State Rep. Pushes Governor to Decide on Syrian Refugees

SALEM, OR -- So far, 27 U.S. Governors say they don't want Syrian refugees coming to their states. One of the Paris bombers reportedly slipped into Europe posing as a Syrian refugee.

 

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has yet to make a decision, but State Representative Bill Post (R-Keizer) told KATU in Portland that she needs to act. "I'd like Governor Brown to at least say 'yes, they're coming; this is how many we've been told are coming and this is our plan to make sure Oregonians are safe.'"
