Despite early evidence that one of the Paris attackers who helped kill dozens and dozens of civillians had terrorist ties, Gov. Jay Inslee says Washington state will continue to accept Syrian refugees.

He issued a statement Monday that read in part:

"I stand firmly with President Obama who said [Monday] morning.We do not close our hearts to these victims of such violence and somehow start equating the issue of refugees with the issue of terrorism.'"

Despite new information linking several reported refugees to the Paris attack, President Obama said the country will continue to accept refugees, and he announced a plan for at least 10,000 more to come starting in 2016.

In the wake of information about the Paris attackers, at least a dozen state governors have said they will not accept the refugees.  According to KIRO-TV in Seattle:

"Authorities said a Syrian passport was found near one of the attackers, and the Paris prosecutors' office says fingerprints from the attacker match those of someone who passed through Greece in October."

Additional information continues to filter out from the terror attack investigation suggesting that other supposed refugees were either part of the planning or implementation of the incident.

The governors spoke about heightened concerns not just from the terrorist attack, but other State Department and even Homeland Security warnings that such refugee influxes could be infiltrated and used by terrorists to get operatives inside the U.S. According to information shared on Monday's Sean Hannity Show, such credible warnings have been issued by some U.S. officials, and others believe the infiltration has already begun.
