BILL O'REILLY: Because of politics, you are not being told the true story about the Syrian refugee situation.
The Democratic Party wants the world to believe that Republicans are mean-spirited and anti-immigrant.
The Republican Party wants the world to believe that Democrats are soft on terrorism and sympathize more with Muslims than other people.
So let's get to the truth of the matter.
According to a recent ABC News poll, 54% of Americans oppose taking in Syrian refugees even after they've been screened for security.
Forty-three percent of Americans are okay with admitting those refugees.
Now the reason most Americans do not want to accept Muslim refugees is not based on ethnicity or religion, it is based on security.
The cold truth of the matter is the majority of Americans have no confidence that the Obama administration can protect them from harm.
That is the crux of the matter -- that President Obama and the Democratic Party are so liberal, so frightened and so chaotic they cannot provide security for we the people.
Talking Points believes the majority of Americans firmly believe that.
And the opinion is based on fact.
The southern border of the United States is still insecure.
According to Border Patrol statistics, nearly 5,000 unaccompanied children were apprehended in October trying to cross the border illegally.
In the first half of November, three thousand more were caught.
That is a record number for that period of time and again highlights the fact that the southern border remains porous.
So after seven years, the Obama administration has not been able to secure the southern border despite the deadly terror threat facing America.
Want more? Here we go.
According to a document obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies, the Department of Homeland Security freed 36,000 convicted criminal aliens in the year 2013.
Among those 36,000 freed, 193 had homicide convictions, 426 sexual assault convictions, 1,075 aggravated assault convictions and more than 9,000 were convicted of dealing dangerous drugs.
All told the 36,000 criminal aliens freed by ICE had 88,000 criminal convictions in the USA.
That is simply disgraceful, a danger to all of us and is directly on the president of the United States, who could not care less.
