Congressional Candidate for IL District 11 agrees with
 IL Governor re: Syrian Refugees
Darien, IL – November 18, 2015, I too agree with Governor Bruce Rauner that Illinois should temporarily stop accepting new Syrian refugees in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris.  The Governor is also correct that there must be a balance between the tradition of welcoming refugees while “ensuring the safety and security of our citizens.”  Yes, the inscription by Emma Lazarus at Ellis Island reads as, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.  Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”  But as they arrived, those seeking refuge in America, they were properly vetted before being sent on to the mainland.
Yes, all eight Illinois Republican House members stood up on Tuesday to support Rauners’ decision, but we need to go further for the future, so therefore, when I am elected, I will call for a review of the Refugee Act of 1980.
This act once again abdicated the States Rights to yielding more power to the Federal Government.  The Federal Government’s First Constitutional mandate is the safety and security of the U.S. Citizens.  We The People have a valid mistrust that this administration is incapable of keeping us safe, and the President refuses to acknowledge the expansion of the “JV Team” and doubles down on his “they’re contained” statement.  Attorney General Loretta Lynch refuses to answer a Congressional panel’s questions about the lack of properly vetting these Syrian refugees being a serious factor.  There will be Syrian soldiers and ISIS combatants and collaborators embedded with these refugees.  They are well funded and everyone knows I have been saying prior to the Paris attack, that they will sneak in through our porous border or through a loophole in our immigration policy.  Embedded within the Refugee Act is the Immigration and Nationality Act.  This will push these refugees to the head of the line of our already antiquated system.
There is another factor no one is discussing, the cost factor!  It is estimated that each group of 10,000 refugees will cost the U.S. Taxpayer upwards of $6.5 Billion dollars (that’s BILLION with a “B”.  Also embedded within this act is TITLE IV-MISCELLANEOUS AND REFUGEE ASSISTANCE, CHAPTER 2 – REFUGEE ASSISTANCE INA: ACT 412 – AUTHORIZATION FOR PROGRAMS FOR DOMESTIC RESETTLEMENT OF AND ASSISTANCE TO REFUGEES.  That’s right, another unfunded mandate forced upon the States by an unruly, bloated and wasteful bureaucracy.  The Act created INA:ACT 411 – OFFICE OF REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT a department head known as the “Director” appointed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, that’s right Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the Obamacare Czar overseeing another unfunded mandated forced down the throats of the American People.
I say it’s high time to retire these professional politicians so that we can get to zero based budgeting and shrink the size and scope of government.
I am Dr. Nick Stella, and I’m running for Congress in the 11th Congressional District to solve real issues with real fiscal solutions and yes, I approve this message!
