• Huma Abedin: Clinton Campaign ‘Committed To Bringing Syrian Refugees Here’

    Project Veritas released a hidden camera footage featuring Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign vice chair, Huma Abedin, pledging her commitment to allowing Syrian refugees settle in the U.S.

    “We are a country of immigrants. We welcome people, and when you listen to the Republicans, and this is my battle cry, it is really scary on the other side,” Abedin told an undercover Project Veritas reporter at a private New York City fundraiser last week.

    “We need to have leadership on this. We cannot turn these people away,” Abedin said with frustration. “The alternative … we’re going to be an isolationist country, turning everybody away. It is not OK.”

    Abedin started her career alongside Clinton as a White House intern, worked alongside Clinton in the U.S. Senate and at the State Department and now serves as the vice-chairwoman of the 2016 campaign.

    The video also includes footage of Syrian refugees in Greece who praising Hillary Clinton’s praises and discussing the possibility of using fake passports to enter Europe.

    Fifty-four percent of Americans oppose allowing Syrian refugees into the United States, according to a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll, yet the Obama administration plans to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees next year and Clinton has said that the U.S. should accept 65,000 Syrian refugees.
