By our count twelve governors have told the US State Department (or at least told the media) that they want more refugees. (See my right hand sidebar.)
The contractors*** have been claiming that 16 or 17 have agreed.
(The contractors are pressing governors to agree by Christmas so they, the contractors, will have time to get their grant applications in—this is all about them getting their $$$.)
However, get this, the US State Department website went up today and only 9 governors have so far sent in their paperwork.
Only a tiny number of local jurisdictions have sent in the required consent, and it looks like there is some confusion because it is our understanding that it is county governments that must agree.
Below is what the DOS has at this time (not terribly impressive!).
This means you still have time to get to work!

***For new readers these (below) are the nine federally-funded refugee contractors that monopolize all refugee placement in America. For decades they have decided in secrecy where to place refugees and they don’t want to lose that power because even as they pontificate about their religious convictions and humanitarian zeal, they are Leftwing political groups working to change America by changing the people and using your money to do it!
