DEAR AMERICA: Muslim Group Says, ‘Tracking Refugees Is UN-AMERICAN’ … Do YOU Agree?

A bill under consideration in South Carolina proposes a refugee registry; civil liability for sponsors if refugees from Syria, Sudan and Iran commit acts of terrorism; and an injunction against state spending on refugees or their families.
