“The time has come to stop ter­ror­ists from walk­ing in our front door. My bill will press pause on new refugee en­trants from high-risk coun­tries un­til strin­gent new screen­ing pro­ce­dures are in place,” says Sen. Rand Paul.

The pres­i­den­tial hope­ful plans to in­tro­duce leg­is­la­tion that would sus­pend is­suance of visas to na­tion­als of coun­tries with a high ter­ror­ism risk un­til spe­cific pro­to­cols are ap­proved by Congress.

They would guar­an­tee that “aliens al­ready ad­mit­ted from high-risk coun­tries have been fin­ger­printed and screened, pose no ter­ror­ist risk, and are be­ing mon­i­tored for ter­ror­ist ac­tiv­ity,” and that “en­hanced se­cu­rity mea­sures are in place to screen fu­ture ap­pli­cants and pre­vent ter­ror­ists from en­ter­ing the coun­try.”
