Gov. Bill Lee Announces Decision on Refugee Resettlement

Office of the Governor press release, Dec. 18th, 2019, NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Today, Gov. Bill Lee announced his consent to initial refugee resettlement in Tennessee in response to Executive Order 13888 issued by President Donald J. Trump on September 26, 2019.

“The United States and Tennessee have always been, since the very founding of our nation, a shining beacon of freedom and opportunity for the persecuted and oppressed, particularly those suffering religious persecution,” said Governor Bill Lee. “My administration has worked extensively to determine the best outcome for Tennessee, and I will consent to working with President Trump and his administration to responsibly resettle refugees.”

Rod's comment: I support Gov. Lee's decision. It is the moral thing to do.
