After Trump's order on refugee resettlement is blocked, agencies, Minnesota counties wait and see


January 16, 2020


Those who approved a motion to refuse refugee resettlement raised their hands in the overcapacity crowd in attendance earlier this month in Minnesota' Beltrami County.

A federal judge in Maryland issued a preliminary injunction Wednesday barring enforcement of President Donald Trump's executive order that gave state and local jurisdictions the final decision on whether to accept newly admitted refugees.

The effect, at least for now, is that local debates - such as the heated exchanges in Beltrami and Stearns counties - may have been exercises in futility.
