Statement by Lt. Governor Patrick on Syrian Refugees Coming to Texas


AUSTIN – “Demands that Texas and other states must bow to the federal government and accept Syrian refugees is just another example of the arrogance and overreach of the Obama Administration. The risk to the safety and security of all citizens is outrageous.

“Governor Abbott has taken the correct and courageous position, and I stand with him and the people of Texas who overwhelmingly support him on this important security issue.”
