Congressman Collins: “We will not make the U.S. vulnerable to attack”

WASHINGTON—“There are an extraordinary number of men, women, and children from the Middle East who are being forced to flee their homes because of ISIS. However, we cannot put our national security at risk by waiving through hundreds of thousands of people from countries ruled by terrorist organizations, who would pose a threat to Americans on American soil. The terrorist attack in Paris on Friday could have happened here. Turning a blind eye to the President’s plan to allow 10,000 refugees from Syria next year will only make us more vulnerable to attacks, possibly carried out by those we let in willingly. Until the U.S. can put a rigorous screening process in place, I support suspending admission to refugees from those countries.”
