One thing that seems to be missing from the debate over Syrian refugees coming to America is the fact that the Boston bombers were also once refugees.
America did nothing but love and welcome them, trying to help them adjust to a new home after their country had been torn apart by war and conflict.
How did they repay us? By bombing one of our most beloved sporting events and killing Americans in the process…
According to the Daily Caller:
“Needless to say, the Boston bombers actually were refugees, with their parents arriving in the U.S. on tourist visas in 2002 and then claiming asylum on the basis that their ties to Chechnya could expose them to persecution back in Russia. Once their parents were given asylum, the two boys and their sisters were able to also receive asylum by extension.
That asylum was upgraded to legal permanent residency in 2007. In 2013, the brothers bombed the Boston Marathon, throwing the city into panic and ultimately killing five people. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed by police during the chase to apprehend the brothers, while Dzhokhar was arrested and recently sentenced to death for his role in the attack.”
