Mike Huckabee is calling on Congress to stop Obama’s plan to bring Syrian refugees to the U.S. with the recent terrorist attack in Paris.

“Speaker Ryan needs to step down today and let someone else lead if he will not act to stop the flow of terrorists to America,” Huckabee stated in a press release, in which he criticized President Obama’s recent comments following the massacre in Paris.

President Obama’s wimpish and amateurish response to Islamic jihadists this morning reveals we have a Cub Scout for Commander in Chief instead of someone who is capable of defending America and unleashing something more than a strongly worded letter through the UN. It’s embarrassing when a left-wing socialist French President shows strength and determination to eradicate animals who are slaughtering innocent civilians while our President lectures us on the moral necessity to open our borders to tens of thousands of un-vetted people from the Middle East. France has closed its borders and all President Obama wants to do is close Gitmo.

Huckabee also said it is up to Speaker of the House to take a step to keep America safe.

And in the GOP, Speaker Ryan needs to make it clear that if the President won’t stand to protect America from wholesale open borders, then Republicans will. If Ryan will not lead and reject the importation of those fleeing the Middle East without assurances that we can separate refugees from terrorists, then Speaker Ryan needs to step down today and let someone else lead.
