Resettling Syrian Refugees in Washington State

December 2, 2015

In the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks, Syrian refugee resettlement in the United States has become highly controversial. Washington GovernorJay Inslee says the state will welcome refugees from Syria and other war-torn countries that are approved for resettlement here, as he believes that federal security protocols are in place to minimize whatever risks the refugees may pose. Enrique Cerna takes up the refugee resettlement issue, the facts surrounding the process and the concerns of Muslim-Americans with former Washington Governor Dan Evans, Bob Johnson, the International Rescue Committee Executive Director— U.S. Programs/Seattle, and Arsalan Bukhari, Executive Director of the Washington State chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
