The issue driving the anti-refugee movement stems from fears that among the terrorists who struck in Paris last week were men who might have posed as Syrian refugees. Colorado Republican U.S. Reps. Doug Lamborn and Scott Tipton, are sponsors of a bill to restrict refugees from coming to the U.S. by requiring extra screening. More on that bill, and which Coloradans in Congress support it, here.
