ISIS infiltration

The Obama administration plans to allow at least 65,000 refugees from Syria and, Lord knows where else, to enter the United States this year and 10,000 immediately. ISIS has declared their intention to infiltrate this influx with their terrorists.

The French president had the courage and good sense to close his country’s borders. Congress should immediately pass an emergency measure to close all our borders until further notice. There should be enough patriotic congressmen and senators, even among Democrats, to muster enough votes to override a probable Obama veto of such an urgent and critical decision.

White House spokesmen say they can weed out the terrorists among the refugees. Hogwash! This is the time to protect our citizens, not be politically correct. Lives are at stake.
