House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes released the following statement today on the Trump Administration’s executive order on refugees:

“Based on my studies of this issue during numerous trips abroad related to intelligence matters, I’ve stated repeatedly that refugee flows from certain war-torn regions pose a serious national security threat to the United States. In light of attempts by jihadist groups to infiltrate fighters into refugee flows to the West, along with Europe’s tragic experience coping with this problem, the Trump Administration’s executive order on refugees is a common-sense security measure to prevent terror attacks on the homeland. While accommodations should be made for green card holders and those who’ve assisted the U.S. armed forces, this is a useful temporary measure on seven nations of concern until we can verify who is entering the United States.”
