Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX), who has been pushing legislation since 2015 to pause the UN-led refugee resettlement program, issued the following statement today applauding President Trump’s updated executive order to prevent foreign terrorists from entering the United States:

“As someone who has been pushing for a suspension of refugees from terrorist hotspots for over a year and a half, I commend the President and his Administration for issuing a new executive order that further enhances America’s national security.  This updated executive order will help prevent terrorists from entering the United States while leading to a stronger vetting system.  It also closes potential loopholes so that it may not be manipulated by activist federal judges.  As elected officials, we have no higher duty than to ensure the safety and security of the American people.  I applaud the President for making America’s safety a top priority as we cannot allow our refugee and immigration programs to serve as a ‘Trojan Horse’ threat to the American people.”
