    About time, too. Glad to see they're ignoring the dumb*** in chief and his edicts. Granting these people refuge does more to spark goodwill for us in the Middle East than all the pallets of rifles and bombs ever will. These people have been through a two year long vetting process, enough is enough.

    Maybe now they'll take some gay concentration camp refugees from Chechnya. Can't believe they denied them visas.

    That falls solely on the Trump administration. The policy during the Obama years was to grant asylum to victims of LGBTQ persecution. That stopped when Tillerson and crew took over.

    Were you bothered by the annual refugee limit when other presidents were setting it or did you magically only care about it once Trump arrived?

    Until any if you volunteer to take some of these refugees into your own home I dont want to hear it.

    The parents of the Manchester bomber were refugees as well.

    Hurray for national suicide!!!!!!!

    Yep. Limits of refugees bother me. These are the neediest of the needy and should go to the head of the que.

    What an unAmerican attitude. Of course I expect nothing else from Trump supporters and neo-Conservatives.

    The immigrants have been vetted in a process that takes over two years. That's vastly more time than a normal visa takes. How much time do you suggest we take? 5 years? 20? Naw, you'd rather not take any refugees that our government and their Russian allies have created.

    As for where I am from, what the devil does that have to do with anything? My ancestors came here as refugees in 1635, fleeing British persecution and seeking economic freedom.

    To be fair, Trump has ratcheted things up in the military area, but he seems to be creating more terrorists by murdering civilians in Iraq and Syria.

    Yep. Beyond dispute, but Obama is not in the seat of power any longer. It all lands in Trumps lap. He is the one responsible for current actions.

    You think these people just sit on the border for 2 years while they are being vetted? They aren't.
    --- Post Merged, May 27, 2017 ---
    It doesn't matter if more people are killed by domestics rather than immigrants or refugees. Every death at the hands of an immigrant or refugee is a death that could have easily been avoided. Simply don't let them in. It's exactly that easy.

    Why do we assume Trump doesn't know about this?

    Probably because they don't have coloring books that explain it.

    I'd be willing to bet you have an ancestor that was an immigrant.
