House Passes Stricter Syrian Refugee Rules With Majority Obama Can’t Veto: Here’s Ben Carson’s Response

2016 GOP Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson says he’s glad to see the U.S. House pass legislation to implement stricter rules for Syrian refugees.

President Obama says he will veto the bill, but the House has enough votes to override Obama. The bill’s prospects in the Senate not as favorable.

According to Politico:

“The House passed a bill Thursday that would block Syrian and Iraqi refugees from entering the country unless they pass strict background checks — setting up a collision with President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats.

The bill has unanimous support from Republicans, who were joined by 47 Democrats — even after the Obama administration made a last-minute pitch to persuade wavering House Democrats to oppose the GOP-written bill. And with 289 “yes” votes, Republicans also won a veto-proof majority for the measure.

The bipartisan support was a rebuke of President Barack Obama by House Democrats who felt that the administration failed to make a compelling case as to why they should vote against the Republican-authored bill when it was bad politics to do so.”

Carson approves of the House’s actions.

“The Paris terrorist attacks have demonstrated that terrorists will pose as refugees to enter our land,” Carson said in a statement. “We must do our utmost to thwart the terrorists’ ambitions. The security of the American people, not politics, should be our number one priority. The bipartisan vote in the House today is a very good step in the right direction.”

Carson Applauds the House for Passing
New Screening Measures for Syrian Refugees

Alexandria, Va. – November 19, 2015 – Today, Dr. Ben Carson, retired neurosurgeon and GOP presidential candidate, applauded the U.S. House of Representatives for approving stricter screening requirements for refugees from Syria seeking to settle in the United States.

“The Paris terrorist attacks have demonstrated that terrorists will pose as refugees to enter our land,” said Dr. Carson. “We must do our utmost to thwart the terrorists’ ambitions.”

“The security of the American people, not politics, should be our number one priority,” added Dr. Carson. “The bipartisan vote in the House today is a very good step in the right direction.

In September, President Barack Obama pledged that the U.S. would accept an additional 45,000 new refugees, mostly from Syria, in 2016-2017. Earlier this week, Dr. Carson sent letters to congressional leaders urging them to terminate all public funding for any ongoing federal programs that seek to resettle refugees or migrants from Syria into the United States.

  1. I thank those 47 Democrats and the Republican Members of the house for passing this more restrictive bill that calls for a thorough investigation of Syrian and Iraqi refugees.
    I pray that the Democrats in the Senate will be as willing to put ‘party’ aside and vote responsibly for the protection of Americans.. Please vote American on this !!!

  2. READ ALL OF THIS AND MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND REGARDING

    WHAT THIS ADMISTRATION IS DOING.

    I AM 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. ARE THE

    THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS OBAMA IS TRYING TO BRING INTO

    THIS COUNTRY A START OF AN INVASION OF HIS MUSLIM

    COMRADES????? OBAMA HAS SAID HE WAS A MUSLIM.

    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. IF ONE AMERICAN DIE FROM AN INVASION

    OF MUSLIMS, THE PEOPLE THAT LET THEM IN SHOULD BE

    ROUNDED UP AND PROSCUTED AS ASSITING KILLERS.

    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 YEAR 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 ?????

    WHY HAS FEMA BUILT HUGE CAMP IN EAST KENTUCKY? THIS

    IS A FACT AND IT HAS ARMED GUARDS. ACCORDING TO A

    LADY LIVING 7 MILES FROM THIS CAMP. COULD IT BE TO HOUSE

    A MUSLIM ARMY????? .

    ARE THERE 35 MUSLIM TRANING CAMPS HERE IN THE USA
    AND ONE 8 MILES OVER IN MEXICO?

    WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT TRY AND BUY UP ALL

    AMMUNITION WITH OUR TAX MONEY? WAS IT TO SUPPLY

    AN INVADING ARMY? WHERE IS THIS AMMUNITION AT TODAY?

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

    WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF AN INVASION HAPPENS?

    WOULD THERE BE A NEWPRESIDENT?

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

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

    WHY IS OBAMA, KERRY AND HILLIARY. BRINGING IN 260 THOUSAND YOUNG
    MUSLIMS? COULD IT BE FOR AN IVASION?

    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?

    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.

    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 AFRICAN 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.

    WHAT IS THE TRUE REASON RUSSIA IS GATHERING AN ARMY

    THERE, COULD IT BE TO TRY AND STOP ISRAEL.

    WHY ARE OUR TROOPS NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE GUNS AND

    AMMUNITION? COULD IT BE TO KEEP THEM FROM STOPPING

    AN INVASION?

    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 ANSWERS

    ABOVE IS YES.

    I DO NOT KNOW HOW LONG I WILL BE ABLE TO SEND THIS OUT,

    OUR GOVERNMENT MAY DECIDE TO STOP ME.

    SO MAIL THIS TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS, DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICAN

    OR INDEPENDENTS.

    • We should of Impeached Obama after the “Fast & Furious” erosion of the truth regarding our Border Agent Brian Terry murder . The Muslims do not respect any other religion but their own, so that is in violation of our Religious Freedom, Dearborn, Michigan is a good example of what happens when they take control .

    • (Your caps lock key is on.)

      Did you notice prez o. wears a finger ring that has on it “allah is great” in Arabic? He removes it during the Ramadan month (muslims = no jewelry during Raadan.)

  3. Right on Dr. Carson. If you have a bowl of grapes, and you know that some are poisoned and will kill you if you eat just one, do you dare eat any of the grapes in the bowl?
