Immigrants: Resistance is Futile

IMG_0753To be clear, there is no “American responsibility” to take in any refugee. IsĀ it good to help others in need? Without a doubt. I believe that as a Union founded on Christian values (a discussion for another day) that we should give it consideration as to what we can do; however, we must do so by weighing the risks that threaten our national security. And should the American people decide to continue accepting not only refugees, but all and any immigrants, we should 1) expect that they fully assimilate into American culture, which does not mean give up their ethnic identity, and 2) truly accept them when, not if, they become citizens through naturalization. President Theodore Roosevelt said it well, and do so without exclusivity or disdain.
