About 1,300 Syrian refugees have already been settled in the Unites States since September 2015. President Obama’s goal is to settle 10,000 refugees by the end of this summer. His friends at the State Department are vowing to help by accelerating the amount of refugees brought into the United States each month.
The State Department claims a lack of human resources caused it to fall behind schedule in meeting Obama’s goal. The reason they provide is a shortage of personnel available to interview refugees. Nevertheless, the State Department will begin to take in 1,500 refugees per month to ensure they meet President Obama’s goal. Thus, putting Americans at risk.
According to The Hill, the State Department is now doing a “surge operation” in Amman, Jordan, that is designed to process the rest of the Syrian refugees in as little as three months. By September 2016, President Obama’s goal will be met.
Critics argue that speeding up the process will make it easier for terrorists to go undetected.
