President Obama has in the past referred to ISIS as the “JV team” and said the terror group is “contained.” Obama has also chided Republican opposition to massive influx of refugees without thorough vetting, saying GOP critics are scared of “widows and orphans.”
Reality, however, says otherwise when it comes to all of the above:

From The Guardian:
Refugees from the Middle East and north Africa are “masking the movement” of terrorists and criminals, Nato’s top commander told Congress on Tuesday, despite the protests of human rights groups who say that refugees overwhelmingly have no ulterior motive but escape.
In testimony to the Senate armed services committee, US general Philip Breedlove said that the Islamic State terror group is “spreading like a cancer” among refugees. The group’s members are “taking advantage of paths of least resistance, threatening European nations and our own”, he added.
What say you, President Obama?
