Here are just a few of the attacks that have occurred in 2017:
Sunday night, a 64-year-old white man from Nevada opened fire on a crowd of more than 22,000 people at a country music festival in Las Vegas, killing more than 50 and wounding more than 200.
In August, a 20-year-old white Nazi sympathizer from Ohio sped his car into a crowd of anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing a woman and injuring at least 19 others.
In June, a 66-year-old white man from Illinois shot at Republican Congress members during an early morning baseball practice, severely wounding several people including Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the House of Representatives Majority Whip.
In March 2017, a 28-year-old white man from Baltimore traveled to New York City with the explicit aim of killing black men. He stabbed 66-year-old Timothy Caughman to death and was charged with terrorism by New York state authorities.
In May, a 35-year-old white man from Oregon named Jeremy Joseph Christian began harassing Muslim teenagers on a train in Portland, telling them “We need Americans here!” Two men interceded; Christian then stabbed and killed them both.

I make the distinction at foreigners.
We have bad citizens lets deal with them, but we don't need to import more problems.

It's True, we just bend over and say "Thank You, May I have another?".
If they told you 1 M&M in every million will kill you.
You would stop eating M&M's.
How can we continue to import this into our Cities.
I know there a millions of peaceful Muslim's in this World,
But, which ones ? How can we even background check ?
They have no secret handshakes or special rings...We don't know.
Until this mess is straightened out we need a full stop.
We need to review who we have already let in.
We need to be smarter. They had an immigration lotto ?
I hate to say it...But, we Americans are the biggest suckers on the Planet.
We Must Wake Up !!!

so if 1 m&m in a million is deadly but the other 999,999 are totally cool m&ms and deserve to live good lives out of the danger of the situation they're fleeing, and will be productive citizens? i don't think that's too big a risk.
i'm pretty sure more than 1 in a million of these homegrown m&ms are deadly and i live with that risk. bringing in immigrants might actually lessen the overall odds of getting killed by an m&m.
