Not sure how you feel,but I seems to have some problem accepting refugees. my concern is keeping our nation safe.We have to do a lot of screening. How do we vet these folks.This is sort of bothersome. Where will they go.Do they have to go through a lot of screening? How long is this going to take us?several years or more. Look I do have a heart,but we need to realistic about this. Was this a mistake on this.What is your feel about this?do you feel safe?

There are very few members of the general public in Europe that are happy about this.

Well I for one think we should be concerned about the people we have now in our country that we cant take care of, why accept more people when we cant handle our own? I really think this is a bad idea if we allow this for so many reasons.

We should have jobs for everyone here before we take in more people.

i was going to do a discussion on this but i know my opinion would pee off some people for one reason or another. ill answer this from the perspective that i started to write it in. it was a bit from outside the box and well a bit of a jerk attitude and a little over the top. from the perspective of the native american- " undocumented, uinscreened immigrants seeking refuge from religious persecution in thier homeland came to my country a long time ago, look at how that has turned out." basically the u.s. wants to do the same thing france and europe did in the past, and look at how its worked out currently.

@amadeo i dont think many would understand the view i was coming from. people tend to get offended easily and take things out of context. ill just save it somewhere.

In the U.S. the reason we don't want the refeugees is that we don't have a good way to screen them to weed out ISIS and other terrorists who have infiltrated the refugees.

I do feel safe and we cannot shut the door on anyone BUT there must be an extensive screening process as you mention for security measures
