Cassidy: Stop Obama’s Syrian Refugee Plan

WASHINGTON –  U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) released the following statement on the resettlement of Syrian refugees in Louisiana:

“The President has zero credibility when he claims Syrian refugees will be screened. He’s ignoring the genocide of Christians and other religious groups, and still refuses to say ‘radical Islam.’ Hours before the attacks in Paris he said ISIS is contained, minimizing the seriousness of the threat they pose. Top FBI officials said there’s no way to adequately screen all the Syrian refugees the Obama administration plans to accept into the U.S. Given these circumstances, I agree with Governor Jindal’s executive order halting President Obama’s plan.”
