    Default Thoughts on Syrian Refugees?

    Lately in the country, a heated topic among politicians have been whether it is a good idea to close our borders to Syrian Refugees. This debate is heavily talked about among the presidential candidates in the recent official debates. On the Republican/Conservative side, the most popular opinion is to not raise the number of Syrian refugees allowed in our country. This is due to the potential terrorist threat that Syrians pose, since a large amount of their population has known to be radical muslims.
    Although on the more Democratic/Liberal side of the argument, it is vocalized that it is unfair to not let Syrian Refugees come into the country. A large portion of Syrians are trying to get away from the hostile environment of poor Syrian areas. Coming to the United States gives those Syrians an opportunity to start over with a clean slate.
    As of right now, there is a total of 31 states which agree not to let Syrians in the country. When asked about this, Emily Morris, FPC Junior, stated that, “Well, America seems to be focusing too much on other countries. I do believe they should have help, but we should try and fix our mistakes instead.” Some people like Emily, are somewhere in between when letting in Syrians.
    Most teachers interviewed were more towards letting the refugees in. For example, Mrs. Courtney VandeBunte, FPC Science teacher stated, “I’m more on the liberal side of the argument. Our country was founded on the ideals of freedom welcoming everyone from all different parts of the world, it goes against our country’s morals. We should let them have a chance at the American dream just like everyone else.”
    FPC is a pretty diverse school, with a large variety of students with all different backgrounds. The most popular belief seems to be to let the Syrian refugees in our country. However, with 31 states in the United States wanting otherwise, who knows what the final verdict will be.

    I think it's clearly an influence in the school system, I haven't spoken to one person who has open arms to Muslim refugees from Syria. I'm sure that there are good people among them but if they are not going to assimilate not in my state or country.

    Thank you for demonstrating the liberal minds of many of our educators who would prefer to not address a potential threat to our countries security at this time, but would prefer to not think of this as anything but only the right thing to do.

    At what point in time would a liberal consider the security of our country more important then anything else?

    It's not a question of not wanting them here. It's a matter of our government not being able to do background checks.
    When you are fleeing a government like Syria's, do you really think they are going to freely give up that info?
    They missed the back ground check on the CA terrorist because her fingerprints and info weren't in a data base.
    Question is, what database??

    It goes against the morals of this country to have Americans killed in our streets by act of beheading. Any persons advocating the death of America is not welcome. And that you can find in the Constitution.

    Here is some thought on the subject.

    Read the book on medieval history by Susan Wise Bauer it will open your eyes to how cyclical history is. And show you why we can not let this culture propagate in America least we seal the end times of what we know as freedom at the top of the heap.

    It is quite clear that the "Inscription on the Statue of Liberty" is not an invitation to immigrants to come here to kill us, rape us, change our laws, invoke their religion upon us all, quite clear.


    Being liberal does not mean that you condone the murder of Americans by a people brought here, or perhaps better said, sent here to kill us.

    During the Cuban Boat lift those people were not let loose on the country. They were incarcerated at Ft. Smith Arkansas until they could be interviewed and clear. Many of them were sent back to Cuba.

    There is no intent to do harm to any person by incarcerating them. The intent is to prevent harm done to us.




    Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
    Send these, the homeless, tempest tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

    Seems EU has standards of sending people back home, that they are not an "open door" for everyone.

    Natasha Bertaud, a spokeswoman for the EU’s executive Commission.


    “This is a matter of credibility that we do return these people, because you don’t want to give the impression of course that Europe is an open door,” she said.

    “Most countries in the world don’t accept someone if cannot be proved that it’s one of their citizens,” Ribbenvik said.
    The US must be an exception to that standard.
