The entire GOP is having a massive ISIS freakout and is now doing its utmost to protect America from Syrian refugees. Obviously, much of this is purely political.
This moment could not have come at a worse time for the sane Republican establishment hoping to derail Trump.

Politics will also get sidelined by Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years, so the calendar is much more compressed than it seems. Time is running short to establish order, and two weeks on the clock are getting chewed up by the ISIS/Paris/Terror/Syria storyline, which is in Trump’s wheelhouse of xenophobia.Details
