You might recall that in his Thanksgiving address Obama likened Syrian refugees to the Mayflower pilgrims. Perhaps recent news coming out of Cologne has caused the White House to sense their talking points are falling apart and need shoring up.
@markknoller @benshapiro Wow. They just love to stick their fingers in Americans eyes, don't they? Classless.

Will there be any living non-indictable Americans in that box? https://t.co/fsv0GFeJkV

A refugee who would probably not be a refugee at all if not for Obama's feckless foreign policy. https://t.co/PAKGfa7hvQ
