President Obama says the terrorist attacks on Paris will not change the United State’s plan to take in Syrian Refugees

Off The Grid

After the recent terrorist attacks on Paris that left over 100 people dead, many are questioning whether or not the U.S. should allow Syrian refuges into the country. Governors of Alabama, Michigan, Texas and Arkansas even announced that their states would no longer resettle Syrian refugees because of security concerns.

But President Obama said that the events would not affect America’s intake of Syrian refugees. “Slamming the door in their faces would be a betrayal of our values,” he said during remarks at the G20 economic summit in Antalya, Turkey.
