As many people come to realize, there has been a very difficult situation that has been approaching our front steps! I have created this debate to get a better understanding from both sides of the situation. When people often debate in the direction of bringing in refugees to America it seems to catch my attention in a way I believe most people don't see. Now with that being said i would like to inform the people reading this that i am a Christian Arab who is from a Arab country. Please feel free to share Comments/Opinions/Debatable arguments along with anything else!
Thank you!


My argument is quite simple. This country was founded on the backs of immigrants and on the foundation that all men are created equal. All peoples deserve and opportunity.
Debate Round No. 1


I couldn't agree more! with that being said lets take a look closer to what is going on in the world today! When people migrated to this country before 1912 (give or take 1 year not sure the exact year) immigration was open to anyone who believes they can make a better future for themselves. That is not so much the case today! you have several countries that have accepted refugees within the last 5 years that are now in "state of emergency". now lets look a little deeper as to who the refugees really are!? We have a group of people who believe in an ideology and dictate their beliefs to citizens. I have personally read the Quran and will recommend you do also. When you have someone who is promised an eternal life in paradise if they commit violence against the "non-believers" it is very hard to get them to adapt to the way of life in America.
With that being said i completely agree that every human is equal, but that is not so much the case with them. If we should act we should help them where they are today and not bring them to our door step!

rjz I really don't think you have read the Quran or done research on it

so I will do it for you

Islam prohibits violence and promotes peace and justice:

As mentioned earlier, the Quran -- the holy words of none other than Allah Almighty -- can best bear the witness for Islam"s inclination towards peace, justice, and harmony amongst human beings while negating and discouraging violence, terrorism, and injustice.

This becomes very evident if one vows to read the Qur'an and apply it on personal basis. Doing so in modern times is much more convenient as people can read the Qur'an online. Listed below are a few verses that support the claim that Islam is a true religion of peace and tranquility.

"O ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do." (Surah 4, Verse 135).
"God advocates justice, charity, and regarding the relatives. And He forbids evil, vice, and transgression. He enlightens you, that you may take heed." (Surah 16, Verse 90).

"And if ye do punish them, punish them no worse than they punished you: but if ye show patience, that is indeed the best (course) for those who are patient." (Surah 16, Verse 126).
These are just a few references from the Holy Qur'an. You may find many more of them that promote nothing else but peace and justice.
