Shelby: During these uncertain times around the world, we must have a strong military. I have always supported efforts to properly train and equip our men and women in uniform, and will continue to fight to protect the American homeland and its interests.
I would also put an immediate moratorium on Syrian refugees coming into the U.S. President Obama's refugee plan relies on a vetting system that does not do enough to ensure that terrorists are not infiltrating the system. I recently voted against the omnibus because it gave a blank check to the President to continue with his plans that I believe will put Americans in harm's way.
Lastly, I would stop the President's executive action on gun control. In order to ensure the safety of Americans, we must not allow for any action that takes away law-abiding citizens' right to protect themselves.
The federal government's Refugee Resettlement Act has failed America and its citizens. The outdated program--which pre-dates any recent acts of radical terrorism--allows refugees from the most radical nations to enter countries including the U.S. with little known about them. Among those refugees are those who would commit the most violent, deadly and extreme acts of terrorism.
Following those attacks my administration immediately took a long hard look at the federal government's Refugee Resettlement process. What we, and dozens of other states discovered, is unsettling and alarming. In an effort to reform the Refugee Resettlement Act, my administration filed suit last month against the federal government demanding the involvement of the states in this critical program.
A: Strongly support. America has a long-standing role in preserving peace and free travel in the world.
A: Agree. I believe we should act multilaterally, but the U.S. is best qualified to lead military efforts that we supply troops for.
