Speaker Bowers Applauds Arizona’s Participation in Refugee Reception and Placement Program

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers (R-25) today said the following in response to Governor Ducey’s letter to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo regarding Arizona’s consent to initial refugee resettlement in Arizona per the terms of Presidential Executive Order 13888.

“Our state is one that offers opportunity for all,” said Speaker Bowers. “We welcome people from all backgrounds, religions, and cultures to come here and share in that special spirit. I applaud Governor Ducey for affirming that Arizona will continue to welcome religious and politically-persecuted refugees who have been vetted through the State Department’s Reception and Placement Program.”
