Rep. Jim Jordan: President Trump’s Executive Order Barring Refugees From Entering the US Is Common Sense

Audio clip:

“I am fine with the executive order. Hindsight is wonderful. We could always roll things out better, I am not going to disagree with that but look, this is consistent with what we told the voters we were going to do. This is consistent with just good common sense and frankly it’s very consistent with legislation we passed a little over a year ago that 47 democrats supported but President Obama said he was going to veto – and all that legislation said is before we let people come into this country, let’s double check and make sure they are not affiliated with some terrorist organization like ISIS. After all, remember ISIS said they are actively trying to exploit our refugee laws and get bad people into this country, evil people into this country, who are going to do us harm so I just view this as common sense.”

—Rep. Jordan on President Trump’s executive order barring refugees from seven countries from entering the United States
