Benton County Won’t Address Refugee Resettlement
FOLEY -- Benton County has decided not to address refugee resettlement in light of a federal judge's injunction against President Trump's executive order.
County Administrator Monty Headley says it was pulled from the agenda Tuesday through a motion by a commissioner and the removal was adopted.
Headley says Lutheran Social Services told them it was a moot point now and local governments are not required to give consent in 2020.
If the executive order is eventually upheld, Headley says they can always revisit the issue.
