Interesting that one of the first actions taken by France is to close their border. We couldn't do that in an emergence or for any other reason at this time. Ridiculous when you think about it.

The Obama administration is preparing to announce a plan to admit more refugees over the next two years, but at this point the numbers being proposed are too small to relieve the crisis streaming out of Syria.

From 70,000 this year to 85,000 next year and 100,000 in fiscal 2017

President Obama spoke about the refugee crisis Tuesday at the White House alongside the king of Spain. Obama said it was important for the U.S. to “take our share” of Syrian refugees and reinforced his pledge to allow 10,000 more into the country than previously planned in 2016.

The White House, the most senior national security officials will discuss raising the limit on the number of refugees from around the world allowed to enter the United States from 70,000 this year to 85,000 next year and 100,000 in fiscal 2017,

You're right, MSNBC isn't keeping me informed, literally. My TV only has Fox and Newsmax.

The only candidate who will might see an increase in support because of this tragedy is Dr. Ben Carson. He is the one that spoke against Muslims. Clown Trump was too busy attacking Mexicans.

Clown Trump chose the wrong group to attack. Sorry Trump fans, Trump won't "gain" anything from this tragedy.

In a way the US did that by shutting down ALL commercial air traffic after 9-11.

Gotta love the clueless folks than cannot differentiate between ILLEGAL and LEGAL immigration. We don't have "hundreds of thousands" of people hopping on planes and flying into the US illegally. Last time I checked, that ain't happening too often. Meanwhile, the actual border is being breached hundreds of times a day by who the hell knows.

Jesus!

Bush did that long ago.

I'd think 'closed' means just that, nobody gets in or out.
