The article, “President Obama directs administration to accept at least 10,000 Syrian refugees in the next fiscal year,” written by Juliet Eilperin on September 10th, which talks about exactly what the title states. Eilperin argues that this decision made by the Obama Administration was an ill prepared solution to a predictable problem. Because this solution was made up with out proper preparation it comes with some faults that Eilperin and I both agree is not worth it. Another concern made by the American people is the fact that these refugees are coming from a hot bed of terrorist territory.

So why should the U.S. let refugees when it is not absolutely necessary when they already have somewhere else that they can have refuge? This just seems like the Obama Administration is making a very ignorant decision. Then the Obama Administration is going to give these refugees Medicaid?

This tax money could be going to programs that would actually benefit the United States society and their citizens with programs like education, or to FEMA because a type 4 hurricane is about to hit the U.S. coast. I am fine with the work permit as long as it is jobs that is
