McCrory’s stance on Syrian refugees makes bad situation worse

Using the tragic events in France as a basis for denying refugees entrance into our state is misguided and wrong

Further, Gov. Pat McCrory’s focus on Syria and 33 additional “special interest” countries is a worrisome indicator that Islamophobia is at play

What this badly muddled situation cries out for is a comprehensive federal policy that allows immigrants who do not pose a threat to come and contribute to our culture and our economy
