Huckabee: Ban ‘ALL Visas’ For Travelers From Islamic State Countries

November 18, 2015 4:49 p.m.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee upped the ante on the anti-refugee response to Friday’s Paris attack. The 2016 candidate said not only should all Syrian refugees be prohibited from settling in America, but in a Time op-ed called for a ban on “ALL visas for travelers and tourists from any country with a significant ISIS or al-Qaeda presence.”

The op-ed also called Republicans who have called for a ban on only Muslim Syrian refugees “misguided,” as “terrorists will say anything to infiltrate America – including lying about their religion.”

Additionally, he used the Paris attacks to argue for Mexican border fence.

Paris should be a wake-up call for the Washington establishment and many in the GOP who support open borders and out-of-control amnesty,” he wrote.

So far, the attackers who have been identified from the Paris assault have all been European Union nationals, though a few of the assailants remain unidentified.
