EXCERPT FROM RUSH LIMBAUGH'S RADIO SHOW - MARCH 16, 2017:
We have Religious
tests all the time. There’s another religious test that we do with refugees. Refugees show up claiming asylum every day, and we ask them why, and many of them say, “Because there’s a religious war going on in my country and I’m from a war-torn nation and I have no future there.” “What country?” “San Cordoba.” “What is the nature of the religious conflict in San Cordoba?” The applicant describes it. So we have to run it down, we have to find out if this guy is a member of an aggrieved religious in San Cordoba. The idea that there’s no religious test is absurd.
We’ve always had one, and now we find out that there is even a religious Visa
that has been there for years. Here’s some numbers: “Between 2012 and 2016, the U.S. issued 23,029 R-1 visas — averaging 4,605 per year — as well as 7,637 R-2 visas…” Do you know what the R-2 visa is? That’s spouses and children of religious clerics and others. So how long have we been told here that there are no religious tests? The media, the Democrat Party, says that there can be no test, and we’ve got a religious visa for the clerics and the subsidiary visa for their spouses and their children.
The story yesterday was “Jihadis Using Religious Visa to Enter U.S.,” and yet we’ve got these know-it-all judges on whom the responsibility will never descend. If there’s a terrorist attack in the next couple of weeks, these judges aren’t gonna get blamed for any of it. We’ve got this judge saying, “Well, I heard Trump say he wants to ban Muslims during the campaign! So I don’t care what his executive order says; I know that Trump is a pig, and I hate Trump, and I know that Trump’s a scumbag and so therefore I’m here to thwart Trump because I hate him!”
That’s what this ruling essentially is, and it is a silent coup.
You know, Trump says, “Well, fine. I’ll take this all the way to the Supreme Court.”
I’m sorry, I don’t know that that’s the way to deal with it, although I don’t know what is.
RUSH: Now, the R visa program here that is talked about in this Fox News story from yesterday… Ready for this? More than 30% of these religious visas have been found to be fraudulent. That means 30% of the visas granted. We’re talking about, again, between 2012 and 2016. There were 23,000 of them. So 30% of those are fraudulent. That’s basically, what, 7,000, 6,500? No wonder the jihadists are using the R visa program, the religious visa program. I mean, if they’ll hide behind women and children in mosques, why wouldn’t they try to defraud our visa program?
