Dr. Ben Carson, who traveled to overseas to speak to refugees, said the ones he met during his trip to the Middle East don’t want to come to the United States — they want to go home.
“I had an opportunity to talk to many of the Syrian refugees and ask them, ‘What is your supreme desire?’ And it was pretty uniform: They want to go back home,” Carson said on ABC’s This Week Sunday. “I was a little bit surprised with the answer, because it wasn’t what we’re hearing a lot. We’re hearing that they all want to come here to the United States. And that’s not what they want. They want to go back home.”
Let me be clear about a few things. We have $18.5 trillion in debt. We cannot afford to care for the number of people we have in the United States now. 98% of these people are probably harmless, but only a fool would believe that even 50% of them could find work that pays enough to cover their expenses within three years.
Our debt will soon prevent us from taking the actions that we – the leader of the free world – should be taking. Our debt, not terrorism, not global warming, is the biggest threat to the United States.
