On Monday, November 16, Florida Gov. Rick Scott wrote to congressional leaders asking them to stop the Obama administration from funding the relocation of Syrian refugees to the Sunshine State.

The statement came after Ben Rhodes, White House deputy national security adviser, said in a televised interview that the attack on Paris would not change U.S. policy on accepting refugees of the ongoing civil war in Syria.
