Let them in
Today the House passed a bill that will slow down, if not stop refugees from Syria from being able to be re-settled in the United States. This is in my view a mistake. For one, it doesn’t address the serious issue of the Administration refusing to give governors information as to their plans, and other concerns that some have raised.
