Yesterday we told you about the dueling rallies in Lancaster, PA between those who want to put the needs of Americans first and those who welcome the resettlement of sharia-loving Muslim and other impoverished third-world refugees to your small cities and towns.
Republican ‘leaders’ like Tom Ridge are to blame for how we got to this place. I’ll bet as governor he never once looked into the administration of the refugee resettlement program in his state. And, surely, as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, the refugee screening issue was not discussed or we wouldn’t be in this fix now.
Although Ridge now says we can’t screen refugees from Syria, here, two years ago he signed a letter with Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan asking the GOP to get behind bringing in MORE refugees from Muslim countries. They didn’t specifically say Muslim countries, but since two of the largest groups entering—Iraqis and Somalis—are Muslims, by asking for more it goes without saying they supported the influx of that group.
Open borders Republicans!
Here is what I said about the 2014 letter and the list of those in the Republican ruling class that are not to be trusted because they used such poor judgement in signing this letter—a letter that was only picked up by Human Rights First!
The statement is signed by former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez; former Florida Governor Jeb Bush; former Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Tom Ridge; Kansas Governor Sam Brownback; former Senator Mel Martinez; Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform; Suhail A. Khan, chairman of the Conservative Inclusion Coalition; Jim Ziglar, former Commissioner of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS); Alberto Mora, former General Counsel of the Navy; and Dr. Paula Dobriansky, former Under Secretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs .
Ridge will not support Trump!
Ridge tells Chuck Todd he will not support Trump if he is the Republican nominee. So is he going to vote for Hillary?
Watch Ridge’s interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd. Ridge is a Jeb! backer and although Trump promised to support whoever the Republican nominee is, Ridge isn’t going to support Trump.
With ‘friends’ like these, who needs enemies!
