Liberals want us to rescue refugees

The videos are reminiscent of scenes from the television series, "The Walking Dead." Refugees from the Middle East are shown streaming across Turkey and shambling into Christendom in what can only be described as an invasion. Boats dangerously overloaded with refugees are escaping the horrendous conditions that their own civilization inevitably creates. They risk death to cross the Mediterranean to land in Italy. And the civilized West is expected to bear every cost. President Barack Obama magnanimously announced that he would welcome 10,000 refugees into the United States this year, but none at his house. Hillary Clinton said that the number should be 65,000. Secretary of State John Kerry later said that we would accept 85,000 next year and 100,000 in 2017. I wonder where this generosity was when ISIS was slaughtering Christians and Yazidis in Iraq. They could have used asylum and were certainly more deserving/Michael Costello, Lewiston Tribune.
