A local congressman is weighing in on the Syrian refugee situation. U.S. Representative Rodney Davis (R-13) says he empathizes with their plight, but feels it is a situation that didn’t have to happen. Davis points to what he calls “failed leadership” as the reason so many Syrians are fleeing their homeland as ISIS makes more inroads into that region.
Davis tells The Big Z the majority of refugees never wanted to leave their homeland in the first place.

As for plans to bring refugees to the United States, and more specifically to the St. Louis area, he says that’s great as long as there is a way to identify who is coming in, who is here and how long they will be staying.
