Trey Gowdy Supports President Trump In His Vetting Policy
President Trump surprised liberals with his executive orders probably because they thought he’d go milder on the serious questions. They also believed that he won’t dare to sign anything similar. But, the President did, and he did it right. We’re living in the best time of our country which proves that we chose well.
Every President is obliged to protect his people and his country. Today’s world is a dangerous place to live in, and hopefully that’s about to change, at least in our country. This is an excellent beginning, and the best is yet to come.
President Trump’s executive orders brought the attention of everyone, and now Gowdy has something to say on this topic.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (SC-04) issued a statement following President Trump’s executive orders on extreme vetting:
“Our nation has a long and rich history of welcoming those fleeing persecution. We also have a long and rich history of liberating those suffering under oppression. We are the most welcoming and generous country in the world, and we are a country of immigrants.
The world we find ourselves in is dangerous and becoming increasingly so. Since national security and public safety are the preeminent functions of government, there is a fundamental duty to ensure the necessary background investigations can be done to stop anyone intent on doing harm from exploiting Americans’ generosity and taking more innocent lives.
American people deserve border and interior security. They deserve to know who is coming to our country, for what purpose, and for how long. They deserve to be assured those seeking entry into the country – regardless of the length of stay – have been vetted thoroughly and do not represent a security risk.
I am committed to doing everything we can to keep Americans safe just as I am committed to defending religious liberty and providing refuge to those fleeing persecution.”
