The people who remain most threatened by immigrants most encounter them least. It was true 100 years ago and itโ€™s true now.

And yet our state continues to lead (by percentage of population) in refugee resettlement. I donโ€™t get it.

Ricketts to tell Trump administration that Nebraska will accept refugees Lincoln, Nebr. Journal-Star, Dec. 19:

Gov. Pete Ricketts will issue his consent to allow refugees to continue to resettle in Nebraska, a step now required by the federal government.

An executive order signed by President Donald Trump in September requires governors, mayors and other local government leaders to provide written consent to allow refugees in their communities.

Several local leaders โ€” including the Omaha and Lincoln mayors and both the Lancaster and Douglas county commissioners โ€” have indicated they plan to consent.

From the Omaha World-Herald, since 2002, 11,949 refugees from 36 countries have resettled in Nebraska.

We have one refugee in my little town (from Cuba).
