Walorski Statement on Immigration Executive Order
MISHAWAKA, Ind. – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today released the following statement on President Trump’s executive order temporarily suspending travel from several countries where terrorism poses a high threat:
“The United States has an important role to play in addressing the humanitarian crisis and establishing stability in the Middle East, but the safety and security of the American people must be our first priority.
“The temporary suspension of the refugee program and admission of individuals from countries where terrorism poses an elevated threat will allow our national security officials to examine the vetting process and strengthen safeguards to prevent terrorists from entering our homeland.
“I hope the administration provides greater clarity in the coming days on its implementation of the order and its review of vetting procedures.”
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
