    When I read this article, it began to make sense how terrorists can come safely into America, and not be caught. Remember, when you read this article, these are the same US paid employees assuring us that the refugees, et al, have been properly screened, and Americans have nothing to fear, but fear itself. We are all dabs, because the tough questions have been asked of potential terrorists, and they've been deemed harmless, peace loving folks, wanting to be like all other Americans.

    As for me and my family, we will choose to remain vigilant, watchful, and ready for what may come our way,.no thanks to the US of A.

    Are you comfortable with our vetting process?

    If they won't eat a pork sandwich and pledge allegiance to our flag then they cannot be admitted into our country! :)

    These questions aren't something dreamed up by this administration. They've been on the application for some time. There's logical reasons that they are on there, Of course no one that is looking to commit terrorism is going to answer "yes" on the questionnaire. No one in government is naive enough to believe they are.

    It just seems ridiculous to ask such questions. It is a complete waste of time and paper to have them on there. They know the answers will always be no so why bother? It just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.

    It provides a very clear cut method to revoke a visa and deport someone. If they answer NO to a question like "Have you ever or do you intend to provide financial assistance or other support to terrorists or terrorist organizations?" and then we find a financial contribution to a terrorist organization, the law is very clear that they lied and we can revoke/deport.

    When did Obama say background checks do not work? I thought he wanted to expand them.

    I just heard Judge Andrew Napolitano this morning answer that question.
    He said that the questions MUST be asked.
    The visitor answers "no" to the questions (which they expect). However they may now scan their phones, email, etc without a search warrant (didn't explain why). If they didn't ask this question or the visitor was allowed to leave it blank then they (USA Government) would have to obtain a search warrant to scan their private documents.

    Thanks for the explanation. It makes perfect sense. Now I understand it.

    It's kinda like how the then INS denaturlized and deported the Concentration Camp guards a decade or so ago. Back in the day, the question was "Were you a member of [fill in the name of a NAZI party or SS organization]?" When it was proved they had lied on the form, they got the boot.

    Sure.

    Now that I think of it, that's probably why they ask (what I thought was silly) if you plan to bring explosives on a plane when you make a flight reservation.

    In actuality it probably gives the TSA implicit permission to search you, your stuff, etc.

    I feel the need to point out that the title of this thread claims that this article is about "questions used in [the] refugee interview vetting process," while the article is about the questions asked those who apply for a visa to enter the United States. The vetting process for refugees is intensive. The vetting process for those who are applying for visas is normally minimal unless that person is coming from certain parts of the world. Therefore the entire thread is completely misleading.

    And a word about questionnaires like this... If you have ever purchased a firearm in the United States, you have to answer at short similar questionnaire as the initial part of the process before they do the background check. It is not the whole process, but simply a starting point for the investigation.
