According to AL-05 Congressman Mo Brooks, Democrats want to extend a helping hand to Syrian refugees in order to curry favor with Muslim voters – a huge voting block of approximately 1% of the entire US population. That number is expected to grow to a whopping 2.1% by 2050. Why congrats, Democrats! It’s about time you started taking the long view of things.
This is just the latest installment in our coverage of Rep. Brooks “charm offensive” – where he’s never charming and always offensive.
But here, the guy who accused President Obama of luring child refugees from Central America with “happy meals,” has hit a new low – temporarily, no doubt. Just wait for next week’s press release!
All those Syrians who brave cold, danger, drowning, and beggar themselves to pay smugglers to escape the twin threats of Assad and ISIS…. They’re looking for a paid vacation courtesy of US taxpayers.
“We’re paying them about $15,000 a year in free health care, free food, free shelter, free clothing, free transportation,” Brooks said. “That answers very quickly why so many of them want to come to the United States of America.”
“We’re paying them to come here,” the Alabama congressman concluded. “It’s a paid vacation!”
$15,000 a year and Brooks thinks this is living high off the hog? No wonder he opposes a minimum wage increase. American workers might then live in the same lap of luxury we offer refugees.
Attention, Rep. Sewell. You’re running with the wrong crowd!
