Subj: Preventing Syrian Refugees from being Relocated to Georgia
Dear Governor Deal,
I am writing to you today to urge you to tell President Obama and the Federal Government that the State of Georgia will not accept Syrian refugees being relocated into our state, just as the Governors of a number of states have already announced.
While I appreciate that this may be a difficult decision, I fully support your efforts to protect Georgia and our country by taking this very important stand. So that you know, I have been contacted by a number of constituents supporting the position of protecting our state by refusing to accept Syrian refugees. I have assured my constituents that your interests are to protect Georgia and that I am contacting you to let their, and my, views be known.
