RE: Quality Inn in East Rome on the market for $3.15 million amid hotel boom. Second suspect held in 2015 murder. Perdue backs Trump's immigration stance. GNTC coordinates storm relief for South Georgia.

Hi John,

 

Per the "extreme vetting" item, I didn't send out a press release but here is the statement from Rep. Graves that I gave reporters who inquired yesterday:

 

"America is a nation of immigrants. As such, we are a welcoming country but we also have an obligation to keep our homeland safe, which is the federal government's most fundamental mission. A temporary pause in admitting people to the U.S. from countries initially flagged by the Obama administration as terrorist hotspots is prudent. This pause is an opportunity to examine and strengthen the vetting process to ensure we are doing all we can to keep the American people safe. I am glad that the Secretary of Homeland Security made it absolutely clear that this action is not meant to target immigrants who have become lawful permanent residents of our country."
