Syrian Refugees, Look at it from our Perspective. The Native Americans trusted us: We learned Never to trust immigrants

Dear Syrian Refugees: Sorry, but Look at it from our Perspective

The Native Americans trusted us: We learned not to trust immigrants.

In 1938, 70% of university students in the USA refused Jews from central Europe to immigrate.

They were transferred to Israel.

Thank you for your interest in fleeing to [STATE]! As you are aware, our state is a rainbow of humanity, positively bursting with opportunities for the weary who wash up on our welcoming shores.

Truly, the promise of America is made manifest nowhere as clearly as [STATE]!

Dear Syrian refugees:

We regret to inform you that we will be unable to accept your desperate gamble for safety and freedom at this time.

We can imagine your disappointment at this news. But before you start getting all bent out of shape, look at it from our perspective.

The United States was founded upon one principle above all others: freedom and justice for all.

However, that’s not a principle we’re particularly interested in discussing in this letter, for reasons that aren’t worth getting into here.

Another important principle of the American way of life is that you can’t trust anyone.

Indeed, our nation’s first inhabitants—Native Americans—trusted our own ancestors to be kind and peaceable immigrants. Just look how that turned out.

Ever since then, the American people have been very cautious about who we allow to take part in the profound and revolutionary idea that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

Obviously, you can’t just let anyone in on that kind of deal.

We know you’re not a terrorist. But what if you were?

Some of you guys are, you know. The last thing we want in America are young, dangerous, mentally unstable men who are liable to start shooting at any moment. Horrible thought.

Put yourself in our position. What if it was your family that was potentially in danger, forced to keep checking over your back, never knowing if you were truly safe?

What if it was you who could never look your child in the face without knowing whether or not it was the last time?

Can you imagine that kind of life?

Surely, you would do everything in your power to keep your family away from such horrors.

So you can understand why we are denying your request to live in [STATE]. The risk is just too high.

 

Again, thank you for your interest in fleeing wanton violence to [STATE].

We regret that we were unable to accept your bid for a better future at this time, but we assume you can understand our position and how in these troubled times, the only safe thing to do is send the tired, poor and huddled masses yearning to breathe free back to where they came from.

We’re sure that if our situations were reversed, you would do the same thing.

Note: The republican candidates might admit Christian Syrian refugees, in good standing. Like the policy in Poland, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia…
