Obama administration officials held a conference call on Tuesday with 34 U.S. governors to discuss the country’s refugee program, the White House said, after more than a dozen governors said they would refuse to accept Syrian refugees.

The administration officials assured the governors that the refugees would undergo the most rigorous screening and security vetting of any category of traveler to the United States, the White House said in a statement.

Some of the governors encouraged further communication by the White House to ensure that they are able to better respond to questions from the public about the refugee screening and resettlement process, the White House said.

This REUTERS story completely contradicts several others about the call, where even Jerry Moonbeam was ticked because Obama basically said “We don’t even have to tell you where and when they are coming, much less tell you who they are or share how we know who they are.”

Methinks Reuters is lying, still.

I’m sure this is all about…..”We’ll give your state 1 million dollars to settle 1000 immigrants”.

Don’t trust a known liar. Besides, we can help 11X more people if they stay closer to home. There is a reason why so many M.E. countries are refusing these people. They helped create the problem. Let them take them in. We can help with supplies. We could help far more people that way.
