Our top priority needs to be the protection and safety of our nation. We are facing threats at home and abroad. ISIS is a real threat to the United States; it is not the JV team Obama says it is. We must do everything we can to protect our nation and prevent a major attack on U.S. soil. Recent attacks in Europe highlight how important it is to thoroughly vet refugees attempting to enter the United States. We should pause our acceptance of Syrian and Iraqi refugees until a system is put in place to make absolutely certain there are no terrorists slipping through the cracks and entering our nation.

Our enemies abroad have taken advantage of Obama's weaknesses. I opposed the nuclear deal with Iran from day one. It is irresponsible to allow a nation that chants "Death to America" and calls for the destruction of our ally Israel to conduct nuclear research. That is why I have voted against this deal. We need to reverse the Iran nuclear deal before they get their hands on a nuclear weapon.
