Hi I am a representative of Open Arms Nebraska; a new organization devoted to helping reverse the Governor of Nebraska's decision on banning Syrian refugees. I urge you all to contemplate signing this to help thousands of refugees find homes in the State of Nebraska, which is well equipped to do so. The link is here:

Thanks, OANE

I think he made a sound decision, given the new threat concerns over refugees from the Middle East. WE already know some of the Paris Terrorists came in with the program, and we still don't know how many of them. ISIL has already states that we are on their target list, and all the refugee program does now is expedite their entry into the United States. Just read in the News tonight, that some Syrians with false Passports have been arrested coming through Columbia, I believe it said.

I urge anyone considering allowing Middle East refugees into the Country, at this time, to rethink their position. Don't believe the crap coming out of the White House, about all the background checks being done on these people. Those "Checks" didn't do much for Paris. And none of those people in Washington are going to be living around them either. Maybe when they have a system that allows a thorough check on these people, anot a 15 minute one, we can talks about them.

I will only listen to people that want refugees over here when they can present a good reason to bring them here based on facts, logic, and need. I will not listen to any touchy feely reason that only makes a few misinformed leftist feel better about themselves because of their low self esteem.



Vetting is impossible, so we will be bringing criminals and terrorists into our neighbor hoods. The government officials that say they will be well vetted are liars..

Oane, kudos to you and your organization.

As much as I generally dislike Andrew Cuomo, NY's governor, he's refused to jump on the anti-refugee bandwagon, so my state will do what it's been doing since its founding as a Dutch colony in the early 17th century: welcoming people who want to start a new life in America.

That's good. If they have to come here, New York is a good place for them. ISIL already has said it wants a whack at Times Square. Should be good for the Tourist business also. Are you taking in a few?

Its not going to make much difference if Cuomo wants it or don't, since Congress will be the one deciding what he can or can not do. As a last resort, Citizens need to urge them to remove funding for this Circus.

Say "NO" loudly.

Go hide in your storm cellar, pull your blankies over your head, and cower in the dark waiting for some foreign bogeyman to come get ya. You and "I'll make America Strong Again" Trump.

This is a traditional leftist shaming technic that only makes the person that says it feel better. All other people reading will understand that they have ran out of common sense arguments to use.

The next level will be to start calling every one that disagrees a racist. This is just another way of making the accuser feel better and more superior.

It doesn't work.

Do you lock your doors at home? If you do, it is time to take those locks off because YOU are hiding too.
