President Obama recently declared that the U.S. will accept 10,000 refugees from Syria. The U.S. has been under pressure from its Syrian allies to help out with the crisis in which 3 Million refugees have fled Syria in the past year. Those in favor of accepting refugees believe that the U.S. has a duty to join its allies in Europe and accept at least 10,000 refugees. Opponents argue that the U.S. should stay out of this crisis and accepting refugees from the Middle East leads to a risk of letting terrorists into our borders.
We should allow only persons who can PROVE that they are who they say they are and only after extensive checks. They should have to report their whereabouts on a continuous basis
for several years. They should not be allowed in unless someone vouches for and takes financial responsibility for them
Israel opened its borders to jews after WW2 so in that sense I am open to accepting refugees. However because of BLM and other free for all groups, I feel like the US has become a battle ground within its own borders and at this point in time, we can not accept refugees until the US cleans up from within.
After seeing how these refugees treat the welcoming country's, blowing up building, airports, killing people enjoying their lives, no I don't want them here to do the same. My experience with Muslims, they don't want to assimilate. They want us to be like them. Ugh! Sinful.
Not just no.. But HELL no. When we were faced with a revolution 240 years ago, we stood up and fought. Let them stay in their own country and do the same. The Syrian "refugee crisis" is nothing less than an orchestrated invasion of Europe and the US.
They need safety. We should take them and do the same thing that was done to the Japanese during WW2. We should give them all of the necessities of life including good living quarters (mobile homes would be good), medical care, education. For the ones who want to stay here there should be, along with background checks and continuous monitoring, the learning of our language and customs and the acceptance of both.
No, and this is important, if there is more than a normal chance they will find time to arrange to kill people - at all, they must not be let in. But, you must be sure. Most of them who become terrorists are actually in need of sleep and food and love. But this does not mean it is time for a love-in with them. If keeping them out is necessary for our country to defend itself, they ought be kept out, but as soon as they are educated and become people with wonderful dispositions who will enhance our population because they are really nice people and make a good effort to get along with others, they can come in if we're sure. We are good people and should not be being killed by people with agendas like some of those people have. They are misguided and sad people and going nowhere good. I will accentuate the "BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY" phrase here.
Individual states or even better, cities should decide if they are to accept them. If the refugee leaves the city or state whatever they should be liable to be deported back to the country from which they came. They are not a citizen, and they do not have the rights of a citizen. They would be here out of a kind gesture and should not take ill advantage of that. They could apply to become citizens absolutely but until they are, they are simply not.
I believe everybody should be accepted and welcomed. But this does not mean we just let in dangerous criminals mixed with children and vulnerable people. I think that background checks would be beneficial but I don’t want to deny anybody who is in an unsafe place, as a person who is adopted from another country I can understand and am grateful to the USA for all the opportunities and privileges afforded me.
