KAYT you present a logical fallacy. You had a good premise for your argument but you have oversimplified the answers by stating the a single statement about refugees need to be fully vetted. You left out relevant information such as what the vetting policy is. Here is what you left out.
Security screenings are intense and led by
U.S. government authorities, including the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and multiple security agencies. The process typically takes up to 36 months and is followed by further security checks after refugees arrive in the States.
Refugees undergo biographic and biometric checks, medical screenings, forensic document testing, and in-person interviews. Because of the complexity of the conflict in their country, Syrian refugees must go through extra review steps with intelligence agencies and Department of Homeland Security officers who have particular expertise and training in conditions in Syria and the Middle East.

The U.S. resettlement program gives priority to refugees, usually vulnerable families, who have been targeted by violence. The U.S. does not recognize as refugees people who have committed violations of humanitarian and human rights law, including the crime of terrorism, as refugees. They are specifically excluded from the protection accorded to refugees.
A refugee is a person forced to flee his or her home because of war or political upheaval and seek safety in another country. They have well-founded reasons to fear persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, membership in social group or their political opinion. Refugee status is determined by the United Nations.

So I think looking at a Facebook page is not extreme vetting. Hand cuffing a five year old child is not extreme vetting. It is stupid and hateful. There have no terrorist attacked from this group of people because they are too busy destroying each other around home . How much more vetting do you want?
So I do not agree that we are taking away your liberty or jeopardize your freedom you have 1/23,000 change of being harmed by a terrorist than being shot with a gun. Maybe you should focus on gun control instead.
