Chris Christie: No Syrian Refugees, Not Even Orphans

Monday on the “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Republican presidential candidate Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said he would not allow any Syrian refugees into America even “orphans under the age of five.”

Christie said, “I don’t trust this administration to effectively vet the people who are purposing to be come in, in order to protect  the safety and security of the American people so I would not permit them in.”

Hewitt asked, “What if they were orphans under the age of five?”

Christie replied, “You know Hugh, we could come up with eighteen different scenarios. The fact is, that we need for appropriate vetting and I don’t think orphans under five should be admitted into the United States at this point. They have no family here. How are we going to care for these folks? The fact is, you could come up with a number of different scenarios Hugh,” explained Christie. “But in the end, I don’t trust this administration to effectively vet the people that they are asking us to take in. We need to put the safety and security of the American people first.”
