    All those people were born in either the US or Canada (Paul Anka) and are the sons or daughters of first or second generation Sryians. All were born before ISIS and other Islamic terrorist groups were formed or became a problem. It's a different world today. I see no problem in carefully vetting asylum seekers from Syria others from predominately Muslim countries or anywhere for that matter.

    ^ Not disagreeing with you but the nine terrorists who attacked Paris were in their twenties which mean they were born before 2003, a date of which Iraq was invaded and the creation of ISIS.

    Which means they were at the perfect moment in their lives (in their late teens and twenties) to be recruited and radicalized by a group like ISIS. Also, your examples grew up in the West at a time when there was no such groups in the US. The government MUST ensure these radicals do not gain a foothold here.

    This is the problem with Liberals, half or less is 100%.

    Newsflash Liberals, Obama isn't black. He's mixed race.

    Here's Barry with his maternal grandparents:

    And your point is that Jerry Seinfeld was a Moslem and a terriorist that gave it up when he moved to the states?

    Liberal contrarianism is never constructive or problem solving.

    My point is that these great Americans who make our country great despite being second-generation Syrians. They came to our country because of their parents who immigrated here.

    No, your point is that Syrian refugees are fleeing our enemy and fighting for their lives and we shouldn't be a bigoted, stupid, unwelcoming bunch of sissies that are too scared to even figure out who the enemy is. This Republican smear is typical.

    They DIDN'T COME to this country. They were BORN here. THEY ARE AMERICANS. Not Syrians. Not Syrian-Americans. AMERICANS!

    They can't be here unless their parents who birth them here. In other words, we would never have Steve Jobs if his parents did not immigrated here.

    So why are we fighting a civil war for the Syrians? We don't even know which side to support( as usual) . If you remember two years ago Obama was supplying Isis with war material.

    Kinda crazy don't you think to send our young men and women to the Mid East to die as the "refugees" move here to get away from a mess they made.

    If England's Parliment had voted to support the South in our civil war we would be whistleling Dixie.

    Steve Jobs's biological father, Abdulfattah "John" Jandali (b. 1931), was born into a Muslim household and grew up in Homs, Syria.[9] Jandali is the son of a self-made millionaire who did not go to college and a mother who was a traditional housewife.[9] While an undergraduate at the American University of Beirut, he was a student activist and spent time in jail for his political activities.[9] Although Jandali initially wanted to study law, he eventually decided to study economics and political science.[9] He pursued a PhD in the latter subject at the University of Wisconsin, where he met Joanne Carole Schieble, a Catholic of German descent who grew up on a farm in Wisconsin.[2][9] As a doctoral candidate, Jandali was Schieble's teaching assistant although both were the same age.[10] Mona Simpson (Jobs's biological sister), notes that her maternal grandparents were not happy that their daughter was dating Jandali: "it wasn't that he was Middle-Eastern so much as that he was a Muslim. But there are a lot of Arabs in Michigan and Wisconsin. So it's not that unusual."[10] Walter Isaacson, Steve Jobs's official biographer, additionally states that Schieble's father "threatened to cut Joanne off completely" if she continued the relationship.[2]

    Schieble became pregnant in 1954 when she and Jandali spent the summer with his family in Homs, Syria. Jandali has stated that he "was very much in love with Joanne ... but sadly, her father was a tyrant, and forbade her to marry me, as I was from Syria. And so she told me she wanted to give the baby up for adoption."[12] Jobs told his official biographer that Schieble's father was dying at the time, Schieble did not want to aggravate him, and both felt that at 23 they were too young to marry.[2] In addition, as there was a strong stigma against bearing a child out of wedlock and raising it as a single mother, and as abortions were illegal and dangerous, adoption was the only option women had in the United States in 1954.[7] According to Jandali, Schieble deliberately did not involve him in the process: "without telling me, Joanne upped and left to move to San Francisco to have the baby without anyone knowing, including me ... she did not want to bring shame onto the family and thought this was the best for everyone.”[12] Schieble put herself in the care of a “doctor who sheltered unwed mothers, delivered their babies, and quietly arranged closed adoptions.”[2]

    Schieble gave birth to Jobs on February 24, 1955, in San Francisco, and chose an adoptive couple for him that was "Catholic, well-educated, and wealthy."[13] However, the couple changed their mind and decided to adopt a girl instead.[13] When the baby boy was then placed with the Bay Area blue collar couple Paul and Clara Jobs, neither of whom had a college education, Schieble refused to sign the adoption papers.[2] She then took the matter to court, attempting to have her baby placed with a different family[13] and only consented to releasing the baby to Paul and Clara after they promised that he would attend college.[2] When Jobs was in high school, Clara admitted to his then-girlfriend, 17-year-old Chrisann Brennan, that she "was too frightened to love [Steve] for the first six months of his life ... I was scared they were going to take him away from me. Even after we won the case, Steve was so difficult a child that by the time he was two I felt we had made a mistake. I wanted to return him."[13] When Chrisann shared this comment with Jobs, he stated that he was aware of it[13] and would later say that he was deeply loved and indulged by Paul and Clara.[14] Many years later, Jobs's wife Laurene also noted that "he felt he had been really blessed by having the two of them as parents."[14] Jobs would become upset when Paul and Clara were referred to as "adoptive parents" as they "were my parents 1,000%."[2] With regard to his biological parents, Jobs referred to them as "my sperm and egg bank. That's not harsh, it's just the way it was, a sperm bank thing, nothing more."[2] Jandali has also stated that "I really am not his dad. Mr. and Mrs. Jobs are, as they raised him. And I don't want to take their place."[12]

    Jobs' parents weren't immigrants to this country. His mother was American. His father a Syrian student. Neither of whom raised Steve. He was born in AMERICA. He was an AMERICAN. He was adopted by AMERICANS when he was an infant. But hey let's not let facts get in the way of your propaganda.

    You need to check your facts. This site doesn't need two mettas.

    Ya. I agree. But I think we can pretty easily handle the immigration of a few thousand. And they're very likely the "moderate's" we wanted to support but just weren't a big enough group to win the war.

    actually my husband is a foreign national who is not eligible to vote; yet when we went to get his drivers license the clerk at the DMV was all set to get him registered to vote even after seeing his Mexican passport and his green card. It makes you wonder how many people who aren't eligible to vote are in fact voting?

    ^^ If he would have been registered to vote and had a valid license to show (yes in LA you have to show an ID) at the polls who would have stopped him from voting? How would this have been discovered? If it happened to him, how many others does this happen too?

    In world war II, a vast majority of the American public were against taking in Jews from Germany. A vast majority of the public were in favor of putting Japanese Americans in internment camps. These historical mindsets are bruising reminders of our past. Syrian immigrants are less of a threat to American than Donald Trump's belief that all Muslim Mosques should be monitored by the police. America's foundational tenets were based on the freedom of religion...Losing this core belief tarnishes our stately reputation for historical centuries to come.
