Jackie talked to the Wabash Plain Dealer in response to recent terror attacks
Walorski has focused much of her campaign on national security and has consistently denounced President Barack Obama’s response to the Islamic State, especially following attacks claimed by the terror group.
“Here’s the problem,” she told the Plain Dealer last week. “We’re a nation at war with radical Islamic terrorism. We’re seeing all these symptoms.”
Walorski expressed her concern with ISIS and the situation developing in Turkey, where the military attempted a coup.
“There’s a lot we don’t know,” Walorski said on Friday. “But what’s clear is the instability continues to threaten our national security. These are all symptoms of a growing issue that our president continues to ignore.”
Walorski has also been an opponent of transferring inmates held at the prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where suspected terrorists are held, and has repeatedly criticized the president for his lack of a “comprehensive strategy” to defeat ISIS.
“We’re going to be dealing with more and more of these attacks here at home,” Walorski said. “I think we’re recognizing that.”
Walorski previously advocated for a temporary halt to the resettlement of Syrian refugees, stating in an interview with Fox News following the attack in Paris last year that the idea is supported by the American people and that she believes the vetting process is insufficient.
