Unfettered refugees no better than gun-free France

We love refugees protestA gun-rights advocate who was lamenting France's restrictive gun laws earlier this week is now lamenting liberal immigration laws in the United States.

"We should not allow our politicians to import Muslim murderers," Larry Pratt says of the unfettered flow of Syrian refugees into the U.S.

Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, told OneNewsNow for a Nov. 16 story that the Muslim terrorists used fully automatic AK-47s when they gunned down French citizens inside a music hall in Paris last week.

The suspected "mastermind" of the attack was Abdelhamid Abaaoud (pictured below), a Belgian national who had joined ISIS in Syria. 

Pratt says he also worries about similar terrorists hiding among the flow of Syrians coming into the United States with little or no paperwork to vet them.

Pratt, Larry (GOA)"These Syrians come from areas where they don't have paperwork. They cannot be vetted," Pratt complains, though the United Nations claims it can adequately investigate people requesting asylum to the United States. 

After the Paris attacks, The Daily Caller noted this week that the FBI admitted two years ago that the U.S. may have allowed terrorists into the country who claimed refugee status. That admittance came after two supposed refugees, who lived in Kentucky, later admitted they had attacked U.S. military personnel in Iraq. One of the terrorists was granted asylum even though he had been arrested in Iraq.

One suicide bomber who blew himself up outside the French national soccer stadium in Paris had a Syrian passport, and prosecutors say his fingerprints match those of someone who passed through Greece in October.

In a recent story about Muslims pouring into Europe, OneNewsNow reported that German authorities found fake Syrian passports on a suspected ISIS terrorist.

Abdelhamid Abaaoud (Paris attack mastermind)President Obama said in September that he wants the U.S. to take in 10,000 Syrian refugees in 2016, The New York Times reported in September.

But that was before the well-coordinated Paris attacks, planned by a terrorist based in Syria, killed more than 120 people.

After the Paris attacks, more than 30 U.S. governors - most of them Republicans - are demanding the State Department keep Syrians from their state borders. But their ability to do so is doubtful according to both liberal and conservative sources. 

Meanwhile, Rep. Paul Ryan, the new House speaker, is threatening to pull funding from the refugee program.

Pratt says the United Nations should send Syrian refugees to Saudi Arabia if they're Sunni or to Yemen if they're Shia.

"But for goodness sakes," says Pratt, "to send them here ought to be an impeachable offense."
