This is another issue that has a reasonable middle ground position. I think that it is morally unconscionable to "ban" refugee immigration from war torn portions of the Middle East entirely. However, it is sad but undeniable that these populations include some individuals that are affiliated with radically militant organizations. Given the administrative chaos in these areas, and the difficulty in obtaining up to date and reliably accurate personal information regarding potential immigrants, it would seem reasonable and prudent to establish a more stringent vetting process. That said, we should sincerely attempt to develop those vetting protocols as quickly as possible to allow timely (and safer) immigration to proceed. Furthermore, we need to make it exceedingly clear to these countries, and to the world in general, that the additional vetting has NOTHING WHAT SO EVER to do with religion in any way, and this fact needs to be demonstrated in a compelling, credible and sincere manner.
