Kasich's spokesman Jim Lynch says the Governor has written to President Obama, saying he doesn’t believe the U.S. should accept additional Syrian refugees because security and safety issues cannot be adequately addressed.

Lynch says, in a written statement, that Kasich is also asking Obama to stop the process of resettling these refugees in Ohio, and that Kasich is also looking at possible additional steps Ohio can take to stop the practice.

At least three other governors are also saying they want to suspend efforts to bring Syrian refugees to their states.
