Quote of the Day - Refugee Edition

By a Syrian refugee:
If you really care about refugees, if you really care about helping us, please -- help us stay here in our country ... We don't want to come to the United States. We want to stay in our country. We want to stay in our country ... With all due respect, this is hypocrisy. If you really care, if you really us stay in our country. We don't want to become refugees. We want to stay in our country.
Why on earth would they not want to stay in their own homes, in their own communities?  Safely?

This was on CNN, whose interviewer (of course) was mortified that her interviewee wouldn't say anything bad about Donald Trump.  It must be mystifying to them.
