Country needs background checks on refugees

One of the worst threats in many of our minds would be the quiet infiltration of our country by militant jihadists who, once here, could cause the same atrocities on our citizens that we hear about practically every day in markets, restaurants and other places throughout the world. They are killing or maiming untold numbers. It’s bad enough we have our own homegrown would-be terrorists; we also have those in Congress who are asking the Obama administration to bring thousands of refugees from third world countries to the U.S. We have no way of screening or doing background checks on these people. The same goes for our southern border. Do you fear for our country? I do, greatly.
