Hill Statement on Governor Hutchinson’s Decision to Deny Syrian Refugees Asylum in Arkansas

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman French Hill (AR-2) released the following statement in response to Governor Asa Hutchinson’s announcement on Syrian refugees:

“I support the Governor’s decision for now to deny asylum to Syrian refugees in Arkansas. America needs to offer aid and support other humanitarian efforts to those seeking a life free of persecution. However, in light of Friday’s attacks in Paris and recent threats against our Nation’s capital, a plan to accept 10,000 refugees from a country with such deep ties to ISIS without a proven and effective screening process could create a substantial threat to the safety and security of the American people.”
