Ben Rhodes: The U.S. is still planning to take refugees from Syria

On Sunday, White House Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes insisted that the administration’s plans remain on course.

“We’re still planning on taking in Syrian refugees,” Rhodes said on “Fox News Sunday.” “We had very robust vetting procedures for those refugees.”

“There are women and children, orphans of this war, and I think we need to do our part along with our allies to provide them a safe haven.”

It’s clear, however, that the plan will face new opposition from Congress in light of Friday night’s carnage.
