Governor Hutchinson announces state will welcome refugees

Governor Asa Hutchinson announced in a letter to the U.S. Secretary of State that he has decided to allow the placement of refugees and legal immigrants in Arkansas. 

The decision comes after President Trump signed an executive order giving states the right to refuse to allow refugees by January 21, 2020.

Governor Hutchinson also thanked the Trump administration for “enhancing security checks to ensure proper screenings are carried out for individuals coming into the United States via the resettlement program.”

Hutchinson stated that he made the decision after receiving confirmation from local municipalities, members of the faith-based community as well as members of the non-profit community that they will coordinate support and facilitate employment opportunities for refugees that are approved for relocation to Arkansas.
