Re: Let the burden lie with its proponents
I don't think its a reasonable analogy. I might be in favor of having prisons, but not want prisoners and a guard in my house. I might want to rescue endangered bison, but not want one in my back yard. I may support education, but not want to teach myself.
I think it IS fair that anyone who wants the US to take in refugees should be happy to have some of them in their city. I am.
Anyone who wants to allow Muslims to immigrate to the US should be happy to have them living nearby. They are in my case.
I'd be happy to have refugees living on my block or in my apartment complex if the necessary services were available.
Similarly I'm happy with reducing TSA security and I spend a lot of time on airliners exposed to the risks that represents.
