Houston, TX- "I fully support Governor Greg Abbott's request to withdraw Texas from the Refugee Resettlement Program,"said Congressman Ted Poe. "My bill, H.R. 4197, the State Refugee Security Act guarantees that states can withdraw from the program upon request from their governor. The reality is that ISIS has vowed to attack America. It is dangerous and irresponsible to let thousands of refugees in to this country when FBI Director Comey admitted we cannot properly vet them. Until the federal government can conduct thorough security screenings and confirm that there are no security risks, states should to be able to protect their citizens by withdrawing from participation in this program."
