Congressman Collins Calls for Tougher Refugee Vetting Process on Fox Business


 Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Doug Collins appeared on “The Intelligence Report” with Trish Regan on Fox Business to discuss H.R. 4731, the Refugee Program Integrity Restoration Act, of which he is an original cosponsor. The legislation, which passed out of the House Judiciary Committee last week, strengthens the refugee vetting process, empowers state and local governments to determine if refugees should be resettled in their communities, and gives Congress, not the Executive branch, the authority to set caps on how many refugees will be allowed into the United States. In light of yesterday’s terrorist attacks in Brussels, it is more important than ever to reform our refugee system to protect the United States from groups like ISIS who would seek to abuse the system in order to get in to the United States.
