One Must Infer Gregg Agrees with Pence Policy on Syrian Immigrants

By Jon Easter, Indy Democrat Blog

John Gregg couldn’t even be bothered to comment on Mike Pence’s decision to build a metaphorical fence around Indiana for Syrian refugees.

Gregg instead left it to his own campaign to comment via a statement. As reported by the Indianapolis Star, the Gregg statement reads:

“Like everyone else, John Gregg was outraged by the barbaric events in Paris over the weekend and he feels strongly that every Hoosier should feel safe in their homes, at work and at school. We trust that Mike Pence made this decision based on information he’s received as governor from both state and federal intelligence sources and didn’t do this as a knee jerk reaction motivated by politics.”

It’s political gobbledygook.

The right answer is Syrian immigrants are vetted in an intensive process, and there is absolutely no reason to stop the program. A phone call could have cleared that up. Pence doesn’t care about that. He cares about politics and rather than educate the public on the truth, he took the easy way out. John Gregg let him, and one must infer…agrees with him.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear anyone running for Indiana Governor wants to take the right side on this political hot potato, incumbent or challenger.

How disappointing.
