Rep. Bishop asks FBI Director Comey about vetting of Syrian refugees - 10/22/15

November 16, 2015

During a House Judiciary Committee hearing with FBI Director James Comey in October, Congressman Mike Bishop (MI-08) voiced concerns about the vetting of Syrian refugees who wish to enter the United States, specifically the state of Michigan. Director Comey told Rep. Bishop that while the intelligence community has “gotten better at querying our holdings,” there is little to no data on many of their refugees – which means the vetting process is not “risk-free.”
