Syrian refugees: Look at the photos on the news broadcasts from Europe. Most of the refugees are young men of military age. They are not family units. They say they are fleeing ISIS. What kind of man would leave his mother, sisters to what ISIS soldiers do to women? What kind of man would leave his father, younger brothers to what ISIS would do, like beheadings? Assad is fighting ISIS. Why have these young Syrian men not joined with Assad to fight ISIS, to help protect their families? Seems they just want to get to wealthy European countries — Germany, Sweden and the U.K. — as they think life will be easier in a new country. They expect Hungary, Croatia and Serbia to provide for them, as they move on to more wealthy countries. Those countries are too poor to house them. Now the U.S. wants to take many of them. I say no, as we have enough immigrants to care for that we have not had time to properly assimilate. We are the world’s largest debtor nation. We cannot afford any more at this time.
