Hungary was the first European Union (EU) to say no, by building a 100-mi razor-wire border to keep out the “refugees”.
Now Poland is also saying “no”.
Daily Mail reports, Nov. 25, 2015, that newly elected Prime Minister Beata Szydlo says Poland will refuse to submit to an European Union (EU) quota of taking in 4,500 “refugees” from Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa, citing the recent Paris terror attacks as the reason.
One of the suspected terrorists is believed to be a “refugee” who left his Syrian passport at the scene of one of the Paris attacks.
Szydlo said: “After Paris, the situation has changed. We will be proposing to sit down at a table and think over, whether the solutions which have been proposed are good. In our view, we are not prepared to accept those quotas of refugees.”
Szydlo made the announcement without the gold star-studded EU flag in the background. Only the red and white Polish flag is displayed — causing speculations as to whether Poland might leave the EU.
In September, Poland’s previous center-right pro-EU government had backed the deal to take in 4,500 refugees. But the new government, formed earlier this month by the conservative p, appears to have reversed the Polish position.
Szydlo’s comments mean Poland is breaking ranks with neighboring Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia who support the EU deal to share 120,000 refugees across the 28-nation bloc. Any revision to the deal would likely deepen the divisions within the EU over how to handle the more than 800,000 migrants who have entered Europe this year.
Szydlo’s Law and Justice party, which won the election after eight years in opposition, supports Poland’s EU membership but is eurosceptic and desires greater independence from Brussels.
Asked about the missing EU flag, Szydlo said: ‘We’re an active EU member… but we adopted the approach that statements after government meetings will take place against a backdrop of the most beautiful … white-and-red [Polish] flags. We’re going to pursue a policy that, while appreciating our EU membership, secures maximum benefit for our Polish citizens, for Poland’s economy and for our homeland. I’m very happy that in today’s difficult times we are members of the EU and NATO.”
Meanwhile, in the United States, the House passed H.R. 4038: American SAFE Act of 2015 that would slow down or even stop Obama’s announced increase in bringing to America “refugees” from Syria and other “ISIS-ravaged” countries in the Middle East, by requiring “supplemental certifications and background investigations be completed prior to the admission of certain aliens as refugees, and for other purposes.”
HR 4038 is necessary because the FBI has admitted they don’t have the data base to vet or screen the “refugees” to ensure they are not terrorists/jihadists. That means Obama’s policy of taking in thousands of mainly Muslim “refugees without our even knowing what and who they are is insane.
Obama has threatened he would veto HR 4038.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has fast-tracked a vote on HR 4038, which means the bill is cleared for an immediate floor vote that can happen any time in this week.
Please tell your senators to vote “yes” on H.R. 4038: American SAFE Act of 2015.
