Only 37 Republicans back plan to eliminate funding for ‘refugees’ from terrorist hotbeds

Only 37 Republican congressmen have signed on to a Texas lawmaker’s effort to eliminate funding for all refugees being sent to the U.S. from terrorist hotbeds like Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia.

U.S. Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, told WND Tuesday the attacks in Minnesota, New York and New Jersey over the weekend, combined with earlier attacks by Muslim immigrants or sons of immigrants on Orlando, San Bernardino and Chattanooga, have created a “clear and present danger” that Congress must address. Especially since the sitting president, Barack Obama, refuses not only to stem the flow of Muslim refugees but has been on a crusade to increase that flow before he leaves office in January.

Yet, when he tried last week to muster support for legislation that would do just that, Babin found very little support among his own Republican colleagues in Congress.

Refugees bound for the U.S. are selected by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, then screened by federal agents for ties to formal terrorist organizations like ISIS or al-Qaida, but without any questions about their loyalty to Shariah law.

That’s why Babin invited all 247 Republicans in the House to sign a letter calling for language to be inserted into an upcoming budget resolution that would cut funding for U.N. refugees coming to America from countries with active jihadist movements.

Babin could find only 36 congressmen who would sign his letter, which he sent on Sept. 15 to Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who are negotiating the so-called “continuing resolution” to fund the government for another three months.

Read Babin’s letter to Speaker Ryan asking for funding to be cut for refugee arrivals from terrorist countries.

“It may be the latter part of the week before we reach a vote on the resolution. I don’t know the time table. I just know this is our only chance to get included things that are such a crisis for our country and especially this refugee program,” Babin told WND.

The terrorist attacks on Minnesota, New York and New Jersey over the weekend make the issue even more critical, he said.

“My letter would stop the intake from the Middle East and North Africa and eliminate funding to bring those in,” he said.

Babin isn’t the only one getting worried about the rising number of refugees coming terror hot spots.

NumbersUSA, one of the largest immigration watchdog groups, sent out an email alert Tuesday calling for a moratorium on all resettlements from these danger zones.

As Babin was discussing his plan with WND to keep radical Islamists out of the U.S., President Obama spoke before the United Nations global refugee summit in New York, trying to convince the West to accept more refugees fleeing wars in the Middle East. He called on leaders not to give up on “global integration” and turn to isolationist policies.

Even among the members of the House Freedom Caucus, whose roster includes the most conservative members of the Republican majority, only 18 of the 41 caucus members signed on to the Babin plan to cut funding.

“At least these people should have been on our side,” said refugee watchdog Ann Corcoran, who blogs at “It’s maddening, unless they are getting some kind of money, from the Chamber of Commerce or somebody.”

Freedom Caucus members who have not signed Babin’s letter are as follows:

  • Jim Jordan of Ohio, Chair
  • Justin Amash of Michigan
  • Rod Blum of Iowa
  • Ken Buck of Colorado
  • Curt Clawson of Florida
  • Ron DeSantis of Florida
  • John Fleming of Louisiana
  • Trent Franks of Arizona
  • Scott Garrett of New Jersey
  • Paul Gosar of Arizona
  • Morgan Griffith of Virginia
  • Raúl Labrador of Idaho
  • Alex Mooney of West Virginia
  • Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina
  • Gary Palmer of Alabama
  • Steve Pearce of New Mexico
  • Scott Perry of Pennsylvania
  • Ted Poe of Texas
  • Bill Posey of Florida
  • Keith Rothfus of Pennsylvania
  • Mark Sanford of South Carolina
  • David Schweikert of Arizona
  • Marlin Stutzman of Indiana

The 17 Freedom Caucus members who have joined with Babin, also a caucus member, to sign the letter to Ryan are as follows: Dave Brat of Virginia, Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Warren Davidson of Ohio, Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee, Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Andy Harris of Maryland, Jody Hice of Georgia, Walter Jones of North Carolina, Steve King of Iowa, Barry Loudermilk of Georgia, Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Mark Meadows of North Carolina, Matt Salmon of Arizona, Randy Weber of Texas and Ted Yoho of Florida.

  1. Above is a list of traitors. Remember their names come November.

  2. Tell us NATIVES how to help. obama is far worse than woodrow wilson the racist.

  3. Most Republicans are no better then Democrats. Thats why Trump is so popular. The GOP losers caved in to ever one of Obamas demands and as your reporting tonight, another of Obamas demands is being caved on. Our best hope is to vote Trump.

  4. We will know who is part of the Global Elite Agenda by their votes.
    The Refugee Resettlement Industry is very lucrative. Globalism demands the cheapest low wage immigrant labor from any source…by any means necessary. Identify those in favor & follow the money. This is a massive cost shifting & benefits the corporate, industry bottom line. Everyone in support of Muslim Resettlement has a vested interest. They have no interest in protecting American jobs or our safety & security. Politicians are facilitating the demands of Globalist to insource cheap “Human Capitol”. Low wage Refugee immigrant labor enriches portfolios of the wealthy Elite esatablishment at tax payer expense. Repay all of them in November 2016.

    • You are very right. Ask where the clintons and obamas got their money. Ask who pays the speaking fees and expenses before the price per plate numbers.

  5. […] Even in the U.S., Only 37 Republicans back plan to eliminate funding for ‘refugees’ from hotbeds of Islamic terror… […]

  6. I don’t know how you all read this, but, I interpret a failure to support legislation that is designed to protect the general welfare and safety of American citizens as being indicative of the party failing to act on such legislation assuming the status of a domestic enemy of the US Constitution and the people of the United States of America. But, we must wait until the Bill comes to a floor vote, if such will occur, to determine who has truly failed us. If it does not make it to the floor for a vote, we will be left only with the knowledge that GOP leadership has failed us again , by joining the ranks of those who support the Obama agenda to fundamentally transform America into an Islamic caliphate.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
