Mr. Speaker, ISIS has vowed to takes its murderous Islamic jihad to America. There are ISIS fighters already here and more on the way. Meanwhile, the President wants to add thousands more unvetted Syrian refugees to the mix, this when his own FBI Director says the Federal Government cannot effectively conduct proper security checks on these Syrian nationals.
Over half of the State Governors have refused to take refugees because of the inability to fully vet them. But the administration says States have to take the refugees, whether they like it or not.
The law says the Federal Government must ``consult'' with States regarding refugee resettlement, but it is unclear if they can be rejected by the States. That is why I have introduced the States' Right of Refugee Refusal Act. This bill gives State Governors the choice to accept refugees or not.
Let's resolve this now with legislation, not lawsuits. We don't have years to wait for the courts to decide. Meanwhile, let's ramp up aid to Syrian refugee camps overseas and encourage our Middle Eastern allies like the Saudi Arabians to step up and help.
The ISIS threat is not a myth.
And that is just the way it is.CLICK HERE TO WATCH
