Discussing Syrian Refugees

I was on ABC 10 News to talk about Syrian Refugees:

U.C. Davis law professor Karima Bennoune said families allowed in to the United States are put through an extensive background check. She said the one Paris attacker with a Syrian passport was almost certainly not a refugee, but from Europe like the other terrorists.

“Only one of the suspected perpetrators that we now know of was carrying this allegedly fake Syrian passport and all of them may well have been sort of home-grown,” Bennoune said. “We really have to step up and show generosity and courage and leadership while, indeed, taking the security issue seriously.”
