Note to the press: Please include the following statement from State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) in response to Gov. Mike Pence directing all state agencies to suspend the resettlement of additional Syrian refugees.

INDIANAPOLIS – “Over the weekend, our nation’s oldest ally came under attack. As details of these heinous events continue to unfold, I support the governor’s decision to halt the resettlement of additional Syrian refugees in Indiana. As elected leaders, our first priority is to ensure the safety of all Hoosiers, and until we are certain that the proper security measures are in place, we must take every precaution working towards that goal.”
