Mike McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, warned that jihadists with the Islamic State group could embed with refugees fleeing the conflict in Syria, creating a jihadi pipeline. “From a national security standpoint, I take ISIS at its word when they said, in their own words, ‘We’ll use and exploit the refugee crisis to infiltrate the West.’ That concerns me,” McCaul told ABC television’s “This Week” program.
