Obama Slashes Syrian Refugee Vetting Time to Three Months
As part of a new surge operation aimed at meeting President Obama’s self-imposed goal of resettling 10,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the fiscal year, the administration has decided to rush the refugee vetting process that is supposed to ensure the safety and security of the American people. (Washington Times
, Apr. 7, 2016) “While the resettlement process usually takes 18 to 24 months, under the surge operation this will be reduced to three months
,” said Gina Kassem, the regional refugee coordinator in Amman, Jordan. (Id.
) Approximately 1,000 refugees processed through a new resettlement center in Amman were resettled in the United States last week, marking the first wave of the surge. (Id.
) The center was opened last February to help meet the president’s goal and is expected to interview 600 Syrian refugees daily. (Id.
) Kassem noted that the amount of refugees resettled in the country could eclipse 10,000. (Id.
) “[10,000] is a floor, not a ceiling and it is possible to increase the number,” she said. (Id.
) The decision to expedite the vetting process contradicts reassurances given by President Obama when he lectured Americans leery of accepting refugees after the deadly Paris massacre last November. (CNS News

) “They are subjected to the most rigorous process conceivable.” (Id.
) Now, just two weeks after the attacks in Brussels and renewed promises by ISIS to infiltrate operatives in Western nations to carry out terrorist attacks, the president is putting the American public at risk by making an already inadequate vetting process even less secure.]]>
