Guess Who Obama and Kerry want to Outsource Refugee Screening to?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We’ve written in the past at RedState on how little the Obama administration cares about screening refugees trying to come into America, but we’ve only dealt with the wave of Middle Eastern refugees thus far. Now, we know–as if we didn’t before–that this extends to other refugees as well. News broke yesterday that Barack Obama and John Kerry are planning to outsource Central American refugee screening to the United Nations. From the AP:

The office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees will now conduct initial screenings to see whether migrants from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala may qualify as refugees eligible to come to the United States legally.

“I am pleased to announce plans to expand the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program to help vulnerable families and individuals from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, and offer them a safe and legal alternative to the dangerous journey many are currently tempted to begin, making them easy prey for human smugglers who have no interest but their own profits,” Kerry said in a speech at the National Defense University.

Later Wednesday President Barack Obama authorized the State Department to access up to $70 million from the U.S. Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund “for the purpose for meeting unexpected urgent refugee and migration needs related to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program.”

I’m a softie on the issue of admitting refugees in general, but for obvious reasons, this does not sit well with me. The United States should be screening the people who want to enter this country, not the United Nations. There is zero indication from recent history that the UN will seriously be looking out for our interests. Their sheer incompetence at managing things is legendary, and let’s not forget their preoccupation with hating the United States when there are far more significant targets to focus on in the world.

What’s particularly ironic here is that John Kerry’s State Department is supposed to be the one overseeing the screening and admission of refugees into the United States. Let’s rewind to 2004 for a moment. In the Republican National Convention that year, Zell Miller memorably said in his keynote address about John Kerry wanting UN approval before using military force:

John Kerry, who says he doesn’t like outsourcing, wants to outsource our national security.

That’s the most dangerous outsourcing of all. This politician wants to be leader of the free world.

This move by the United States doesn’t involve using military force, but Zell Miller was prophetic. He was just a few years off. Kerry might not be President, but he’s still going along with the Obama administration’s plan. The Left can bemoan outsourcing all they want, but when it comes down to it, they are totally fine with allowing other countries to run our national security policy.

This is exactly the sort of thing we should be hounding Congress about. History shows that the United Nations is not going to look out for our country’s best interests, and even if they were, they are still far too incompetent to manage such a critical part of our national security. Rather than having them screen our potential refugees, we should be defunding them.
