BREAKING: REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR Changes Mind On Populating MI With Syrian Refugees: Cites Paris Terror Attack As Reason

We’ll believe it when we see it. There’s some serious money to be made in the transfer of Muslims to America via the US State Department. With Syrian investors gearing up to build refugee centers in the center of hell-hole cities like Pontiac and Detroit,  and Snyder’s past ties to CAIR in Michigan, there has to be more to this story…

In July, 2011, Governor Rick Snyder spoke at the conference of Immigration and Michigan’s Economic Future. He said in addition to cultural diversity, immigrants bring jobs to America. “Make no mistake about it, they are job creators, and we should be embracing that,” he added.

On March 23, 2011, Snyder hosted the CAIR Action Network and the Council of Islamic Organizations of Michigan, both openly pro-HAMAS/Hezbollah, kick off Michigan Muslim Capitol Day. In his speech to these extremists and open Islamic terrorism supporters, Snyder called for more foreign immigration to Michigan as the way to solve the state’s economic woes.

LANSING — Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder says he is suspending efforts to bring Syrian refugees to Michigan in light of the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday.

“Given the terrible situation in Paris, I’ve directed that we put on hold our efforts to accept new refugees until the U.S. Department of Homeland Security completes a full review of security clearances and procedures,” Snyder said in a statement released by his office on Sunday.

“Michigan is a welcoming state and we are proud of our rich history of immigration,” the statement said. “But our first priority is protecting the safety of our residents.”

State Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Midland, issued a statement Saturday night calling on Snyder to “reverse his call to relocate Syrian refugees in the state.”

“We should not rush to offer an open door to the high-risk importation of individuals from a known hotbed of Islamic extremism,” Glenn said, disputing assertions that the refugees can be safely vetted.

Snyder decided to halt the refugee program on Saturday, after consultation with legislative leaders, prior to Glenn’s statement, spokesman Dave Murray said.

It’s true that earlier efforts to bring Syrian refugees to Michigan “were contingent on proper security vetting, which is an extensive process that takes up to a year or more,” Murray said.

However, “in light of the terrible situation in Paris, Gov. Snyder has asked that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security complete a full review of those security procedures and clearances.”

Asked if Syrian refugees who have been through the current vetting process and want to settle in Michigan should be prevented from doing so, Murray said he’s not aware of any refugees who fit those criteria, but would check. Via: Detroit Free Press
