At his final visit to the U.N., President Barack Obama extolled the benefits and need for countries, especially the U.S., to welcome more refugees, especially for the U.S. to take even more Syrian refugees. Hillary Clinton proposed an even larger number in the past.
Almost all of us are descendants of immigrants and support rational immigration of vetted people who wish to assimilate and become loyal Americans.
However, Obama made no mention of the 858 illegals (or non-documented aliens) who were criminals and scheduled for deportation but, due to another mess up by this administration, were all given full citizenship and released. Some are claiming the number is as high as 1,800 of such illegals. Yes, these true illegal criminals can vote in November, just like you.
There has been considerable criticism of Donald Trump’s son Donald Jr. using Skittles as a metaphor for some being unique out of many. I would have likened it to Russian roulette. Why aren’t Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Iraq — all rich and predominately Muslim — not taking them? After all, Obama is so influential in the Muslim world, or so the press implies.

Why should Western countries, which are predominantly Christian, take millions of refugees, yet those Muslim countries won’t take them (or any Christians at all)?
If you were not aware of these aliens who were to be deported becoming voting citizens, I did not see it in the local papers either.
