The current refugee crisis begs for urgent scrutiny. The feasibility of terrorist manoeuvring entry amongst them is very real.
On Feb. 18 this year, various internet reports and The Daily Mail News recorded that ISIS threatened to flood Europe with 500,000 migrants as a “psychological weapon” against Europe.
No one paid much attention at that time.
Studying recent reports there seem to be two types of migrants streaming in at an unbelievable pace: those who have lost all they had, who were persecuted, tortured and abused, and the economic refugees who escape with all their money for their own financial reasons.
The ISIS statements they would flood Europe with “radicalized “refugees” truly hits a raw nerve. When you see the many healthy-appearing assertive young men claiming refugee status you start to wonder are all of them true refugees? Why did these young men not stay in their homeland to try help free their country from the ISIS regime, as they should?
We need to do all we can to help the first type of refugees, the sooner the better. The ones fleeing for economic reasons only do need a good second look.
The cautious approach of our federal government to screen refugees is commendable indeed.
Let’s hope it will stay that way.
