Jindal: Reform Immigration Rules To Exclude Islamic Radicals
by Neil Munro
U.S. citizenship rules should be updated to exclude Islamic radicals, such as the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, says potential 2016 candidate Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
"It is common sense to say we're going to prioritize [among immigrants], and if you say you want to be American… we're going to prioritize you over someone who doesn't want to be American," he said at an March 16 event hosted by the American Action Forum.
"The Islamic State I believe is pretty unambiguous… they are terroristic thugs," he said. "It would be absolutely reasonable" to exclude former members of the Islamic State, Jindal said.
