Obama Opens US Floodgates to Thousands of Iraqi Refugees: If We Really “Won” In Iraq, Why . . .

By Debbie Schlussel

. . . Do we continue to let thousands of Iraqi refugees–many of them MUSLIM–into the United States, especially in economically depressed areas like Michigan, where there aren’t enough jobs and unemployment is nearly 14%?


Iraqi Refugees: Shukran [Thanks] America & Obama/Bush

For “Winning” in Iraq & Letting Our People Invade Your Country

I’ve written about this before.  We are importing tens of thousands of Iraqi immigrants.  Why?  Those on the right and those who cheered Bush and still love the guy tell us that “we won” in Iraq, that the surge worked, that there’s now democracy, and tolerance, and freedom for all religions and religious sects in Iraq.  Just yesterday, Rush Limbaugh was ridiculing Joe Biden for saying that Shi’ites, Sunnis, and Kurds couldn’t live together peacefully.  Well, the proof is in who’s coming here to American shores.  Thousands of Christian and Sunni Iraqis.  And Shi’ite Iraqis, too.  If things are so great there, why are they coming here?

Answer:  because things aren’t so great there.  Because we didn’t “win.”  Because extremist Iran-backed Shi’ites  rejected Christian and Sunni votes and candidates to keep themselves in power.  And Christians can no longer live there.  Neither can many Sunnis.  And the Shi’ites–well, they’re coming here, too.  We make no distinction for the religion of those whom we admit in the thousands of Iraqi immigrants crowding our shores.  Looks like Biden–however much the fool that he is–wasn’t so foolish or wrong, after all.  Yet, no-one on the right will admit it . . . while the Iraqi refugees pour onto our shores.

And, to make matters worse, the Obama State Department is lifting restrictions and allowing thousands more to come to the most economically depressed state in America because, apparently, there aren’t enough jobless people and those draining benefits:

Refugees from Iraq can again settle in southeastern Michigan, provided they have relatives or at least friends in the area.

A federal policy change, effective immediately, loosens two-year-old guidelines limiting refugees from moving here except in “family reunion” cases where they have close relatives in the region.

“This placement restriction is modified to allow the placement of any refugees in the Detroit metro region who have ties there,” Terry Rusch, director of the Office of Admissions Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, wrote in a memo to local state department agencies.

Friends?  Ties? Puh-leeze. Anyone can say they have friends and ties here. This is an opening of the floodgates that we cannot afford, even if those seeking to come here are Christian. And as I noted, they don’t restrict people by religion with regard to immigration. We will be getting many more Iraqi Muslim immigrants because of this boneheaded move. Thanks, Obama.

The policy change came at the request of placement agencies and organizations that work with refugees. The state is home to about 35 percent of Iraqi-born U.S. residents, according to the Census Bureau. Most live in Metro Detroit. . . .

The State Department restricted resettlement in June 2008, fearing an influx of refugees would worsen Metro Detroit’s economy and joblessness.

Michigan’s unemployment rate was around 8 percent in May 2008. It was 13.6 percent last month, but is improving, according to the Department of Labor and Economic Growth.

Improving???? Huh? Drive the streets of any Detroit suburb. Store fronts are empty, houses are in foreclosure. People have given up looking for jobs. There is NO improvement, only a drop-off in those seeking work.

This is flat-out ridiculous. Sorry, but on this, Joe Biden was right. Had we split Iraq up into provinces, the Chaldeans would have been able to stay and live in peace with the Kurds. And the Shi’ite and Sunni Muslims could stay there, too.

We simply cannot absorb this influx of people. It is a recipe for disaster and a hastening of the Islamic population growth in America.

Given that he says he is a Muslim, is any one surprised by the President’s conduct? Hardly. They’ll keep on coming here and who the heck is going to stop them? Not Open Borders Republicans, that’s for sure.

“we won” in Iraq: What did we win?

Don’t worry about jobs, the muzzies will receive checks immediately then head off to the mosque to figure out how to murder us and take our stuff.

This war boils down to one thing: THEY want out stuff.

I’m back, I won’t use the term neocon anymore. This is why I love debbie she doesn’t hold to the concept that the left is wrong on everything. It takes guts and independence to admit joe biden was right. After hearing limbaughs take on the oil spill and his defense of bp I will never listen to him again. It makes me want to puke hearing all the main stream right wing people all follow lock step to the idea that iraq was a success. They will conveniently ignore this story and the fact that muslims have been flooding this country for years, coming from iraq. They will also ignore the body counts that keep adding up in Iraq. Great article and good job exposing both bush and obama as globalists and guys who think nothing of American soveriegnty. I wish there was more like you.

I saw 3 muslim women in burqas with about 7 or 8 young kids at the Ralphs here in Simi Valley, CA, in the checkout line, each buying a couple hundred dollars worth of dried baby formula (it’s about $40/can) and juice and paying with WIC coupons. When I was getting into my American-made car, I saw them in the parking lot loading into a brand new Toyota Sequoia (still had the dealer plates) and the other ones into a late model Lexus SUV. Later in the day I also saw 3 muslim men, one wearing those full pajama outfits, and the other two with those beards-and-no-mustache radical appearance sitting in front of a coffee shop here in town. The men were giving me menacing stares as I walked by, but it was probably because I was wearing my ‘Israeli Air Force” t-shirt in honor of the bombing preparations I read about here yesterday.

I never saw a muslim in Simi until about 5 years ago and now I see them just about every day. Definitely changes going on in our demographics thanks to immigration policy.

    I am seeing muzzies everywhere here in Sacramento now, too. The menacing looks are part of their demeanor.

    I guess the cancer is spreading from sea to shining sea 🙁

      Unfortunately, I see these Muslim barbarians everywhere in Northern Virginia as well. Bush’s presidency had eight years to stop the idiocy of importing Muslim barbarians into our country; instead it increased dramatically. My parents live in Kansas City, MO, and I’ve noticed more and more Muslims there as well. We know these Muslims are barbaric, are modern Nazis, and can never adapt into civilization, so it is insanity to allow them into our country. Let’s pray we can get a true conservative elected in 2012 and put an end to allowing Muslims into our country.

The question that should be asked: Did we have to have a war with Iraq in the first place? No, because Congress did not declare war with Iraq as required by our Constitution.
Unless the American people accept and enforce this constitutional requiremment for future wars, any whining about the consequences of immoral and unconstitutional wars is irrational.

Ramjordan on June 24, 2010 at 3:37 pm

    Ramjordan, the war with Iraq was perfectly constitutional and just. We needed to remove Saddam Hussein from power. What was stupid was not installing a pro-American strongman to rule Iraq and instead insisting on giving barbarians “democracy.”

    JM on June 24, 2010 at 5:06 pm

Then again, in Dearbornistan, the police arrested Christian missionaries for filming the goings on at a Muslim fair there. Nothing to see, its time to move on. Barbararabia is on our shores already but who the heck is paying attention? No one.

NormanF on June 24, 2010 at 5:04 pm

Thank you for reporting on this, Debbie.

As for the rest of the conservative media, shame on them for not reporting this and other recent stories on Iraq that Debbie has reported on.

JeffE on June 24, 2010 at 5:47 pm

And on Dean Stethem… only Debbie recalled his anniversary. Every one is afraid of Islam. That’s what all the bowing and scraping on both sides of the political aisle, nauseating as it is, is all about.

NormanF on June 24, 2010 at 6:03 pm

I’m perfectly fine with thousands of Iraqi Christians being moved to the US, because they truly are being targeted for death by the Muslims in Iraq. I even called the White House and left a message suggesting we move them here, citing what the Clinton administration did in the mid-90s by moving thousands of Bosnian Muslims into St. Louis.
The administration’s willingness to import Iraqi Muslims though is more proof of Dear Leader’s unwillingness to correctly term the enemy – Muslims. Given that the US has been fighting Muslims from the world over for almost 15 years now, I’d have hoped they would know who the enemy is by now, but I guess not.

Bernard on June 24, 2010 at 7:41 pm

Anyone with half a brain can see that our immigration policy is skewed and unfair. We let all these muslims flow into the country regardless or age, education or job skill levels and we still impose a tight numerical limit of the number of irish that emigrate here. Why? Why? Why? I have no confidence in our federal government doing the right things to protect American citizen’s best interests. ALL decisions are made through a political prism. What ever happened to “doing the right thing”? It’s no surprise that more and more Americans are pessimistic about the future.

Allowing these Iraqi Muslims (and I assume that many of the Christian refugees from Iraq are not much better, being dhimmified and pan-Arab) entry here on the grounds that they should be reunited with family already in our country is analogous to what happened in Germany, and later in France. Turks and Algerians were given work visas to perform manual and menial jobs that the Germans and French themselves were unwilling to do. Crime rates among the new “guest workers” rose alarmingly, and it was decided that the wives and children of these altogether un-European Muslims should be allowed entry in order to reduce the latters’ feelings of isolation and alienation, which were assumed to be responsible for these Muslim males’ high incidence of criminality. There was, as a result, a flood of Muslims from Turkey, Algeria, and elsewhere, first the wives and children of the original guest workers (including many whose marital or family status was never verified), followed by their extended families, with little or no verification of filial status demanded or provided. The result, of course, is what is now termed Eurabia – fifty million Muslims in Europe, and growing. Europe as we knew it is dying. The idiotic policies of our government will lead, ultimately, to our own transformation, and our own destruction, if we do not wake up and come to our senses.

Time to shut down the free ride in our amusement park and close the gates till everyone legally here and a citizen has a job. Move everyone else to an overflow room in mexico.

More and more Somali muslims are moving into the Columbus, Ohio area too. When I first moved to this area I would see muslims every now and then. Now it is all of the time! Over a year I have noticed a huge increase. By the way…a lot of them are extremely rude. Nobody seems to have a pleasant experience with any of the Somalians around here.

One more quick note. I know somebody who works at an Office Max close by. She told me that a lot of Somalians will come in, make copies of documents, change things here and there, copy the bogus documents and then send them off to Somalia. Yeah…tell me that all of them are legal. People need to wake up and do something instead of being so afraid to hurt somebody’s feelings! I am so sick of this PC crap!

Angela04 on June 24, 2010 at 10:36 pm

Unfortunately, there is a perverse method to the madness of immigration- PC and potential voters. Pacifists and lefties are living in denial too. America is rapidly declining into a third-world country because of its “diversity,” not enhanced by it- that BS.

Moreover, when the demographic changes(about mid-century),do you think those “do-gooder lefties” are going to reap the rewards of the world they helped to mold, and participate in the political process?

Only when the US Constitution has been replaced by a Dictatorship or Sharia Law, they’ll know they’ve been had. Too late, lefties! Here’s the good news! Blacks won’t have the Whites to blame anymore.

From the “Department of Labor and Economic Growth” :

Growth is improving. Joblessness is down. WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

Why does David Blaine keep giving us the finger(s)?


Everyone has a twin. Still looking for Debbies?

Because we need more DEMOCRATS! And peaceful peaceful protestors of our way of life.

Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet
effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a awesome
job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.

Excellent Blog!
