Should we let refugees in the United States?
Dear Future Presidents,
In March of 2011, the people of Syria started fleeing because of terror. In April 2013, the United States joined the fight in Syria spending over $70 million for a program. We have a lot of people in our country that we can’t take care of. We need to limit the amount of refugees we allow in our country because we don’t have the resources like money, and we won’t be able to tell the difference between refugees and Isis.
The biggest fear may be the fact that if we do allow more refugees to come into our country is how would we tell the difference between a refugee and a member of Isis. “They say it would be hard to spot enemies hidden among the refugees.”
If we don’t allow them into the refugees into the country, they may try to get into the country anyways which means we’ll have to make improvements on our borders. “ Children from the northern tier of Central America and from Mexico are flooding into the United States — 47,017 from Oct. 1, 2013, to May 31, the Department of Homeland Security says — cramming Border Patrol stations and forcing U.S. officials to set up temporary facilities for the children at military bases in Texas, Oklahoma and California.”
One big problem about helping the refugees is how will we able to help them if we can’t even help our own citizens. Cause we would have to give them free housing and jobs we can’t even give our citizens. “The agreement came a day before the deadline when Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said the Treasury would reach the current $16.7 trillion debt limit. After that, it could no longer borrow to pay the country's bills.”
We need to limit the amount of refugees we allow into the country because we won’t be able to tell the difference between refugees and Isis, and because we are still in debt and can’t afford to supply the refugees with houses and jobs if we can’t do the same for the citizen.
