Obammigration: 102,000 Saudi Muslim Visas to US Approved (w/in a Week!) in ’11

By Debbie Schlussel

Whoever the Republican Presidential nominee is, let’s hope that, if elected to the White House, he turns off the spigot of visa rubber-stamping to America.  (But don’t hold your breath.)  Last week, Barack Hussein Obama announced that he was going to make it even easier for foreigners to come to America on visitor and student visas. He made the absurd announcement–appropriately–at Disney World.  But he’s apparently already made it very easy for Saudi Muslims, to the detriment of America’s national security.   Last year, Saudi applications for visas to the United States more than quadrupled from 25,000 in 2010 to 110,000 in 2011.  Even worse is the fact that a whopping 93%–or 102,300– of these applications were approved, 75% of them–nearly 77,000–within a week (!) of the application.

That means that there was little–if any!–scrutiny and background check for most of these applicants from the country from which 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers emanated. Helloooo . . . ? Anyone home? It’s outrageous, but no one is paying attention.  Nobody cares.  We don’t know who they are–and neither does the government.  The problem is that there are over 500,000 illegal aliens who are visa violators and/or overstays.  And of those, we have no idea where they are or what they are planning.  A good number of those are Muslims.  And there’s no doubt that some of these 100,000-plus Saudi Muslims in America will become part of that number of illegals in our midst.  Even if only one percent–or over a thousand Saudi Muslim aliens–are visa overstays, that’s 1,000 Saudi Muslims that could be up to no good, and we won’t find out until it’s too late.  And that’s being optimistic.

More from Muslim Arab publication Asharq Al-Awsat:

The US embassy in Riyadh revealed that 110,000 Saudi nationals applied for a visa to visit the US in 2011, an increase of 25,000 from the previous year. The embassy also revealed that 93 percent of these visa applications were approved, and 75 percent of visa application approvals were issued within one week.

Speaking to Asharq Al-Awsat, the US embassy’s Non-Immigrant Visa Chief, Robin A. Busse . . . called on Saudi students to apply as soon as possible for student visas to the US, saying this should be not less than 3 months before their course is set to begin.

As for claims that some questions contained on the visa application form are offensive, such as questions whether the applicant has every had any involvement with a terrorist organization or prostitution, he stressed that these questions are asked by US embassies across the world, under the US immigration act and approved by US congress.

For his part, US Consul General at the US embassy in Riyadh, Glen Keiser revealed that the number of Saudi Arabian nationals applying for visas to visit the US has risen by 100 percent over the past 4 years. He also revealed that more Saudi Arabians apply for visas to visit the US than any other nationality around the world.

Um, since we approved 93% of them and 75% within a week of applying, can you blame them? We are opening the floodgates to the country where Osama Bin Laden, were he alive today, would win free elections.

Statistics also revealed that 66,000 of the 110,000 Saudi visa applicants in 2011 applied for a visa at the Riyadh embassy, and that approximately a quarter of these applicants were seeking to study in the US.

Keiser also told Asharq Al-Awsat that the US visa application process is currently under review to make this faster and easier, and that this review is expected to make 35 percent of administrative procedures redundant.

HUH? This rubber-stamping process isn’t fast and easy enough???

Keiser added that the number of Saudi nationals seeking to obtain a visa to the US fell sharply following the 9/11 attacks, but this rose to and even outstripped previous levels in the subsequent years as relations improved between the two countries. Keiser said that the majority of visas to the US are granted to the private sector, and that 3 out of 4 Saudi applicants are businessmen.

BARF. I, frankly, don’t even understand why we have a visa process for Saudi Arabia and most of these countries, if we aren’t going to take the time to scrutinize those who want entry into America.

We might as well just say “come on in, future terrorists!” Marhaba [Arabic for “Welcome”]!

It’ll be even worse once the in-person visa interview requirement for visa applicants to travel to the US Embassy in their country’s capital to determine if they’re suitable to be admitted is dropped.

With no way of determining eligibility, those visa rubber-stamps will rise from 77% to 99% percent. Guh-reat for would be terrorists, not so great for Americans.

The safety of our citizens and homeland security has taken a backseat to the convenience of foreigners. Its what we don’t know that could come back to bite us in the end.

Only in America!

The problem is securing the homeland and protecting our borders is a low priority for politicians. ICE is chronically underfunded and understaffed and it can’t handle the workload placed on it. No wonder the system is broken. Just don’t hold your breath waiting for Congress to fix it.

NormanF on January 23, 2012 at 3:18 am

I expect the absolute worst to happen because of this president. Islamists have absolutely no respect for our culture.
I have seen absolutely pristine neighborhoods decimated by these Islamists. Malls and grocery stores become vacant wastelands because of Islamists.
Numerous major cities have been decimated by these 7th century natives.

    Indeed. Minneapolis is noted for its Somali jihadists.

    Occam's Tool on January 23, 2012 at 7:44 pm

It will take a bunch of more 9/11s to make enough people realize that expelling Muslims in the US is the only solution to this problem of creeping islamization of the West.

Infidel on January 23, 2012 at 7:05 am

Debbie you are right about the problem of granting visas to saudi students not being only a democrat proble,because under Bush visas to saudis went back to usual after 911,however the amount under the marxist in chief seems to be larger,one of your reader has it right, the solution is zero or a very small number,make sure they are checked up on periodically and at the slightest sign of being muslims then deport their muslim asses back to their cave.

Juan on January 23, 2012 at 8:32 am

The other side of the coin is, who’s keeping track of where these folks are when they’re here? Is there a requirement for regular reporting from the educational institutions they’ll be attending in the event of lengthy absences or dropping out?

Bikerrich on January 23, 2012 at 9:22 am

If (G-d forbid) the United States suffers another 9/11 attack or worse, and its Commission similiar to the 9/11 Commission writes a book stating their findings of what led to the attack, they would include re-printing Debbie’s post above as being among the reasons why it would have happened.

JeffE on January 23, 2012 at 10:14 am

The muslims are building an underground army right here in the USA…. they WILL attack us soon I think. Shortly BEFORE the 2012 elections. Mid-October at the latest.

I believe that the USA Govt., under a muslim supported Obama, is in on the whole scheme and Obama plans to use the attacks as an excuse to declare martial law right before the election. And therefore stop the election that he WOULD lose.

Obama does not love America or Americans. He hates Jews, Christians and other non-muslims. He disrespects other faiths as well. For example: After a VERY brief visit to the WH,
he sent the Dali Lama out the back door of the White House in the snow so he had to walk by piles and piles of stinking trashbags by the back door.

Obama is an evil man and the Saudis and the muslims brotherhood are his backers and he is THEIR MAN. REMEMBER HOW HE BOWED TO THAT SAUDI KING? Just look how he is making it possible for the muslim brotherhood to take over countries and HOW HE DOES nothing to encourage the muslims to be fair to their non-islamic populations.

@JeffE: “If (G-d forbid) the United States suffers another 9/11 attack or worse”

It’s a matter of when, not if.

“the 9/11 Commission writes a book stating their findings of what led to the attack, they would include re-printing Debbie’s post above as being among the reasons why it would have happened.”

No they won’t. Another attack will lead to more guilty hand-wringing and islamo-pandering. They’ll point to the speakers of the truth as the reason for the attack because we “agitated” the friendly, peaceful muslims.

DS_ROCKS! on January 23, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    Unfortunately you’re probably right, since all things Islamic received PC protection after 9/11.

    JeffE on January 23, 2012 at 10:03 pm

Yeah, and the TSA has detained Rand Paul! You’re correct. Nobody knows and nobody cares and USA circles around the drain again before it takes the inevitable plunge!

Hussein is chugging along at a fast clip. His anxiety about NOT being re-elected is not stopping him. NDAA. The deep cutting of the military to “supposedly” lower the deficit (only dopey Liberals who don’t follow the policies think that). The gradual liberties given to illegal aliens (meaning, slowing and bit by bit USA is NOT enforcing the laws, as DS discusses above). The “fuzzy math” of the false statistics of what the REAL unemployment numbers are. The year given to religious organizations to get over their religions objections and distribute birth control. The white-wash and glorification of the stinkin’ OWS (bowel) Movement.

“Quinn & Rose” had on an author named Marinka Peschmann who has a new book called “The Whistleblower: How The Clinton White House Stayed In Power To Re-emerge In The Obama White House And On The World Stage”. It is worth reading to remind oneself of just how corrupt (yet still press-darlings!)the Clintons were. And how we will NEVER win if people don’t fight these vermin instead of letting them win (even if one’s livelihood is at stake). Someone HAS to do it!

I have always cringed when people (overwhelmed by the Obama Administration) try to remember the Clintons with a sense of relief as if they would be preferable in office. I. Don’t. EVER!

And Lara Logan is back on the scene. And when the articles on her promoting her current work mention her PTSD but NOT that what Mooooooslim gangs of animals did to her IS about Islam and their jihad on the entire world, you will know why we are circling the drain.

My guess is that Obama’s policy re the Middle East is now being driven by Saudi Arabia and their allies in the area. Whatever the case it’s certainly not concern for Israel which is the primary factor.
The Saudis are bitter enemies of the Iranians of whom they are terrified. Because of Saudi financial and oil resources they are able to blackmail Europe and the U.S. and force the timing and nature of any attack on the Iranian nuke program. The Saudis are making not-very-subtle efforts to purchase nuclear weapons from China and Pakistan. This is their ultimate bargaining chip. A nuclear arms race in the Mid-East is unthinkable even for the incompetents and idealists in the White House. The upsurge in visa applications are probably from influential families trying to get members out before all hell breaks loose. It perfectly fits the conquest through immigration strategy and if a few uber Jihadis are slipped in as extra persuaders, so much the better.

Davy Crockitt on January 23, 2012 at 1:13 pm

Amen DS!
And unfortunately you are right — no one cares. I am treated like a pariah every time I bring the topic up on many websites. They will care though when the next 9/11 happens. El presidente Jorge Boosh was simply ignorant. Not so with Obama. This is part of his on-going outreach to the Muslim Brotherhood. He is very concerned about looking good in their eyes.

Arathma on January 23, 2012 at 1:33 pm

No past presidential administration, not even Carter’s, deserves mention in the same breath as any rational description of the Obama nightmare. With the election less than a year away I tremble at the thought of his reelection. It just couldn’t be possible that enough voters remain in the coma ward to damn us to another four years. Could it?
Excuse me while a breathe into a paper bag.

lee, of the lower case "l" on January 23, 2012 at 3:21 pm

The tactic: flood the Immigration Dept. No, OVERHELM THEM with pplications and watch many fall through the cracks as the Feds rubber stamp these vises to get them off their desks. GIGO.

After my 11 month old daughter was adopted in Guatemala, it took 1 month for the world’s cutest girl to get approval to come home to the USA.

November 6, 2012 can’t come too soon!

Occam's Tool on January 23, 2012 at 7:42 pm

heck my bf is here on a visa and can get health care and im an american citizen and cant get jack crap…and to that one…im glad u adopted a baby but we have plenty here within the u.s. that needs a home …thats the problem within the states…take care of everyone else in the world others than the ones that r here

Angel on January 24, 2012 at 4:21 pm

My husband is an expat in Saudi Arabia, one time we went to US embassy they turn us down because they give more priority to Saudi visa applicants they only give us US citizens 3 hrs a day if we need something important.
Another thing, just to add pages in our passport, we have to pay $85 thanks to Obama & just to have simple notary for a US citizen has to pay $50.00. The US govt didn’t realized that even if we are outside of US we still pay a lot of taxes more than an averaged American back home but they still treat us like outsider worst they treat Saudis better than us.

Pinch on January 25, 2012 at 12:56 am

The United States should do something about the illegal immigrants. They are taking our jobs and Obama just does not get it. Someone please tell him that his unemployment is up more than he suggests.

Alicia Bird on January 26, 2012 at 12:27 pm

At Disneyworld, eh?

How appropriate! Shows what a Mickey Mouse operation his entire presidency is…

Saudis becoming American citizens? What kind of drugs are you on… arabs from the Gulf states are happy with their unemployment benefits from their governments, they dont need to collect foodstamps in the US.
