LOUISVILLE —America’s newest family of Syrian refugees flew in late at night, and Sarhan Aldobai, 36, looked down from the plane at the distant lights of his new home. His wife was nursing their baby in the next seat. His five other children had fallen asleep. Sarhan took out the small world map he had carried since leaving Syria in 2012 and tried to trace the plane’s path.

Ugh, why am I not surprised by your post.
Why do you assume he will be on welfare, is it because he won't be able to find a job or will become a freeloader?

The money spent relocating one refugee all the way in the US could fund the relocation of 13 war refugees in a safe place in the Middle East closer to their home. There they can speak their language and continue their customary way of life.
And of course it will be much closer and easier for them o go back home whn the war is over.
Why help so relatively few whn you can help 13 times more?

There are many well-educated who have gone to university and are skilled engineers and scientists.
And just how many US college graduates cannot find a job ???
Don't you see the frustration of US citizens?
