Chris Christie Letter to Obama: No More Syrian Refugees for New Jersey

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie sent a letter to President Obama informing him that he would not accept any more Syrian refugees into the state.

“The threat posed to New Jersey by ISIS is very real,” he said. “I write to inform you that I will not accept any refugees from Syria in the wake of the deadly terrorist attack in Paris.”

Christie detailed in the letter congressional testimony from FBI Director James Comey explaining that it was very difficult to properly conduct security checks on nationals coming from Syria.

“I urge you to halt your plans to accept more Syrian refugees in the United States,” Christie wrote to Obama. “I have no doubt that ISIS will try to exploit American humanitarianism to expose Americans to similar deadly risk.”

Christie detailed his thoughts on the issue of Syrian refugees in an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt last night.

He explained that it was important to stop accepting Syrian refugees, even if the person was a five-year old orphan.

“I do not trust this administration to effectively vet the people who are proposed to be coming in,” he said.

According to new data from the State Department, about 75 Syrian refugees have settled in New Jersey in 2015.
