Did you listen to Obama’s “speech” last night?
Well, it was hardly a speech. It was more like a lecture. He lectured the American people.
While saying that it is unacceptable to blame the entire Muslim community for the actions of a few terrorists, he blamed all of America’s gun owners for allowing these terrorists to ILLEGALLY arm themselves.
It’s just remarkable.
But the fact of the matter is that this terror attack was perpetrated by a foreigner who lied her way through the visa process and tricked the Obama administration into letting her into the country. The President and his people had an obligation to make sure she was completely vetted. They failed. Not only that, but they have flat out refused to learn from their mistake.
This is the same exact background check process that Obama says is “good enough” for the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees he plans to bring here.
Tashfeen Malik gave the U.S. government a fake address on her application. The Department of Homeland Security didn’t even bother to check to see whether it was real.
What do you think is going to happen when refugees start applying with little-to-no paperwork?
Tashfeen Malik entered the country on what is called a K-1 Visa, which is colloquially called a Fiancée Visa. Since entering office, Barack Obama has relaxed the requirements for receiving a K-1 Visa. An applicant for a Fiancée Visa no longer has to meet with a DHS official in person. Seems unbelievable, but it is absolutely true.
Our visa system is broken beyond repair.
The visa waiver program allows for radicalized Europeans to come to the United States at a minute’s notice without any background check. Considering that many of the Paris attackers held valid French passports, they could have just as easily hopped on a plane and launched their attack here.
Terrorists are abusing the Fiancée Visa system to enter the country and wage jihad against us.
And the same faulty background checks are going to be used to “screen” Syrian refugees. ISIS has promised to use the refugee crisis to infiltrate the West and we are playing right into their hands.
It’s time to hit the pause button.
Listen, everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face. It takes a real idiot to do the same thing expecting a different result.
We have been attacked and now that we know how these terrorists are slipping through, we have a duty to take a step back and make sure that all the holes are plugged.
The Senate voted on the Stop Extremists Coming Under Refugee Entry (SECURE) Act, a bill to temporarily suspend visas to people coming from countries with serious terror problems. Only ten Senators voted to support it. That’s pathetic.
Out of the first group of Syrian refugees we let in, the Obama administration has already lost track of some of the “refugees” and has absolutely no idea where they are.
This has to stop. We have to suspend all dangerous visa entries and restructure the programs to make sure that terrorists aren't slipping through.
We know the system is broken and we know that Americans are losing their lives as a result. And yet both political parties refuse to do anything to stop it.
This isn’t a Left/Right issue. Both sides are putting Americans’ lives at risk.
If the Obama administration did its job and fully vetted Tashfeen Malik, this attack never would have happened. But how many others like her are already here? How many others like her are in line to come here?
Now that you know where we are vulnerable, you must demand that these gaps be closed!
Every day Congress waits means more Americans put at risk.
