President Obama and Senator Dick Durbin

Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) is calling on the United Stated to increase the number of Syrian refugees allowed into the United States, according to the Huffington Post.

Durbin wants to see the US bringing in 100,000 Syrian refugees, in the next fiscal year.

He had previously suggested the US bring in 65,000 Syrian refugees.

Just recently, Lebanon’s Education Minister Elias Bou Saab warned UK’s Prime Minister David Cameron that he believes that two percent of the refugees entering Europe are Jihadist members of ISIS.

Cameron was visiting Lebanon to review the refugee situation over there first hand, pledging that the UK would donate an additional $92.6 million (60 million pounds) to Lebanon to assist with the Syrian refugees in their borders.

Saab said he based his number on what they found among the refugees located in Lebanon.

The UN Refugee Agency disagrees with Saab, and said such claims are both unprovable and unhelpful to the refugees, according to a report in the UK Independent.

On Monday, the British government appointed a special minister to deal with the arrival of 20,000 more Syrian refugees that the UK has agreed to accept, according to a report in Lebanon’s Daily Star. The UK has already absorbed 5000 Syrian refugees since 2011.

Back in the US, Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is unhappy with any ideas to resettle Syrian refugees in the US, due to the Jihadi risks.

Certainly, if Saab’s numbers are right, then Senator Durbin’s humanitarian proposal could unintentionally bring in thousands of ISIS terrorists onto US soil.

Huckabee proposed a very different solution to the Syrian refugee crisis, according to the Washington Post:

“I just read that Saudi Arabia has offered to build 600 mosques for all of the Muslims that will come to the U.S. or to Europe,” he said. “I’ve got a better idea: Why doesn’t Saudi Arabia host them, and we will send some assistance through our charitable organizations for some hospitals and schools? We will design the curriculum for those schools. They won’t be madrassas to teach terrorism.”

  1. If Durbin wants to bring 100,000 Syrian refugees into the US, I volunteer his state of Illinois to roll out the welcome wagon for them! I understood there are some vacant homes available in Chicago and a few empty lots just waiting for tents to be pitched! Durbin wants them, he can have them.

  2. We have homeless; let’s house them first.

    We have the ones who are hungry; let’s feed them first.

    We have those without basic seasonal clothing; let’s cloth them first.

    We have those without jobs; let’s employ them first.

    Americans first!

    We have enough immigrants now; let get rid of the illegal ones first!

  4. The U.S. by rights should be forced to take all of the. Obama’s deliberate policy to not deal with Assad, or arm secular rebel groups at the beginning of the war, such as the Kurds and only allow Iranian backed groups to fight and his infamous red line where he stated chlorine gas was not chemical warfare, caused this slaughter. The reason as stated yesterday by media-so he would not get Iran mad because Obama was desperate for his legacy treaty with Iran and Iran backs Assad. Cynical, evil, narcissistic.

  6. Sen. Durbin is another one of the idiot children of the USA.
    As if we, don't have enough problems and issues, he wants to give us some more…. Why doesn't the worlds Muslim nations take them in? They have the space and the resources to do so… not here..no way..no how..not now!

  7. it's time to take the Isis infiltration seriously, and the U S is not doing that. Yes there is a moral dilemma, but protection begins at home, and this is not being done. Why are the Arab states not doing more to relocate the refugees?We should learn from them. Why must we invite potential Jihadists who are hell bent on wiping out the infidel on to our shores without doing due diligence first? Do we never learn from history?
