State Department spokesman John Kirby appeared on "Fox and Friends" this morning to weigh in on the vetting process for refugees coming to the United States.

Kirby said that any people coming to the U.S. from the war-torn Middle East are "stridently vetted" by the Department of Homeland Security and the intelligence community.

"They are going though a very serious inter-agency vetting process, the most that any refugee goes through," Kirby said. "Is it perfect? Can it be perfect? Can it be foolproof? Probably not. But it is very, very serious."

He also noted that eight out of ten Syrian refugees who have been admitted to the U.S. are women and children, and most of the men who make up the remainder are connected to families.

"I wouldn't debate the fact that there's potential for ISIS terrorists to try to insert themselves ... into the population, but again, the vetting process, while not perfect, is very, very stringent," Kirby said.

He revealed the State Department's goal is to admit 85,000 refugees from around the world in 2016, adding, "We're going to up the total number of refugees to more than 100,000 in fiscal year '17."
