Obama Has ‘Alternative Paths’ To Bring Unlimited Number of Refugees To U.S.


The 10,000 Syrian refugees could just be the beginning, a new report warns – Obama will be using alternative legal channels as detours to bring an unlimited number of refugees into the U.S.

Obama is rushing to achieve his goal of 10,000 Syrian refugees before a September 20 UN Summit on Global Refugee Crisis in New York.  A report by Nayla Rush, a senior researcher at the Center for Immigration Studies, says Obama is expected to discuss three main topics at the UN Summit:  More money, and “more resettlement and other legal channels for admissions.”

The alternative legal pathways include student visas, academic scholarships, medical admissions, and employment contracts to “broader family reunification programs”.   Nash says these alternative channels are not new – what is new is the Obama administration’s INTENT TO PROMOTE these “private sponsorships” as a way to increase the number of refugees being resettled in the U.S.   The refugee resettlement program has limits and must be approved by congress, but these alternative sponsorship channels have NO LIMITS and lack any formal tracking of the people once they arrive.

Family Reunification: A Syrian refugee must apply for a green card one year after entry to the U.S. , and can obtain citizenship after 5 years in the U.S.    As a greencard holder, they can sponsor a spouse and unmarried children under 21 to come to the U.S.    As a CITIZEN, they can petition to bring their entire family to the U.S…. spouse, children, parents, brothers and sisters.  This program will expedite the visa applications of family members of Syrians already in the U.S.

Education:   Student visa and scholarships are already being delivered to Syrian refugees, through the “Institute of Internal Education,” the report says.  IIE President Allan Goodman spoke of it in March, “We estimate that for Syrians alone today, there are over 100,000 university-qualified students in refugee camps or urban environments, and at least as many displaced inside Syria. There are also thousands of teachers…”     In 2015, their total revenue was $840 million, about 52 percent donated from foreign governments and international organizations, and 36 percent from the U.S. government.   Once here, students can apply for asylum.  Then go through the “family reunification” channels to bring the rest of their family.

One minor setback – most refugees don’t have their transcripts, exam results, or diplomas, and have no way to verify their prior level of education, if any.  They also don’t have birth certificates or proof of citizenship from their home country.   No problem – the U.S. is already in talks with the U.N. to “remove administrative barriers and simplify processes to facilitate and expedite the admission of Syrian refugees.”
