Smith Supports President’s Action to Keep Terrorists from Entering the U.S.
Washington, DC – Congressman Lamar Smith (R-TX) issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s new executive order to protect Americans from potential terrorists and criminals with stricter vetting of refugees and immigrants.
Rep. Smith: “I appreciate President Trump’s continued commitment to protect innocent Americans from those who enter the United States. I support this order that places short-term limits on the admission of new refugees and temporary immigrants from six nations deemed a security threat. This policy ensures that the government has the procedures and information in place to properly vet certain foreign nationals who seek to come to our country.”
