I am a proud liberal. We obviously need checks when letting in anyone, but I refuse to become a xenophobic coward. That would be unamerican.

RE: Over half of U.S. states rejecting refugees
Instead of making all taxpayers foot the bill for these refugees, I think we should allow individual Americans apply to adopt refugees. Let's see how many of these bleeding heart liberals take them in and let them sleep in bedrooms next to their own children. Nighty night little Joey, sleep tight, Ahmed is in the next room over.

No, give them their own homes and jobs.

Because of Paris. The mastermind was not from France. He snuck in posing as a refugee (according to the French prime minister) and recruited local french Muslims. There is no way to properly check out these refugees. The refugees are probably good people (mostly, I'd hope), but there's no way to know what's in their heart. They could say anything to get here. It will only take a few. Just like Paris. And Americans will die. It's best to help them in their own country.

Wasn't that the same guy who bragged about traveling between Syria and Europe multiple times? Obviously he had means if he did it more than once.

How can we be certain about anyone who gets in?

You also didn't answer the question about the "innocents" terrorized by those people? What happens to them?

Do you think their lives aren't important enough to warrant help?

I did answer in the last line of my post. "It's best to help them in their own country." If we're going to continue being the world police, we can't just take everyone into America. We need to arm them and let them fight their own battles. According to the UN, half of the population of Syria has fled. That's a big fucking army of people. Give even 10% of them arms and they wipe out Assad and ISIS themselves. Instead, we take 10,000 and let the rest die or suffer in a shitty country. If the refugees are the good people, help them revolt and start a good country of their own. What would Americans do if someone like Assad came to power? We'd kill him within a week.

RE: Over half of U.S. states rejecting refugees
Regardless of the solution we go with, there will be a resource cost. Whether we provide for refugees directly, deploy to attack the problem at its roots, or do nothing and let the situation lead to increased resource instability, we're gonna pay for it. There's no getting out of that. One way or another, problems require resource expenditure in order to be solved.

That said, I think you might be surprised how much the community is chipping in. Real estate developers are putting commercial projects on hold to donate apartment complexes in the midst of renovation, unused schools, etc. as temporary refugee housing, and at great expense to themselves. Organizations like YMCA are doing the same.

Yeah, most people won't do anything. That's the same for both sides of the political scale, and for just about any major issue that comes up. Liberal or conservative, most people are much better at running their mouths than they are at actually taking action.
