<p>Following in the footsteps of Monday&rsquo;s <em>CBS This Morning</em>, the <em>CBS Evening News</em> featured on Tuesday a segment sounding the alarm on opposition to the U.S. accepting Syrian refugees with the comparison that those Syrians who have settled in the U.S. are facing <strong>&ldquo;another brewing problem&rdquo; </strong>in those opposed to their settlement (after having survived the horrors of the Assad regime).&nbsp;</p>

<p>Anchor Scott Pelley touted the support of the refugees by President Obama and French President Francois Hollande but added that<strong> &ldquo;opponents say that terrorists could hide among the migrants.&rdquo;</strong> He then tossed to correspondent Adriana Diaz with a <strong>&ldquo;look into the controversy in Kentucky&rdquo; </strong>as new refugees mark their first Thanksgiving in the U.S.</p>
