2 Syrian families cross US border in Texas

I have to wonder how many of those Americans that were charged with connections to ISIS were at some point refugees themselves.
Also, in regards to this, I should correct myself from before. The 81% of people charged with connections to ISIS were born in the US, not just US citizens as I mistakenly posted previously. So they weren't refugees themselves.

That is good to hear but it still concerns me bringing so many in the US when Europe is having so many problems with Muslims, many refugees from the past.

One thing that gives me hope is this.

The reporters that went undercover to expose these radicals were Muslim. It will take action by Muslims to stop radical Islam because the radicals or those on the verge of being radicalized aren't going to listen to non Muslims, we are just a bunch of infidels to them that need to be wiped out or converted.

I wonder if part of the problem in Europe is that there's a lot less ethnic diversity in most European countries in comparison to the US. I would imagine it's more difficult for a refugee or immigrant to assimilate into a more homogeneous population where there's perhaps less ethnic tolerance. Just a thought.
