RUTLAND, Vt. (NEWS10) – Officials have decided to release a legal report into a city’s mayor bringing in Syrian refugees.
Fears of terrorist attacks in the United States have become the foundation for debate over letting refugees from countries in the Middle East into the U.S. In Rutland, Vt., the Board of Aldermen looked into the mayor’s actions about asking to bring in refugees from Syria.
It was a resounding ‘yes’ to make the Syrian Refugee Resettlement Proposal available to the public. While some said they agree with it, others said they aren’t sure.
If approved, it could help hundreds of refugees in need.
The proposal still needs to be approved by the Board of State, which could take a few more weeks.
