"I will acknowledge readily that the scale of the problem will persist long after those 10,000 Syrians have made it into the United States..." said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

    For once I agree with Obama

  • Only 10,000? This is totally not enough.
    These people are running away from fanatic fascist nonsense and they need our help immediately.
    Bring all of these people to the USA. We should welcome every single one who wants to come here.

    These people should be treated like VIPs!

    Tis a Muslim problem and therefore should be handled by Saudi Arabia and Iran.

  • George Nixon Shuler

    Agreed. This is good policy.

  • Jack

    I agree, too.

    Atheist Max, as part of bringing people in, there’s a vetting process. If you bring in literally everybody, it becomes impossible with our existing human resources.

    I agree it should be a lot more than 10,000, but it can’t be unlimited or it overwhelms the system.

    And then, you increase the risk of a “fanatic fascist” or two….or three…or thirty-three….sneaking in with the vast majority of refugees who are fine.
