680,000 Green Cards to Muslims and Counting

A.J. Cameron forwards this:

From Judicial Watch.


Meanwhile, with Islamic terrorism on the rise, the Obama administration has issued around 680,000 green cards to foreigners from Muslim countries over a five-year period, according to data published by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The stats show that the U.S. government admits more than double the number of immigrants from Muslim nations than from the European Union:

This disturbing information was circulated by the Senate Judiciary Committee's subcommittee on Immigration ... a committee announcement reminds us "a green card entitles recipients to access federal benefits, lifetime residency, work authorization, and a direct route to becoming a U.S. citizen." Some of the recipients are admitted to the U.S. as refugees so they immediately qualify for federal welfare benefits like food stamps and Medicaid.

The DHS stats include a breakdown of the countries where the migrants came from. Pakistan and Iraq sent over the most with 83,000 apiece and Bangladesh had 75,000. Seventy-three thousand came from Iran, 45,000 from Egypt, 31,000 from Somalia, 24,000 from Uzbekistan, Turkey and Morocco had 22,000 each, Jordan and Albania 20,000 each and Lebanon and Yemen each had 16,000. Rounding out the five-digit club is Indonesia (15,000), Syria (14,000), Sudan (13,000), Afghanistan (11,000) and Sierra Leone (10,000). The rest, including Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Kosovo and Libya, only sent over a few thousand during the five-year period covered by the DHS data. By contrast, only 65,000 green cards were granted to migrants from the European Union country (United Kingdom) with the highest number during this period. The Senate committee reveals that DHS has not yet published statistics covering fiscal year 2014 and fiscal year 2015 so we'll be on the lookout for that.

I personally would prefer that my tax dollars be used to benefit U.S. citizens first! It is one thing to welcome immigrants. It is clearly another to provide for their food, clothing, shelter, medical care, education, child care, and transportation.

FYI--In 2015 There were 20 appropriations related votes in the House. Yoder voted in favor of 17 of them. https://www.congress.gov/resources/display/content/Appropriations+for+Fiscal+Year+2015
For all of his rhetoric about reducing spending and balancing the budget he VOTES to spend more and more money every year on such things as the above!

He plans to be a career politician so the only way to get him to stop spending more and more of our tax dollars (and the subsequent necessity, increasing our taxes) is to pressure him to see the light and stop this nonsense!!! The question you need to ask yourself is what do you get free from the government? Or are you one of us who pays (or did pay before retiring) our fair share and the share of others who do get free benefits?
