Ahmed — a Sunni Muslim who asked that his full name not be used to protect his remaining relatives in Syria — said he fled to Jordan in 2012 after militiamen aligned with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad wrongfully accused him of attacking them.
“I don’t have any positive hope for Syria, even if Bashar Al-Assad will go,” said Ahmed, 30, a bearded man who looks older than his age. “There are so many parties fighting and everything is destroyed.”
More than 162,000 people have been killed in the Syrian conflict so far, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, based in England. Millions of others have been displaced by the war, a United Nations report shows.
The International Rescue Committee has been calling on the federal government to welcome 12,000 Syrian refugees this year, plus 3,000 more next year. Only about 100 had been resettled in the U.S. as of February. But the Obama administration is expecting to begin receiving thousands of referrals from the United Nations this year to resettle Syrians in the U.S. Most are expected to begin arriving during the next two years.
The federal government provides refugees with funding that partially covers the cost of rent, furniture, food and clothing. Private contributions supplement that funding. Refugees may work in the U.S. And they are required to apply for permanent residency after a year and are eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship after five years.
Tens of thousands to come, none will ever leave. All funded by U.S. taxpayers. Mass infiltration is occurring from all angles.
