Keep them out, the Tsarnaev Boston bomber brothers were refugees, we all know how that turned out.

Look folks, I'm not saying that the Repub candidates are reminding us of Reagan, Ike and Teddy R, but if Hillary gets elected, and we end up with possibly 16 straight years of Democratic rule, this country will never recover. Your kids and grandkids will never know what it feels like to live in a great America.
Wtf? You mean like the wonderfully great America we had 2006--08? Economy in tatters, Wall Street gone wild, two quagmire wars, a country divided? And btw, for the record, America wasn't so great for everyone under Reagan.

Your grandkids will be paying off China for the Iraq War for decades. Sometimes it really feels like Americans are in total denial and want to live in a 1950s movie that simply has not existed since 1950.

LOL..we are still paying off debt from WWI

The debt just got rolled over. We never actually paid it off..just kept buying Treasuries to pay off the old Treasuries. Traded one IOU for another.

I'm more afraid of a mentally disturbed American who's been to a gun show than I am of an immigrant with a pressure cooker.

The issue here is keeping tabs on who we let in the country. And you're right, we are far, far away from the 1950's, at least what I read about them as I wasn't around then. But I don't recall as many nuts in the world doing things like 9/11's and Paris during the 1950's. We must be smart and not naive with the "we love everybody...come on in!" mentality that many of our esteemed leaders are spouting these days. Talk about naive 1950's style behavior.....

And were watched by the FBI.
And we were warned by Russia about big brother's activities.

Unnecessary resources utilized, which in the end did not matter.

Because you cannot find them guilty by association.
You have to wait for a crime. Sadly though their crimes are acts of terror

It will be interesting if President Obama will risk his parties shot at the presidency if this is a really unpopular issue. My guess is that timing works against the refugees.
