Naturalization of Refugees or Temporary Shelter?

Reader comment on item: Trump: You Should Ban Islamists, Not Muslims
in response to reader comment: Potential USCIS questions to screen Islamists who reject Constitutional principles

If the United States admits a refugee there are two distinctions that should be made:

The first:Is the person seeking a temporary refuge from forces that would kill or hurt the person and the person plans to repatriate when the danger is over? The second: Does the person want to become a citizen of the United States? If the latter is the case then an oath of allegiance to our constitution is required. The person should be made to clearly understand that Sharia law cannot displace US laws.
