SHOCK POLL Shows How Americans REALLY Feel About Obama’s Refugee Resettlement

Very few Americans support resettling Syrian refugees on U.S. soil. There really is no big surprise there. However, a MAJORITY show to favor something else…and it’s interesting.


From Breitbart:

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs poll found that just 36 percent of Americans support admitting thousands of Syrian refugees to the U.S.

The plan is particularly unpopular among Republicans of whom just 18 percent support Syrian resettlement in the U.S., down from 27 percent logged in 2014. Independents were also sour on the idea of Syrian refugees in the U.S.; the poll found that just 32 percent supported such a plan, down from 40 percent in 2014.

On the other hand, a majority of Democrats, 56 percent, were likely to say they support Syrian refugee admissions, up slightly from the 55 percent the poll found in 2014.

The shift in attitudes has occurred against a backdrop of presidential politics and warnings from top officials that the vetting process for Syrian refugees could be vulnerable to terrorist infiltration. The Obama administration is currently on pace to admit more than 10,000 Syrian refugees this fiscal year and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has expressed support for increasing the level admitted by 550 percent.

While most Americans would prefer not to see Syrian refugees resettled in the U.S., more are supportive of limited U.S. combat engagement with the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria, the poll revealed. Seventy-two percent of Americans said they support “conducting airstrikes against violent Islamic extremist groups,” 57 percent said they support “sending special operations forces into Syria to fight violent Islamic extremist groups,” and 52 percent said they support “enforcing a no-fly zone over parts of Syria, including bombing Syrian air defenses.”

The poll also reveals that a majority does not want to join in more collaborative action with Syrians, like negotiating peace. However, numbers certainly do reflect Americans want to go in and wipe out ISIS.
