Rejecting Syrians

Gov. Rick Scott opposes allowing entrance for Syrian refugees. We are a nation of immigrants and Florida, more so.

We accepted boatloads of Cubans during the Mariel exodus with less screening than the Syrians will face. Some of those Cubans were criminals and did much harm, but most were deserving good people. We all survived it and are now thriving.

These refugees deserve no less. Open the border.
