A Refugee Screening Process Primer

For those worried that refugees are breezing through a turnstile into the US.

‎Refugees undergo more rigorous screening than anyone else we allow into the United States. Here's what the screening process looks like for them:

From Whitehouse.gov...

Tourism is a far greater threat than receiving refugees.


Comments

I didn't expect much response to this. It's info that takes all the fun out of far and panic about Syrian refugees.


"Fear" not "far"


Facts are not conducive to discussion with our right wing radical friends. Name calling, bullying, and brute power are the hallmarks of those folks.

Keep in mind, 3 immigrants have been convicted of terror involvement out of 690,000 people admitted to the United States.


Hey, Mr Bills, if all you had in your miserable existence was to support any republican candidate for President, well you'd be "name calling, bullying," and just mindlessly trolling around, too; like a rudderless ship, or in this case rudderless dingy.

A person can only stand so much embarrassment. Everyone has their breaking point.

Hope all is well in your world, Mr Bills.


Don't confuse anger for mindlessness.


Don't confuse your ideological fairy tales with facts:

Web Link

A dozen refugees connected to terrorism so far in 2015.


Some left wingers laughably claim that any foreigner who manages to become a US citizen and then plots against us is a "home grown terrorist" or "American terrorist."

BZZZZT. No.

.


Liberals like to help the downtrodden. The problem is that they think they're the only ones that want to help or that know how to help.

The repugnant Leftist go even further. They lecture others on the issue. They mock and ridicule points of view that are entirely valid and relevant while refusing to acknowledge any evidence contrary to their own ideology.

Then they wonder why others don't respond to their repulsive trolling.


Oh, boy - talk about pot meets kettle. Wow!

And to be so colorful, ...

Troll on, dude.

Everyone step back - drama queen troll at work here. Hard hat area, folks. In fact, a complete body prophylactic coupled with extreme caution should be used when approaching this individual (even metaphorically).

Some things just don't wash off in the shower.


^^^ Some things just don't wash off in the shower. ^^^

Did you write that all by yourself?


The resident teabagger troll posts "proof" that leaves the starting gate with the following "standard" of good journalism...

" a native of Somalia who sources indicate came to the United States as a refugee"

What sources were those? Breitbart?

Go hijack some other thread to prove your bigotry, you pathetic, sniveling little troll.


^^^ Go hijack some other thread to prove your bigotry, you pathetic, sniveling little troll. ^^^

"Coasters" is losing its composure. It should takes its complaints to Clay.


>> Go hijack some other thread to prove your bigotry, you pathetic, sniveling little troll.<< >>a complete body prophylactic coupled with extreme caution should be used <<

The Charge of the Lightweight Brigade. Expect a retreat and another failed attack soon.


Don't look now, but your candidate just decided to check out the facts...

Web Link


Yup, fail.

"My" candidate? No. But 1000X better than Humary.


Here's some actual information about who gets radicalized. Beats reading tweets from twits...

From the CS Monitor...

Web Link


From a former Lefty activist:

Web Link

The Left is so focused on violating the Constitution by pursuing a gun control policy that doesn’t work and banning inanimate objects under the guise of eliminating “assault weapons.” Yet, they refuse to use the perfectly legitimate constitutional tool of not bringing in ‘assault people’ to our country in the first place.


‘assault people’

Reminds me of Trump talking to Jewish Republicans today spewing anti-semitic stereotypes. What a clod.


Watching the Donald spread xenophobia at tonight's spewing in Mt Pleasant, SC, the guy provided nothing, but ego and bile. He's proposing to block all Muslims from immigrating to the USA and will stop free speech in the Internet. It must be what it was like when Hitler was on the rise in Germany. simply horrifying that he would say this and even worse that there are people ignorant enough to buy that he could ever do that.


Maybe you'd feel better if we simply put a moratorium on all immigration. Wait until the war on terror is won and open it up after that. According to Obama ISIS is contained, so how long could it be?


The simple-minded approach to a complex issue always fails.

At a time when we need collaboration and cooperation across all people in the US, Trump is yammering in a fashion that harkens to a time in our history when we sent people to internment camps.

The hateful, xenophobic, unconstitutional rhetoric (Trump wants to violate the 1st, 5th and 14th amendments) is destructive and irresponsible and anyone supporting Donald Trump should be ashamed of themselves. I'm certain they are not, but they should be. What Trump is doing - ginning-up hatred - is NOT leadership. It is the opposite of leadership.

This is not a problem we're going to solve by turning into a bunch of rabid, panicky, bigoted numbskulls. If you want cooperation, you don't alienate an entire category of citizens and foment mistrust and fear and loathing.


Our constitutional rights don't extend to refugees and asylum seekers wanting to immigrate to the US. Those are for citizens and legal residents of the US. Citizens, through their representatives in Congress have the authority to establish immigration policy. Those policies include who we let in and from where, as well as how many.

"Moderate" and "good" Muslims have had an opportunity to help fight terror in the US, but they haven't really stepped up to do so.

Web Link

What we have instead is CAIR dictating US policy towards Muslims. And irrational noise machines like "Coasters" that accuses anyone with valid concerns regarding homeland security as "racists" or "xenophobes."

And it does all that while hiding behind an anonymous name.

The ideology that can't even name the terror we face is incapable of defeating it. We don't fear Muslims peacefully practicing their religion. We fear incompetent leaders mired in political correctness like Obama, a man that doesn't like America or Americans very much at all.


+1 FD. Excellent links.

It's absolutely nuts that some people including this administration do everything possible to deny the crisis and willfully ignore expert FBI counter terrorism information, not to mention common sense.

It's as though they consciously want the US to be taken down.


The ideology that can't even name the terror we face is incapable of defeating it. We don't fear Muslims peacefully practicing their religion. We fear incompetent leaders mired in political correctness like Obama, a man that doesn't like America or Americans very much at all.

That is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen written. Seriously. You need to pull it together, man. Everyone can name the issue. The Iraq war created a suck-hole that took several trillion of taxpayer money and created ISIS. Now the chickens have come pack to roost and all we're seeing is the GOP cock-o-the-walks spew bigotry.

And there are people stupid enough to buy their nonsense which is the BIGGEST problem we face today. An educated, mature electorate doesn't tolerate that kind of feculence.


^^^ That is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen written. ^^^

Then you should have no problem providing some evidence that it isn't true. You offer no evidence that Obama likes America or Americans, while there is ample evidence that he does not. No one that loves America wants to "fundamentally transform" America. No one that loves Americans goes overseas and criticizes them of a Muslim backlash that hasn't occurred and is unlikely to occur. That's not who we are. Yet that's what the racist little puke in the Whitehouse describes his constituents to the world, most recently in Paris. And he still can not utter the phrase "Islamic terror," even after San Bernardino terrorits attack that occurred under his nose shortly after he bragged that "ISIS is contained.

You disagree with my assessment of Obama because you feel the same as him when it comes to America and Americans. You don't like them and it shows.


"You offer no evidence that Obama likes America or Americans," - deja-vu all over again, huh? Are you still stuck here? Don't forget about the cert, too.

Once again, NEWS FLASH!! - Obama will not be our next President!!

Simple mind of a drama queen troll.


^^^ Once again, NEWS FLASH!! - Obama will not be our next President!! ^^^

Only a moron thinks that every conversation on TA is about the 2016 election. Or a fanatic that won't change his mind and can't change the subject.


Francis, please prove that you don't hate America and Americans.

As always, answers only receive a passing grade if you show all of your work.


"Only a moron thinks that every conversation on TA is about the 2016 election."

Gee, did I misunderstand something here? I guess "A Refugee Screening Process Primer" has nothing to do with politics, policy and therefor political leadership, including the not too distant election - in which Obama will not be listed as a candidate.

"Or a fanatic that won't change his mind and can't change the subject." Might that be like yourself, for example?

I suppose, if I were to also act like a three year old (no offense meant to 3 year olds), I too could come up with "snappy rejoinders" like: "Don't confuse your ideological fairy tales with facts:" / "The repugnant Leftist go even further." / "Did you write that all by yourself?" / "It should takes its complaints to Clay." ("It"? Really? Sup with That?) / "And irrational noise machines like "Coasters"? / "And it does all that while hiding behind an anonymous name." (one of my personal favs) / "...like Obama, a man that doesn't like America or Americans very much at all." / "No one that loves America wants to "fundamentally transform" America." / "Yet that's what the racist little puke in the Whitehouse ..." / - and all that garbage nicely wrapped up with - "You disagree with my assessment of Obama because you feel the same as him when it comes to America and Americans. You don't like them and it shows." An arrogant accusatory assumption, pure vitriol and yet another personal attack with only one intention - to attempt to belittle anyone that disagrees with you ... which is the vast majority on this board and this country, Thank God.

What a twisted little bucket of swill you are, francis; a divisive, sick narcissist drama queen troll. You got nerve, I'll give you that - not too smart, but you got nerve.

The middle-east will provide more conflict, more killings, more challenges for us all going forward. Part of that discussion should be taking place right now with all Presidential candidates. They should all be discussing the problem and providing what they can in terms of solutions or potential solutions.

Instead, we see this: "Republican presidential campaign rhetoric is red-hot regarding Islamic terrorism, with Sen. Cruz suggesting the use of nuclear weapons to see “if sand can glow in the dark,” a threat even more troubling than Donald Trump’s call to temporarily bar Muslims from entering the U.S., writes Robert Parry." That quote is from December 5th - and represents one very scary path ... and one that apparently is just another day's business for the likes of Cruz and those that support him.

But of course how could Anyone even think elections when talking middle east? How silly - right? And you have the nerve to call anyone, other than yourself, a "moron"?


Trying to get either George or Coasters to engage in a logical debate is pointless. George can't and Coasters won't.


It is so cute when uff comes to the rescue of our Gualala troll ... or at least it used to be.

The apparent kindred is an odd one, but the pattern of behavior is consistent.

Are the postings from your boy francis what you call an attempt at "a logical debate", uff? So you are just peachy with a troll coming on TA, personally attacking others and calling it a legitimate attempt at engaging in "a logical debate"? Maybe you are comfortable with the level of hate and bigotry our little Gualala troll espouses? Maybe you'd rather stir things up by whatever means possible than rationally and logically discuss the plethora of issues we face going forward.

You both must be drinking the same water. I'd add that it is a very good thing that the vast majority of voters in the US don't agree with you, francis or the idea that what either of you engage in is in any way "logical" or in any way a "debate".

Maybe you missed that class? Debates don't condone personal attacks. Debates usually focus on an issue, and stick with it. A fair debater can, more often than not, debate more than one 'side' of an issue - yet still somehow manage to avoid calling opponents names.

I could go on, but why? If you are so _____ (fill in the blank for yourself) that you honestly can't see what you are supporting, than there isn't anything I can do to help.

Once again, uff, I find myself saying have a nice day.


^^^ Trying to get either George or Coasters to engage in a logical debate is pointless. George can't and Coasters won't. ^^^

Fanatics can be like that, especially when they know they're wrong.

^^^ Francis, please prove that you don't hate America and Americans. ^^^

I'm not the one in a powerful position with vast authority that is traveling the world and criticizing his constituents and their culture everywhere he goes. That's Preacher Professor President Barack Hussein Obama.

The burden is still on "Coasters" to provide a link to any video that shows Obama expressing his love of Americans and America. After nearly 7 agonizing years, there should be a trove of such videos, but take all the time you knead.

^^^ you honestly can't see what you are supporting ^^^

A wiser person would recognize that I haven't yet stated support for any candidate.


"A wiser person would recognize that I haven't yet stated support for any candidate."

Phew!!! That's a real relief. And here we were under the (apparently wrong) impression that you supported All the republican offerings; wannabes with no rudder in the water, no brain tissue, no love of country, no common sense and a group so out of touch that the best any of them has been able to do is chase The Donald around ... at the expense of the issues and potential remedies to our broad base of problems, domestically and internationally.

Good news indeed. How could so many have been so wrong thinking otherwise? Another one of life's mysteries, huh?

And you actually think you're fooling ... who? What a joke.


Trying to get either George or Coasters to engage in a logical debate is pointless. George can't and Coasters won't.

Most of what people are trying to pass off as "logical" hereabouts is partisan-driven rhetoric supported by opinion, not history and experience.

In general, it's a miasma of confirmation bias.

You want to get logical, I'm all for it. Let 'er rip!


It looks like the thin-skinned coward hiding behind an anonymous name needs more time to find any evidence of Obama expressing his love of America or Americans.


How did we go from "A Refugee Screening Process Primer" to "It looks like the thin-skinned coward hiding behind an anonymous name needs more time to find any evidence of Obama expressing his love of America or Americans."? Is it really that hard to define and maintain discussion on topic? Or, is the discussion of topic just too difficult for some to grasp?

Troll; it's the only answer I can come up with for the question (observation) made and offered.


^^^ How did we go from ... ^^^

Some clear thinking and reading the posts in order will enable you to answer that question. And you may notice that you have veered OT as well. Hypocrites sometimes overlook those things!

Besides, in light of FBI Director Comey's comments regarding the vetting of refugees and the San Bernardino terrorist attack, who in their right mind still argues that the screening process doesn't need improvement?


Of course, nothing is perfect; there is always room for improvement - but that's Not what your comments stated or implied.

You were simply being who and what you are ... a troll. Such a hopeless troll at that. Coming from you, it is not at all unexpected.


Thanks for shared interesting information. I would like to say that this post is really very well. I like it. Get Sound rubber deadening sale online from Web Link
