Obama hurting refugees by threatening to veto increased screening measures

DENVER–Today, President Obama threatened to veto a measure to increase screening for refugees being relocated to the United States calling them unnecessary and impractical.

Advancing Colorado Executive Director Jonathan Lockwood released the following statement:

“Our lawless president is ridiculously risking American lives to force his agenda of appeasement and political correctness, despite the very clear security threats at hand. No one believes the president or our governor anymore, and they have lost all credibility on the issue of safety and national security. Additionally, it should be noted that blind politicians are also hurting the refugees they’re pretending to care about. They are jeopardizing any and all relief, by standing in the way of common sense security measures everyone can at least agree on. Concern over our safety is not a partisan issue, but they’re doing everything within their power to make it one.”
