Ben Carson Calls For Strict Background Checks On Syrian Immigrants

Republican presidential hopeful, Ben Carson, was interviewed on Sunday by ABC's "This Week," where he discussed the screening process for Syrian migrants. He said, “I would recognize that bringing in people from the Middle East right now carries extra danger. And we have to be extra cautious. You know, the typical mechanisms that we use for screening people, perhaps, have to be enhanced. How does it, you know, let people like the Tsarnaev brothers in here?” This isn't the first time that Carson has called for stringent background checks on Syrian migrants attempting to enter the country.

On Saturday, Carson stated “We have to recognize that this is a splendid opportunity for the global jihadists to infiltrate those numbers with members of their own organization. So we would have to have in place a very excellent screening mechanism. Until we had such a mechanism in place, we should not be bringing anyone in.” President Obama has recently pledged to accept 10,000 Syrian migrants into the U.S. Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev immigrated with their family to the U.S. in 2002 and were granted refugee status. The brothers then Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev immigrated with their family to the U.S. in 2002 and were granted refugee status.
