This is like trying to find a needle in a haystack with a match, because everyone gets burned. The worst thing we can do in the current refugee situation is create a 'rock and hard place' situation, where neither ISIS nor the Western world seems like a viable and safe option. We're afraid of the 1 in a million+ extremist, while the rest of the refugees are left to decide if they would prefer racial and religious segregation or an extremist and violent take on their own culture. What we need to be doing is living up to our standing as the United States of America, and welcoming refugees onto our shores, using our incredible abundance of wealth and resources to make them feel welcome here, and utilizing the experiences, skills and abilities they bring with them to make our country better. When the Republican debate is about national security after 14 people were killed by people who practice Islam in a nation of 300+million (a nation where 3,000 people are the victims of gun violence every year and a majority of the 2 million people in prison are people of color), we look like the biggest white supremacist wussies in the world. That doesn't juxtapose well against ISIS, because it makes it so that refugees feel they are fleeing from the fire into the frying pan.
