“Our nation has always been welcoming, but we cannot let terrorists take advantage of our compassion,” Ryan (R-Wis.) said after emerging from a closed door meeting for House Republicans. Ryan said:

This is a moment where it’s better to be safe than to be sorry.

So we think the prudent, the responsible things take a pause in this particular aspect of this refugee program in order to verify that terrorists are not trying to infiltrate the refugee population.

In the end, the ultimate solution to this crisis, is a strategy to defeat ISIS. All of this rises above politics. This is not about politics, this is about national security. And so we will invite all of our colleagues, Republicans and Democrats, to work with us quickly to address the urgent nature of this situation.
