SALT LAKE CITY — Governor Gary Herbert’s office issued a statement Monday regarding Syrian refugees entering Utah.

Utah is not one of the sixteen states refusing Syrian refugees, but Herbert said an immediate reevaluation of security checks used by the FBI, the Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security is warranted to protect Utahns.
