    Pennsylvania governor tells Trump his state will keep welcoming refugees


    Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) told President Trump in a recent letter that his state will continue to accept refugees fleeing violence and persecution after the White House proposed “sharply reducing" the cap of refugees that could be admitted to the country last month.

    In the letter, which is addressed to Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Wolf said he was writing to “reaffirm Pennsylvania’s founding values and our commitment to be a welcoming state” and confirm that his state will “continue to welcome refugees to live and work in our communities.”

    William Penn, who founded our state, as a Quaker was the victim of religious persecution in jolly old England. One can consider Pennsylvania to have been founded by immigrants fleeing persecution in their native lands.

    The fact is, PA will only be able to welcome refugees that the federal government allows to come into the country.

    Republican states should send all their American homeless to Pennsylvania as refugees of Democratic Party policies.

    But then they would not be able to receive all the money they do.

    Red states get more welfare than blue states.

    In fact blue states pay the red states bills....

    While refugees are homeless, they are very much unlike homeless people. To focus on the negative aspects of homeless people, most refugees are industrious and do not suffer from mental illness. They are looking for a better way of life. And people looking for a better way of life are already leaving Republican states.

    And why not accept them? Industrious states need more workers, and refugees can make pretty good workers.

    Not when it comes to immigration. Read the Constitution.

    That's amazing. Thank God this country still has people that have open arms and open hearts for refugees.

    How about reading the scroll that the Statue of Liberty has been holding in her hand since 1875.

    That scroll doesn't say anything about State's rights.
