A big difference from the story of your family is that no one was worried your father might be a terrorist whose real motivation was to kill Americans and overthrow the American government. Your father did not require costly vetting. Your father was interested in adapting to American values: not so with many of the Syrian refugees.

Instead of endangering our country and setting up a clash of cultures on our own soil the failed experiment in Europe tells us should be avoided, would it not be better for us to help the refugees closer to their native lands so they can more easily return to rebuild their homes when the war is over?
