Runestad RR Bills
Michigan State Representative Jim Runestad (White Lake) has two bills focused on protecting Michigan citizens:
SUSPENSION OF ADMISSION OF UNVETTABLE REFUGEES
FROM FAILED STATES ACT
A bill to ensure that no unvettable refugees from failed states are resettled in Michigan under the United States Refugee Resettlement Program until the State legislature has reviewed the vetting process and can ensure residents of Michigan that it is safe for the resettlement of such refugees to proceed.
LOCAL CONTROL OF REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT ACT
A bill to ensure that no State funds shall be expended to assist in the United States Refugee Resettlement Program unless the State legislature and the county council of the county where the resettlement is to occur approves the relocation.
Gary Glenn’s Letter
Michigan State Representative Gary Glenn (Midland) issued a letter calling for Governor Snyder to reverse his call to relocate Syrian refugees in the state.
"I respectfully urge the governor to act cautiously and conservatively to fulfill what in the sad reality of today's world is the most fundamental responsibility of state government, to protect the public safety of our families and our communities here at home. We should not rush to offer an open door to the high-risk importation of individuals from a known hotbed of Islamic extremism who security officials say cannot be safely screened to identify and block jihadists masked as 'refugees' who'd love to bring suicide vests and grenades to Ford Field or Fisher Theater or Great Lakes Crossing."
Michigan State Rep. Jim Runestad has introduced New Legislation to do just that!
