NHGOP BLASTS VAN OSTERN’S AND CONNOLLY’S SUPPORT FOR MORE SYRIAN REFUGEES

 

Concord – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding gubernatorial candidates Colin Van Ostern’s and Mark Connolly’s radical support for more Syrian refugees following the Paris terrorist attacks:
 
“The threat posed by ISIS is real, and the Director of the FBI has acknowledged that we do not have enough information to effectively vet Syrian refugees. Colin Van Ostern’s and Mark Connolly’s support for accepting more Syrian refugees in New Hampshire proves that they care more about pleasing the extreme, far left wing of their party than protecting public safety.
 
“Councilor Van Ostern’s and Mark Connolly’s out-of-touch positions are so radical that they are even to the left of liberal Governor Maggie Hassan on this important national security issue. Granite Staters deserve leaders that will make public safety a priority, not partisan politicians like Colin Van Ostern and Mark Connolly that are more interested in carrying President Obama’s water than keeping New Hampshire safe.”
 
Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal reported that an unvetted man posing as a Syrian refugee was in part responsible for the barbaric Paris terrorist attacks.
