Abstract

Article excerpt: In the aftermath of terrorist attacks in Paris, state governors from more than 25 states, including the governor of my state, New Hampshire, have stated that they are shutting down their borders and not allowing Syrian refugees to live in their states. While their pronouncements carry no legal weight, because state governors don’t have the authority to decide whether to admit refugees into the United States (that is the president’s prerogative), they are misguided and morally reprehensible.
