President Obama’s immigration policy is racked in progressivism. He basically has allowed an open border for people to come and go as they please. Even encouraging it through amnesty and programs that provide a pathway to citizenship. The Conservative Daily Post reports that a new refugee deal with Australia is having the Obama administration in hush hush tones.
Australia was being pressured by the United Nations to increase and better the conditions of their refugee camps. They received much international criticism over their refugee camp standards. So in an effort to unburden themselves they made a deal with President Obama that would displace 2,500 dangerous refugees from terrorist hot spots to places all across America.
But lawmakers are forbidden from discussing these issues. Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull said that the refugees are currently held in Papua New Guinea and Nauru. Don Barnett of the Center for Immigration Studies was not a fan of this move saying,
“This is a backroom deal, wheeling and dealing with another country’s refugee problem. I don’t believe for a moment it’s a one-time deal. That’s for public consumption.”
Senator Chuck Grassley and Representative Bob Goodlatte wrote a letter denouncing the action to he Department of Homeland Security and Secretary of State John Kerry.
“This situation is concerning for many reasons, your departments negotiated an international agreement regarding refugees without consulting or notifying Congress.”
But those involved in this refugee deal are not permitted to discuss it with the public because it was meant to stay out of the media. Obama tried doing this behind closed doors. Once again his arrogance made him believe he could get away with anything.
Staffers were not even allowed to disclose the refugee numbers is usually allowed through a probe. They were instead deemed classified. But it was disclosed these refugees come from the following countries, Iran, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, and Sudan.
