President Obama is calling for more openness to refugees in the aftermath of the Brussels terror attacks, urging Americans to continue leading by “example” when it comes to immigration policy.
“As we move forward in this fight, we have to wield another weapon alongside our airstrikes, our military, and our counterterrorism work, and our diplomacy. And that’s the power of our example,” the president said in his weekly address on Saturday.
“Our openness to refugees fleeing ISIL’s violence, our determination to win the battle against ISIL’s hateful and violent propaganda, a distorted view of Islam that aims to radicalize young Muslims to their cause.”
But “who’s going to live with the consequences of that?” Tucker Carlson asked on Fox and Friends Weekend, noting that the president has a relatively comfortable life ahead of him after finishing his term.
“He’ll never face the consequences of this, and yet the rest of us will.”
Obama's remarks come as 4 Americans have been confirmed dead in the Brussels terror attacks.
“What Americans also get frustrated with, those of us that understand there’s a war that’s been set upon us, are being told that we’re the problem, that we’re to blame, that we’re bringing this on ourselves,” said Pete Hegseth.
