State Department spokesman John Kirby just completely validated Donald Trump, Jr.’s “skittle post” that outraged liberals this week.
In an interview on Fox and Friends, Kirby admitted that ISIS terrorists are posing as refugees in order to get into the United States.
Brian asked Kirby, “Why should people feel good about bringing in refugees – we have big hearts, but we also don’t want to be blown up in a subway.”
Kirby said, the more than 10,000 Syrian refugees brought into the country have all been “extremely and very stridently vetted.” Although he admitted, “There’s certainly not the same line of information you have on individuals there that you have here…” but he assured that they’re only bringing in the “most vulnerable individuals” and 8 out of 10 are women and children.
“I wouldn’t debate the fact that there’s the potential for ISIS terrorists to try to insert themselves, and we see that in some of the refugee camps in Jordan and in Turkey, where they try to insert themselves into the population,” Kirby said.
He admitted that the vetting process is not perfect, but it’s “tough” and should be enough to keep terrorists out. “Is it perfect? Can it be perfect? Can it be foolproof? Well, probably not, no.”
“The vetting process, while not perfect, is a very, very stringent, and it can take almost up to two years for a single refugee to make it into the country,” he said.
“But all it takes is one,” said host Ainsley Earhardt.
He didn’t want to talk about the current investigation of the New York bomber at all. But he said out of the millions of refugees admitted to the U.S., only a fraction of 1% were sent out of the country because of terrorist or criminal activity.
He bragged that the president has upped the number of refugees to over 100,000 in 2017.
