Students Respond to Syrian Refugee Poll

A Facebook status posted early Tuesday afternoon got mixed responses to the questions of “should we allow immigrants to seek refuge on American soil?”

Fifth year senior at CBC, Lauren Sweeten, says that she does not feel safe letting Syrian refugees into the country because of the already promised threats that we are the next country to be bombed by ISIS.

Ndidi Shinn said, “I think it’s sad that people see ALL Muslims and ALL people who practice Islam as a threat.” Shinn says that the Republican Party is suggesting that we only allow Christian refugees and are using this tragedy to spread their own propaganda.

A face to face interview with sophomore Beth Jones ended shortly with a refusal to comment simply because she felt she was not well informed enough on the topic to give an opinion.
