Statement from Indiana Governor

This is a statement from Indianian Congressmen Pete Visclosky on the Governor
blocking Syrian refugees.

“As the Ranking Member on the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, I am keenly aware of the serious threats facing our nation, and I strongly support efforts to properly vet all refugees admitted to our county for security reasons.  I also firmly believe that solely basing admission decisions on an individual’s country of origin or their religion is unacceptable and inconsistent with our country’s values.  The 4 million Syrians who have already fled their country as refugees and the 7 million Syrians currently displaced within their country is a humanitarian crisis of staggering proportions.”
