RELEASE: PRICE STATEMENT ON H.R. 4038
"Syrian refugees already face a higher barrier to entry than all other immigrants to the United States. Each refugee is thoroughly vetted and interviewed by the U.S. military, intelligence community, and diplomatic corps before he or she is permitted to travel to the United States, a process that takes an average of 18 months, and the federal government continues oversight of all refugees for years after they are resettled. I welcome credible recommendations for strengthening these vetting procedures, but I will not support efforts to end refugee resettlement altogether."
