Rep. Biedermann Supports Gov. Abbott Opting Out of Refugee Resettlement Program

January 24, 2020

“‪I applaud Gov. Abbott for opt­ing Texas out of the fed­er­al refugee reset­tle­ment pro­gram. Texas has shown its com­pas­sion by lead­ing the nation in the reset­tle­ment of refugees for many years. With the utter fail­ure of our fed­er­al gov­ern­ment to secure our bor­der, Texas has had to shoul­der the impact of ille­gal immi­gra­tion into our state. 

I agree with Gov Abbott that ‘Texas has car­ried more than its share in assist­ing the refugee reset­tle­ment process and appre­ci­ates that oth­er states are avail­able to help with these efforts.’ ”- State Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Kyle Biedermann
