We Little People have been warning about this from the beginning. Congress then has hearings where they’re told about it by officials. And then the GOP-run Congress gives Obama a budget CR that funds his so-called refugee program, the illegal alien programs and everything else.

And they wonder why we’re mad.

Via Fox News.

Violent extremists, criminals and foreign fighters are part of the daily refugee flow into Europe, the top NATO commander in Europe told lawmakers, “masking the movement” of these dangerous elements and heightening the potential for an attack.

In testimony Tuesday before the Senate Armed Services Committee, U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove said ISIS is “spreading like a cancer” within this mix, “taking advantage of paths of least resistance, threatening European nations” and the United States.

Breedlove later told reporters that he has asked for more U.S. forces to be permanently based in Europe, which is facing threats from a more aggressive Russia as well as ISIS…

In response to a question about whether ISIS will continue to infiltrate refugee flows, Breedlove said, “I think that they are doing that today.”

Those fears fueled legislation that would crack down on Syrian and Iraqi refugees seeking to enter the United States. A House-passed bill would require new FBI background checks and individual sign-offs from three high-ranking federal officials before any refugee from Syria or Iraq could enter the country.

The legislation cleared the House in November in the aftermath of the Paris attacks. It received 289 votes, a veto-proof margin that included 47 Democrats — despite President Barack Obama’s opposition. But in January, Senate Democrats blocked the legislation, saying it reflected Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s call to bar Muslims from coming to the United States.

Funny how the GOP allows the Dems to control and stop whatever legislation they want. Weird that the GOP seemed to have no power at all in the Senate when they were the minority.
