The first Syrian refugees of the Jordan surge arrive in the U.S.
FOX's Jeff Monosso reports:
45-year-old Ahmad al-Abboud and his wife and five children were some of hundreds of thousands who fled Syria's civil war for Jordan, where they lived for three years before now being resettled in Kansas City Missouri where they arrived Wednesday as part of President Obama's speeded-up program to bring a minimum of 10,000 Syrian refugees here by September.
A vetting process that normally takes up to two years with stiff opposition from Republicans, who argue that terrorists are exploiting the program like ISIS terrorists involved in deadly attacks in Paris and Brussels.
