Republican Donald Trump told a crowd of supporters in New Hampshire that should he be elected, the Syrian refugees Obama is allowing into the country will all be headed back from whence they came.
The migrant crisis, a by-product of President Obama’s failed foreign policy in the Middle East, has led to thousands of refugees being accepted into the United States this year. It is a dangerous prospect to be sure, but a President Trump isn’t going to stand for it.
Via The Hill:
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump says if he takes the White House, he will send back Syrian refugees coming to the U.S.
“I’m putting the people on notice that are coming here from Syria as part of this mass migration,” he told an audience in Keene, N.H.
“If I win, they’re going back. They’re going back. I’m telling you. They’re going back.”
Watch Trump’s comments below…
A panelist on Greta Van Susteren’s show immediately claims that these comments fit with Trump’s “anti-immigration rhetoric,” which is an absurd statement on two fronts.
First, Trump doesn’t have an “anti-immigration” stance, he has an anti-illegal immigration stance.
Secondly, he isn’t saying this because it’s an immigration problem. He’d be sending Syrian refugees back because of the inherent dangers involved in opening your doors to a Middle Eastern country in the midst of a civil war.
A Homeland Security Director recently confirmed that it would be nearly impossible to prevent ISIS terrorists from being part of those coming into America.
Therefore, the comments actually fit more in line with Trump’s pro-American security rhetoric.
Comment: If a Republican becomes President, should they send the Syrian refugees back over terrorist concerns?
