Paris Terrorist Attacks - Part 1

Are the refugees thoroughly checked before entry? Rolling Stone doubling down on being open: <a href="http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/after-paris-attacks-dont-close-doors-to-refugees-open-them-20151114?page=2" target="_blank">http://www.rollingstone.com/politics...refugees-open-them-201511...

Paris Terrorist Attacks - Part 1

Syrian passport found on one of the suicide bombers. The biorders need to be more secure. I fear with the mass amount of refugees coming in, terrorists can come in, too.
