One wonders if Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto has visited the White House once too often. His ludicrous idea to bring 500 Syrians to Pittsburgh is beyond comprehension.

The recent carnage in France, where as many as 129 persons lost their lives and more than 350 were wounded, offers proof that no sane person would intentionally bring in 500 unknown individuals from the Middle East.

To those who insist that our government would vet them, one only has to look at how effectively our government has checked those crossing our southern borders. To date, well over 12 million illegal aliens have poured across our borders.

To paraphrase an old saying, I ask Mayor Peduto to “wake up and smell the world of jihadism.”

We don’t need the deliberate infusion of terrorism anywhere within the USA!
