Should the U.S. take in more refugees or fewer?

The global refugee crisis has worsened in recent years, with an estimated 68.5 million people displaced due to conflict or persecution. Anti-immigration hardliners argue asylum seekers should be denied entry into the U.S. until all Americans are taken care of. Some worry terrorists and gang members could sneak in among the refugees. But others say America is strong and wealthy enough to take in those fleeing terror, and we have a moral responsibility to do so. Wha do you think?

According to the United Nations, 68.5 million people have been forcibly displaced due to violent conflict or persecution. Despite that fact, the refugee crisis is at the highest its been since WWII, with more countries are turning away asylum seekers—including the United States.

United States immigration agents are seizing children from parents at the southern border. Italy’s new populist coalition is forcing refugees to turn elsewhere. An anti-migrant backlash now threatens to fracture Germany’s government. And through it all, the world’s population of displaced people keeps rising.

Many feel the U.S. should be making a better effort to take in refugees. Those seeking asylum in the U.S have valid security concerns, and there's little evidence that refugees are any more dangerous than any other group. There's a strict process to get into the United States and claiming it is unsafe to admit more refugees is just false.

But immigration hardlines insist refugees pose a security concern. Members of MS-13 or ISIS could sneak into the country as refugees, and conservatives feel the risk of an attack on Americans is not worth taking on charity cases. Besides, the resources that would go to helping refugees resettle here could be spent on Americans who are suffering instead.
