25,000 Iraqi refugees Coming Too America ?

The United States could take in up to 25,000 Iraqi refugees this year -- more than three times the number it previously agreed to admit -- in an effort to provide some relief to the crisis affecting several Arab countries, the State Department said yesterday.

The department also said it plans to allow Iraqis and Afghans working for the U.S. government in their respective countries to immigrate to the United States after only three years of service instead of the current 15 required by law.

"It's fair to say that, if we get the referrals [from the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees], we could resettle up to 25,000 Iraqi refugees within the president's determination this year," said Ellen Sauerbrey, assistant secretary of state for population, refugees and migration.

    It really makes since when you look at things from a conspiaracy theory. If there wasn't a plan to dillute the American culture with millions of non Americans from all over the world so as to comfortably merge into the New World order or at least the North American Union. Then those in charge are bafoons and idiots. What they will have created will have the same end result. I pray for a revolution, to bring back what the founders had intended and overthrow the Socialists in charge.
    However you look at it, it is a lose lose.

    Sincerly, Dennis
