DeWine: Refugees welcome in Ohio


COLUMBUS, Ohio—Gov. Mike DeWine has given the Trump Administration the OK to continue resettling foreign refugees in Ohio.

DeWine is one of more than 30 governors to notify U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that they will keep welcoming refugees into their states. In September, President Donald Trump issued an executive order that the U.S. State Department will only resettle refugees into areas where state and local governments have given permission.

“The State of Ohio has a long and successful history of welcoming and assimilating refugees from all corners of the globe,” DeWine wrote. “Ohio also has a well-developed support network to welcome and assimilate refugees, primarily lead by our faith-based communities.”
