I liked this idea when Trump first raised it during his campaign. I still like it despite the turmoil his executive order closing the door to refugees apparently has created at some airports here and elsewhere. It was bound to cause problems. The only way to avoid them would be to continue the refugee influx.
Which I never quite understood to begin with. I recall the Vietnamese refugee situation in the 1970s and early 80s when National Guard bases in Arkansas and Pennsylvania were used to house them until sponsors could be found for each family and the guarantee of a job. But that was a different age it seems.
Barry Hussein seems to have been dumping them into small American towns, particularly in the midwest, without much if any planning. Of course he wouldn’t have sought to bother the coastal cities, where most of his party’s votes come from. He was by far the most partisan president in a generation.
Just why we are supposed to take these people, most of them Middle Eastern Muslims, has never been clear to me. Because of the fighting in Iraq and Syria? Barry’s policies created the refugee problems in both those places. Perhaps that’s why he felt the need to take them. But that’s his problem. It shouldn’t be ours.

UPDATE: Dilbert creator and Trump supporter Scott Adams on Trump’s strategy. I just hope that in negotiating back to the middle we don’t wind up with more refugees. Send ’em to Europe. Let the Germs be overwhelmed. They haven’t atoned near enough for the Holocaust. Give it another thousand years.
