"We risk more in not accepting Syrian refugees into the US"
In the past several months, four million Syrians have poured into Europe and surrounding countries, fleeing conflict back home. Now, a debate is raging in the U.S. about whether we should accept more refugees than the 10,000 President Obama has promised to resettle. Opponents of resettlement point to concerns that if we accept more refugees, the U.S. could unwittingly be putting itself at risk by allowing potential extremists into the country. In light of these concerns, it is of vital importance that we remember that the national security risks in not accepting refugees far outweigh the risks of welcoming them into the country.
