GOP Candidate Marco Supporting Syrian Refuge Settlement in America


(Breitbart) – Sen. Marco Rubio is standing by his support for bringing Syrian refugees into the United States of America, even after the Paris murder-rampage by some of the many Muslims migrating into Europe.
In September, Rubio told CNN that “we would be potentially open to the relocation of some of these [refugee] individuals at some point in time to the United States.”
On Saturday, Breitbart asked Rubio’s campaign if he still stands by this statement. In response, Rubio’s spokesman Alex Conant referred Breitbart News to two other previous interviews Rubio has done on the matter—essentially confirming that Rubio still supports, at this time, bringing Syrian refugees into America.
Conant insisted the Senator believes refugees need to be vetted. But there are increasing concerns about whether the Barack Obama administration will be able to effectively vet such refugees.Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) , the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, said recently he believes there is no way to accurately vet the Syrian refugees. “We do not have access to any Syrian government database to learn the backgrounds of these refugee applicants,” Sessions said in a recent statement.
Several more bullet points from Sessions’ statement raised more concerns about the ability to vet the refugees.
“We have no capacity to determine the likelihood that Islamist refugees, once admitted to the United States, will become involved with terrorist activity,” Sessions said.
“We are already struggling with a huge problem of prior Islamist refugees seeking to take up arms with terrorists, and we have every expectation that the Administration’s current refugee plans will exacerbate that problem,” Sessions added.
“It is not a probability, but a certainty, that among the more than 1 million migrants from Muslim countries we will admit over the next decade, a number will already be radicalized or radicalize after their entrance into the U.S.,” he said.
Rubio’s continued support for Syrian refugees come after refugees have been initially connected to what’s happening in Paris.
