OUTRAGE: Syrian Muslims Seeking US Asylum Via Mexico Get 100% Approval, Green Cards

By Debbie Schlussel

Syrian and Iraqi Muslims seeking asylum in the United States via Mexico are getting 100% approval from the Department of Homeland Security and being granted green cards, even AFTER they were rejected for tourist visas to the U.S. by U.S. Embassy officials in their native Muslim nations. It makes you wonder why we even have this process. We might as well just open the floodgates to anyone seeking entry to America. That’s basically what is happening for those who know how to game the system.

Check Out the Percentage of Muslim Asylum Seekers Granted a Golden Ticket Into the U.S. . . .


Recently, I told you about the increase in juvenile illegal aliens caught at the Southern border with Mexico and “reverse escorted” into the northern U.S. by ICE agents who are ordered to do this. The aliens know what to say and how to claim asylum, and if they don’t, they are lawyered up, once they are put in pro-illegal alien charity “shelters.” And, as I’ve noted, the Obama Administration has made it much easier for those seeking asylum to remain here and game the system forever. And, now, Muslims have learned to similarly game the asylum system from Mexico. If they are rejected by the U.S. Embassy in their home country, they know that trying it from Mexico is the charm.

In 2012, after being imprisoned and beaten [DS: how does the WSJ know this is fact? Were they there to verify? Nope.], a Syrian dissident named Mohammad fled to neighboring Lebanon, where he applied for and was denied a U.S. tourist visa. Intent on rebuilding his life with family in California, he flew to Mexico City and then Tijuana. There, he crossed the U.S. border illegally and handed himself over to a customs official, seeking asylum. Last month, the U.S. granted him that status. In a year, he will be eligible to apply for permanent U.S. residency.

With the three-year-old Syrian conflict raging on, and U.S. embassies in the Middle East increasingly denying tourist visas, more Syrians are arriving in Mexico on tourist visas and using the country as a gateway to possible U.S. asylum. A Mexican embassy spokesman “had no comment on this matter.” Some say the phenomenon underscores the need for a more coordinated international response to the Syrian crisis, while others worry it may offer too easy a path to U.S. residence for potential terrorists, given al Qaeda’s rising presence in Syria.

That’s exactly what it is. We have no idea who these people are. They can provide any name they want, and we have no way of verifying it. The WSJ reports as fact that this guy was imprisoned and beaten, but it has no way of verifying this claim, NOR do the adjudicators in Citzenship and Immigration Services at Homeland Security. But they are approving 100% of these applications and 94% of applications from Iraqis–you know, the country we “liberated” and where it’s now a fine and dandy democracy . . . and yet we recognize asylum claims from there. Why?

The Department of Homeland Security in fiscal 2013 recorded 118 Syrian “credible-fear” referrals such as Mohammad’s, up from five in fiscal 2010. In these cases, migrants declare fear of harm if returned to their home country and may stay in the U.S. while pursuing asylum. After being detained, those who pass a credible-fear interview are released to relatives and face possible deportation. The U.S., though, allows the vast majority to remain here.

That’s the Obama change to the asylum application process. He made it easier for them to just remain here while they game the system.

In fiscal 2013, the U.S. approved 94% of Syrians’ credible-fear requests; it approved every case in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. Overall in fiscal 2013, 36,026 individuals from many nations sought credible-fear status, according to DHS, with 84% of those requests granted. While the number of Syrians detained at the Mexican border is tiny compared with that of Central Americans, it dwarfs arrivals from other Middle Eastern countries, such as Iraq. Immigration attorneys and refugee experts said they expect a bigger surge this year as the Syrian civil war grinds on. “In the next six months to a year, you will see even more Syrians crossing into the United States from Mexico,” said Alan Anzarouth, the San Diego immigration attorney who represented Mohammad. . . .

At a hearing focused on asylum fraud in the U.S. House last week, Republicans criticized the Obama administration for its overall rate of approval of asylum applications, which rose to 46% in 2013 from 28% in 2007. Some lawmakers also have raised concerns about the potential for terrorists entering the U.S. as refugees, after measures were announced earlier this month to relax some security rules that now disqualify some applicants.

Yup, earlier this month Obama said that if you helped terrorists, no biggie. We’ll still let you in. It’s absurd.

At the beginning of the war, it was easier for Syrians to secure U.S. visas. Those who entered the U.S. in recent years with visas to study, work or tour also have been increasingly claiming asylum. In fiscal 2013, such applications numbered 1,335, up from 36 in 2010.But as the conflict has flared, the U.S. has denied a higher proportion of Syrian visa requests: 46% in fiscal 2013 compared with 28% three years earlier. Many don’t qualify because they can’t prove they will return home after visiting the U.S. Thus, hundreds of Syrians, including women and children, have begun to show up at the U.S.-Mexico border prepared to seek asylum. . . .

At a Jan. 27 trial, a U.S. immigration judge granted him [Mohammad] asylum, terminating his deportation case. Five years from now, he can apply for U.S. citizenship.

And Mohammad’s case is one of those in which Homeland Security didn’t grant him asylum and he challenged it to an immigration judge. Yes, these illegal aliens get several bites at the apple. Because our immigration system is a joke.

And, yet, Obama and the Republicans keep pushing for “immigration reform” that is anything but.

Look for hundreds and thousands of Muslims to come to the Mexican border and do the same thing.

Shukran [Thanks], America! . . .

    Joshua foretold some of Israel’s fate: The Lord said to Joshua, ‘get up! Why have you fallen on your face? Israel has sinned; they have transgressed my covenant that I commanded them;
    … sin today is much the same as then.

    Karen on February 25, 2014 at 5:50 pm

    I imagine that Christ would welcome immigrants seeking a better life with open arms. Those who follow him shouod put aside their fear and hatred. What is the most disturbing is the lack of information and education surrounding the hate this article and the post are spreading. Did any person on this site biother to look at statistics on illegal immigration and crime? Did anyone bother to look at, statistically, how unlikely it is that any muslim immigrant would harm you or anyone else? Your fear is based on ignorance and moral laziness and it does impact the lives of other people. How DARE you try and deny the right to seei a better life to others WITHOUT evidence (BTW evidence does not mean listening to some other hate filled idiot–try statistics, studies, even getting to know some of these people. Get this evidence from as many sources as possible in order to weed out the good sources from the bad, but demand proof to back up any sentiment or action that goes towards denying others the right to a better life. You should all be ashamed of yourselves!!!

.. because Obama truly does want America destroyed. He really will dance on our graves. Now, here’s what should make your blood boil .. the Secret Service and our Military will continue to protect him until we are all dead because they believe more in their “mission” than they do in the Sanctity and survival of the United States of America.

Radicalism of ‘Islamic Muslims’ has cost American taxpayers Trillions of Dollars for Americans security since the 1st specific attack of ‘Islamic Muslims’ flying hijacked airplanes into the World Center buildings in New York on 9/11/01. Many other attacks have been followed in the USA and around the world.

Here is the ‘specific reason’ as to why all legislators on Capitol Hill should vote ‘NAY’ on any so-called ‘immigration’ reform. There is nothing wrong with our current ‘immigration’ law except our elected and appointed officials are ignoring the laws and/or refusing to enforce the existing laws.

Now, more radical ‘Islamic Muslims’ are being invited and are coming into the USA. How stupid are our government officials? Is it all for more of their ‘oil money’; all at Americans’ lives?

    hi, i was surfing the net and reading about asylum and Muslim who seeking it, there are so many to tell as i agree with some and disagree with others;
    1) US is not heaven, people are brain washed by the media and the same thing happening in Middle East but with the opposite View.
    2) some mentioned that the war middle east is caused by Arab, and that is partially true because there is no smoke without fire.
    3) To help those asking for asylum instead of traveling 10000 miles and to protected US from the exterminate why the US GOV do not force Arab Countries esp. the Gulf like KSA and Dubai to accept these cases or at least give SSN and Nationality for those who lived in them lands for more than 10 years or more and save everybody.
    4) i met many Muslim people when traveled to US, many already joined the community and they believe that at last they found HOME as many may be do not know that to be a Muslim in Middle east can make you big problems because if a militia ask you to join them or ask you to kill someone and you reject then they will kill you…
    5) few hundreds of asylum seekers do not make big troubles, the Mexican, Chinese, Japanese all were before that.

I think they’re gearing up for Syria round 2 as well.

Frankz on February 25, 2014 at 5:35 pm

@ Skzion “Then Big D, why do you sometimes come here and troll and make unfunny jokes at Debbie’s or this blog’s expense?”

Because me being the mature intellect that I am, I being a free-thinker, sometimes agree with Debbie, and others times I may not, but I still like and enjoy her blog. That’s why.

As far as a corny joke, I must not had much to say that day.
and B.U.A.N is alive and well!

Big D on February 25, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    You’re not as smart as you think you are. You’re going by liberals who mollycoddle and praise you out of guilt and fear and you actually believe their praise to be so.

    DS_ROCKS! on February 26, 2014 at 1:44 am

Thanks Debbie, for the never ending stream of information regarding the suicide that our “once great republic” is involved in. And on the eve of the 21st anniversary of the first Word Trade Center attack, no less.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 25, 2014 at 6:57 pm

America will never be conquered by a greater or stronger force.
We will commit suicide instead.

None of this matters, just as long as the free healthcare, welfare checks, EBT cards and Obama phones keep flowing for free.
When we collapse and maybe in a few hundred years from now enough people get together and form a new country I hope they will learn from our mistakes and put together a government that is workable.
One of the top priorities in a reformed America should be that anybody that gets aid from the government and is not a taxpayer can NOT vote.

Steve G on February 25, 2014 at 8:13 pm

What about our truly “credible-fear” of letting these filthy muslims into our country?

There are over a million refugees from the war in Syria. This war is caused by Arabs perpetuating war.

For some strange reason, the news media and State Department don’t seem to make much of a fuss about these refugees. Rather, they make a fuss about refugees whose status they can falsely blame on Jews.

A million refugees! All of them are a result of Arab tyranny and war. Yesterday, the news headlines said Israel bombed a Hezbollah weapons cache in Lebanon. The stories went on to “report” a war that occurred in 2006. (That’s EIGHT years ago for those of you who can do the math.) There were no headline stories about the ongoing war in Syria and the ONE MILLION refugees caused by it.

Only when refugees end up in the U.S. does someone take notice? Rarely does anyone make the connection that Arab refugees are caused by Arab wars and Arab tyranny. That’s because doing so would require them to change the narrative on the War Against Israel.

Regardless of where Arab refugees end up, many will carry with them the culture of war and tyranny; terrorists or not. Yet the only thing the U.S. media can focus on is their status as “victims” because that’s the new American way: Claim victimhood; demand reparations.

The only reason there is a “Palestinian Narrative” on the War Against Israel is the habit of the liberal elite to overlook the culture of tyranny and war that prevails in the Arab League of Nations. Every time this culture of tyranny and war is exposed, public polls show a “magical” jump in public support for Israel. Talk about immigration all you want! I think we’re all missing the real story.


There is NO Santa Claus (aka TINSC)

What else can we expect from a Muslim president. The Obamanation is showing his true agenda and we are not paying attention. Great article Debbie. Shared.

Naomi R. on February 26, 2014 at 9:31 am

But, Debbie, Imam Barak needs these fighters to fill in the ranks of his well-armed “private army.”

No doubt the arab fighters are allowed to bring in their rifles, RPGs and C4. Add the Che-loving illegals from the south, the NOI, Black Panthers and other malcontents will man this new force.

As long as there is absolutely NO OPPOSITION from congress, this dissolution of the USA will go unabated.

Hans Schaden on February 26, 2014 at 9:41 am

Maybe our Marxist in chief will join Prince Charles in his f*&#ing Muslim sword dance.

The immigration laws are on the books and can work if the teeth of them aren’t pulled. Unfortunately, that’s not been the case for many years as the responsible agencies continue to be inundated with spineless, PC kool-aid drinkers who are more concerned with their political kingdoms than the security and welfare of this nation. I have little concern and even less sympathy for their “plight”…they brought it on and the country suffers an embarrassing black eye and ridicule.

I’d laugh my a** off at the whole situation and the pathetic butt-snorkelers in charge if it wasn’t so shameful. Glad to have washed my hands and left it in the rear view mirror.

IceNoMore on February 26, 2014 at 1:39 pm

Ice, you were obviously an agent with a social conscience, and a sense of right and wrong. But that’s the problem. And although he’s talking on other subjects today, what Rush has explored is sort of tied in to the whole cultural malaise.

Let’s take a look at two famous old sayings, the first being Jimmy Hoffa’s statement, “sooner or later, everybody does business with everybody.” And that leads directly in to the next, which is “if the fish stinks, it stinks, from the head down.”

All the corporate prostitution, for example one that reading Debbie’s column taught me, the 19% Saudi ownership of (Not So) FOX(y)-News. Alliances like that can cause more and more cultural filth and degradation, plus many other alliances, more insidious, such as George Soros-Media Matters, etal. And we all know about a general populace all too obsessed with Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, etal.

So, where are the conscientious, and why is everything so upside down? Because the leaders come from the people, and when the fish stinks as bad as it does in today’s America, you’ve got a rudderless ship. The whole culture is corrupt, from head to toe, we are doomed as a result. There isn’t anyone who could arise successfully. Look at Dr. Carson, how many ears has his voice reached?

It’s too late to stop the cancer, the body is actually dead already. The stupid brain just doesn’t realize it yet. There are too many people left alive who still cherish liberty in lieu of tyranny. When we are disposed of, tyranny will reign supreme.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 26, 2014 at 1:55 pm

I would say “They can mow my grass”, but they’re not going to work. Like we don’t have enough criminal scum from Mexico already. Texas is already Baja Mexico. Maybe they mow Dubya’s grass in Dallas.

Pray Hard on February 26, 2014 at 3:07 pm

It is “Now Time” to militarize our borders.

To hell with human rights, to hell with civil rights, and in fact, to hell with immigration period. “Your huddled masses” whispered through the torch held by Lady Liberty herself, must now be silenced and/or abolished. The United States of America has gone well beyond its kindness.

The world is now filled with pathetic ignorance, well beyond Webster’s definitions.

It is now time to equate terrorism and third world annoyance with AIDS, as in useless and therefore permanently destroy it. Get rid of it forever. Plain and simple. Nobody can argue otherwise unless of course you are a tunnel worshipper. Bleeding heart thought and theory is what got us into this mess. TSA would need to be replaced by American military. There are those who might equste my thoughts with socialism or even a taste of communism. Great!!

You see, society, as pathetic as it has become, and by virtue of putting that piss poor excuse for an American into the oval office, has, by proxy, put the icing on the socialist cake. Martial Law is gonna be an essential compenent in the rebuilding of America. Freedoms provided by the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the very military that obama, the womb rejected puke, is trying hard to abolish, are for all intent and purpose, GONE.. Corporate America must and will pay…. and so must obama and his entire circus!!

The continent of africa is a disgusting global waste. If there were such truths of alien life, certainly, they would look at africa and make a mad dash back into the deepest depths of galactic wonders.

Syria is importing terrorists through Holder, Obama, Kerry, and these other pieces of human inconvenience and anybody wants to do is go to their computer.

Has anybody figured out why obama wants to degrade and downgrade and liyerally cut our miliyary forces?? He fears them as does his circus of an administration. Politicians who are kissing his filthy ass are goin into the corners.

Muslims coming into America under the cover of mexicans. Hmmm.. Somalian pieces of shit are coming in through canada.. Istael has militarized its borders andcairports. We need to take lessons…

oifmack on February 26, 2014 at 5:41 pm

O’bummer will increase the momemtum of his aiding and abetting his terrorist muslim brothers as his term nears its end. Keep a close eye.

HK on February 26, 2014 at 10:49 pm

Well Debbie.. I am guessing the next Boston bombing will just be put down to more platitudes and a nice slogan ie “Boston Strong”. Tis a damned shame stupid people are in charge !!

JohnyAngel Advocacy Group on April 15, 2014 at 2:44 pm

Well done!! Thankyou for assisting in spreading the truth about our countries “open door” policies. An alarming and ever growing number of our fellow Americans are not infact American at all. Our future as a great nation, whom our ancestors fought for and paid for with their lives, I fear is being jeopardized everday we continue to let everyone and anyone just walk through our borders. Please continue with your informative publications and in helping educate others about what is happening to our land of the free.
