NORTH DAKOTA COUNTY TO VOTE ON WHETHER TO STOP ACCEPTING REFUGEES

A county in North Dakota is set to decide Monday whether it will stop accepting refugees, potentially becoming the first since President Trump issued an executive order making it possible.

Burleigh County, home to nearly 100,000 people and the capital city of Bismarck, postponed a vote last week after more than 100 people showed up and overflowed the commission’s normal meeting space.

“The overwhelming public opinion is so clear to me, that I think if you vote for it, you’re not going to be reelected if you choose to run again,” said Chairman Brian Bitner.
