For Obama, It’s Muslims First, Safety Last

The National Security Entry-Exit Registration System for Islamists is no more.

The National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS) — designed to keep tabs on foreign visitors who occupy countries with Islamist ties — is no more. It’s all thanks to Barack Obama’s plan to hamstring the president-elect. According to The Washington Free Beacon, “The registry … was implemented after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, but has been dormant since 2011.”

There is fierce debate, particularly among civil liberty activists, regarding the constitutionality and effectiveness of the system. Yet one thing is clear: This move, as usual, reeks of politics. Obama had eight years to end the system, but he waited until a month before he vacates the White House to get rid of it. The timing obviously suggests Obama is scoring political points against Trump, and he’s doing so amid a plethora of headlines just this week about Islamic terrorism around the globe, including Berlin.

Ironically, DHS stated that NSEERS was “redundant, ineffective, and provided no increase in security.” That may or may not be true, but it can’t be any worse than Obama’s idea to relocate unvetted refugees to America. According to Gary Bauer, “He has dramatically accelerated the influx of refugees from the Middle East, bringing in more than 23,000 in recent weeks.” He adds, “Some politicians say that Angela Merkel has the blood of the Berlin victims on her hands. I would add that Obama’s hands are not clean either. He was among the most high-profile supporters of her open border policies, which allowed more than 1 million refugees into Germany.”

That’s because it was politically advantageous, just like it is to trash NSEERS. Obama can pretend all he wants to be protecting Muslims from unfair subjugation. But that doesn’t hide an ugly truth: He owns many of the problems we face from terrorism today. At least Republicans promote safety first.
