STATEMENT: Fleischmann on Executive Order
The following statement can be attributed to Congressman Chuck Fleischmann:
“Keeping our country and its citizens safe will always be my top priority. The United States of America has a very proud tradition of welcoming immigrants and refugees, however, we are living in an unprecedented time. Many foreign governments, like Syria, are falling apart. This is hindering our ability to properly vet those who wish to enter our country. President Trump’s Executive Order wisely presses pause on the process until we are confident about these individuals’ backgrounds. There have been some flaws in implementation, and it is my hope the Administration will work to fix them immediately,” said Fleischmann.
