On the Claim Made by the Center for Immigration Studies (an Admittedly Anti-Immigration Organization) that it Would Cost $128.7 Million to Resettle 10,000 Syrian Refugees in America but Only $10.6 Million to Resettle Them in Other Middle-Eastern Countries (1/12th the Cost, in Other Words)
Assuming that the numbers are correct (which may or may not be a wise option), I think that we may have stumbled upon the perfect compromise. a) We're helping the refugees. b) We're saving taxpayer bucks. c) We wouldn't have to worry about terrorist infiltration of the refugee population. And d) being that these other countries are much closer to Syria, the assimilation process should be significantly easier. I mean, yeah, Obama and the Democrats would have to wave bye-bye to a bunch of potential Democratic voters but that shouldn't be an overriding concern (to anyone who's name isn't Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, at least), correct?
