Lawmaker Proposes Segregation Camp For Syrian Refugees

At least one Rhode Island lawmaker is proposing a camp to segregate Syrian refugees.  WPRI-TV reports that Senator Elaine Morgan accidentally sent an email to several lawmakers, which implied that refugees should be put into a camp to protect U.S. citizens.  Morgan also wrote that the Muslim religion is centered around, quote, "murder, rape and decapitation," but later said that she mistakenly sent the message before editing it.  Morgan and other state leaders have called on the governor to refuse hosting Syrian refugees following the terrorist attacks in Paris.
