Congressman Walberg: “common sense to pause Syrian refugee admissions”

(WLNS) – Congressman Tim Walberg voted for the bill to pause the flow of refugees coming into the U.S.

Congressman Walberg says the U.S. needs to address the root cause of the Syrian refugee crisis and criticized the Obama administration’s foreign policy in the Middle East.

He released a statement Thursday, saying, “Michigan has a long and rich tradition as a welcoming state, and we can provide humanitarian assistance while at the same time prioritizing the safety of our citizens.”

Congressman Walberg went on to say, “it is common sense to pause Syrian refugee admissions until a thorough review of our security processes is conducted. We need absolute certainty that rigorous vetting procedures are in place and enhanced safety measures are taken to protect the people of Michigan and all Americans. Ultimately, we need a plan to address the root cause of the refugee crisis—the President’s failed foreign policy in the region—and develop a strategy to destroy, not merely try to contain, ISIS.”
