Paris attack suspects caught in camp

Austrian authorities have arrested two men at a migrant shelter who may be connected to the Paris terrorist attack last month. State Prosecutor Robert Holzleitner said the men were arrested at a transit camp for asylum seekers in Salzburg, Austria over the weekend, according to the Kronen Zeitung. He said the men were suspected of “participation in a terrorist organization," adding that “indications of a possible link to the Paris attacks are currently being investigated”/The Hill. More here.

Question: Do these arrests underscore concerns that terrorists could hide out among possible Syrian refugees to the United States?
