Today, October 1, 2016 is the opening day of the last of Obama’s driving efforts to change America by changing its people.A few weeks ago he presented to Congress his determination to admit 110,000 refugees from around the world over the next 12 months with the largest numbers coming from the Middle East and Muslim-controlled countries of Africa.But, if Hillary is elected president on November 8th, Obama will look like a piker.Could Hillary dramatically expand refugee admissions numbers? Yes, she can! Will she? I think so!No where did Obama ever say he wanted 65,000 Syrians admitted to the US, but Hillary is on record (Face the Nation, September 2015) saying that, and I am guessing that will only be the beginning for her.After all, she just this week said that the foreign leader she admired most is German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Merkel!!! who is widely believed to be destroying Germany and has thrown all of Europe in chaos with her ‘welcome’ of any refugee from Africa and the Middle East who can get there!Remember the other day I wrote about the fact that the number determined by the President at the end of the fiscal year for the following year is a ceiling set by the President in consultation with Congress.‘Consultation’ is a squishy term as we have seen for the last 35 years and is virtually non-existent (except for a brief chit chat between the Secretary of State and two key committees on the Hill). Each September, the President sends up his refugee numbers for the upcoming year and for years Congress simply slipped his plan into a drawer somewhere and never even held hearings. Senator Sessions’ hearing last fall (2015) was the first since 9/11.The only real power the Congress has is to limit the funding for the federal agencies involved, something I have never seen done!So, back to Hillary and the power of the Presidency as it relates to this law.One of Hillary’s long time political allies is John Podesta, Chairman of her 2016 Presidential campaign. Do you know that his organization (an organization Hillary helped create with George Soros) proposed an AIRLIFT in 2009 of 100,000 Iraqis to America which they pushed on the new President Obama? He didn’t bite.The plan called for Iraqis to be held offshore somewhere until they could be processed into the US. More recently Canada’s boy Trudeau airlifted tens of thousands of Syrians to Canada. If President, could Hillary do this? Yes she can!Refugee Act’s emergency provisionThere is a very clear provision, which I don’t think has been used (the large crush of Vietnamese came before the Refugee Act of 1980 became law), but I think Hillary will use it. By defeating Donald Trump, she will feel she has a mandate to open our borders. There definitely won’t be a border fence built and I predict she will use every lawful means available to admit as many migrants as she can, including the emergency provisions of the Refugee Act of 1980.Could she add her 65,000 Syrians to the 110,000 refugees Obama proposed for FY2017, or could she go even higher? Yes, she could knowing that the Congress, even if Republicans still hold the majority, is weak and will be further demoralized by her win.Heck her role model, Mama Merkel, admitted over a million in the last year. Not to look ‘unwelcoming’ by comparison, Hillary could easily bump our numbers up to a quarter of a million! (That would be in addition to the masses of asylum seekers—-phony refugees—now streaming across our southern border.)See (Refugee Act of 1980): Consultation with Congress, big deal! No teeth! And, I expect no fight if Hillary is in the White House!Will Hillary go there? Yes, I believe she will.
Refugee flood gates open even wider if Hillary elected on November 8th
