Is there a single red state left in America?
While Republicans in Washington spent the month betraying conservatives on the budget and border fight, GOP governors who are even more liberal have been quietly undermining Trump’s promise to shut down the refugee resettlement racket. If conservative media is going to continue to put 100 percent of its focus on impeachment, the Left will succeed in getting every single governor and most county officials in the reddest states and counties to promote the broken refugee resettlement scam.
“As you know, for many years, leaders in Washington brought large numbers of refugees to your state from Somalia without considering the impact on schools and communities and taxpayers,” Trump said at a rally in Minneapolis on October 10. “You should be able to decide what is best for your own cities and for your own neighborhoods, and that’s what you have the right to do right now, and believe me, no other president would be doing that.”
Indeed, unlike with the budget and border fights, Trump actually fulfilled his promise to allow states and counties to veto refugee resettlement. But alas, when Trump is on our side, then we must contend with the rest of the broken party. Now, in states that Trump carried by massive margins, Republican governors are submitting letters to the State Department announcing their intent to accept refugees in their respective states.
The State Department has created a list of governors and county commissioners who have written formal letters to the department requesting refugee resettlement in their respective jurisdictions. Pursuant to executive order 13888, both the governor and county government must formally request resettlement before one of the resettlement contractors is allowed to resettle refugees in the given county.
As of today, the State Department has received formal letters from 18 governors requesting refugees, although many more have expressed support, and not a single governor has outright rejected resettlement. Between those on the State Department list and those who have publicly expressed intent to resettle refugees, there are 15 GOP governors who have joined the Soros bandwagon:
