Should Colorado Accept Syrian Refugees? (POLL)
Despite my attempts to remain uninformed and naively unaware of what's happening in the world, I learned today that the governor of Colorado has announced the state will accept Syrian refugees. Does this cause you concern?
The Denver Post is reporting that Governor John Hickenlooper will not follow a number of American governors who have stated they will not accept refugees in response to the attacks in Paris last week.
The White House has estimated 10,000 that will relocated to the United States before 2017.
On Monday, governors in 24 states said they will block refugees: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.
After watching the horrifying attacks in Paris last week, many people understandably are concerned about this influx of refugees causing a security problem. There are many others who are concerned about the humanitarian issues affecting families and children if they aren't accepted.
What say you?
