Protecting people?

What country have we become when contenders for the office of the United States presidency want to give “preference to Christian refugees from Syria,” and elected governors refuse to take the refugees in order to protect their people?

We have enough of our people shot down by our own people with a gun. How are you, governors, protecting us from gun violence? Why does political pandering override our collective sense of compassion and fairness?

Common sense dictates that we have a more robust checking process to let them in rather than close the doors on all of them, including children.
