By the way, Syrian refugees almost sunk Sweden’s welfare state

“Joe wrote about how we’ve doubled the amount of Syrian refugees entering the United States from April. In all, 2,700 have been relocated here, while the Obama administration has promised to resettle at least 10,000—a figure that’s been a source of controversy given that there needs to be a screening process to weed out possible terrorists. FBI Director James Comey admitted that it’s impossible to fully screen every refugee, a point that was corroboratedby former Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), who served as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Governors from over half of the states have signaled their refusal to accept refugees relocating within their borders. That position is on some shaky legal ground, but the point is that there’s pushback.
