The president has committed to taking in only 10 thousand refugees. That is a disgusting low figure and yet the GOP/tea-party fools think that is too many. To listen to the likes of Trump, all refugees and immigrants are just criminals looking for freebies and need to be deported and not allowed to even enter. When did our country become so selfish and downright nasty about the needs of others?
What will happen when Americans need help? Don’t think that can happen? In a way the first refugees from climate change is happening in Alaska as a small village is being slowly devoured by the encroaching water levels that are raising. Sure it will be just to another area of Alaska, but what happens when the oceans rise as they say and the fires in the west can not be stopped? What if we are attacked like Syria or Iraq or Iran? Who would take us in?
We need to help others and not just because we may need help someday, but because its the right thing to do. I hope with all that makes me – me, that never do we have to face what these poor people are facing. In the end do we not as human beings need to help our fellow human beings? Is there a way to stop this from happening? How can we stop these countries from killing their own people and destroying their cities all in the name of religion and/or greed? Of course they would rather have never had to flee for their lives- they would rather their homes had not been destroyed and they would all wish that they didn’t have to flee.
In the end there is not good answers and we can only try each and everyone of us to do what we can to help.
