According ISIS sources, they report that there are 4,000 ISIS agents inside the EU alone. ISIS poses a large terrorist threat as they cannot be negotiated with and willingly will die for their cause. It has already been established that refugees pose a risk as some of the Paris attackers were refugees

http://www.breitbart.com...

62% of Americans do not believe more refugees should be accepted. Since we are a representative democracy a just government ought to listen to the people based on social contract theory. A just government derives its power only from the people, who implicitly consent to the contract in return for the government listening to them, consent of the governed. Therefore a 38% minority ought not to rule in a democracy for the people.

Conclusion

Refugees pose a risk to national security and most Americans do not want to accept them. Vote Con based on sources and arguments. Pro failed to provide an argument in this debate. Thank you.

Reasons for voting decision: Lol. I have to say. Conduct wise I think Pro won because of that failed link in pros area. But Con made actual arguments and sources so I had to give him that
