Online Poll: Should the U.S. take in Syrian refugees?

Apr 20, 2017

This week we are asking:

"Should the U.S. take in Syrian refugees?"

Millions have been displaced by the civil war in Syria, with many refugees fleeing into neighboring countries and into Europe. The question of whether the U.S. takes in refugees has sparked controversy between those who argue they could not be properly screened for security and those who want to help in the largest humanitarian crisis of our time. Where do you stand?

See attached chart for results from last week's questions on whether readers support airstrikes in Syria and troops on the ground.
