States should be able to turn away refugees if they don’t want them to be resettled in their communities, and requiring a governor’s approval will ensure that the people’s wishes are fulfilled.
Refugees admitted to the U.S. should be welcomed with open arms, not told that certain states or cities won’t let them live in their communities. They’re fleeing oppression, not spreading it.
