Governor Parson Consenting For Missouri To Take In Refugees

Governor Mike Parson is giving consent for Missouri to take in refugees.

Parson made his announcement yesterday (Tuesday) in response to an executive order signed by President Donald Trump on September 26th.

Refugees would not be allowed to automatically come to states where governors refuse consent, even if cities and counties welcome them.

Parson said yesterday that Missouri would agree to continue to resettle lawfully admitted refugees in communities that request them.
