Give the housing to civilized people that know how to behave. Anyone involved in this riot should be barred from section 8 housing for life!

Not much in the film looked incredibly disorderly. Granted, the film was from after the "event," so to speak.

Still, not much different from any other crowd lined up way in advance for some limited commodity.

Hell I saw worse when people were fighting over Cabbage Patch dolls, Tickle Me Elmo, and Windows XP.

If the police used mace, it was out of control. On what status are these people here and qualified for subsidies?

The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she

With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

A poem by Emma Lazarus is graven on a tablet

within the pedestal on which the Statue of Liberty stands.

Those were for Western Europeans with a Christian world view, not Tribal Africans and violent Muslims looking to "get theirs" through tax payer exploitation. Those people were a disgrace as they brought Mogadishu to Morse Road.

There are tribal Africans with a Christian world view, but it's better to develop Africa than bring more people here. Many of them are under threat from Islam, we need to arm and train them. As well as purging the animist leftovers in their philosophy.
As to the Muslims, we really cannot allow a Muslim underclass into this country, and remember that Muslims self-segregate and will form the underclass while their multiple wives are on the dole. And to them stealing from the infidel oppressor and using it to fund jihad is virtuous.
I don't know a single group arriving in this country who didn't "self segregate." Why do we have places like Little Italy, Chinatown, German Village (and Italian and Hungarian Villages), not to mention Flytown, the Blacberry patch and some others? Parts of my family came through the Swedish Mission Lutheran section of Chicago while others followed trades to parts of the US where they could work at the skills that they brought with them.

Cubans in Florida (notoriously Republican) tended to not only settle in groups but to resist "assimilation" because they clung to the belief that they would one day return.

And one more time, it would appear that all you know of Islam comes from anti-Muslim propaganda.

Uh, no, most of what I know about Islam comes from interactions with actual Muslims involving foreign policy conversations and the writings of Bernard Lewis the greatest western scholar about Islam. Also Samuel P Hunnington.
Most people who came here, didn't live in cities. While some areas were mostly settled by one former nationality, they dispensed with their former language (the Amish a noted exception) and learned English, which in addition few of them considered the nation they lived in to be against their religion (Mormons a noted exception) or considered US foreign policy uniquely evil (Irish again a noted exception regarding independence, but it took decades to purge the stupid, my grandfather funded the IRA)
Further, if you look at the settlement patters of the much larger Islamist ghettos in Europe, you see what it will look like here if Obama gets to rewrite immigration policy to his own benefit.
Muslim fighters are commanded not to kill women, children, or the aged unless they attack first; not to torture or otherwise ill-treat prisoners; to give fair warning of the opening of hostilities or their resumption after a truce; and to honor agreements... At no time did the classical jurists offer any approval or legitimacy to what we nowadays call terrorism. Nor indeed is there any evidence of the use of terrorism as it is practiced nowadays.

Dunno where you get the impression that most people who came here didn't settle in cities, or that all became overnight English speakers. You have never heard of foreign language newspapers, theaters or houses of worship?

As recently as the 1970s there was an active project in Cleveland (Project Senior Ethnic Find) to support elderly persons in various immigrant neighborhoods who were becoming increasingly isolate because not only were they not fluent in English, but the younger bilingual generation had grown up and moved away.

And btw, I know of no US Muslims who regard the US government as being in opposition to their religion (not that there may not be some). I do know some non-Muslims who think that it SHOULD be, however.

Bullshit. The 9/11 hijackers were Muslim fighters and they didn't give a damn about killing women, children and the aged.

Refugee.
we the people did not vote for it, so it is not our problem

deport them all

we need to take care of our own; and let others seek assistance from their own country

this is going to end bad; and the refugees are digging graves for themselves
