Obama Admin Working to Expand Syrian Refugees in U.S. from 10,000 to 200,000

And free college scholarships to boot!

The Obama administration is in talks with the United Nations to expand the original Syrian "refugee" resettlement estimates of 10,000 entering the U.S. to an astonishing 200,000, according to the Washington Examiner.

The meetings in Geneva have centered on finding "alternate safe pathways" for the migrants to enter America and Europe and one such way is by asking colleges to offer tuition. Another is asking citizens to house those who have already arrived.

Chomping at the bit was the University of Southern California, which announced five free tuition programs for Syrian refugees just last week, as the Examiner reports.

A U.N. advisor who is also a research professor at Georgetown University, Beth Farris, recently stated, "It's time that we no longer work as business as usual."

"Maybe we can tweak some of our immigration policies to enable Syrian-Americans who have lived here to bring not only their kids and spouses but their uncles and their grandmothers," she added. "There may be ways that we could encourage Syrians to come to the U.S. without going through this laborious, time-consuming process of refugee resettlement."

Also noted by the Examiner is a new report on refugee children in America which indicates that they are receiving more direct help from government benefits than America's children living in poverty. 

As the federal government opens the door a little wider for these "refugees," all their baggage, explosive or otherwise, walks in with them while they immediately benefit from our tax dollars.
