Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) also released a statement noting, “President Biden has failed to provide answers as to who has come into the country or if they have been fully vetted according to what’s required by law. I’ve spoken to Gov. Gianforte about this situation, and I stand with him in calling on President Biden to stop all Afghan resettlements to Montana until we get answers.”
Rep. Matt Rosendale (R-MT) also released a statement pointing out, “These unvetted Afghans do not share our culture and our values, and as this horrific incident shows they represent a serious risk to our communities. We cannot allow this administration to continue to jeopardize the safety of our communities and the security of our nation in the name of empathy.”
