration, known for its shameless lies, and admitted that the country’s refugee screening process is grossly inadequate.
“The only thing we can query is information that we have, so if we have no information on someone, they’ve never crossed our radar screen, they’ve never been a ripple in the pond, there will be no record of them there and so it will be challenging,” he explained.
This dose of truth apparently irritated the White House, to the point that it had Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson make a completely opposite claim to USA Today on Wednesday.
“(T)he refugee review process is probably one of the most if not the most extensive thorough background checks that someone seeking to enter this country goes through,” he said.
According to The New York Times, White House press secretary Josh Earnest issued a similar lie about a month ago, when he claimed, “Refugees go through the most robust security process of anybody who’s contemplating travel to the United States.”
But given what Comey said, it’s clear that Johnson and Earnest’s statements were patently false. If our screening process were as “extensive” and “robust” as they claimed, we would have proper records on everybody.
All this comes on the heels of Secretary of State John Kerry announcing that the United States will accept 70,000 refugees in 2015; 85,000 refugees in 2016; and 100,000 refugees in 2017.
It wasn’t the only time last week that Comey tangled with the White House. On Friday, he used a speech at the University of Chicago Law School to blast the Obama administration’s proposals to revamp sentencing for drug crimes and blamed the Black Lives Matter movement for an upsurge in violent crime in American cities.
This is even more serious. The Obama administration will be importing tens of thousands of poorly screened Muslims who could actually be radical Islamic terrorists hellbent on attacking the United States from within — and we have no way to know.
