Rep. Rodney Davis Supports SAFE act

Posted:

Washington D.C.- Republican Congressman Rodney Davis cast a vote in support of the American Security Against Foreign Enemies (SAFE) Act to ensure comprehensive background checks are conducted on every refugee from Syria and Iraq seeking admittance into the United States. Congressman Davis says our first priority must be protecting the American people against possible terrorist attacks.” “The president’s own advisors have warned of gaps within our screening process and ISIS’s ability to infiltrate Syrian refugees. I hope President Obama will reconsider his threat to veto this important legislation and instead work with us to ensure Americans’ safety. The SAFE Act allows America to continue its history of compassion toward those around the world without sacrificing our safety and security.” President Obama has stated that he plans to move forward with his plan to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next year. Since 2012, the United States has admitted 1,854 Syrian refugees.
