house Bill H. Res. 444

Should the House Reaffirm America’s Commitment to the Safety of Refugees?

Argument in favor

Refugees and displaced persons are among the most vulnerable populations in the world, and they deserve the protection of governments who can afford to take them. Expressing the House’s support for refugees and the refugee resettlement program would help achieve this goal.

A resolution confirming Congressional commitment to honoring traditional American values would normally not be needed- but unfortunately we are at a point where it is. A resolution does nothing more than provide a reminder of who we are and what we stand for. It is also a commitment by our Congressional House to defend those immigrants who are otherwise defenseless against race based policies that demonize and dehumanize them, and that suffer the gross mistreatment from those afraid of losing white supremacist/nationalist entitlement in a more diverse society.

We are the United States of America. We ARE a nation of immigrants. We stand for freedom, liberty and equality. We DO NOT believe in racial superiority and concentration camps, for adults or children. The evils of the wannabe dictator in the office of the President and his morally bankrupt administration and supporters in the GOP must pay the price for their crimes. It is time for impeachment and then trials.

Argument opposed

This toothless resolution wouldn’t change current administration policy on the topic of refugee admissions. If the House is serious about this issue, it should pass actual legislation, not a non-binding resolution. It’s also worth considering if it’s advisable for the U.S. to admit more refugees in the light of the security risks they might pose.

This another waste of time refugees are protected by the constitution already. How about they Pledge to protect the more then 70,000 Americans that are killed by drugs rape and murder committed by the illegal persons coming over the border. They need to also need to allow a citizen oversight committee to investigate their actions and deeds and allow that same committee the ability to impeach or refer the to the justice department for further investigation and Immediate removal from office until the completion of their investigation. This must be done to save our corrupt government... sad but true! Look our Chuck S .

    Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

    We supposedly support the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, where you came from or your race or religion is not a reason to invalidate those statements. One person's belief cannot change the way that the people treat others. We are human beings living together on this small planet and we need to preserve the earth and protect each person from wherever they came seeking a better life and future for themselves and their families. Many lives are threatened and endangered in the country that they have come from, put yourself in their shoes

    True Refugees Ana Displaced Persons—YES..... Others — NO I agree that Refugees and displaced persons are among the most vulnerable populations in the world, and they deserve the protection of governments who can afford to take them. Expressing the House’s support for refugees and the refugee resettlement program would help achieve this goal. However, we are seeing many individuals claiming refugees or a state persecution displaced status, without a justifiable cause in support of, their perceived status.

    If America is not going to safeguard refugees, how can we possibly justify interfering in international politics at all? What are we fighting for if not human rights? Are we ready to admit we send our children to fight for oil and corporate profit, because otherwise we’d better at least pretend to stand for something worthy of their lives.
