Cher Blasts U.S. for Unsafe Vetting Process for Syrian Refugees

Los Angeles, CA

Singer and actress Cher spoke out on Twitter against the vetting process for mass immigration from Islamic countries to the United States.

Cher took to Twitter to express her support for plans to strengthen a U.S. visa waiver program following last month’s Paris terror attacks.

Expressing concerns that the current visa waiver program makes it easy for Islamic State militants and other terrorists to travel to the United States, Cher tweeted:

In another tweet, the singer said she offered to take a refugee family into her home, but could not, as the current visa waiver program could not vet them.

After facing criticism over the tweets, Cher wanted to make clear that she has “stood” for the “downtrodden.” But the singer then announced she would “lay low.”

UPDATE: Cher has deleted her original tweet that was critical of the U.S. vetting process for Syrian refugees.
