TALLAHASSEE, FL (WFLA) – Florida Governor Rick Scott sent a letter to Washington DC stating that Florida Department of Children and Families will not support the relocation of 425 possible Syrian refugees to Florida following the terror attacks in Paris.
The letter read in part:
“Following the terrorist attacks by ISIS in Paris that killed over 120 people and wounded more than 350, and the news that at least one of the terror attack suspects gained access to France by posing as a Syrian refugee, our state agency will not support the requests we have received.”
Gov. Scott also requested the federal funding for the 425 refugees to be cut unless “the risk these individuals may pose to our national security” is extensively evaluated.
