George Pataki, Lindsey Graham would ‘monitor mosques’ ‘send troops’ to beat ISIS

In the “Undercard” group of GOP presidential candidates, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham proclaimed that he’d “monitor a mosque” or “send troops” to defeat the Islamic State. Civil rights and equal monitoring of other churches seem to be the reactionary questions from critics in response.

“Do we all agree that ISIL is not the JV team?” Graham said, using the global acronym for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), mocking President Obama’s early remarks describing the group.
“If I have to monitor a mosque I’ll monitor a mosque. If I have to take down a cyber wall I’ll take it. If I have to send more American troops to protect us here I will do it,” Graham said.
Fox News host asked former New York Gov. George Pataki how far he would go to root out Islamic extremism, including monitoring a mosque, so this was Graham’s response.

Pataki led the way with a similar plan.

“Religious liberty doesn’t include encouraging a fellow American to engage in violent jihad and killing a fellow American here…that is like shouting ‘fire’ in a crowded theater,” Pataki said, responding to the question of how far he would go to route out extremism in the country, and whether or not he would be comfortable monitoring a mosque. “I would do everything” to stop people “before they can radicalize others,” he added.
This debate featured the candidates outside of the Top Ten in the Fox polling system, giving these candidates a chance to address issues even though they are now included in the primetime event.
