If Trump Cares Enough About the Syrian People to Bomb Assad For His War Crimes, Why Won't Trump Admit More Syrian Refugees to the US? Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
Donald Trump, in one of his occasional ventures into accuracy, has called Assad a "monster" over the latter's latest war crime in using chemical weapons against children and other Syrian civilians, while the US bombed some of Assad's chemical weapons facilities.

This may give a few Syrians a brief respite from Assad's next atrocity, but no one claims that it will have any effect on his regime or be of any more than the most fleeting kind of benefit to the Syrian people. What would be more help would be to let a least a few Syrian refugees into the US so that they could find safety in this country from Assad's gas attacks.

But admitting refugees from Muslim countries (or any other non-European countries) is no more popular with the Trump administration than admitting Jewish refugees trying to escape from Hitler's gas chambers was with American officials during the Holocaust.

The Guardian reports that during President Barack Obama's last year in office, 2016, the US resettled 15,479 Syrian refugees (at least ten times that number would have been more in tune with our moral responsibility and values as a country).

In 2017, Trump's first year, the US took in only 3,024 Syrians, and this year so far only 11 have been admitted. That's 11 total, not 1,100.

It is fine to condemn Syria's inhuman dictator and hit him with a couple of what most media are reporting as weak and ineffective strikes. But a little humanity toward the people of Syria on the part of America's president would be welcome too.

However, instead of humanity, the Trump administration is offering an Orwellian excuse for not admitting Syrians, such as UN ambassador Nicky Haley's statement, also reported in the above article, that Syrian refugees do not want to come to America, but are anxious to go "home" to Syria ASAP.

Of course they want to go back to Syria, so they can be tortured and executed in Assad's prisons or gassed by his chemical weapons too. That is why so many Syrian refugees have drowned in the Mediterranean while trying to reach safety in Europe.
