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.
