I believe if we determined we would ONLY take Christians we would be okay because these people already, as Daniel said, are pretty much aligned to Western thinking especially as to culture and faith. Even with this proviso there would be a necessity to check each of them out. When we had the situation with the hurricane devesatation of New Orleans various states voluteered to take some of the displaced. In Nevada, my understanding is that there were 1000 we agreed to take.......Las Vegas got 800 and Reno, where we lived before moving here to Texas, took 200. Even with these people who already were of our own culture...except most were black people....and many Christian as well it wasn't easy. And too they spoke our language. So. If accepting people from our own country into our state was not that easy think of the problems with Middle Easterners........even the Christians. But we should offer to accept Christians in the US first.........
