Monday, in wake of the attacks in Paris, Gov. Charlie Baker announced that he is "not interested in accepting refugees from Syria."

Meanwhile, in France, President Francoise Hollande spoke to 900 members of the upper and lower house of parliament at Versailles to propose more public safety spending in response to the attacks. He also promised more airstrikes to be launched "in the coming days."

Sealing borders and preparing the military are not new strategies, but some question if they will stop these terrorist attacks.
