Exactly why is it humanitarian for the United States or any western country for that matter to grant military aged males refugee status? I hate that their they were born into a hellhole and their people and cult are too backward to drag themselves above their petty tribal and sectarian feuds; but, not my effing problem.
Folks love to partially quote Emma Lazarus’ “The New Colossus”, “…Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”. We are and always will be a nation of immigrants. (Yes, even the folks that were here before the 16th Century moved here.)
BUT: We should not be a nation of suckers. What is there about an able bodied young man who really doesn’t like what America stands for that meets that passage? What benefit are we providing him, other than avoiding fighting for his own freedom (pick a side in Somalia, I haven’t got a clue)? He doesn’t want to be here, and while HE isn’t anymore, there are thousands more like him who have no business here at all.
Maybe Trump is a racist. It doesn’t make his policies wrong, just wrongly motivated. I’m a computer program gone rogue; ask me how much I care about motives relative to results.
Give us refugees, not infiltrators. — Gus
From Chattanooga and Fort Hood to San Bernardino and Orlando, we’ve witnessed jihad through mass shootings. From University of California Merced and the first Columbus, Ohio stabbing last year, to the Minneapolis mall stabbing and yesterday’s stabbing and vehicular attack at Ohio State, we are witnessing jihad by other means.
The common thread is not the weapon of choice, but the jihadist motivation perpetrated on America by individual Muslim immigrants or children born to immigrant parents that have been admitted over the past two generations to this country.
