VIA| President Obama is facing more backlash than ever in his plans to bring in Syrian refugees after the FBI arrested two refugees on charges of terrorism.
The two refugees, Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, 23, and Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, 24, were arrested in California and Houston, respectively. Both of these refugee turned terrorists were originally from Iraq.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was one of many who began furiously debating the issue, once again.
“I once again urge the President to halt the resettlement of these refugees in the United States until there is an effective vetting process that will ensure refugees do not compromise the safety of Americans and Texans,” he said.
Ted Cruz is demanding that all of the refugees currently in America be re-vetted.
House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul put forth his concerns as well. “While I commend the FBI for their hard work, these arrests heighten my concern that our refugee program is susceptible to exploitation by terrorists.”
Before these arrests, many were against Obama’s plan. However, now Obama is facing an overwhelming amount of backlash. There’s no way his plan goes through. Should we deny entrance to Syrian Refugees?
