This is completely opinion, if I offend you, feel free to hit the red “X” in the top right corner.
Everyone in the U.S. is all bent out of shape about Syrian Refugees.
The biggest argument is “We can’t help refugees because we have homeless in this country already”.
Dear Americans, DO NOT use homeless to make you look like a better person or as an argument against refugees. We have homeless veterans, homeless families and starving children in this country because none of you are doing anything about it.
Donating to Red Cross once a year does not make you a good person. Going to church and praying for them does not make you a good person. Doing nothing while bitching about it on social media does not make you a good person.
If less than 1% of this country did something about homelessness, something real, the problem would be gone overnight. Instead we choose to pray, complain, or donate to companies that keep the money for their CEO’s.
DO NOT use homeless people as an excuse not to take refugees. It’s just a convenient way to make yourself look good. Homeless people are tired of being taken advantage of and they profit in no way from your “noble stand” for them. Do something real for them if you actually care.
P.S. I find it interesting that those who use this argument the most are the ones who want Welfare abolished. Interesting huh?
We would take refugees in a heartbeat, the only problem is we have zero money to help them with. Also, the state of Michigan is banning them from coming here, or at least trying. All I can do is offer this up, trying to show people how stupid they are being and maybe they will realize that helping people, no matter what culture, religion, sexuality or color they are, is a good thing.
