Reps. Ken Buck, Jared Polis vote to restrict Syrian refugees
“ISIS has declared war on the world,” Buck said in a news release following the vote. “Our first priority is keeping Americans safe, which is what this bill does. We must put a hold on all Syrian refugee resettlement until we can determine how to ensure Americans’ safety.”
In the release, Buck urged Obama to sign the bill.
“I urge President Obama to sign this legislation immediately, because Americans should spend the Thanksgiving holiday celebrating our blessings in this country, not worrying about terrorist attacks.”
