Contrary to claims made by President Barack Obama that all Syrian refugees will be thoroughly vetted, a Syrian community leader — someone who should know — said that not only have militants entered our borders posing as civil war refugees, but he expects more to come.
“I believe the terrorists from Syria have been coming into the United States, not only in the past few years, but way before that,” Aarafat “Ralph” Succar of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, home of the city’s largest enclave of Syrian immigrants, told the New York Post. “I think they’re already at work.”
Because Syrian government is rife with corruption, obtaining “official” identification is simple, Succar told the Post.
“You can go to the Syrian government today and say to them, ‘I need a piece of paper that says I’m Tony Caterpillar.’ And they give it to you,” he said.
“These are not forged documents. These are written out by a government employee who needs money, whose family has no food.”
Succar, 57, immigrated to the United States when he was 10 and now serves as a member of the Bay Ridge Community Council. He said that one has to keep in mind that countries such as Syria don’t have information networks like those found in the United States.
“Third World countries, particularly places like Syria, do not have the network of information the United States has,” he told the Post.
“In Syria, there’s no such thing. So when they tell you that [the refugees] are vetted, are you out of your mind?” he said.
Meanwhile, it was reported today that eight Syrian nationals were caught trying to sneak through the Texas-Mexican border.
In addition, Honduras caught five Syrian nationals with forged pasports attempting to make the trek north from there to the United States.
