Senator Joni Ernst • Stop Importing Syrian Refugees

November 18th, 2015 • iizthatiiz

Iowa Senator Joni Ernst has little confidence in the Obama administration’s ability to thoroughly vet Syrian refugees.

The Iraqi war veteran is calling for a halt to Obama’s plan to import potential terrorists into the United States until, and if safeguards can be put in place.

Ernst points out that a immigration halt is not unprecedented, “This was done after 9/11”, the Senator said.

While calling for an immediate pause to allow Syrian refugees to enter the U.S., Ernst also points out that “a pause can be indefinite.”


Joni Ernst 11-18-15“The reason we have these refugees is because of the failed policy in the Middle East. We have a president that doesn’t have a clearly communicated strategy.”

“For the president to take a pause, he would then be admitting that he has failed in the Middle East.”


Ernst is confident that a number of Senate Democrats will join in efforts to halt President Obama’s plans.
