Attorney General Fox’s Statement Regarding Syrian Resettlement Plan

Montana Attorney General Tim Fox has issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s Syrian resettlement plan:

“Our nation has a rich heritage of welcoming refugees and our hearts go out to those fleeing the disruption of their homeland. However, security experts at every level are expressing grave concerns because, as federal law enforcement officials have admitted, it is nearly impossible to screen out terrorists hidden amongst the legitimate refugees seeking asylum in the United States. As Attorney General, the safety and security of Montanans is my primary responsibility. We must acknowledge that there are serious security risks since most of these individuals have no documented backgrounds to check and no records to screen. The Obama Administration’s Syrian resettlement plan is simply inadequate to ensure the safety of Americans and Montanans.”
