Obama – No Background Checks

President Obama is not in favor of background check on refugees calling them too cumbersome. He did not even change his stance following the terrorist attack in Paris France.

Hillary Says Let’s Take in 65,000 Syrian Refugees

On September 20, 2015, Hillary proposed takingin 65,000 Syrian refugees on Face the Nation.

I would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000 and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people that we would take in.”
She said there should be a focus on admitting the most vulnerable, like persecuted religious minorities, or those who had been brutalized, like the Yazidi women.
Clinton also said, “I want the United States to lead the world,” and said the United Nations Secretary General should call for a meeting at the upcoming U.N. General Assembly meeting in which countries make specific commitments about to provide money and aid.
The former secretary of state was an early proponent of arming moderate rebels inside Syria at the beginning of the conflict in order to fight the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, but the administration did not begin a train and equip program until after she left her post as secretary of state, but has been plagued by problems. A top U.S. commander in the Middle East admitted last week that only four or five moderate Syrian fighters the U.S. trained still remained on the battlefield.

  2. On November 13, 2015 a series of Coordinated Terrorist Attacks occurred in Paris and the city’s northern suburb, Saint-Denis. The attackers killed 130 people, including 89 at the Bataclan theatre. Another 368 people were injured, 80–99 seriously. Seven of the attackers also died.
