The refugees are fleeing from their homes on foot with infants and children and overloading themselves into unseaworthy boats to escape the horrors of what was their home. They pay exorbitant fees to do this. It's either that, or stay behind and be murdered, tortured, and raped by the Syrian army, or by ISIS, or by one of the other Islamic extremists cults. Republicans AND Democrats need to immediately implement an expedited vetting process to ensure our security, AND rescue these and all other refugees no matter where they come from or what church they go to. We are Americans. We need to act like Americans. Shameless Republicans already have let it be known what they think of immigrants. We don't need Democrats piling on the Republican paranoia band-wagon and making the obvious xenophobia worse than it already is. This is a crisis. We need to take the high road and confront it, and deal with it, and deal with it NOW.
