Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson said Sunday that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's move to expedite the process for Syrian refugees seeking asylum has him worried terrorists may be embedded among the refugees who then seek to enter the United States.
"And on average, prior to this program, it would take about 62 months for Canada to properly vet a refugee," Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee said Sunday on "The Cats Roundtable"
on AM 970 in New York.
"Now they're going to triple the number they're going to let in, and they're going to do it in less than 12 months. So, yeah, I’m a little concerned that maybe Islamic terrorists could infiltrate that flow of refugees and then come across that very porous northern border."
Still, Johnson said, the biggest threat to the United States is the southern border with Mexico.
"Well, certainly our greatest threat really is what we call 'special-interest aliens' coming in from South and Central America coming through our porous southern border, but our northern border is probably more porous," he told host John Catsimatidis.
"The dangers we face in this world are growing," Johnson said. "All of this is occurring because of President Obama's feckless foreign policy."
