Obama said his decision is "justified by humanitarian concerns or is otherwise in the national interest."
A population larger than Iowa City will be "coming to America". The Boston Marathon Bombers of tomorrow have to start somewhere.
Barack Obama has determined that up to 70,000 refugees will be admitted to the U.S. during fiscal year 2014.
In his memorandum for Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday, Obama said his decision is "justified by humanitarian concerns or is otherwise in the national interest."

15,000 from Africa, 14,000 from East Asia, 1,000 from Europe and Central Asia, 5,000 from the Caribbean and Latin America, 33,000 from Near East and South Asia and 2,000 set for "unallocated reserve...

The Tsarnaev clan came as refugees. They finished by murdering Americans in the name of Islam. And they're not the only ones. Was the Boston Marathon bombing in our national interest?
