Dear Editor,

Reasonable, compassionate people, and many experts who work with refugees, agree that victims of the Islamic Caliphate, perpetrated by Islamists in the Middle East, need help.

However, the incidents in Paris on November 13, 2015, clearly demonstrate the inherent dangers of allowing compassion to override prudence. It’s now apparent, even to the most zealous proponents of refugee resettlements, that Islamic jihadists are concealing themselves among those refugees.

Consequently, any “help” should come in the form of temporary assistance, and a secure living environment in their native countries, or in a neighboring country, until they are able to return safely to their homes.

Current efforts to vet refugees from the Middle East are woefully inadequate and completely ineffective.

Experts from the FBI and NSA say there is simply no reliable way to accomplish that task successfully. As a result, some of those refugees represent a clear and present danger to us and our communities.

Exactly keep them in their native countries. The Boston Bombers were brought here as children by asylum in which you have to meet the definition of a refugee to get and look what happened there.

Refugees do not get to pick which country they are settled in. The UN decides.

9:21 The UN has no real jurisdiction or authority other than what is conceded to them.

China, Saudia Arabia, Monaco, Japan, Botswana, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, India, Cuba, Thailand, Papua New Guinea, and Mongolia are all UN members too.

How many "refugees" have they assigned to those countries, to name just a few?
