(CNSNews.com) – The Obama administration’s plan to bring thousands of Syrian refugees into the U.S. should be defunded, according to Newt Gingrich. The former House Speaker says Congress “should cut off the funding and say – absolutely no.”
Gingrich made the comments while appearing on WMAL’s Mornings on The Mall radio program on Tuesday.
“This is a clear case where Congress should cut off the funding and say – absolutely no -we’re not going to allow the president to spend taxpayer money bringing in people who may well be terrorists,” Gingrich said.
“Let’s start with the number one fact about the Paris attack –there were eight terrorists who killed 129 people and wounded over 300 – eight.”
