Why We Need to Help
There is a very controversial subject, should the United States allow immigrants and or refugees into our country 's borders to live here permanently? There is a difference between the two groups of people, one wants the chance for different opportunities in another country and the other is forced out of their homes by tragedy. As long as immigrants legally come here, they should be allowed to live in our borders. Current refugees are innocent people, but catastrophe forced them to flee their country from the horror ISIS is doing. The United States is a country that helps and accepts all people, no matter race, ethnicity, or religion and our country 's morals would be to help the innocent people fleeing from terrorists

That the United States has its own problems and should not take on another 's. After doing research for this assignment, it altered my perspective. The refugees desperately need our help. A refugee is “a person who flees for refuge or safety, especially to a foreign country, as in time of political upheaval, war, etc” (Dictionary.com 1). Most of today’s refugees are trying to escape the terrorism from ISIS. ISIS is short for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, “the extreme death cult” was formed in Iraq in 2013, shortly after the war in Afghanistan. Although the members are Muslim, “ISIS has fewer than 40,000 members. There are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world. More than 3 million Muslims live in America. Most Muslims around the world reject ISIS. In fact, many of them are fighting against ISIS” (“The truth about Isis” pg 4-8). ISIS has done “143 attacks in 29 countries have killed 2,043 [people]” (“ISIS Goes Global”) including beheading innocent people, drowning an infant, killing many in a club in Paris and, any Muslim who does not follow Islamic rules. Despite all of the terrorist attacks in Paris, France is continuing to allow the refugees into their country. If countries turn against the refugees, they may feel betrayed by their fellow man and join ISIS, contributing to their growing numbers (Davies, Madeleine “A loss of nerve: why isn 't the West doing more …show more content…
First, you are able to help those who are in desperate need and were forced to leave their homes. There can be brilliant people from their country and contribute to the new country they will be apart of. For example, Albert Einstein, he was a Jewish refugee escaping from Nazis during the second World War. He contributed to Physics and some of the basic understanding of the universe and its energy (“Immigration to the United States”). If the United States never allowed Einstein in, he and many others, would of been killed and to this day we might not of had the opportunity to understand the basics of the earth. If a country accepts the refugees from the devastation that they are facing (excluding natural disasters) the country is probably at war with the other Nation, and some of the refugees would want to be soldiers, fighting against the terrorism, and hopefully safely returning to their

    Because the United States senators are not allowing refuges to enter their states, they are in fact helping groups like Isis, as the refugees will start to believe that their only hope for survival is to join with Isis (Cambin, Kingsley and Nardelli). That being said, by not accepting the refugees there will be serious problems on both sides. The refugees might end up staying in war torn countries and join potential terrorist groups, which will bring the problems with terrorism up in the United States and European Union. Even if the U.S and E.U agree to allow the refugees to come over to their countries many will dies trying as states by BBC, [Everyone is dying] because of how overcrowded it gets (Migrant…

    Shunning refugees is not only an insult to U.S. values, it is an indirect acceptance of ISIS’ warped viewpoints. ISIS has denounced refugees fleeing to the West, warning them that they would not be welcome in the U.S. and Europe. Therefore, by accepting refugees, America can defeat ISIS’ propaganda. Additionally, it has been revealed to be unlikely that a Syrian refugee will prove to be a terrorist. Refugees are subject to the strictest security checks of any group seeking entry to the United States.…

    As a result of their civil war, millions of Syrians are left in war torn settings and in desperate need of a safe place to reside. Despite this information, many people regard as true the single story that Syrian refugees seeking to enter the U.S. are liable to have ties with terror groups such as Islamic State. Many Americans claim that Syrian refugees have the ability to carry out terrorist actions if granted entrance into the country, while others claim that they are only here to have a better life in order to provide for themselves and their families. Syrian refugees should be allowed into the United States because rejecting people admission…

    The illegal aliens, however, left Syria to get away from all the terrorism. They would not endanger the lives of Americans, because that would make them no better than their dictators. If the illegal aliens flee their country to seek refuge in America, The Immigration Center will be a place where all illegal immigrants can stay and learn how to become an American resident or how to live in the American society. Americans will complain that the illegal aliens are stealing job opportunities that unemployed Americans could have. Most Americans, however, do not want some jobs.…

    Many people from those countries are seeking refuge here in the US and some citizens of the US are against letting those refugees in, because of conspiracy threat. As many of these people in this poll might say, ‘Better safe, than sorry’. As a result of all this hysteria, the House of Representatives proposed H.R. 4038 (Anti-Refugee Legislation) after the Paris attack to halt Syrian Refugee from coming to the US. The purpose of H.R.…

    government had accepted about 1,500 Syrian refugees. The U.S. government has its reasons to why they are not allowing the refugees to stay and to come seek refuge here in America and they are reasonable. One major reason why we are not allowing them in the U.S. is because our government fears that it will threaten our security. Which makes a lot of sense because we don’t know who exactly these people are, whether or not if they are affiliated with a terrorist group, or if they are just regular people of Syria. It’s tough to come to a conclusion.…

    The Holocaust offers a significant warning on the current policy on immigration; that is, most refugees are merely people who look for safety and people should forsake their aloofness to the victims. Some people may be frightened of ISIS soldiers entering the United States as refugees, but that is, in fact, not an efficient way for them to invade America because “slipping in a European recruit and exploiting the visa waiver gap in U.S. security would probably be a smarter use of terrorist assets.” (Reilly, Elizabeth). In the eyes of foreigners, United States is a cosmopolitan policeman, and why would a policeman not save lives? The appropriate universalization of the Holocaust helps to expose the weakness on…

    In foreign policy, the U.S. wants to start in intervention against terrorists for attacking their country. He would have to ask permission from Congress and had sixty days to leave out of war affairs. Despite that, the President has ignored the War Powers Act,which results Congress to create two ideas to punish the President. They may either blame the President after he has lost the war and they can throw him out of office,or they can take the credit from him for winning the conflict. There are concerns when dealing with the policy because it impacts on other people of their problems.…
