In the wake of news coming to light that at least one of the Islamic terrorists involved with the Paris, France terror attacks was a Syrian refugee, gubernatorial candidate Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) said the prospects of Syrian mass migration to the United States must stop.
“President Obama’s plan to bring 10,000 Syrian refugees to the U.S. – just like his statement made a day before the Paris attacks that ISIS was ‘contained’ — is outrageous and irresponsible,” Vitter said in a statement today. “That’s exactly how at least one, maybe more of the Paris terrorists got there. These Syrians have already started arriving in Louisiana. That needs to stop immediately, and I will continue to lead that fight and protect the people of Louisiana.”
Vitter, of course, is referring to the Hayride‘s breaking report more than a week ago that Syrian refugees had began coming to New Orleans and that many more were expected to arrive in the coming months.
Vitter, who has been staunchly fighting illegal immigration and sanctuary cities in the state like New Orleans and Lafayette Parish, took to Facebook yesterday to say that as governor he will shut down sanctuary cities.
Here’s the full statement from Vitter:
After yesterday’s devastating terror attacks, we cannot forget the importance of protecting ourselves here at home. Obama wants to let 10,000 Syrian refugees into the U.S., and a lot of them are already coming into Louisiana. I want to make sure that the people entering our country are exactly who they say they are – not ISIS terrorists.
That’s why when I’m Governor, I will put common sense back into our immigration policies – starting with bolstering our immigration enforcement and shutting down sanctuary cities. I am committed to keeping us safe here at home.
New Orleans, as the Hayride exclusively reported, is not the only city that could see a mass migration of Syrian refugees. According to a Migrant and Refugee Services (MRS) directory obtained by the Hayride, there are 180 cities in the US that could see an influx.
In Louisiana, Baton Rouge, Metairie and Lafayette are all on that list to potentially receive Syrian refugees.
Also, in a special report by the Hayride, the impacts of mass migration of migrants from the Muslim world into the US is outlined in detail.
Our report shows how welfare grows, terrorist alerts become common and changing demographics become a reality when mass migration has hit other US states like Minnesota.
