In the aftermath of Thursday’s terrorist attack in France that left around 100 people dead or injured, one SC congressman took to Twitter to offer his suggestions for what should be done next.
Congressman Jeff Duncan, R-Laurens, tweeted that after the Nice, France, attack, America needs to halt plans to resettle thousands of refugees from the war in Syria, and “indefinitely suspend all forms of immigration” from “hotbeds of terrorism,” a similar proposal to GOP candidate Donald Trump’s calls to limit immigration that some fear would allow terrorists to covertly enter the United States.
For those already here, Duncan proposes President Barack Obama “immediately deport any non-citizens listed on a terror-watch list.”
The congressman’s tweets were critical of the Obama administration’s handling of terrorist issues to this point.

“We are at war w radical Islamic terrorism & yet the WH still hesitates to call them by name,” Duncan tweeted. “let alone, devise a plan to destroy them.”
