Refugee Crisis By: Alyssa W.

I believe that the United States should let the refugees in slowly. I think this because there are still U.S. citizens that are in need. If we let the refugees in all at once the country wouldn’t have resources to live. For example, housing, jobs, and food. In the article, PRO/CON: Should U.S. stop Syrian refugees from coming in? President Obama says that he will take only 10,000 refugees in the United States.There are 4.3 million Syrian refugees in Jordan. Compare 4.3 million to 10,000 people. I think it is unfair that there are so many refugees in Jordan but Obama let only 10,000 people in. Plus, the United States is way bigger than Jordan.

Jordan is so much smaller than the USA.

In the same article, it says people are worried that the Syrian refugees are trying to sneak in fighters. Barack Obama said there is no need to worry. He will check them very careful by screening them. If the screening does work we can easily let more of them in. Then we will know that they are safe and not fighters.

Luis Gutierrez, the lawmaker in Illinois was quoted in the article, Syrians wanting to live in the U.S. compared to Jews or World War II. He felt bad that the United States refused to let in the Jews. He also said that the United States with regret not letting in the Syrians. I agree with him. I think that we will regret not letting the Syrians in. Most of them are women and children. They don’t have anywhere to go and they need a home. Imagine if you were in that position. You are innocent and the other countries think you are a fighter. I think that we should let Syrian refugees into our country because it is unfair that the United States has wrong opinion about them.

This is an example of some of the women and children refugees that are from Syria.

We should let them in slowly so that the we can make sure that most United State citizens have resources to live.
