This bill would, inter alia, bar any refugee from being resettled in a state whose governor certified that ‘the director [of the Office of Refugee Resettlement] has failed, in the sole determination of the Governor, to provide adequate assurance that the alien does not present a security risk to the state.’ Also, the official in question would be required to notify the relevant state government 21 days in advance of plans to place or resettle a refugee in said state.
