Congressman Turner released the following statement after sending a letter to Mayor Whaley to rescind her offer to accept Syrian refugees in Dayton, Ohio.

“I call on Mayor Whaley to listen to the concerns of the greater Dayton community and rescind her invitation to accept Syrian refugees to our region.  The intelligence community has repeatedly stated the United States is unable to perform proper and thorough background checks on these refugees. While Dayton is a welcoming city, we must prioritize the safety and security of our community in the wake of the deadly attacks in Paris, France.”

On September 29th, Congressman Turner sent a letter to the President denouncing Mayor Whaley’s request for Dayton to become a relocation site for Syrian refugees.
