After the Paris attacks, with the Brussels lockdown, and now more tension between Turkey and Russia.. there is a lot of conflict in dealing with ISIS. And even more threats from ISIS, it seems the world lens is focused on the Middle East.
But while the news is out of Syria, their are still reports of refugees escaping the country and looking for places to live.
The U.S. was quick to share their opinion on allowing Syrian refugees into the country. All political candidates for presidents where asked, and here's their opinion.
Then, governors of every state were asked what their opinions on allowing foreign refugees. The overwhelming majority said, "no way" to allowing refugees.
Meanwhile, Canada made the announcement today that they will be allowing Syrian refugees into the country.
Yes Refugees Argument
Refugees have nothing to do with ISIS, and barring them from help is only turning poor family away from seeking asylum. If our country was under attack and we needed to seek asylum, we would look to other countries to help us to. Also, barring these people from our country only creates more hate, we are a nation of immigrants.
No Refugees Argument
ISIS is a big threat, and by allowing these refugees to come into our country means that we are potentially letting ISIS into our nation. This could cause other potential threats to our nation, including bombings and shootings. Also, more people means more mouths to feed, and jobs taken away.
What is your opinion on allowing Syrian refugees into the U.S./ into other countries? Should this be a State or Federal issue?
