"A few other heart-warming humanitarian stories:
-- Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, or "the Blind Sheik," imprisoned for life in the U.S. for his participation in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing: Asylee.
-- Ramzi Yousef, ringleader of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing: Asylee.
-- Egyptian Hesham Mohamed Hadayet, who shot up the El Al ticket counter at the Los Angeles airport, killing two: Refugee.
And the list goes on ...
Even the refugees who don't specifically come here to murder Americans aren't fleeing persecution. They're fleeing countries with less generous welfare policies than we have in the West. Which won't exist anymore, if we don't turn off the spigot from the Third World.
For at least half a century, the U.S. has taken in the vast majority of the world's refugees. Isn't it somebody else's turn, now?
How about Mexico take in a few "refugees"? Why not El Salvador or Honduras? Could the pope have a word with his co-religionists about the suffering in Syria? How about Vatican City? Talk about the perfect place to build some low-income housing projects!
Maybe it's time the world gets used to life without the United States. If our current immigration policies aren't stopped, this country will soon be nothing more than another failed Latin American state.
Speaking of which, I note that our allies, Japan and Israel, aren't taking in any Syrian refugees. Japan is pretty far away, but Israel is even closer to Syria than Sweden is! Evidently, Japan and Israel aren't as gung-ho about destroying themselves as our European friends are. Donald Trump's soaring popularity suggests that America may not be ready to commit suicide yet, either."
