DHS Secretary Dodges On Syrian Refugees Representing No Risk To America

During a Senate Homeland Security Committee Hearing, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) asked Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, if the 10,000 Syrian refugees admitted into America ‘represented no risk.’

“I’m satisfied and comfortable that we put a lot on this process, with a lot of additional security, a lot of additional person power, and I know for a fact an awful lot of the ten thousand are families – women and children who are fleeing violence, fleeing terrorism,” Secretary Johnson told Sen. Johnson.

Secretary Johnson concluded by saying the Syrian refugees “will be honest, hardworking people in this country.”

In Secretary Johnson, answer, however, he never stated that these Syrian refugees indeed do not represent a risk to America.
