    The number of Muslim refugees is alarming because they are not processed correctly and pose a danger to us. However, I don’t care what religion they are–we cannot afford to support a single refugee when our veterans are homeless or receive substandard treatment at government VA hospitals. We cannot afford them when Americans are being asked to pay exorbitant health care premiums. We cannot afford them when we have a $20 trillion deficit. We cannot afford them when millions of Americans are out of work and the refugees are seen as cheap labor by certain segments of the economy. I advocate massive deportations.
