Many Republican Governors Agree to Accept Thousands of Afghan Refugees

'These are individuals who have been partners with United States and deserve our support in return for the support they’ve given us...'

Republican governors across the country are agreeing to President Joe Biden‘s plan to import mass numbers of Afghan refugees, Breitbart reported on Sunday.

Ten Republican governors backed Biden’s initial plan in August to bring in 36,000 refugees with no screening or vetting.

Now that the Biden administration has announced its plans to bring in 95,000 refugees in the next 12 months, eight more Republican governors have confirmed their support.

Among those eight are Alabama’s Kay Ivey, Idaho’s Brad Little, Indiana’s Eric Holcomb, Montana’s Greg Gianforte, Nebraska’s Pete Ricketts, New Hampshire’s Chris Sununu, Ohio’s Mike DeWine, and Tennessee’s Bill Lee.

Recently DeWine thanked bureaucrats who were relocating hundreds of refugees across the state of Ohio.

“These are individuals who have been partners with United States and deserve our support in return for the support they’ve given us,” DeWine said. “Thank you to the resettlement agencies and communities who have stepped forward and demonstrated they have the resources necessary to help these individuals in their time of need.”

Ivey suggested that Americans owe “a debt of gratitude to those allies who actively helped our soldiers and diplomats stay safe during our two decades in the country.”

Previously, President Donald Trump had issued an executive order which allowed counties and cities to protect themselves from the Federal government’s relocation projects.

But President Biden rescinded Trump’s order last February.
