About those refugees

I am ashamed to be living in a state whose governor deemed now to be the appropriate time for political grandstanding. Bruce Rauner’s display of hostility and cowardice is exactly what the Paris terrorists were hoping to achieve.

  1. The governor of Washington State, who said his state would welcome all refugees, pointed out that it is incredibly hard to come to the US on a refugee visa due to the stringent background checks the FBI and ICE subject each applicant to. It’d be a lot easier for someone with, say, a French passport (and several of the terrorists were/are French citizens) to enter the US on a tourist visa. And I don’t see any states talking about banning tourists. :p
