WARNING: Over 300 OF THE 1000 PEOPLE BEING INVESTIGATED BY THE FBI ARE REFUGEES.

Almost a third of the FBI’s 1,000 active terror-related investigations involve people who came to the United States as refugees. That's what Attorney General Jeff Sessions just said in defense of President Trump’s executive order which temporarily bans refugees from entering the United States.

President Trump’s revised order came with new claims by administration officials about the potential danger that refugees pose to national security. The order temporarily pauses all refugee resettlement in the United States for 120 days. This will allow the refugee application process to be evaluated. Our country must decide how it can strengthen and make sure refugees admitted to the U.S. do not pose a security threat.

 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Defends Travel Ban:

“People seeking to support or commit terrorist attacks here will try to enter through our refugee program,” said Mr. Sessions. “Today more than 300 people who came here as refugees are under FBI investigation for potential terrorism-related activities.”

It's not surprising that the Justice Department nor the FBI is providing more details on the 300 people who are under investigation. President Trump’s travel ban seeks to temporarily keep those who might try to exploit the refugee program in order to gain entry to the U.S. It's difficult to pinpoint those who have become radicalized after arriving in the U.S.  It's better to make the process more vigorous by utilizing “extreme vetting” before immigrants come to the United States from terror hotbeds.

This is frightening. And yet not surprising at all.
