Obama set to deport 12 Iraqi Christian refugees

Nearly half of the 27 Iraqi Christians the Obama administration has been holding for the past six months at an ICE detention center in Otay Mesa, California, are set to be deported in coming weeks, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Monday.
An immigration judge ordered their removal in the last two weeks, ICE spokeswoman Lauren Mack said. She declined to provide specific information about why the immigrants are being deported and where they will be taken.

Immigrants who face deportation are typically returned to the country where they were living before entering the United States. It’s likely that most of the Iraqis will be deported to such countries as Australia, New Zealand, Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan, where many United Nations refugee camps are stationed.

If those nations send these Christians back to Iraq they will face almost certain death.

I thought a Judge ordered the deportation not Obama (and Congress passed the laws that the Judge is following/interpreting)

But in any case, the way to fix such immigration situations (where the deportees have lied on documents while entering the country), is for the Congress to pass a law quickly to make them a special case and stop the deportation.

Hopefully the Republic Congress and Senate will pass such a law (I doubt that the Democrats will oppose at all). Maybe people should contact their Congressman?

Always consider the source of the news. The thing to remember about WND.com is that it’s primarily geared towards anti-Obama types, so any excuse will be found to tie Obama to an outrage, no matter how tenuous, such as this case.

Obama is a liberation theolgoy Muslim

The whole mid east refugee thing is a lose-lose situation…there will be bad guys in with the genuine refugees. Yes, we should help, maybe even trust, but we also need to verify and protect our own. All you can do is pray for genuine guidance.

Sure, because the BO administration is such a stickler when it comes to legal immigration, right? :rolleyes:

There’s a very good reason why WND is referred to as Wing Nut Daily.
