Dangerous collaboration

Catholic Charities and Catholic Relief Services are teaming up with the federal government of the United States to assist in resettling refugees from various foreign countries, including Syria.  Ohio is one of the resettlement locations.  Ohio Catholic dioceses and Catholic Charities agencies have issued guidelines for preparing the "heart of it all" to welcome the refugees.  This is happening against the backdrop of terrorist attacks linked to members of the Islamic State in Europe and despite the warnings from the FBI that refugees cannot be adequately vetted.  The stream of refugees provides a cover for transient terrorists, as we have already seen in Paris and Texas.  Of course, not every refugee is a terrorist.  Yet, just one can kill thousands.  No American should be so quick to ignore the obvious threats to our national security and irresponsibly welcome refugees, anymore than we would welcome rank strangers into our home and among our children.  The reality of today's world demands a more careful response.  When (not if) a terrorist posing as an un-vettable refugee destroys life and property on American soil, the blood of the innocent will be on the hands of everyone remotely and materially cooperating in this harebrained scheme.
