    While he was in New Hampshire Thursday to file for the primary, presidential hopeful Jeb Bush gave his stance on Syrian refugees.

    The Republican said the refugee program should be put on pause until the government can assure the states that proper vetting is being carried out.

    Bush is the only Republican candidate who believes the us should not refuse entry to all Syrian refugees, saying the U.S. should take orphans and those who can prove there are Christians.

    Additionally, Bush laid out his plan to build up U.S. military forces to fight ISIS and other terror threats in the wake of the attacks in Paris.

    The former Florida governor officially filed around noon.

    Candidates have until Friday to file in the Granite State.
