Lawmakers Call On Governor To Not Accept Syrian Refugees

At least two Rhode Island lawmakers are calling on Governor Raimondo to rescind the state's offer to help Syrian refugees.  Doreen Costa took to Twitter to say, quote, "Please re-think welcoming refugees to Rhode Island," and later sent a letter directly to Raimondo.  Robert Nardolillo echoed Costa's calls, also sending a letter to Raimondo saying that Rhode Island isn't immune to terrorist attacks.  The ACLU has since issued a statement of its own expressing deep concerns about the calls from lawmakers.
