42 of the 50 states so far have otherwise agreed to take in refugees, though the Trump administration has made it possible for states and local areas to reject this.
Texas is the first state to make use of the possibility, while the remaining states have until 21. January to decide.
the State governor Greg Abbott highlights in the letter to secretary Mike Pompeo, that Texas has acted in distress.
Texas has had to deal with an exceedingly large amount of refugees due to a corrupted immigrationssystem, writes Abbott.
- Now the state and its non-profit organizations responsibility to take care of all those who are here already, are further down in the letter.
In the letter, it is apparent, however, that you as a refuge good in the long term can settle in Texas. However, this requires that you have already been residing in another state.
According to The Guardian, Texas resettled 88.300 refugees, which is only surpassed by the state of California.
