Governor Mike Pence Announces Indiana Will no Longer Accept Additional Syrian Refugees

Governor Mike Pence has announced Yesterday in a statement that effective immediately all state agencies will suspend the resettlement of any additional Syrian refugees. This is in lieu of the attacks in Paris that occurred on November 13th. Reports indicate that at least one of the attackers was a Syrian refugee prompting the reasoning for this reaction. Mike Pence plans to keep this policy in full force until there are assurances that indicate that there is proper safety and security measures in place.
