More than Half of U.S. Governors Against Admitting Syrian Refugees


Number of U.S. Governors who say they are opposed to letting Syrian refugees seek asylum in their state. “The political calculus behind these gestures becomes apparent when you look at new polling data released today by the Public Religion Research Institute, which finds that a majority of Americans — 56 percent — say that the values of Islam are “at odds” with America’s values and way of life. This is up significantly from 2011, when only 47 percent of Americans said this.”
