Welcome Refugees! America Is Happy To Have You!

Memo to the refugees of the world:

You may have noticed a few grumpy Americans, complaining in a corner, scowling and yelling to themselves about how refugees are dirty, dangerous terrorists.

These people do not speak for the United States of America. They are a blip, a weird aberration, a loud but small minority.

The rest of us, the stable lovers of democracy and freedom in the USA, welcome refugees.

We know that most of our own ancestors were fleeing persecution, and came to the United States looking for a better life. Other ancestors escaped from persecution within our own country, and pledged to stand for a better future, with liberty and equality for all people.

welcome refugees bumper stickerWe welcome you to our shores, refugees.

Come, and we will do what we can to make sure that our government gives you the help you deserve. America is happy to add you to our multicultural community of human progress.

We’ll talk to those grumblers in the corner, too, and try to get them to calm down.

    They thank you, J Clifford. I hope we all can in the future. In the meantime there are other ways to help these very adventurous people, like getting their neighboring nations to give them refuge until they can go back home. It is, on the other hand, relieving Syria of about 2 million of its’ 12 million in population. The rest have chosen to stay home so far. I don’t mean to say that 2 million are coming to American, just that is about how many have left Syria so far.

    How many refugees have you welcomed into your own home?

    How many fingers does it take to count them?

    -No, they’re the smart ones.

      Everyone should read the Middle East Forum article at this link when considering welcoming refugees. The policy set by the President of the United States in rhetoric is that everything is safe. But in reality, what is he saying? http://www.meforum.org/5662/caliphate-accompli
