Democrats Object To Plan To Subject Refugees To Lie Detector Tests Before Entry

The suggestion to subject Middle Eastern refugees to lie detector tests was brought up mid-December. Now, it’s part of actual legislation

(The Hill) A House lawmaker wants to require Syrian and Iraqi refugees to complete lie detector tests before being allowed to enter the country.

Rep. Ken Calvert (R-Calif.) has introduced legislation that would require the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), FBI and Office of the Director of National Intelligence to certify that the refugee has passed a polygraph as part of the screening process for applicants. (snip)

He also wants the three agencies to pledge that a potential refugee has handed over biometric data, including DNA, that would be used to check databases for any previous terrorist activity. The refugees would also need to complete background checks that include searching their Internet postings to determine if they are a threat to national security.

Seems like a common sense approach, in order to make sure the nation is protected. Along with questions regarding support for Islamic extremism, perhaps there should be questions for the males about rape, considering all the problems amongst the refugees in Europe. But, who could possibly object?

Senate Democrats, however, have pledged to block that bill if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) tries to bring it up. While the Republican leader is expected to try to move legislation on the refugee program early next year, it’s unclear what the bill will be.

Why are they pledging to block the bill? The article doesn’t say. Nor can I find it anywhere else. Could it be that the tests are “expensive”, running from $475 to $875? That would be funny, considering how much money Democrats piss away. Suffice to say, they want to block legislation that attempts to safeguard the American people. Perhaps the Democrats would offer to put up the refugees in their own homes and/or neighborhoods?

    Oh, surely you know the answer, Mr Teach! Requiring such tests constitutes profiling, constitutes singling out refugees because of their religion and ethnicity.

    The left think that it’s somehow wiser and better to scrutinize blue-haired little old ladies the same way that we check out swarthy Middle Eastern Muslims, because we might otherwise offend the swarthy Middle Eastern Muslims.

    Why is Donald Trump leading the polls? It’s because he has enough plain common sense to say things like that, and too many of the other candidates are eaten up with political correctness.

    One good argument against lie detector test is that they are bogus. They don’t work, they never have and the great thing about them is that people have no idea that it is a fraud. Best way to eliminate Islamic terror is to link terror to Islam and prevent the movement of Muslims.

    Just another dumb, impractical and demagogic “idea” from Republicans. Also, Republicans control the House and the purse strings, so they are just as culpable as Dems for “pissing away money”.
