Re: “Matt Dunne Castigates Phil Scott Over Syrian Refugee Comments

Here! Here! So glad to see candidates standing up and blasting this crazy rhetoric. Seriously the Government already vets refugees from areas of concern. This is a HUMANITARIAN CRISIS and we cannot stand by and should not stand by while individuals are suffering because of a few extremists. Educate yourselves.

Here's the information from the White House: https://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2015/11/17/how-were-welcoming-syrian-refugees

Now take a look at how many refugees have been arrested on domestic terrorism charges since 9/11: http://fusion.net/story/234172/syrian-refugee-chart-explains-everything/

And finally consider that those involved in the French attack were predominately French and Belgian.

We are being cautious enough -- these poor people are fleeing war, bombings, and horrific treatment. How dare we as a nation founded on immigration (my own Grandparents came here from Poland) turn people away and risk repeating some of our most shameful history.

Thank you Matt Dunne for speaking out!
