Can refugees be trusted? Should the US accept them?

The answer from a psychologist is obvious; no one knows if they can be trusted. No one knows if they will go to school, get a job, contribute to the community. No one knows. All we know is that the odds are against them because they come from an unstable places. But, the question if they can be trusted and accepted are easy to answer. The answer is “We don’t know but we can find out! Give them psychological and situational tests. Develop a program.” Cost about $10 per person. Can be done before they arrive. I would assume that about 50% will pass and be approved. Immigrants built this country. Most will fit it fine. What about the 10% that won’t? The tests and the program will take care of that. When there is a will there is a way. When they is wisdom, there is a good program. If you yourself have relatively trusting good life you would probably vote for Trump next year. If you carry a bag on your shoulders filled with all kinds of problems, you’d probably vote for others such as Hillary, Bush, etc. Life under them will add to your problems and gloomy expectations of life. You’ll take in the refugees and hope for the best, like in Paris, there is always a collateral damage if you are not as smart as Trump! Good luck with your vote. Human being can be tested and their behavior can be predicted, if you are smart. Life can be good and compassionate if you are smart. Good luck!

    I don’t think anyone is actually asking whether the refugees can be trusted. What those who have concerns wonder is whether terrorists are likely to sneak into the country while pretending to BE refugees.
    Considering how long it takes for a refugee to qualify for asylum, compared to easier ways of entering such as the visa waiver programs, it’s an irrational fear.

    According to UNHCR, 75% of the refugees are women and children, and less than 3% are men of combat age. You don’t need to design a program to test them psychologically. A five year-old war orphan is not dangerous…period. But the five year-old will still be seven before the US government officially rules they aren’t dangerous and places them.
