Photo credit: I have taken this photo at the top from the blog of John Feffer, published just over two months ago on June 28th. It is a blog very much worth reading. Feffer details the scope of the refugee crisis and the failure of the modern world to address it adequately. One thing he points out that I did not address, because I focused on the German perspective, was that the United States has accepted no more than 700 of the four million refugees that have poured out of Syria since the crisis began. That question I attributed above to conservatives about criminals piggy-backing on the refugee population? Straight out of the Republican playbook.
Give me your tired, your poor.
Give me a break.
