“In light of the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris, I have joined other governors in demanding the refugee process be halted until it is guaranteed to provide the security demanded by Wyoming and United States citizens,” Mead continued. “I have written the President to make it known Wyoming will not accept a lackluster system that allows terrorists to slip through the cracks.”
