Statement from Senate Leadership on Governor Ducey’s call to halt settlement of refugees in Arizona

“Governor Doug Ducey has issued a statement calling for an immediate halt in the settlement of refugees in Arizona until the federal government consults the state and takes into account our grave concerns and recommendations before proceeding any further. The Governor properly cited existing federal law that gives Arizona this right. The Republican leadership of the State Senate strongly supports this approach to deal with this developing crisis, in an effort to keep all the residents of Arizona safe from the kind of despicable violence perpetrated by radical Islamists as we have seen here in the United States and most recently in Paris. We applaud the Governor’s leadership and stand with him to protect our homeland.”
