In a breaking news story, President Donald Trump has indicated that he is considering allowing states to decide whether or not they want to accept Syrian refugees in the future.
Trump indicated that he fully plans to temporarily ban refugees from entering this country until we figure out what is going on, but he has argued that states should be able to decide whether or not they want to accept Syrian refugees after they completed the vetting programs.
Trump told supporters at a rally in Minneapolis that the U.S. would “not admit any refugees without the support of the local community where they are being placed.”
Trump cited the September knife attack in a St. Cloud mall as he warned about the risks posed by radicalized immigrants. And he again singled out the Somali population, which in the past has condemned Trump’s comments.
He says, “Here, in Minnesota, you’ve seen firsthand the problems caused with faulty refugee vetting, with large numbers of Somali refugees coming into your state without your knowledge, without your support or approval and with some then joining ISIS and spreading their extremist views all over our county and all over the world.”
Trump has vowed to stop admitting immigrants from “terror-prone regions” until new, more intense vetting mechanisms are put into place.
This is a bold move from President Trump. Do you agree?
