MTN News- A group of Democratic State Legislators has issued a response to their republican colleagues who urged Governor Bullock to prevent Syrian Refugees from resettling in Montana.

The Democrats argued Governor Bullock does not have the authority to determine who is granted refugee status.  Local Senator Christine Kaufmann has helped thousands of refugees in Europe and is urging people to understand that we cannot hold these people accountable for what a few had done.

“We have all sorts of terrorists unfortunately in this world all sorts of religion and races.” said Senator Cristine Kaufmann.

More than 30 governors have vowed to stop efforts to resettle Syrian Refugees in their states following the November 13th terrorist attacks in Paris.
