Ben Carson Fears Global Jihadists Are Hiding Among Muslim Refugees

Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson said that U.S. must conduct thorough background checks on all Syrian refugees before letting them in to our country. Carson warned in an NPR interview that terrorists could be hiding among the thousands of refugees seeking entrance to the U.S. He added that until such mass screenings can take place, no refugees should be allowed into the country.

“We have to recognize that this is a splendid opportunity for global jihadists to infiltrate those numbers with members of their own organization,” Carson said. “So we would have to have in place a very excellent screening mechanism. Until we had such a mechanism in place, we should not bring anybody in.”
