That is really the only gripe I have with all of this.
If it matters any I really do hope you are right.

Well the U.S. hardly has a great record in allowing refugees, political prisoners, people fleeing violence and persecution into the country. Look at the treatment of the Jews following World War II and Iraqis following the U.S. invasion.

It was logical for these people to avoid any U.S. Government apparatus.
