Branstad To Iowans: Be Afraid Of Refugees

branstad2A sad day for Iowa.  Yesterday, Gov. Branstad ordered all state agencies to halt any work on Syrian refugee resettlements immediately, “in order to ensure the security and safety of Iowans” in light of the Paris attacks.

Let’s look at this in a broader context.  More than 32,000 people per year are killed by guns in the United States.  Yet we’re supposed to be afraid of a bunch of refugees because of a terrorist attack in France that while a tragedy, as all violence is, resulted in about the same number of deaths that occur by guns in the U.S. approximately every two days.

But at least Branstad’s approach to keeping out refugees is equal-opportunity rejection.  Jeb! wants a religious test.  Here’s what President Obama has to say about that.
