Letter: Dayton's misunderstanding of the ISIS threat is 'ludricrous'

Gov. Mark Dayton says the idea of a moratorium on accepting 10,000 Syrian refugees is "ludicrous."

Is this the same man who closed his Washington Senate office and ran back to the safety of Minnesota during the Senate-anthrax-in-the-mail crisis? Has he not read that Minnesota is one of the top ISIS recruiting areas? Or seen that seven Somalis pleaded guilty to wanting to join ISIS? Is he so naive as to believe that none of the refugees would be sympathetic to ISIS?

What's ludicrous is that the governor, the top elected official in the state, would be so cavalier with the safety of all Minnesotans.
