"Should women, from oppressive societies be allowed to come into our country under political asylum?"No. How many such women do you suppose there are? We obviously cannot accomodate half the population of the Middle East. Besides, terrorists can be female. This could be a pretext to smuggle in subversives.The stupid Canadians would never be able to tell for sure whether such a person was even female. They have just ruled that anyone claiming to be a Mohammedan woman cannot be required to remove the head covering that shows only the eyes, even for a government identification photograph.The world has suddenly become too dangerous for us to continue taking risks. I would be in favor of eliminating the practice of granting political asylum for any reason, to either gender.In reality, the poorest and most vulnerable women in these modern barbaric countries would probably NOT be the ones trying to get to the United States. Rather it would be the very few better off, well educated, and atriculate ones. Instead of trying to improve their own personal situation by relocating to America, let them stay in their countries and do whatever they can to change things. If the United States serves as a magnet to drain off any and all such potentially influential women, there will be nobody left in those countries who could work towards the general betterment of the less fortunate masses.
