1.  Do states have responsibility to accept political refugees?

Yes, the states should have the responsibility to accept political refugees because we have done it in the past. For example, in the Vietnam War, there were millions of Vietnamese refugees that flee from Communist rule. These refugees came to settle in almost every states in the US. The states that they came in the majority was California, Texas, and Seattle.  Because the United States foreign policy is to accept people who fled from persecution; so it is a matter of human rights and freedom that the United States obliged to. In fact, most of the United States citizens were once refugees or immigrants from foreing countries. Therefore, the states will have the responsibility to not turn down any refugees that flee from persecution.

2.  Should states intervene in other states alleviate refugee crisis?

It depends on the matter of available resources that each states have. If one states does not have enough resources to take care of the refugee, then the other states should intervene in helping.  I do not know of any policies that prevent one states from helping another states if it needs help.

3.  Should domestic political considerations such as electoral political shape the foreign policy of a state?

Electoral politics where we elect our representative by voting for them should have an effect on foreign policy because it depends on which representative we elect that support or do not support foreign policies. In electoral policies, it is the people that determine the fate of the foreign policy. If the people elect a representative that support a foreign policy, the foreign policy is strong. If the people elect a representative that does not support foreign policy, then the foreign policy is weak.
