Congressman Fleischmann on refugee executive order

Chattanooga, Tenn. (WDEF) — Congressman Chuck Fleischmann issued a statement on President Trump’s recent executive action.

His statement reads: “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.”

Fleischmann represents Tennessee’s 3rd district in the US House of Representatives.
