More Syrian Refugees To US: Costs And Consequences

by | May 25, 2016

President Obama has suggested that he would like to admit 100,000 refugees from Middle East wars to the United States in 2017. According to one study, the total cost of such a policy to the US taxpayer would be more than six billion dollars over the next five years. Additional refugees would raise that cost significantly. Anyone who objects to such a massively expensive program is accused of being heartless. But what about those who objected to US interventionist “regime change” policies that created the refugee crisis in the first place? Are we who would have left them alone to live their lives really heartless? And what would be the best solution to the crisis? Tune in to the Liberty Report to find out:
