Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis who have fled their homeland are likely to seek refugee status in the United States, humanitarian groups said, putting intense pressure on the Bush administration to reexamine a policy that authorizes only 500 Iraqis to be resettled here next year.
Do we really need to admit hundreds of thousands of more Islamic immigrants? Think about the Somali taxi drivers in Minneapolis imposing their interpretation of Sharia on airport passengers arriving with duty free liquor or wine from California. Given the fact that a war against our civilization has been declared and is supported by an unknown percentage of the world's Muslims, what advantage is there for us in even more Muslim immigrants?
The opportunity to infiltrate terrorists alone makes the idea of screening hundreds of thousands a joke.
Why should we take it upon ourselves to try to help these Iraqis? We got rid of their tyrant for them, and they screw it up, and then expect America to welcome them to our shores.
