There's more than enough room in Antarctica for these refugees.....
Naguib Sawiris, one of the region's wealthiest men, said "there is no limit" on what he is willing to spend to buy an island from Italy or Greece -- where thousands have been arriving -- to provide the refugees with a new home.
"Greece or Italy, sell me an island," Sawiris tweeted. He even suggested a name for the new country: "Hope."
He said there are dozens of empty islands off of Greece and Italy that could handle 100,000 to 200,000 people. And he rejected a suggestion that it was a "ridiculous" idea.
"It's a very simple solution," he told CNN Friday. "They sell the island to me and I'll make a temporary shelter for these people. I'll make a small port or marina for the boats to land there. I'll employ the people to build their own homes, their schools, a hospital, a university, a hotel," he said.
By late Saturday, however, 16 people--including children and pregnant women--had been released from U.S. custody for humanitarian reasons. Bazzi said the church was receiving some of them and placing them with family members in San Diego.
Mexican officials, who detained the Iraqis as illegal immigrants, agreed to release them as long as U.S. immigration officials were prepared to process asylum applications, some of which had been submitted two months ago. The INS dispatched extra staffers to the port of entry to handle the increased flow of arrivals.

Yes, at the same rate.
They kill anyone that doesn't agree with their radical religion.
And yes more then them are being saved but that isn't what this thread is about.
Should some people be allowed to skip the up to two year process the other refugees are going through to do what we can to screen those coming in?
Muslim “apostates” are the most common victims.
Obama no more wants the Middle East’s Christian refugees than Roosevelt wanted Europe’s Jewish refugees.
