Breaking: Michigan Governor Rick Snyder Suspends Syrian Refugee Program

One Tough Gov.: Michigan Governor Rick Snyder

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder says he loves immigrants, but the safety of Michiganders comes first. That’s why Snyder is suspending Michigan’s Syrian refugee program until more stringent security measures are implemented.

Michigan has already accepted hundreds of refugees, but now that process has been stopped.

According to MLive.Com:

“Gov. Rick Snyder is putting his calls for the state to accept more Syrian refugees on hold in the wake of terrorist attacks in Paris linked to ISIS.

Some Syrian refugees have already arrived in Michigan. Gov. Rick Snyder has been supportive of accepting more refugees, and as of late September was in discussions with the federal government about it.

“Michigan is a welcoming state and we are proud of our rich history of immigration. But our first priority is protecting the safety of our residents,” Snyder said. “Given the terrible situation in Paris, I’ve directed that we put on hold our efforts to accept new refugees until the U.S. Department of Homeland Security completes a full review of security clearances and procedures.”

The article notes Snyder is one of the most pro-immigration Governors in the country.

“Snyder has described himself as the most pro-immigration governor in the country. He established the Michigan Office for New Americans in 2014 and has been a longtime advocate of EB-5 visas, which provide a path to citizenship for those who invest at least $1 million and create 10 jobs in the United States. ”

  1. Good ! Where is H.R. 3314, a bill prohibiting admission of refugees into the U.S. until Congress passes a joint resolution giving the Dept of Homeland Security authority to resume same. This bill also requires the Govt Accountability Office to report to Congress on refugees who received the following benefits: Medicare, Medicaid, Disability Ins.under Title II of the Social Security Act (the one the thieves stole $150 BILLION from Soc Sec Trust Fund about 2 weeks ago at 3 am), SNAP (food stamps), and Section 8 rental assistance for housing. ALL OUR STUFF FOR FREE !!
    Do you blame the refugees for coming here?

    • Before the attack on Paris, this governor was telling Michiganers who complained to go live somwhere else if they didn’t want more Muslims. Follow the money.

      • Looks like his eyes were opened… or…he learned there would be no more money from whatever source he expected to get it . Who knows……

  2. Now it’s time for the legislature to pass a bill outlawing Shariah law in this state and for Snyder to sign into law.

    • As Shariah law would violate the Constitution a law outlawing it would be redundant.

      …by the way, just passing bills is nothing but political theater unless they are signed into law.

  3. I don’t think ANY state should be able to decide to invite refugee’s in (on their own) It should be a vote of the people.Once here there is no guarantee of where they will go or stay…this will affect the entire US not just their state.

    • Brains? All he sees is that he’s going to lose his next election if he hadn’t changed his mind on his previous stance.

      • I seems to recall him telling residents of Michigan that if they did not like the Muslim immigration they could get out of the state.

  4. So like what are they going to do about the annoying ones already there and the implement of the sharia laws they allow in Mich?

  5. What about the innocent people fleeing Syria in hopes that they can keep their family alive? I’m all for proper background checks, etc., but if my country was under attack by terrorists, and I could not find a safe haven, I would hope that some other country would help my family to stay alive. Nobody WANTS to flee the place they call home. It’s tragic on all sides.

    • Okay, at least 75% of the ‘refugees’ are 18-45 year old men unaccompanied by women or children. Those aren’t families coming in; those are soldiers. Bring in real families with women and young children and put the fathers to work supporting them. If these men are so worried about their families, why did they leave them behind to deal with the terrorists alone? Why aren’t they defending their homelands from the radical extremists and protecting their families?

      • I’d like to see a reference to your stat of 75% are men alone. The families we have helped get settled her are just that: families. The men and women are working to support their families. You ask why the men don’t stay? Because staying could mean death. These men are getting death threats. Would you rather they stay to die? Then what happens with the family?

        • You ever hear of “Women and children first?” Do you actually think the families are safe once the men leave? Think again. They’re beheading women and children over there. Able bodied men don’t leave their wives and children behind. Period.

    • instead of running away, they should grow a sack, develop a little bit of pride and fight for their own homes, instead of running away for the promise of free stuff on the American tax payer.
      The whole idea is revolting. We have people in our own back yards starving or barely making it, and the idiots on Capitol Hill want to GIVE them a “better life”.
      Disgusting

  6. Refugees should go to Arab countries and not America or Europe. They should try Saudi Arabia, Dubai, UAE, Morocco, Egypt. All these Arab countries should accept their brethren. Why do we have to and risk getting slaughtered by these “refugees”

  7. YOU SHOULD WANT TO KNOW, WHY HILLARY AND OBAMA,

    THEY WANT ALL OUR
    GUNS. HITLER DID THIS AND HISTORY TELLS US WHAT HAPPENED.

    THEY ARE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY.

    TRIED TO BUY UP ALL
    AMMUNITION.

    THEY HAVE BUILT A LARGE GUARDED HOUSING COMPLEX IN EASTERN
    KENTUCKY.

    THE SHIPMENT OF PLANES AND TANKS TO EGYPT WAS STOPPED WHEN
    THE ARMY KICKED THE

    RACICALS OUT.

    OBAMA SAID HE WAS A CHRISTIAN AND SWITCHED TO SAYING HE WAS
    A MUSLIM ON TV.

    OBAMA CLAIMS TO BE BLACK WHEN HE IS 50% WHITE, 46% ARAB AND
    4% BALCK.

    THEY ARE WANTING TO LET 260 YOUNG MUSLIMS INTO THIS
    COUNTRY. COULD IT BE TO HAVE A ARMY OF
    MUSLIMS TO TRY AND INVADE US?

    THEY ARE LETTING 35 MUSLIM TRAINING CAMPS STAY UP AND
    RUNNING.

    THEY WILL NOT ALLOW OUR TROOPS CARRY GUNS AND AMMO.

    THEY ARE ALLOWING THE MAJOR TO LIVE THAT KILLED 18 OF OUR
    TROOPS IN TEXAS.

    THEY AND THE NEWS MEDIA ARE COVERING UP WHEN A MUSLIM KILLS
    ONE OF US.

    ASK THEM IS THEY ARE TRYING TO SET US UP FOR AN INVASION BY
    THE RADICALS. IF SO, GET READY FOR A
    BLOOD BATH HERE.

    FOLKS I AM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT AND I AM SURE THERE ARE A
    LOT MORE QUESTIONS, BUT PASS THESE ON TO YOUR FRIENDS.

  8. FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A CHRISTIAN AND A VETERAN OF THE
    KOREAN WAR, 52/53, BUT AFTER GATHERING ALL THE FACTS, I VOTE FOR THE MOST
    QUALIFIED PERSON, NOT A PARTY.

    QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK YOURSELF, REGARDLESS IF YOU ARE
    REPUBLICAN, DEMOCRAT, OR INDEPENDENT. IS
    THE THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS OBAMA IS TRYING TO BRING INTO THIS COUNTRY A START OF
    AN INVASION OF HIS MUSLIM COMRADES??

    ALL SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES HAD BETTER GET TOGETHER NOW
    AND BLOCK ALL MUSLIMS FROM ENTERING THIS COUNTRY AND SEND THE ONES BACK ALREADY
    LET IN. CITZENS CONTACT YOUR GOVERNMENT
    REPRESENTATIVES AND DEMAND THEY TAKE ACTION.

    WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN WHOLESALE KILLING STARTS, HOLLOW FOR
    OBAMA. YOU BETTER HAVE A GUN AND PLENTY OF AMMUNITION.

    WE HAD BETTER ARM EVER SOLDIER WE HAVE AND FORCE THEM TO
    CARRY THEM WITH PLENTY OF AMMUNITION.
    THIS SHOULD BE DONE IMMEDIATELY.

    TRUMP IS THE MOST QUALIFIED PERSON TO RUN THIS COUNTRY AT
    THIS TIME? IF ALLOWED TO HOLD OFFICE. I THINK WE SHOULD HAVE 6 TERM LIMITS FOR ALL
    POLITICIANS. GIVE TRUMP 12 YEARS, I DO
    NOT BELIEVE ANYONE CAN STRAIGHTEN THIS MESS OUT IN 6.

    IS OBAMA AND HILLIARY PLANNING AN INVASION WITH HIS MUSLIM
    COMRADES NEXT YEAR TO STAY IN POWER? I
    THINK SO.

    WHY HAS FEMA BUILT HUGE CAMP IN EAST KENTUCKY? THIS IS A FACT AND IT HAS ARMED GUARDS. COULD
    IT BE TO HOUSE A MUSLIM ARMY????? THIS HAS BEEN VERIFIED BY A PERSON LIVING 7
    MILES FROM THIS CAMP.

    ARE THERE 35 MUSLIM TRANING CAMPS HERE IN THE USA & ONE
    8 MILES OVER IN MEXICO? I THINK SO.

    WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMUNITION WITH
    OUR TAX MONEY? WAS IT TO SUPPLY AN
    INVADING ARMY? I THINK SO. WHERE IS THIS AMMUNITION NOWl?

    WHY IS OBAMA BRINGING IN UN TROOPS TO POLICE OUR MAJOR
    CITIY’S? COULD THIS BE PART OF A PLAN TO
    INVADE THIS COUNTRY? I THINK SO.

    WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF AN INVASION HAPPENS? WOULD THERE BE A NEW PRESIDENT? I DO NOT THINK SO.

    WHY IS OBAMA AND HILIARY TRYING TO TAKE OUR GUNS? COULD IT BE TO KEEP US FROM FIGHTING AN
    INVASION? I THINK SO.

    WOULD IT NOT BE BETTER IF EVERY PERSON HAD A GUN, WITH
    PLENTY OF AMMUNITION, IF WE WERE INVADED?
    I THINK SO.

    WHY IS OBAMA, KERRY AND HILLIARY. BRINGING IN 250 THOUSAND YOUNG MUSLIMS? COULD
    IT BE FOR AN IVASION? I THINK SO.

    WHY WAS A SHIPPMENT OF OVER 120 PLANES & OVER 100 TANKS
    TO EGYPT STOPPED AFTER THE ARMY KICKED THE RADICAL MULIMS OUT OF CONTROL LAST
    YEAR? WAS THE SHIPMENT TO HELP THE
    RADICALS? I THINK SO.

    WAKE UP AMERICA, YOU
    HAVE NOT SEEN ANYTHING YET.

    WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT GIVE 5 TOP TERRIOST FOR ONE
    TRAITOR? WAS OBAMA PROTECTING HIS
    COMRADES. I THINK SO.

    DID YOU BELIEVE OBAMA WHEN HE SAID ON NATION WIDE TV THAT HE
    WAS A MUSLIM? I BELIEVE THIS IS THE
    ONLY TRUTH HE HAS SAID.

    DO YOU BELIEVE OBAMA TO BE BLACK? HIS MOTHER WAS WHITE, HIS DAD A NORTH AFRICA
    ARAB.

    DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS GOVERNMENT HAS FORCED ISRAEL TO
    NUKE IRAN? I THINK SO. I ALSO BELIEVE A
    NORTHEN ARMY WILL COME DOWN AND ATTACK ISRAEL AND GOD, NOT ISRAEL WILL DESTROY
    3/4TH OF THAT ARMY IN THE VALLEY THERE.

    WHY HAS BLACK
    AMERICA TURNED AGAINST THE PARTY THAT FREED THE SLAVES.

    LINCOLN WAS A
    REPUBLICAN, HE AND THOUSANDS OF WHITES DIED TO FREE THE SLAVES.

    DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THE DEMOCRATS STARTED THE KKK. I KNOW SO.

    WHAT IS THE TRUE REASON RUSSIA IS GATHERING AN ARMY THERE,
    COULD IT BE TO TRY AND STOP ISRAEL. I
    THINK SO.

    WHY ARE OUR TROOPS NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE GUNS AND
    AMMUNITION? COULD IT BE TO KEEP THEM
    FROM STOPPING AN INVASION? I THINK SO.

    I COULD TAKE 100
    ARMED MUSLIMS AND TAKE OVER ANY UNARMED MILITARY BASE, IF YOU WAS PREPAIRED TO
    KILL EVERY ONE ON THAT BASE AS MUSLIMS DO.
    IF SO, WHAT COULD YOU DO WITH 260 THOUSAND OR MORE.

    ANALYZE THESE QUESTIONS AND MAKE UP YOUR MIND ON WHAT WE
    NEED TO DO TO PROTECT OUR COUNTRY AND PREVENT A UNBELIVABLE BLOOD BATH IF ALL
    OF THE ABOVE IS RIGHT.

    EMAIL
    THIS TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS, DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICAN OR INDEPENDENTS
