Should there be a religious test for refugees? President Obama the only adult in the room

Amazingly, Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush believe that christians are the only refugees that should be allowed in the United States. 

President Obama shows what 1 compassion is, versus the xenophobes.

 

“And when I hear folks say that, well, maybe we should just admit the Christians but not the Muslims, when I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which person who’s fleeing from a war-torn country is admitted, when some of those folks themselves come from families who benefited from protection when they were fleeing political persecution, that’s shameful,” he said, his voice rising. “That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion.”
