@XxKuroSteelxX @nickshep7777 @Frialish I’m not ready to throw out reason and data because people chose to remain uninformed - so I’ll keep working with refugee rights
@XxKuroSteelxX @nickshep7777 @Frialish It's true - it's a shame some politicians are using this misattribution to stoke fears and rally bases.
@XxKuroSteelxX @nickshep7777 @Frialish But what attack did a refugee commit? That's the problem. The narrative is that they are dangerous - but the reality is on US soil they haven't been. We're at far more danger from mass shootings and US-born citizens than any refugee. We should be careful, but not conflate danger
@XxKuroSteelxX @nickshep7777 @Frialish And I agree - caution is vitally important. And we are cautious. In addition to multi-department background checks, we also run time sensitive health checks - so if refugees miss that window they have to start all over again.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVHdu4Br3Ds 
@XxKuroSteelxX @nickshep7777 @Frialish There are millions of refugees in camps around the world. The demand for resettlement is high. But when we cap our refugees in the USA at 50,000 (while Uganda has taken in over 1 million) we aren't being responsible on the global stage. We can do more. We should do more.
