Arizona Joins Other States in Rejecting Syrian 'Refugees'

Gov. Doug Ducey has called for an “immediate halt” to the federal government’s settlement of all refugees in Arizona, joining a host of Republican governors who have in some way sought to reject new Syrian refugees in the wake of last week’s devastating terrorist attack in Paris.

Three Syrian camps were proposed for the State.

Saying he wants to protect residents of his state in the wake of terrorist attacks in Paris, Gov. Terry Branstad acknowledged that governors might not be have the legal authority to prevent the Syrian refugees from relocating to their states because "this is a federal program." Still, the Republican said he wants more information from the federal government about where people are being placed and the vetting process. AP
