Governor Pence Stands By Decision to Suspend Resettlement of Syrian Refugees

Entry Description
INDIANAPOLIS – Following the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana’s announcement that it  filed suit to challenge Governor Pence’s decision to suspend the resettlement of Syrian refugees, spokeswoman Kara Brooks released the following statement. 

"Governor Pence took decisive action a week ago to put the safety and security of the people of Indiana first by suspending the state's participation in the resettlement of Syrian refugees. The governor is confident he has the authority to suspend the state's participation in the resettlement of Syrian refugees in Indiana and will not reverse course until the Administration and Congress take action to pause this program and implement measures necessary to address security gaps acknowledged by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security. 
"The governor believes that public safety is not a partisan issue. A bipartisan majority of governors have taken similar actions. Last week, the House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted to pause the entry of Syrian refugees until proper security screening measures are implemented.
"The governor believes that caution and compassion are not mutually exclusive. We can take measures to ensure the security of our nation even while we continue to extend support and refuge to people around the world fleeing from the ravages of hardship and war."
