After meeting in Jordan with Syrian refugees, Ben Carson continues to believe bringing them to the United States is useless.



Carson posted a lengthy Facebook statement after his visit about how he heard firsthand the struggles and pains of people “who were forced to flee their own homes.”

“They came to Jordan for safety,” Carson says. “Jordan is doing an amazing job opening its doors and extending a hand in relief. The rest of the world could be doing so much more.”

What does that mean for the United States? Well, as Carson explains, the refugees should stay in the Middle East and the U.S. should provide support to them:

Jordan is a small country. They need the world’s help to feed, educate, and care for these refugees until the war ends.

The United States must do more. Bringing 25,000 refugees to the United States does nothing to solve this crisis. Jordan already houses 1.4 million refugees. Jordan needs and deserves our help.
