    Turning back Syrian refugees isn't just wrong — it helps ISIS

    Syrian refugees arrive at the Greek island of Lesbos, a major intake point for migrants.

    • The following are things that have been said about Syrian refugees in the last few days:
    • 2. That they are culturally incapable of integrating into the United States — not least because of the weather. [BuzzFeed / Andrew Kaczynski]
    • 3. That one Syrian refugee, who has moved from his original resettlement in Louisiana and whose whereabouts aren't currently known by the agency that initially resettled him, must be "headed towards DC" (which was threatened in a recent video purported to be from ISIS). [Sen. David Vitter via The Hayride / Chris Nakamoto]
    • This is what Syrians in the US are hearing the US thinks of them. That impression will only get more powerful if GOP governors do use their power to punish refugees: they can't bar them, but they can make it harder for them to learn English and get job training. [Vox / Dara Lind]

    The cost to bring the 10,000 here would allow us to shelter more than 100,000 there

    As for the threat to European Jews in the 1930's it was known what Hitler wanted to do, he wrote a book about it.
    The big difference is, it was not likely that Nazi intelligence agents infiltrated the Jewish populations, it is highly likely that ISIS and Al Qeda has infiltrated these refugees.

    The US closed the doors to immigration during the 1920's. Early on the US had excluded Chinese, Japanese, and other Asians, but later the US began to exclude even Europeans, particularly eastern and southern Europeans.

    Also, let us not forget that the USA was in the middle of the Great Depression in the 1930's
    and in 1938, we actually had a recession in the middle of the great depression
    no one was getting in here

    Gee, a Democrat putting America first, it has been a long time

    How is a 3 year old orphan getting from Syria to the USA?
    someone is bringing them, at is who I fear
    As for the women they strap on the bombs just as easily as the men.


    Sorry the Reps did not create this problem, Barry did by creating a vacuum when he completely withdrew from Iraq
    You need to get that straight this is Barry';s doing of course we cannot expect him to take responsibility for anything

    Republican candidates for President are competing for your vote, how they get that is to appeal to your fears and bias.
    Voting for them tells us a lot about you

    I see he's working on a new standup comedy routine, looks like it fell a little flat, maybe try a laugh track.

    funny how wanting to protect America and American lives is now considered a "bias"

    Shame the Dems cannot open their eyes to the reality of the situation

    Sheep
    By Pink Floyd
    Hopelessly passing your time in the grassland away
    Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air
    You better watch out,
    There may be dogs about
    I've looked over Jordan, and I have seen
    Things are not what they seem

    What do you get for pretending the danger's not real
    Meek and obedient you follow the leader

    Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel
    What a surprise!

    A look of terminal shock in your eyes
    Now things are really what they seem
    No, this is no bad dream

    I don't see fear in the American people, I see concern for prudent security. We don't need condescending lectures about fear from a guy surrounded by Secret Service to protect him from his own citizens. Which by the way I have no problem with, it's prudent security.
