Governors revolt against Obama's Syrian refugee plan
A fast-growing group of Republican governors have revolted against President Barack Obama's existing plan to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees next year, saying the Paris terrorist attacks show that it's too risky to provide a safe haven for those displaced by Syria's bloody civil war.
In a sign of how quickly the fear of another major attack on U.S. soil has grown, more than two dozen GOP governors said the refugees are not welcome in their states, and two Democratic ones voiced some opposition.
North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory said Tuesday that he would not be fulfilling his oath of office if he were not protecting the people in his state from potential threats, the same responsibility Obama has, he said in an interview with "Fox and Friends."
