Official: Syrian refugees not coming to N.D. reservations


A news story making its way around the Internet claiming that 250,000 Syrian refugees would be granted a temporary stay at Arizona and North Dakota First Nation reservations is a hoax, according to the U.S. State Department.

A State Department official said Monday that the U.S. government has never placed refugees at American Indian reservations and has no plans to house Syrian refugees, or any refugees, on such reservations. The alleged State Department spokesperson in the hoax article, Cathy Pieper, does not exist, according to the State Department.
