Daniel Horowitz of the Conservative Review offered a very sobering analysis of how useless Republican Governors have been on the issue of refugee resettlement.
President Trump set the record straight on the issue of refugee resettlement back in October.
“As you know, for many years, leaders in Washington brought large numbers of refugees to your state from Somalia without considering the impact on schools and communities and taxpayers,” Trump said during a rally in Minneapolis on October 10. “You should be able to decide what is best for your own cities and for your own neighborhoods, and that’s what you have the right to do right now, and believe me, no other president would be doing that.”
Trump stayed true to his word and allowed states and counties to reject refugee resettlement. However, Republican governors are a different story.
Republican governors have sent letters to the State Department announcing their desire to resettle refugees in their respective states.
The State Department now has a list of governors and county commissioners who have written formal letters to the department demanding refugee resettlement in their jurisdictions.
According to executive order 13888, both governors and county governments must formally request resettlement prior to one of the resettlement contractors being able to resettle refugees in a given county.
As of now, 18 governors have sent formal letters to the State Department requesting refugees. It should be noted that many more have voiced their support, and not a single governor has fully rejected resettlement.
The following 15 GOP governors have hopped on board the mass migration bandwagon:
- Kim Reynolds of Iowa
- Doug Ducey of Arizona
- Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma
- Bill Lee of Tennessee
- Doug Burgum of North Dakota
- Kristi Noem of South Dakota
- Chris Sununu of New Hampshire
- Gary Herbert of Utah
- Pete Ricketts of Nebraska
- Jim Justice of West Virginia
- Eric Holcomb of Indiana
- Phil Scott of Vermont
- Charlie Baker of Massachusetts
- Mike DeWine of Ohio
- Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas
It’s becoming clear that the GOP is not serious about the immigration issue and will need pressure from below in order to get its act together.

Houston Police Allow Abortion Clinic to Operate Despite Texas Courts Ruling Them Non-Essential
On March 30th, a judge ruled that Texas abortion clinics could stay open. This ruling came a few days after the Texas governor, Greg Abbott, deemed abortion servies non-essential.
Since abortions are clearly elective surgeries, the ruling was overturned by a vote of 2-1 in the 5th circuit court of appeals on March 31st. Meaning, the governor’s order stands and abortion clinics must close until non-essential businesses are allowed to open back up.
This hasn’t stopped one abortion clinic in Houston from continuing to kill the unborn.
In a video released on April 1st, via the YouTube channel ‘ProofThatGodExists,’ an abortion clinic in Houston is shown to still be accepting clients.
A couple of pro-life activists are shown in the video standing outside the abortion clinic. Across the street is a police officer, with whom one of the activists eventually talks.
They tell the offiicer that the abortion offices are still seeing clients. The officer acknowledges their concerns and says, “we’ll take care of it.”
A few minutes later, the officer goes to talk to the pro-life activists. The officer informed the activists that he was just there to “keep the peace” and nothing else.
One of the activists again informed the officer of the situation, asking, “Do you know that it’s illegal for them to do abortions today?” The officer replied, “I’m not out here for that.”
The activist then reiterated that he was asking him not why he was there, but if he personally knew of the current order. He wanted to know if the officer was not enforcing because he didn’t know about the order or because his department was choosing to ignore it in this case.
The officer didn’t want to answer directly. So, he again said, “I’m not saying that what you’re saying is wrong…. But that’s not what I’m out here for. I’m out here to keep the peace….”
He then said, “Whoever you need to call to enforce what you’re asking me about…” He was interupted by the second activist, who challenged him, insisting, “When people are breaking the law, we call the police.”
The video continues on with many more women entering the clinic. Eventually the abortion doctor arrived to the clinic, as well.
It’s clear that the clinic is in direct violation of the order that declares abortion services non-essential. Why the Houston police aren’t enforcing the order as it pertains to this particular clinic is still unclear.
