As the debate continues in Washington over how to handle the influx of Syrian refugees into the United States, some New Jersey religious leaders are calling for re-settlement efforts in the Garden State to continue.

The topic was discussed during an interfaith roundtable organized by Congressman Frank Pallone on Monday, at the Reformed Church of Highland Park.

The pastor of the church, the Rev.
