Refugee Program Works…

Dear Editor,

The refugee program works. Specifically our refugee program works very well. Since 9/11/2001, over a million refugees have been settled in america. Refugees are far more respectful of American laws than us locals. For America to be a savior to such a large number of people is rewarding.

I don’t see a credible risk to not maintain a reasonable amount of refugees, and increasing the number by 10,000 from Syria is acceptable. It is unfounded to say Muslims should not be allowed to come here now, when for so long they have been coming here. Also the fact that a large part of our population is Muslim and has been for a long time.

I don’t believe the rationale to stop them from coming adds up. After seeing a mostly sensational campaign to defame all Muslims as terrorists, I did my own research. Time after time, I found claims of threats of terrorism by Muslims here in the U.S. to be false or at the least very misleading. I won’t be part of misinformation about the refugees. If everything I’ve heard was true, then I would not agree with allowing more to come, but that is not the case.

I could go a lot further, but I’ve said enough.
