Wow, glad we have a bunch of scared racists lending their ignorance to the comments section. I especially like the comment about "rape of white women in Germany is at an all time high". As if rape of white women are the only women that matter, not to mention no citing of the source of the statistic. Also love the easy cop out of "let's worry about Americans before foreigners". Why not help both? Besides, JrJr, my guess is that you do very little personally to help those in need in America. You probably vote in support of those who work tirelessly to end welfare benefits, cut benefits to those in need, and are against universal health care. You know, programs that disproportionately help those Americans you mention who are in need, including the elderly, the poor, and homeless veterans. It's a lame argument since there is always more we can do to help people here, so based on your argument you will never have to help or show compassion for refugees. It's depressing that we have such fearful, simple minded, and racist people in our community; precisely the reason that we need well-vetted refugees who will add to the diversity, intelligence, and incredible mix of people that make this community great.
