(Right Scoop) – Mark Levin doesn’t like the bill that passed the House today because it doesn’t do what Republicans are claiming it does.
He played Paul Ryan’s interview from last night on Hannity and took his arguments completely apart, pointing out that all a high level official in the Obama administration has to do is sign something saying the these refugees are ok.
Levin says the bill won’t work because it’s trying to hold a lawless administration to account who refuses to be held to account.
So it looks like Steve King was more right than I alluded to earlier. I’ll correct that.
Here’s what King had to say to The Blaze:
“I voted against the American SAFE Act because it fails to restore Congress’ Article 1 authority over admissions of migrants to the United States,” King said in a statement provided to TheBlaze.
“How can we trust this Obama Administration who will not utter the words ‘radical Islamic jihad’ to accurately screen Syrian and Iraqi refugees as required in this bill?” King continued. “For that reason, I submitted an amendment to Rules, which was ultimately not adopted, that would create international safe zones for refugees in their homeland. The safety and security of the American people is paramount. I respect the House trying to find a solution, but I do not believe this was the right or strong enough one.”
