Omnishambles Woodhouse says our refugee vetting is just fine. Oh crap…

It’s not just that we are expecting them to screen suicide bombers and sleeper cells, but also other practical problems such as men with multiple wives.  

It’s all very well to say they are screened by the UN, but it would be a lot smarter to just not leave these sorts of decisions up to a Minister that said dairy farming was low risk, but worm farming can kill you.

The weekend attacks in France don’t mean Syrian refugees coming to New Zealand need further screening, Immigration Minister Michael Woodhouse says.

About 100 Syrian refugees are due to arrive in January, the first group of the 750 that the government has agreed to accept.

The attacks in France are reported to have been planned in Syria and carried out by terrorists who had been in Syria.

Mr Woodhouse says the refugees have been screened by the United Nations and by New Zealand officials.   

“That gives me a high level of confidence in the people we are accepting,” he told reporters on Tuesday.

“I don’t think (more screening) is necessary – we have good information on the people we are considering for resettlement and I’m satisfied with that.”

Mr Woodhouse says people involved in terrorist attacks are moving across Europe in a relatively uncontrolled manner.

“The people being accepted into New Zealand have probably been in refugee camps and out of Syria for quite some time,” he said.

“It wouldn’t be appropriate to compare one situation with the other.”

I am not comfortable with the UN vetting process, after this is the same UN that allows Hamas to use UN schools and hospitals to launch terror attacks from.

Woodhouse is an idiot. The answer though is really simple…just admit only Christian refugees.
