“Many citizens have asked if Tulsa is accepting Syrian refugees. I want to let you know that I’m currently drafting a letter to President Obama urging him not to accept any more Syrian refugees into our country and we should have never allowed this to begin with. We must protect our borders during this critical time for the safety of our citizens. Although I have no authority over the matter, I wanted to share my position with President Obama and let you know the importance I’m placing on this issue to keep Tulsa’s security and safety in line.”
Many Americans have become very concerned with reports of Syrian refugees making their way into the country. Especially after hearing reports during a U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing last week, FBI Director James Comey said there is a risk bringing anybody in from the outside, but especially from a conflict zone like Syria. And that they had no sure way of knowing of the background because there is no background database to check.
