In bygone eras, immigrants from other countries were also denounced as dangerous to the American way of life. Yes, some of them became legendary criminals in the Mafia, Irish mobs, Chinese tongs, Russian mobs and gangs. But the vast majority of the people became wonderful citizens, contributing to the vibrant diversity of this country, not to mention the incredible food.

The Syrians will be no different.
