The website Refugee Resettlement Watch points out that what happened in Europe could soon be coming here. As the site notes:

Because this blog is about refugees, I just checked the numbers of Muslim refugees admitted to the US since Obama was elected (but this has been going on for at least a decade before that through the George W. Bush Presidency as well!).

The number of Muslim refugees totaled 154,160 (in a total refugee count of just short of a half million for all religious persuasions) since the fall of 2008 (to March 15, 2016).

They break down like this: 69,400 Moslems (sect not specified), 33,000 Shiite Moslems, and 51,760 Sunni Moslems.  That is just in less than 8 years!

Those numbers do not include all the Muslims who came in through the Diversity Visa Lottery, those who are here in Temporary Protected Status, Student visa holders and the list goes on. And, it doesn’t include all of those who have entered the US illegally and then applied for asylum!

While this is a terrifying scenario, it's also worth noting that America has both a massive national security apparatus and greater economic opportunities for immigrants than most European nations, who have disregarded their own national security and culture for too long and let America do all the heavy lifting. Still, with a President who's more concerned with whether or not our policies offend Muslims than whether or not they keep us safe, it could only be a matter of time.
