Refugee Resettlement in Wyoming

I oppose any refugee resettlement in Wyoming.

Wyoming is the one state that does not have a formal refugee resettlement program with the federal government. I am opposed to efforts to establish a refugee resettlement program here in Wyoming.

A bill against this very issue was addressed and passed the House with overwhelming support but it disappeared and was not brought up before the Senate for a vote. That is a typical way the establishment disposes of conservative bills. They pass it in one house and then put it in the garbage bin when it moves to the other house.

I am adamantly opposed to efforts to establish a refugee resettlement program here in Wyoming. With President Obama committing to the UN to resettle an ever-swelling quota of refugees, and with the refugee resettlement advocates already active in our state, I believe that the legislature should block ANY Governor from establishing a refugee resettlement program.
