One might say gee -- we can't even get Colorado Medicaid to cover Assertive Community Treatment where "reasonably medically necessary" AND you're talkin' about Rohingya Muslims? Well, yes we are. We don't live in a vacuum and we take bold positions like, "Genocide is Bad for Your Mental Health" and its bad for the mental health of those observing it -- So in such an inter-connected world It Matters.
Even before Trump and his infamous executive order, the US was pretty slow to admit refugees from Syria. We're NOT saying the US shouldn't or that it shouldn't reunite families -- but if the US has fears about some of these countries (irrational as they maybe) there are no shortages of desperate refugees in this world and maybe the US and the other countries should triage them.
To rehabilitate the US' reputation that it is NOT discriminating against Muslims AND to shore up everyone's mental health -- the US should prioritize Rohingya Muslim immigrants from Myanmar and Bangladesh, and possibly other countries.
