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 pull out of the middle east and quit terrorizing them. We are the biggest terrorists in the world.
I 100% think that the U.S. should take refugees from Syria. I personally believe that in order to prove that we are the great nation so many people think we are, taking in these refugees should be a priority for us. We should use what we have been blessed with to bless others from less fortunate countries in the world. Some say that it us not our duty to be responsible for foreigners and that it's not our problem ;however, it should be. We should want to take in refugees, want to help these people, and want to take this small step in making our world better. If we live with the mindset of "… Read more
Incompatable aggreved radical muslems from Syria CANNOT assimilate into our country because they HATE AMERICA and HATE AMERICANS. If you want to help them as a people, send them your money and let their neighbors (who share more values with them then we do) house them. Or, take a family of Syrian refugees into your own house. When your toddler son gets raped repeatedly, then I think you might change your mind on this matter.
No, we should, instead set up a "save heaven" closer to Syria so that the refugees aren't a threat to our country, but are also safe
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
We should make them better people and show the ways to be better and how to living comfortably and with some it can’t be helped but I feel the government should try.
The notion that all people, specifically Muslim's, from the middle east are terrorist, and that they shouldn't be allowed in america is not only xenophobic, but Islamophobic and racist
A sovern country can choose whom to allow entry. Historically, immigrants in the 19th and up to the mid 20th centrury actually WANTED to become AMERICANS. Syrians do not share our values, and hate us down deep. Radical Muslims are barbarians, and we already have enough barbarians here. No thanks
We should accept refugees as long as they are contributing members to society. Working and paying taxes as Americans do
The neighboring countries in the region bear some common responsibility to each other as human beings and it's in their own interest help their neighbors. Like we see with Poland and other ex soviet nations in regard to Ukraine.
