Don't put my faith at question because I don't want to bring Syrian refugees here to the United States.  That is correct, I said it, I do not want to bring Syrian refugees here.  That does not mean that I don't want the USA to help them.  Goodness gracious you can help someone without bringing them into your home putting you and your family at risk.  There is a boatload of country in the middle east.  The USA can still offer monetary and manpower support for these folks.  Surely there is somewhere in the vastness of the middle east where they would be at less risk than where they are now.    You can only bring in so many any way.  Who gets to come who has to stay in harms way.  Wouldn't it make more sense to try and help possibly more.  Do I think there could be a terrorist among the refugees?  Well certainly there could be.  Is that my biggest concern for not bringing them here? No.  We have enough people here in need of help, HERE; born here and not alike.  Would I close the door?  Yes.  Oh boo hoo if the door would have been closed a bazillion years ago to the US then I might never have been...  I'd have been, just somewhere else and that's not necessarily a bad thing. My reason for not wanting to bring others in need here has nothing to do with race or religion.  I just think enough is enough.
