51. Thank you for that.. Maybe if he hears from enough people he'll change his repub mind..

The reality is that the overwhelming majority of Syrian refugees are innocent children and parents who’ve fled a homeland that has suffered a conflict far more deadly than the attacks Paris endured Friday night. An estimated 200,000 people have died in Syria since the war began four years ago.

For that reason alone, it’s regrettable that Massachusetts is being added to the list of states that have announced their refusal to accept Syrian refugees. (Those states — Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Louisiana, and Texas — all happen to be led by Republican governors.)

Earlier I had looked up to see what our Gov was doing ..

Ige defends stance on Syrian refugees

Gov. David Ige's office has been flooded with over 500 phone calls and about 300 emails from constituents in response to his statements Monday that Hawaii would welcome refugees fleeing a brutal civil war in Syria.

The governor said some of the comments were supportive of his position but he acknowledged during a press conference Tuesday afternoon that others raised concerns about public safety and how Hawaii would accommodate an influx of refugees in light of the state's escalating homeless problem.

Our Gov wants them but he's getting calls from people who are concerned our Homeless first.
