Price Backs Plan to Strengthen State Control Over Refugees

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Tom Price, M.D. (GA-06) issued the following statement after cosponsoring a bill (H.R. 4032) that guarantees every state's right to refuse Syrian refugees:

"ISIS has declared war on the Western world and they will stop at nothing, even using our generosity and compassion against us. Common sense tells us that States should have the right not to engage in the Refugee Resettlement program. A majority of States have already announced they will not participate. The administration is telling them that they do not have that choice. It is imperative that Congress ensure our states are able to exercise this right. President Obama is unwilling to listen to the desire of our Governors and insists on going ahead with admitting 10,000 refugees, despite the FBI Director saying that we do not have the time or resources necessary to adequately screen them. That is unacceptable."
