Press Release: November 18, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Representative Mark Sanford released the following statement in support of suspending plans to admit Syrian and Iraqi refugees into the United States:

“I think we need to press the pause button on the resettlement of Syrian and Iraqi refugees in the United States until we can put the necessary measures and protocols in place to vet them. This is not an irreversible course but a prudent step, given the plausibility of ISIS members infiltrating refugee populations as a way to come into America. The President’s plan to plow ahead is tone deaf and is at odds with what I am hearing both in Congress and at home. For this reason, I have signed on as a cosponsor to both the Babin and McCaul-Hudson bills designed to stop domestic resettlement activities here in America until the American public can be assured that allowing refugees to enter the country does not wind up meaning allowing ISIS to do so.”
