Evangelical preacher the Rev. Franklin Graham has responded to the terror attacks in Paris on Friday by stating that unchecked Muslim immigration to the U.S. could open the door to a repeat of such violence on American soil.
"I've said this before, and many people criticized me for saying it. We must reform our immigration policies in the United States. We cannot allow Muslim immigrants to come across our borders unchecked while we are fighting this war on terror.
