Syrian families are being "resettled" in America - how do you feel about it?


The first family under a speeded up "surge operation" for refugee resettlement in America, left Jordan Wednesday for Kansas City, MO. Ahmad al-Abboud, his wife and five children are coming as part of a targeted 10,000 people plan set up by President Obama by September 30th..

    A nice compendium most likely contained in Sharia Law as well. It is a 3rd world primitive belief system that is fighting its way into the liberals concepts of non discrimination. In modern society, it is a virus waiting to take control of the host.

    We have homelessness, hunger, and a myriad of other issues right here in our own country - I think we need to focus on helping American Citizens before accepting any refugees from anywhere else - all politics and religion aside.

    They are the "poster children" of the program, and by your response, the effort to pull the wool over people's eyes is working - soon single men will come, bet they won't be on the news though

    Agreed - if you add up the number of young men who left Syria, they could have formed an army more than capable of defeating ISIS and regaining their homeland.

    I have 3 cousins that lived near the Paris bombing. My family survived WWII. We know only too well. People try to say these "refugees" are the new Jews. They are the new Nazis, openly saying they want to kill Jews.

    Great observation - but I think in order to count they need to be given refugee status which basically legalizes them

    Recent data in Canada about 25K recent "refugees": Gov. claimed most refugees rescued from camps. Reality; 90% were already settled elsewhere. Then tried to claim most were professionals English speakers able to work. Opposite is true.

    I like the way you've stated your arguement - logical, fact based, and seems to be from your heart. Yet, I still am not ready to agree until we have our own house in order.

    The colonists came to escape tyranny, not intolerance / those same colonists would be repelling these invaders with powder and shot

    I think the globalist ambitions of Obama override any commit to America's safety or sovereignty - its not about empathy, its about diluting American culture and splitting opinion

    Tin foil hat, you'd better start wearing it, those voices you hear are nuts. Yeah, Trump came from a country full of terrorists who were at war with all western civilizations.

    This man was interviewed an he really wants to be an American - could be a poster child to create the feel good cover for the rest of them?

    The Liberal Plantation needs more workers!!!! They are afraid that Trump will deport the illegals, so they are turning to refugees which are much harder to get rid of.

    Totally disagree - don't make the same excuse "it's only a few militants" the entire premise of Muslim life, sharia law, and more - do you want to start wearing a burka? Lose you freedom to speak out? Don't be PC, be an American
