Vice President Mike Pence feels “vindicated” on Syrian refugee policy in the wake of federal law enforcement foiling an alleged bomb plot in Pittsburgh, a source familiar with the vice president’s thinking told Breitbart News.

Specifically, when he was governor of Indiana in late 2015 before President Donald Trump won the GOP nomination and selected Pence as his running mate, Pence as governor halted the resettlement of Syrian refugees in Indiana. The effort was bogged down in the court system in the years since, but now President Trump has implemented federal policies to help cement what Pence was doing on the state level back then when now-former President Barack Obama was in the White House. But, now, with federal law enforcement officials charging a Syrian refugee with planning to bomb a Christian church in Pittsburgh, Pence feels he was right about this all along.

Under President Obama, this supposed refugee got into the U.S. and was planning to support ISIS and attack a church. It’s because bad actors try to exploit our generous immigration and asylum laws that President Trump and Vice President Pence wanted stronger vetting procedures, and clearly, this is evidence that those stricture measures are warranted.”

As governor of Indiana in late 2015, the vice president joined several other governors nationwide in directing his state’s official agencies not to accept refugees from Syria in the wake of the Paris terrorist attack.
