What are your thoughts on the refugee crisis in Syria? Wherever it is that you live, do you want your city/state/country to take in refugees? Why or why not?
That's a hard one. Part of me says "take them in, for charity's sake, to help the innocents and get them out of the line of fire." The other part is more along the lines of no, for various reasons--can terrorists sneak in (although I've heard the process would be quite tedious, nothing's too much for the truly fanatical), can we afford it, do we have the facilities to aid? And doesn't charity begin at home? I can tell you that for many years, I was underemployed and couldn't get much in the line of medical care. We resented in many ways that illegals could get better, cheaper (free) care than me, a born and bred citizen who paid her taxes when working. Shouldn't we care for our own homeless and destitute before flinging the doors wide?
It boils down to I have no idea, honestly. Think I'm leaning towards No, but I'm trying to keep an open mind.
