Why Are We Taking in Refugees?

The controversy over Donald Trump’s call for a halt to taking in Muslim refugees until they can be adequately vetted brings to mind the question: Why is the U.S. even taking in refugees? Apart from the terrorist dangers surrounding the vetting issues, we certainly no longer have the resources to take in refugees or any new immigrants. Yes, it’s altruistic to welcome newcomers, according to the MSM, the establishment politicians, and the “We care so much” liberals, if you have the ability to take care of them or a job for them. But the reality is, the U.S. cannot take care of its own citizens, much less take care of everyone who wants to come here, whether legally or illegally.

    We’re only $20,000,000,000,000.00 in debt. What could be wrong with importing millions of culturally incompatible illiterates who hate us and further burden taxpaying citizens who will never receive social security? Go Trump!!!!

    Because we will be called racists if we don’t.

    • Dana Garcia

      Haven’t they worn that word out yet? Zzzzzz.

  • Because some, hate America democrats, want to destroy the greatest human system ever created.

    Why? Leftist politics of hate.

  • Hard Little Machine

    It’s a strategic blunder to resist this. let the chips fall where they may. the left is nothing if not ruthlessly political for its own ends. they were hoping for resistance. don’t give it to them and let them own this disaster.

      that’s like saying “don’t get in those two remaining Titanic lifeboats, your glorious death for the cause will show that incompetent Captain up and make his failure complete”

      we must resist the evil left with every breath in our bodies

      • Hard Little Machine

        No you have to let it burn to the ground on its own. You can’t interfere when the left is committing suicide. Of course a bunch of innocents will get killed but they were going to get killed anyway. Better not to try to step in an accept any blame for that.

    I recall a recent article that stated only 14% of Syrian refugees are working, in Norway, four years after they were given residency. Do other countries think they will have a higher %?

    Now Norway is paying “asylum seekers/refugees” to go home.

    • simus1

      The 14% now working are most likely newly hired social workers and such with close extended family ties to the gangs that are dominant within that migrant community.

        There’s lots of jobs as paid translators. Any contact with officialdom drives the host community language from their minds and a paid translator is required.

    The supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils.

    When large numbers of a new invasive species are introduced for no apparent reason, it is often done because those in charge find there is something unhelpful about the status quo they don’t wish to discuss..

    WHY ARE WE TAKING IN REFUGEES? – so the elite can feel good about THEMSELVES.

    They do not care about the peasants who will be paying of all these “refugees”; they only care about FEELING GOOD about themselves.
