I don’t know about you, but I felt like the wind was knocked out of me last Friday. This country will be reeling for untold years as a result of some of the most recent decisions of our most honored court. The Supreme Court, who is supposed to be blind to all things political and just focus on the black and white of the law, (no racism implied).

It seems as though certain democrats are dealing in narratives and not facts when it comes to the request for 65,000 Syrian refugees to settle in America over the next few years.

These refugees will be placed all over the country and may be slated to come to your town by 2016.

In addition the panel spoke abut the Syrian refugee screening process and its probable vulnerabilities relating to our safety.
