FBI Investigating More than 300 Refugees for Potential Terrorist, AG Sessions Says
By Allan Lengel
To justify the latest travel ban involving Muslim countries, Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke Monday about the potential terror threat some refugees in the U.S. pose.
“[M]ore than 300 people who came here as refugees are under FBI investigation for potential terrorism-related activities,” Sessions said, according to CBS News.
He also said that those who are “seeking to support or commit terrorist attacks here will try to enter through our refugee program.”
Jeff Pegues of CBS noted in a website story that the officials will not say what countries these refugees came from, when they came to the U.S. or if their legal status changed since arriving here.
