Wolf Says Pennsylvania Will Accept Syrian Refugees

Gov. Tom Wolf says his administration will continue working with the federal government to resettle Syrian refugees in Pennsylvania following the Paris terrorist atttacks. Wolf, a Democrat, said today that the federal government believes it can handle an additional 10,000 refugees that the White House said in September that it would accept from Syria. Pennsylvania’s Department of Human Services says 14 Syrian refugees have arrived in the state since Oct. 1. Eight governors, all Republicans, say they’re opposing efforts to relocate Syrian refugees in their states or they’re demanding to know more about the federal government’s security procedures to screen Syrian refugees.
