FBI: 15% Of Terror Investigations Involve Refugees

Former-FBI Director James Comey on Monday told the Senate committee of crimes committed by illegal immigrants and refugees .

Exert of testimony of FBI Director James

COMEY: [W]e have about 1,000 home grown violent extremist investigations and we probably have another 1,000 or so that are — I should define my terms. Home grown violent extremists, we mean somebody — we have no indication that they’re in touch with any terrorists.

[SEN] TILLIS: Any foreign touch. Right.

COMEY: Yes. Then we have another big group of people that we’re looking at who we see some contact with foreign terrorists. So you take that 2,000 plus cases, about 300 of them are people who came to the United States as refugees. DailyWire

This is the direct opposite of statements that refugees pose no threat to national security.

So 15 percent of the FBI’s terrorism cases are refugees – far more than their share of the immigrant population, let alone the general population. And that denominator of 2,000 presumably includes people with no immigration nexus at all – skinheads, antifa, Klan, environmental and animal rights extremists, et al. So the refugee share of immigration-related terrorism investigations is more than 15 percent, perhaps much more.  Mark Krikorian at National Review

If vetting alone doesn’t work and banning travel from selected countries is merely a band-aid, what’s left? Simple: The U.S. can’t allow refugees to resettle here. Unless it is an extraordinary emergency, as Krikorian poses, but “even the UN refugee agency acknowledges that emergency cases make up only 0.4 percent of its resettlement referrals.”

“Help refugees where they are – our money goes much, much further and we can keep the security threats off shore,” Krikorian concludes.  TruthRevolt
