    In light of the assaults against German women last New Year's Eve, should a very strict policy

    regarding immigration be institutionalized & implemented?

    Yes, of course it would.  Common sense dictates whom we invite into our own homes, and for we citizens the entire USA is our home.

    In any group of say 1000 human beings, they will range from being very good people to very bad people, with the majority falling somewhere in the middle.

    Regardless of what we are being told, it is nearly impossible to properly vet everyone wanting to come to our country.  In many cases, there just are no records available to review on many of these people.

    We also need to consider cultural differences which we are finding to be vastly different.  Actions we in the USA would consider to be in violation of our way of life are considered acceptable and perfectly normal in the immigrants home culture.  For instance, we know for certain that Muslims view females in an entirely different way than we do in our culture.  They also prefer Sharia Law which we view as barbaric and brutal.

    Most new immigrants to our country make no effort to assimilate into our society and segregate themselves into communities of their own kind.  In some areas of the country we now have "No-Go" zones where  our police officers are forbidden to go.  I have no idea what idiot approved something like "No-Go" zones on US soil, but he or she belongs in a mental institution.

    Would anyone allow a group of strangers to move into the basement of their home with the promise they would never check on what they are doing down there?  I don't know about you but I wouldn't allow this.

    In summary, even if we were lucky enough to get some detailed information on an immigrants past history, we have no real concept of the cultural differences we will be facing.  This entire immigration issue has turned into nothing but a political football for our Politicians to leverage their way into office, or be allowed to keep their present position.  There is nothing positive about this that will make America a better place for we citizens.

    Many American Citizens are assaulted everyday by the same people as that German Woman, so what is the problem?

    I believe that even our own FBI director (I could be wrong on this) has said that we don't have what we ought to have in place to vet refugees or immigrants.

    We also ought to have in place teachers of English as a second language (ESL) to help people learn the language, then people need to learn the culture to get jobs, but I don't believe the vetting process takes into consideration any cultural issues.

    I think knowing cultural norms is especially important, as what is normal in some cultures is not in the United States.  An example might be the institution of Sharia Law for Muslims and the treatment they have of women. It is entirely possible that should Muslims come to this country without acculturation, that this may be seen as the norm; where it is DEFINITELY not the norm in the United States.

    When people are unable to get jobs to feed families (who also haven't been vetted, most likely), there is an immense likelihood to turn to crime to get money to feed families. This in turn feeds fear and unfortunately hatred and more violence. Because of the violence, there  tends to be unfair guilty by association.

    So, yes, a very strict policy ought to be implemented to prevent crime and ensure the safety of citizens. We can not be afraid that this can be construed as politically incorrect, as safety is for EVERY citizen of this land.

      It gets even more complicated when many of these "refugees" have no background data for us to look at.  Most of us would hold on to our own cultural beliefs and customs if we relocated to another country when not in public places.

    Yes. You can't import a million men from a true rape culture without acculturating them and expect Western standards of behavior.

    The true atrocity are the EU governments from UK to Germany to Norway and Sweden not only covering up the rapes, but in too many cases, actually covering them up because it is worse to be called racist for reporting most rapes are by Muslim men than actually protecting women from rape.

    We see this in the Rotherham child abuse scandal: 1,400 children exploited ... all by Pakistani Muslim men, over a decade, and British police forced teachers and social workers to shut up rather than admit and face that underaged white girls were groomed, raped and often forced into prostitution than say Muslim men were rapists and sex traffickers.
