Should the US Profile Syrian Refugees?
Short answer: Yes. Syrian refugees cannot be vetted with 100% certainty, they shouldn't be brought to the US in the first place!
Look at these pictures, this is what Syria looks like. Now do you see any indication that a country in such ruin has the ability to store information, keep records (medical, criminal etc) of any kind?
Do you think you could pick the phone up, send an email or a text message requesting detailed information on an individual you're been tasked to vet? Of course not, yet the obama administration and democrats want refugees brought to the US, claiming they can conduct the necessary background check even though the FBI and other agencies say otherwise. Meanwhile the same democrats are denouncing Trump's plan of extreme vetting and a muslim ban/registry. Frankly, I can't see how the Trump admin will be able to vet these people because Syria is in ruins. There are no files, records, databases or offices intact to answer inquiries.
As for the registry, it's called the immigration system... national security. We have a right to know who is coming into the US and where they are, especially when they are coming from a war torn region where 13% of the refugees approve of ISIS!
In regards to Trump suggesting a muslim ban, sorry to tell you liberals out there but YES HE CAN! Btw where the hell were any of you when Pres Carter instituted one?!
“…Fourth, the Secretary of Treasury [State] and the Attorney General will invalidate all visas issued to Iranian citizens for future entry into the United States, effective today. We will not reissue visas, nor will we issue new visas, except for compelling and proven humanitarian reasons or where the national interest of our own country requires. This directive will be interpreted very strictly…”
It's quite shameful how you all turn a blind eye when one of your own does something a republican considers doing. The President has the power to refuse "the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States" under 8 US Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens:
“…(f) Suspension of Entry or Imposition of Restrictions by President
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline.”
All middle eastern refugees coming from Europe and elsewhere should be denied. Establishing safe zones under the protection of the UN is the only option, since that really is their purpose. Those nations, esp Arab nations, who don't like that solution, you can always send them to the many ghost cities/ towns in China! There is no way in hell America should take these people in.
