Press Release

WASHINGTON− Following the recent acts of terror that took place in Paris, Congressman Fleischmann released the following statement on the United States accepting Syrian refugees.

“In light of the horrendous attacks in Paris, I believe that we must halt our refugee program with Syria until the proper safeguards are in place.  The United States has a long and proud tradition of helping those in need, but this is no longer just a humanitarian crisis.  Our top priority must always be protecting the American people.”
