Interview Highlights

– On the United States accepting Syrian refugees: ““I, as the governor of Ohio, have written to the president and to the Congress saying ‘No, this is time to take the pause.’ We don’t know who these people are, and we know that many of them in Syria, who represent these radicals, are intent on infiltrating us. And until we can have an effective way to determine who they are, then we ought to take a pause. It would be a big mistake for the president to move forward on this.”
