My Daily Read: November 17th, 2015

With the Paris incident fresh in mind, I have been reviewing reactions worldwide. In the midst of this flurry of action and reaction, I have noted that (at the time I write this) 27 State Governors are rejecting the idea of Syrian "refugees" settling within the boundaries of their states. To my mind, this illustrates the need for coherent immigration reform. While State Governors actually have no authority over who immigrates or where they settle, (see the following article on line: http://www.voc.com/explainers/2015/11/17/9749484/governors-refugees-syria) this protest shows a need to balance immigration and security concerns. What then, is a reasonable approach? The two extremes, banning immigration totally, and removing all restrictions, are obviously not workable. What are your views on this issue?
