Obama’s New Asylum Decree Favors Muslims Over Christians

Obama’s New Asylum Decree Favors Muslims Over Christians Egyptian Coptic Christians protest a spate of recent attacks on Christians and churches in Cairo. AP View Enlarged Image Immigration: As President Obama offers asylum to “minor” terrorists providing “limited” material support to terrorism, he’s slamming shut the door on thousands of Christians fleeing terrorism in Muslim lands like Egypt. In another end-run around Congress, President Obama has unilaterally eased immigration requirements for foreigners linked to terrorism. He ordered the State Department and Homeland Security to ignore a post-9/11 law barring entry to those giving political or charitable aid to Hamas and other known terrorist groups.

A dozen years after the horrific attacks on our nation by foreign Islamic terrorists, the Obama administration has decided a little support to foreign Islamic terrorists is OK. Treasonous as it sounds, the president is following through on a little-noticed overture he made to Muslims in his Cairo speech of 2009, when he suggested he’d relax enforcement of material support laws involving “zakat,” or Islamic charitable giving. He basically apologized for the Bush administration’s locking up the founders of the largest Muslim charity in America for sending millions to “zakat committees” linked to Hamas. Of course, his move weakens, yet again, America’s security. By exempting five kinds of limited material support for terrorism, Obama instantly purges more than 4,000 suspects from the U.S. terror watch list and opens our borders up to both them and their families. Not to worry, Homeland Security says, it’ll run additional security checks before letting them in. Oh? Like the checks run on the Tsarnaev family, who also got into the country on asylum claims? Those security checks? Forgive the survivors and the families of those who died in the Boston bombings if they’re not reassured.
