I can't say yes or no to that because some people don't even notice they have any ill intent in themselves. Brainwashing is a powerful weapon. Most don't see the destruction until it's already too late.
But if someone is in a good state of mind, has no wish or intention to harm others, and lives by the law, I can't think of why I would try to keep them away.
You are correct there were two questions, rolled into one. The united states is a country of immigrants. There are very few whose ancestors are 100 percent native to this country. People came here, lived in communities that were populated with people they could communicate with and thrived.what would this nation look like if the catholics were kept out. Or protestants. We fought the english, should we have barred their entry? Our constitution says all people have the right to worship how they please, say whats on their mind, be free and be happy. If a person goes thru the process of legally living here and are law abiding people, it does not matter, or shouldnt, what race, religion or nationality that person is.
As far as refugees are concerned, they are closely looked at before we let them come in. Other nations that are able are accepting people from syria. For humanitarian reasons, i believe we are obligated to do so too. This is a nation of plenty. As much as people want to believe that people from elsewhere are taking our jobs, they are not. We have farmers that beg for harvesters. No one wants to work on a farm anymore. Young people also are not interested in trades anymore. Its honorable work, but young people want nothing to do with it. Anyway, thats what i think.........
Of course not. Why it it, that only in the US, people have been indoctrinated with a belief that others have a right to what Americans have built and paid for? Most of the people immigrating illegally into the US are the lowest forms of life in their own country.
No one has an intrinsic right to immigrate to the USA.
The USA has a right to allow immigration into it's sovereign borders in a manner that is safe and beneficial to the country.
Everyone living as they please without ill intent is suspiciously vague, so no.
that's how human right's works
More than one question here...what is the real question Carla?
There needs to be some guidelines for moving to another country. I might like to move to the US (we'll see let's give it 4 years ha) and perhaps some people from the US might want to move to Canada. It seems very difficult to do...what should be a simple process.
Thousands of refugees is a different story.
Wrote u a reply it is below. Forgot to hit reply........again
Very interesting reading for sure. Still, innocent citizens of a decimated country, starving, sick and injured are of paramount concern. Even if we just allow women, children and elderly. But certainly turning away people in such need is unacceptable. These people are caught in the center of a three way battle. They have suffered at the hands of the islamic state, the rebel forces, their own government and russia. For ordinary innocent people, its not survivable.
Not all muslims believe other religions are evil. They live and let live. Christians historocally have persecuted those they believed as heretics. The muslims you speak of are radical and misinterprit their teachings for their agenda. As have christians and others. Generalizing is just wrong
Very true. I know of at least two Muslims at my mid-sized company, and I have not heard of a single beheading.
Nobody knows the first fact about rights. It's a code word for ... they don't say what it's for.
This is a question with many answers, as there are various kinds of "migrants" and "refugees", and questions of "human rights", welfare and morality, altruism and safety, as much as laws and justice, can raise very controversial reactions, all the more, when domestic poverty and homelessness are neglected.
The problem with mass migration is a loss of control of the crowds, no time for preventive measures, missing or false identities, conflicts among the migrants, the lack of helpers, of understanding, of equipments, space, organisational structures, facilities and means to deal rationally and efficiently with emergencies, and to "separate the wheat from the chaff".
Any decision will cause the sacrifice of defenseless people.

Sadly enough, since ancient times, criminals, terrorists and crooks abuse of the vulnerability of migrants and of our compassion for human misery:
Some of the most fertile grounds for criminal and terrorist organisations are the so-called "failed states":
An illustration by Chappatte:
The answer to your first question is YES. I believe ever human has inalienable rights, starting with the freedom to make her own decisions and do as she sees fit, so long as she doesn't hurt anyone else. This requires personal accountability though.. but that's another discussion. This is what "liberty" means to me.
The answer to your second question is NO. If everyone feels he has the right to immigrate to the US, then the US would have to let in an unlimited number of immigrants. Our country is a political and cultural entity. A willingness to adopt to our values and ideals should be a prerequisite to immigrating here.
Should the US help any people around the world that are suffering? The US is supposedly one of the wealthiest and most powerful countries in history. I would like to believe we are also among the most generous, but I don't know if that is true.
I did say legal immegration. And the cultural differences in this country is what makes it so rich. And i think that each of us has varying ideals and values. I am just so appalled at the idea of profiling on the basis of race and religion.
I misunderstood your second question then. I'm not against letting refugees into this country. I just want to make sure they will be peaceful once they arrive.
I completely agree that the blending of multiple cultures is one of the things that makes this country great. However, if someone cannot support the freedoms of speech, religion, or the press, they shouldn't be allowed in. As a litmus test I would show each a depiction of the prophet Muhammad. If the applicant freak outs in any way, they fail and are not allowed in.
:) you would have to believe that those would be reasons why someone would choose to be here.
Yes. Human intelligence is not true intelligence if it's anti-freedom.
Dont what you are talking about, or to whom you are speaking
Nooooo. It was the 400 lb. guy sitting on his bed.....
