Carson: If CA Attacker Passed Vetting, It ‘Should End the Conversation’ About Refugees

Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson argued that if one of the perpetrators of the San Bernardino attack passed background checks, that should end the conversation” about Syrian refugees and President Obama’s agenda “is not to protect the American people” on Friday’s “Sean Hannity Show.”

Carson stated that if there were extensive background checks done on Tashfeen Malik when she received a K-1 visa, “that should end the conversation” about Syrian refugees. He added, “It hasn’t, because obviously, they have an agenda. If that doesn’t end the conversation, they have an agenda, and that agenda has nothing with protection of the American people.”

Carson further said that he believes the president’s agenda “is not to protect the American people.”

He also argued the US should ask imams and clerics “to help to find the difference between the Muslims who are incorporating themselves into American society and accepting our values, and the ones who are not.”
