Since the Syrian civil war began in 2011, more than 4 million Syrians have fled the country, creating the greatest refugee crisis since World War II (1939–45). Most have fled to neighboring countries such as Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan, but many have risked death to reach Europe and the possibility of a better life. Unlike Europe and Syria’s neighbors, the United States has had the advantage of picking and choosing from afar, taking in just over 2,000 Syrian refugees since the war’s start. The Obama administration pledged to take another 10,000 refugees in 2016, but some believe that the United States should accept far more, as many as 100,000. America has a moral obligation, they argue, to provide refuge to people fleeing war, persecution, and danger. But opponents argue that accepting so many refugees could threaten national security and cause economic and social problems. Should the United States let in 100,000 Syrian refugees?
