US officials warn: Canada’s Syrian refugee plan puts the US at risk

American lawmakers and immigration experts are sounding an alarm about the Liberal Party’s plan to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees by February, 2016.
During the fall’s election campaign, then Prime Minister Harper promised that if re-elected, the Conservative government would admit 10,000 Syrian and Iraqi refugees over four years. The Liberals campaigned on the promise to bring 25,000 Syrian refugees to Canada by December 31, 2015, or roughly 10 weeks after winning the election on October 19, 2015.
On December 18 Fox News reported that U.S. officials voiced their concerns about Canada’s inability to properly screen 25,000 refugees, 10,000 of whom will be airlifted to Canada by December 31, 2015, with the remaining 15,000 to be resettled by February, 2016.
Senator Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee said: “There is a concern with this large volume in such a short period of time that adequate vetting may not be occurring. It is an obvious concern that without robust vetting by Canada, these individuals could represent a threat to America given our porous border.”
Trudeau’s plan isn’t sitting well with some experts who wonder if the Liberal government is downplaying the risks associated with letting in thousands of refugees from war-torn Syria.
Marguerite Telford from the Center for Immigration Studies (a non-profit research organization that advocates immigration reduction in the United States said: “The majority of these refugees, all receiving permanent residence, will settle in Toronto and Montreal – cities in close proximity to the U.S. border. How many will join terrorist sleeper cells, which we are told exist in all 50 states?”
On November 30, 2015, Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) released a 100 page report on the state of America’s borders which concludes that a terrorist trying to cross the border into the U.S. would be able to enter the country much more easily from Canada than Mexico, and argues that Canada represents a substantial vulnerability because it provides immigrant visas to individuals who pose a significant threat.
The report also includes testimony from experts who caution that if someone with questionable intentions gets into Canada, they will be able to enter the United States with relative ease.
The Liberal government’s ability to effectively screen 25,000 refugees in a matter of weeks has also been questioned by Canadian immigration experts. Guidy Mamann, a Toronto-based Immigration lawyer, warned that accepting 25,000 refugees and landing them in Canada in such a short period of time is a “very, very tall order”. According to Mamann, who has been practicing immigration law for over 30 years, “something is going to have to be missed in order to do what Trudeau said he is going to do.”
An additional concern relates to the fact that some Syrians selected for resettlement in Canada come from refugee camps in Lebanon, which Minister of Immigration John McCallum visited on Friday, December 18 in order to personally oversee the implementation of the rushed resettlement. In September, Lebanese education minister Elias Bousaab, warned the British Prime Minister David Cameron about the increasing influence of ISIS inside the Syrian refugee camps in Lebanon. The Lebanese Minister told Cameron that ISIS operates in the refugee camps radicalizing the children before trafficking them to Western countries. He estimated that that two in every 100 Syrian migrants who are resettled in the West are ISIS-radicalized persons.

One thing is for sure, if, God forbid, an attack is made on U.S. soil, and it comes from Canada, not only will our relationship with America suffer, but also our economy and the financial security of the people. Why does this man child and his friends not figure this out, unless there is an anti-American sentiment in their ranks.
Then again that's what happens when someone is put in a position of power, without the slightest experience and who never held a steady job in his life, raised and lived in a posh neighborhood that does not have everyday realities like the rest of us...
