I was quite discouraged when the Governor of N.H. Maggie Hassan announced that she wanted a complete halt to Syrian Refugees entering the United States. First I thought it odd, as a Governor to be speaking for the rest of the United States, but she does not even speak for everyone in New Hampshire. She never even asked us how we felt about it. I myself think that after we allow the vetting process to work, we should be helping the refugees of Syria, or any other nation that needs a place of refuge. Have we not learned anything from our past?
I hope that President Obama holds strong to his conviction in allowing Syrian refugees into our country, and in our state of New Hampshire.
