It’s not bad enough that Barack Obama is getting away with his unconstitutional executive action providing a sweeping amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in the U.S., as well as sending a signal to millions more to come get in on the action.

No.

In an announcement heralded only at WND last week, his State Department told us we need to roll out the red carpet for 9,000 Sunni Muslim “refugees” of the Syrian civil war who have been hand-picked by the United Nations to resettle in the U.S.

Do you believe this?

It’s true.

As millions of Christians are being slaughtered by Sunni Muslims, exiled and sent into refugee status throughout the Middle East, the U.N. is handpicking Sunnis from Syria to live in America.

Keep in mind, it is the Sunnis who are waging the civil war against the Syrian government that offers a modicum of protection of religious minorities. The U.S. is backing the Sunnis, who include ISIS! But, don’t worry, I’m sure we can count on the U.S. to select only the “good Sunnis.”

The U.S., of course, is not offering any refugee resettlement for the Christian refugees.

But it gets worse. The 9,000 coming right now represent the first wave of at least 75,000 Syrian refugees headed to the U.S. in the next five years – and they are all likely to be Sunni Muslims. Why?

Because the U.S. government and the U.N. determined that only those refugees “persecuted” by the Syrian government are worthy of resettlement in the U.S. The Sunnis are at war with the Syrian government, which is led by Bashar al-Assad, an Alawite aligned with Iran and the Shia sect of Islam.

The Christian and other non-Sunnis being killed and driven into refugee status in Syria are victims of ISIS and other Sunni warriors, some of whom are supported by the U.S. government.

Where will these Sunni “refugees” go?

They will be relocated to 180 cities in 49 states.

Now, by my reckoning, there are a lot of Sunni-dominated Arab states in the Middle East. So why don’t they resettle these so-called “refugees.” Because they don’t want them. So they will come to the U.S. from Syria, Lebanon and Turkey where they are living in refugee camps – breeding grounds for terrorism.

In 2009, members of al-Qaida entered the U.S. through a similar program to resettle Iraqi refugees. Again, it was the Sunnis who caused most of the refugee problems in Iraq.

The United States has already accepted nearly 2 million refugees from Muslim countries since 1992.

Who’s going to pay for taking care of the refugees? Do I need to tell you? You are. Some mayors in the targeted cities have already requested additional federal aid to support the project. Nancy Denson, the mayor of Athens, Georgia, has already requested her city be excluded from the program until a full accounting of the costs can be tallied. (Good luck with that, mayor.)

Am I just anti-Arab or anti-Syrian? Not at all. My grandparents came from Syria. I am a Syrian-American. I just don’t like to see the U.S. – my home, by the grace of God – becoming the new Middle East.

By the way, the U.S. accepts more refugees from around the world than all other countries combined. It costs more than $1 billion a year to handle the current flow of 70,000 a year. Estimates suggest this total could explode to $10 billion a year.

Can I ask a stupid question?

Do Republicans in Congress know about this?

Never mind. I said it was a stupid question.
