This is ONLY shocking for uninformed ignorant people.

Let's go back to the 90's...Haitian refugees fleeing on boats thrown into internment camps...Cubans treated like human beings. Whatever...this country has always been guilty of the most disgusting hypocrisy and is this new and "shocking"? maybe if you've been living under a rock....

Hey, we don't care about Palestinian refugees (going on 60 years). Whatever makes you think we'd ever care about Iraqi refugees. They're the wrong color and the wrong religion. They're not people.
