Immigration : Texas The First State To Refuse Refugees Under Trump Order

Texas became the first US state on Friday to declare it will not resettle refugees, responding to President Donald Trump’s sustained crackdown on all immigration.

Governor Greg Abbott told the State Department that Texas has to dedicate its resources “to those who are already here, including refugees, migrants and the homeless — indeed, all Texans.”

“Texas has carried more than its share in assisting the refugee resettlement process and appreciates that other states are available to help with these efforts,” Abbott said in a letter addressed to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and published in US media.
