Obama to Grant Asylum to 500,000 (Mostly Muslim) Syrian Refugees
« on: November 06, 2013, 07:37:56 PM »
NationalReport>Washington, DC–Several high ranking Democratic officials were spotted late this evening leaving the famed Capitol Hill watering hole Tortilla Coast.  On the menu, discussions of President Obama’s decision to grant political asylum to 500,000 (mostly Muslim) Syrian refugees.  According to sources present at the meeting, the group gathered to discuss the details of the decision and to iron out talking points prior to the public announcement.

Following a report recently released from Amnesty International that Jordan had forcibly removed thousands of refugees to their home country, the Obama administration has decided to take action.  “Amnesty is extremely concerned about this trend. While Jordan has made tremendous efforts to accommodate half a million refugees, and is facing pressures as a result, these do not justify such violations of international law,” says Amnesty’s Neil Sammonds, who worked on the report.

The UN has also released a report stating that Syrians in Jordan now account for 10 percent of the country’s total population and Jordan’s economy simply cannot support such a large influx of immigrants.  Approximately 2 million Syrian refugees have fled to neighboring countries in the region including Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Lebanon.   According to the report, 6 million Syrian’s are in desperate need of help and 4 million have been displaced due to the ongoing Syrian civil war.

The Syrian civil war broke out on March 15, 2011 and nationwide demonstrations grew large by April 2011 as part of the protest movement known as the Arab Spring.  The protesters demanded the immediate resignation of President Bahar al-Assad, whose family has been in power since 1971.

While the meeting was held behind closed doors in the basement, several members of the party spoke with National Report and confirmed that Obama plans on announcing his intent to grant these refugees asylum within days.  The refugees will be granted immediate citizenship status under the guise of political asylum due to intense fighting that has killed 120,000+ citizens.  Camps are being setup in rural areas across the country to temporarily house the refugees complete with FEMA housing, temporary Mosques and schools.

Something tells me that "National Report" is about as reliable as World Nut Daily or Debka.

The last paragraph doesn't pass the smell test.  Being granted asylum does not grant someone citizenship and it never has.

Fox News was reporting it today. Is that unreliable, too?

I spent the last 1/2 hour looking for another source for this story.  This is the only one reporting it, or it links back to this one as the source.

The last news reports about Obama letting in any refugees was back in the summer.

It was the same figure then, too. Just a rumor at the time, nothing official. Believe me, if there were any real substance in it, the people in the camp we were based in would know all about it and be queuing up. The admins of the camp would certainly know about it.

I'll do some digging later in the day - the line about the FEMA camps doesn't sit easily with me. Heard that line way too many times to trust an article that uses it without providing proof.

Never heard of this website and just glancing down their front page does not fill me with confidence that they know what they are talking about.

Need some independent confirmation by a reputable source...
