Governor Asa Hutchinson issued the following statement regarding the resettlement of Afghan refugees in Arkansas.
“I received a notification from the White House that up to 98 Afghan refugee cases have been assigned to Arkansas. While waiting for specific information, I am being carried out by a federal partner. In the near future, more Afghan refugees will be assigned to the state’s third-country settlement agency by the state’s parent organization. Refugees are expected to arrive. Refugee relocation is supported by religious organizations and local sponsors, allowing refugees to integrate well into life in Arkansas. “
“These refugees have supported the United States for the past two decades. We have relocated these allies to protect them and to protect their families from the certain dangers they face when staying in Afghanistan. I want to help you do that. “
