2. The Bible, for those debating Christians.

“When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt.” (Leviticus 19:33-34)

3. Zero Americans have been killed by Syrian refugees in a terrorist attack in the United States.

The majority of terrorism in the US is committed by white American men.

4. The refugee vetting process is extremely thorough and can take months to years.
