It seems like we just reported that the numbers of Syrian refugees that came into the United States in the month of May was the highest on record. Almost 500 this month, but then this week happened.
225 Syrian refugees were allowed to enter the US on Monday alone. That is more than the total of January and February and half of the record-breaking month in one day. 80 were allowed in on Tuesday.
May’s total now is close to 800 and could be over 1,000 before it is all said and done.
The push is to hit the 10,000 mark that Obama promised the world after the Paris attacks.
The total is around 2,500 so we have a ways to go, but if we keep having weeks like we are having now, we could reach the 10,000 mark in September and not by 2017.
What is the big rush Mr. President?
The administration assures us that all safeguards are in place and that the increase in numbers is because the system to run checks on them is so much more efficient.
If that is true and the system is that much more efficient that it can radically change the wait times almost over night, then the designer of that system needs to go work for the TSA. They need all the help they can get!
Are we allowing the refugees in too fast to check them? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
