Homeland chair: 'Serious mistake' to resettle Syrian refugees in US
by Martin Matishak
The head of the House Homeland Security Committee says an Obama administration plan to resettle Syrian refugees in the U.S. is a "serious mistake" and should be stopped until safeguards are in place.
"We have no way... to know who these people are and so I think bringing them in is a serious mistake," Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) said during a Christian Science Monitor breakfast on Thursday.
McCaul said the U.S. has "no intelligence footprint or capability" inside Syria to ensure refugees mean no harm.
