Or rather, 10,000 more.
Those that are already here will be permitted to stay and apply for benefits that normally go to actual citizens. Same deal for newer arrivals.

Liberals call it a humanitarian gesture. Trump and other conservatives call it “a great Trojan Horse.”
“We don’t know who they are,” says Trump.
No, we don’t.
“We don’t know their intentions.”
True. However, we do know that over the years Syria was never a friend of Israel or of the United States. We know that when it was time to chant “Death to Israel” and when it was time to burn the American flag, Syrians were among the first to join the performance.
There is no doubt that eventually they will be given a path to citizenship, which means a path to vote.
Which means a path to vote Democrat. That’s why Hillary Clinton wants even more of them.Justin Trudeau, too.
