Christie Uses San Bernardino Tragedy To Urge Barring Of Female Refugees
Confusing refugees with terrorists, Chris Christie is pandering in an attempt to boost is lackluster presidential campaign.
Christie is pointing to this week’s shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., as evidence that female refugees from Syria should not be allowed in the country.
“We now know from San Bernardino, just a couple of days ago, that women are very capable of being involved in terrorist activity,” the GOP presidential candidate said at a forum in Fort Dodge, Iowa, on Friday, according to ABC News.
One of the alleged assailants in the attack that left 14 dead and 21 injured Wednesday is Tashfeen Malik, 27, a Pakistani woman who immigrated to the U.S. in 2013 on a K-1 fiancée visa.
Authorities said Malik pledged her support to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as the attack was happening.
“The widow who comes over here from Syria, if aligned with ISIS or another organization, could create just as much death as any man given the weapons that are available now,” Christie said.
