The U.S. Record Shows Refugees Are Not a Threat

The U.S. Record Shows Refugees Are Not a Threat | Refugees and Displaced Peoples | Scoop.it
As Congress and others react to the Obama administration’s announcement that the refugee resettlement program will increase from the current 70,000 level to 85,000 next year and 100,000 in 2017, some are objecting on national security grounds. This commentary makes the case that the resettlement program is the least likely avenue for a terrorist to choose.

Brent Goodrich's curator insight, February 3, 8:36 AM

This article made the claim that refugees coming to America were not a problem and that they would add to the American society. The article said that their were only 3 refugees ever arrested for possible terrorist attacks and how all of the refugees were screened for possible problems. Any help that the United States can give the EU would be huge because they are running out of places to put the refugees. I think that the United States needs to take care of the homel people inside the country before we help other people. The efforts that have been given to the refugees would be much better used if they went to helping homeless people get an education and get back on their feet.

The United States took a lot more people after the Vietnam war and when Castro came to power. The author is arguing that Americas should take more refugees because they can and have in the past. Taking the refugees would make American look more friendly to the International community but it would affect Americans at home. I think that the USA should screen the refugees to find the best educated and productive so that they help the country and we look good but we don't get more people draining the social security.

Brent Goodrich's curator insight, September 11, 2015 3:13 PM

The United Nations organizations that are helping the refugees are running out of money. They have only received about a third of the money they need this year. This could lead to problems with starving people without medical care. This is why the people try to sneak into Europe. They have a horrible life in the Middle East. This is causing problems on the boarder between Europe and the Middle East and has strained relations even more. I think that Europe either needs to lock down the boarders and go against the last 60 years of their "help everybody" attitude or they need to no in and fix the root of the problem with troops to prevent the problem from growing.

Brent Goodrich's curator insight, September 25, 2015 2:57 PM

The EU does not have a plan to deal with the refugees. This is because there is not a single nation that is willing to step up and take them. Any plans to split them out among nations has failed because the Eastern nations are not agreeing to the plan. This has angered many of the Western leaders. This issue is creating friction between the members of the EU and could lead to a greater division between East and West. I think the the EU has been nice to do what it has and isn't obligated to take any of the refugees from anybody. The USA and the EU have every power to tell the refugees to leave and go back to their home country.
