Screening Refugees and Following Up

For John, BLUFThere are reasons people are nervous about refugees.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From the Telegraph, by Reporters Matthew Holehouse, and Henry Samuel in Paris, in Brussels.  "Terrorist ringleader got into EU as 'refugee'".  The sub-headline is "Thousands of jihadists not being monitored".  Interesting.

The lede is:

The mastermind of the Paris attacks was able to slip into Europe among Syrian migrants, it emerged last night, as police on the continent admitted they are unable to monitor thousands of suspected jihadists.
This is different from the idea that he was a "home grown" terrorist.

And, it brings us to Republican Candidate Marco Rubio, who noted today that maybe we should prioritize those coming from Syria in terms of the threat to their lives, Christians, etc being at most threat.
