Obama Admin blows off Gov Moonbeam
– Proving the theory that even a broken clock is right at least once a day…..Gov Jerry Brown asks the right question regarding Obama Refugee relocation program:
“In a call with senior Obama administration officials Tuesday evening, several governors demanded they be given access to information about Syrian refugees about to be resettled by the federal government in their states. Top White House officials refused.
On the call several Republican governors and two Democrats — New Hampshire’s Maggie Hassan and California’s Jerry Brown — repeatedly pressed administration officials to share more information about Syrian refugees entering the United States. The governors wanted notifications whenever refugees were resettled in their states, as well as access to classified information collected when the refugees were vetted.
Brown said he favored continuing to admit Syrian refugees but wanted the federal government to hand over information that would allow states to keep track of them, the GOP state official said.
McDonough responded to Brown that there was currently no process in place to give states such information and the administration saw no reason to change the status quo. The non-governmental organizations that help resettle the refugees would have such information.”

– Great article. So the Federal Govt has information, including ‘classified’ information on these ‘refugees’ but refuses to share that information with the states because no current process exists? Why not simply create a new process to share that info?
Recall one of the lessons from 9/11 was the silos of govt refusing to share critical information.
Wonder how Big Govt Jerry Brown feels about his Sanctuary Cities policy in California, refusing to cooperate with the Big Govt Federal authorities on immigration now that they are refusing to cooperate with him?
Why wouldn’t the Obama Admin want to share such vital information? Equally important, why wasn’t this news covered by the MSM?

Obama administration has to change its refugee process, says Jerry Brown
“What exactly is so unreasonable about Brown’s requests anyway? If problems arise with refugees, it won’t be the FBI that deals with the acute issues, but state and local law enforcement. Should they not have access to the information garnered in the vetting process, especially since the White House insists it will be comprehensive enough to allay all fears of potential trouble?”

Six Men from Pakistan, Afghanistan Busted Illegally Entering Arizona from Mexico
“A highly trusted federal agent working under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has confirmed to Breitbart Texas that a group composed of 5 Pakistani men and 1 man from Afghanistan was captured by U.S. Border Patrol agents after having illegally crossed the porous U.S.-Mexico border in the Tucson Sector of Arizona.
Border Patrol agents were unable to do extensive interviews with the six Middle Eastern men because the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) took over the matter. The aliens were immediately transferred to Tucson where the FBI took custody.”

Feds approve US Citizenship for 15 Foreign Terrorists Then Hide Info from Congress
– Drudge / Daily Caller Nov 18 2015
– It can’t be this easy to become a US Citizen.
“Dozens of the U.S. citizens arrested in recent years on terror-related charges are immigrants admitted to the United States legally who later obtained citizenship.
More than 70 U.S. residents have been publicly arrested and charged with conspiring to help, attempting to help, or actually helping terror networks such as Islamic State in recent years. At least 15 of them received U.S. citizenship after being admitted to the country legally, including one of the Boston bombers. ”

HONDURAS CATCHES 5 SYRIANS WITH STOLEN GREEK PASSPORTS HEADED TO U.S.A.
– When Honduras is better at vetting fake Syrian ‘refugees’ than the United States, something is very wrong.
Please note neither President Obama or Governor Brown have yet to provide details on how they can possibly ‘vet’ or do a thorough background check on people who have no documents. Even if they have ‘documents’ it may be next to impossible to assure that many ‘refugees’ will not get through to the US with forged or stolen documents.
Based on this article and others, it is clear since 9/11 that people we let into the country so easily can do devastating and lasting damage to our culture and society. Why wouldn’t we take every precaution?
Maybe Gov Brown will hold a press conference tomorrow to assure how he will personally ensure no terrorists are among the ‘refugees’ he so desperately wants to bring into California?
It might be better if we reminded Gov Moonbeam, that one of our cultural values is: women and children first.
That will be enough for a state like California, but we should tell the president and the gov, women and children first. Let’s see how that goes over with the ‘refugees.’
