    This Week's Program:

    #SyrianRefugees
    The #ParisAttacks have created an uncertain future for #SyrianRefugees who want to resettle in the United States. The House of Representatives has voted to suspend the acceptance of Syrians until the vetting process is reviewed and strengthened. The Senate is considering similar legislation. Meantime, polls, taken after the Paris attacks, show a sharp spike in Americans' concerns about terrorism in general and the Islamic State in particular. On this week’s HashtagVOA,  we take a closer look at the growing role of terror, refugees and national security
    in the 2016 Presidential Campaign.
