WHEREAS, at a hearing held October 22, 2015, FBI Director James Comey issued a warning about the FBI's inability to screen Syrian refugees entering the U.S; and

WHEREAS, the Alcona County Board of Commissioners hereby expresses its concern over United States Refugee Resettlement Program, and any possible State expenditures for the program in this county: and

WHEREAS, the Alcona County Board of Commissioners strongly favors a moratorium on all refugees coming into the state until the vetting problems and other problems associated with the Refugee Resettlement Program can be addressed by Congress;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that this Alcona County Board of Commissioners does not approve of the state proceeding with the United States Refugee Resettlement Program and rejects the expenditure of federal and state funds to assist the United States Refugee Resettlement Program in this County.
