At a U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest hearing on Syrian refugee resettlement in the U.S. on October 2, 2015, Committee Chairman Jeff Sessions questioned Barbara Strack, Refugee Affairs Division Chief of the Department of Homeland Security.
“Ms. Strack, there are a number of examples of people who have involved themselves in terrorism since they’ve been in the United States,” Sen. Sessions noted. “Sometimes when they come, they may not be radicalized, but somehow, some way become radicalized. There’s no way you could identify that, I don’t suppose, is it?”
“No, sir,” Strack replied, “we can’t predict the future.”
And yet the Obama administration has continued forward with plans to resettle thousands of Syrian refugees in the United States.
After the hearing, Chairman Sessions observed: “It is not a probability, but a certainty, that among the more than one 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.”
It shouldn’t take a crystal ball to predict what the future on American soil holds if this process continues.
Just look at what happened this weekend in Paris.
