Not Just "Terror" Claims: Trump Says Syrian Refugees Would Hurt "Quality of Life". Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
Donald Trump has let the cat out of the the bag about where he stands on Syrian Refugees. The Guardian reports that his opposition to them is not just based on alleged "terror" concerns (over people who are fleeing from terror perpetrated by the twin horrors of ISIS and the Assad dictatorship, backed by Russia's own dictator, Vladimir Putin, whom Trump has had a least a few good things to say about).

In addition to labeling Syrian refugees (once again) as potential terrorists, Trump is now saying that they would affect America's "quality of life",

Here is the exact quote from Trump, speaking about Syrian refugees at a rally in Toledo, Ohio, as reported in The Guardian on September 21:

"Not only the danger of it all-this isn't only a matter of terrorism, but alswo a matter of quality of life. We want to make sure we're only admitting those into our country who support our values and-love - and I mean love - our people."

See:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...ombing-attacks

What, exactly, does Trump mean when he doubts that Syrian refugees would be good for for America's "quality of life", that they might not support "or values" or "love our people"?

Is there something "un-American" about wanting to flee from war, persecution and dictatorship, and from the horrors of ISIS fanaticism which Trump, on other occasions, has described as graphically and accurately as anyone else (in support of his advocacy of using torture).

Does wanting to settle in a country of freedom and democracy, one which was founded on the principle of refuge from tyranny and political or religious persecution, mean a rejection of "American values", or lack of love for the American people?

Or is Trump's statement a not so veiled claim that people from parts of the world outside Europe, and of non-white skin color or non-Judeo-Christian faith, are incompatible with America's "quality of life"

Is Trump identifying America's "quality of life with the notorious "Nordics-only" national origins immigration quotas of the 1924 Johnson-Reed Immigration Act which favored Northern Europeans and excluded Jewish, Italian, Polish, Hungarian and, "coincidentally" all Middle Eastern immigrants?

Perhaps a further explanation from Trump about what he means when he says that Syrian refugees endanger America's "quality of life" would be in order.

Trump might also wish to share with us where he got his preposterous idea that Hillary Clinton wants to bring in "620,000" refugees in her first term - a figure which, according to The Guardian's above article, has "been proven false by independent fact checkers."
