Congressman Brad Wenstrup (R-Cincinnati) released the following statement on the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the United States:
 
“At this point in time, the United States should move to indefinitely suspend the admittance of Syrian refugees. It is impossible to properly vet these individuals with any degree of confidence to permit resettlement into the United States.

“All involved, I believe, are better served with an established safe haven in their own region. More so, the root cause for fleeing one’s homeland cannot be ignored.
 
“This is not an indictment of the millions of suffering refugees displaced by the brutality of ISIS and Assad. It is an abundance of caution recognizing the depravity of ISIS fighters who would disguise their intentions to cross our border and carry out future attacks. Our first responsibility is to successfully protect our nation.”
