More than half of Governors say they will not take Syrian refugees

Boy, Obama's press conference sure has some impact:
More than half the nation's governors -- 27 states -- say they oppose letting Syrian refugees into their states, although the final say on this contentious immigration issue will fall to the federal government. 
States protesting the admission of refugees range from Alabama and Georgia, to Texas and Arizona, to Michigan and Illinois, to Maine and New Hampshire. Among these 27 states, all but one have Republican governors.
They may have Republican governors but Michigan and Illinois have been Blue states for years.

Careful, Michigan is a blue state in the presidential elections, but is a representative republican majority due to gerrymandering nearly as hard as the original Massachusetts districts themselves...


The greater Detroit area is a personal favorite

Maybe the District of Columbia would "shelter" a few thousand.

For some reason I don't fear a few Syrian refugees (who got that way through US government meddling, by the way). Maybe there is something wrong with me.

Anyway this should help:
