Rush Limbaugh praised Speaker of the House [crscore]Paul Ryan[/crscore]’s assessment of the Syrian refugee crisis, suggesting that there needs to be a “pause” before allowing Syrian refugees into America because it “makes some sense.”

Tuesday on “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” the radio host explained “It’s crucially important… [that there is ] a pause on the Syrian refugee program.”

On Tuesday, Ryan said, “It’s important that we have a refugee system in place. We respect that. But we think it’s simply prudent that, for this particular program, in this particular situation, that we be better guarded against any possible infiltration of ISIS coming through this program. That is why we think it’s necessary to have a pause and to have a more comprehensive strategy dealing with guaranteeing that we do not allow ISIS members coming here.” (RELATED: Speaker Ryan On Refugees: ‘We Cannot Let Terrorists Take Advantage’ [VIDEO])

Limbaugh explained, “Because we can’t vet them. He’s exactly right. The libs are trying to say that we’re throwing our values away, that we accept anybody, that we are the single experiment in freedom and openness and tolerance — and if we shut it down, we’re no better than anybody else in the rest of the world.”

“But we can’t vet them. We don’t know who they are,” said Limbaugh. “There’s no way to know. Ryan’s idea of a pause here makes some sense.” (RELATED: Limbaugh: ‘Obama Is… Looking Like An Incompetent Boob’ [VIDEO])
