“The safety and security of America’s citizens is our top priority”
FORT WAYNE, IND – Indiana Third Congressional District candidate and Indiana State Senator, Liz Brown, offered the following statement on Ind. Gov. Mike Pence’s decision this week to suspend the refugee settlement program:
“The safety and security of America’s citizens is our top priority. Gov. Pence’s decision to suspend the refugee settlement in Indiana until serious security concerns are addressed is prudent. Our federal government needs to offer infallible assurances that anyone seeking refugee status has no terrorist ties and no intent to harm American citizens.
“The Paris attacks demonstrate that ISIS is determined to take lives and disrupt Western civilization. ISIS has grown under President Obama’s watch and clearly is not contained. We need leaders in Washington who are ready to stand up to these perpetrators of evil.”
