New York Times: Texas Threatens to Pull Out of Refugee Resettlement Program

The New York Times reports that Texas's refugee coordinator sent a letter to the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement on Wednesday stating that if Texas's plan to limit the number of refugees it accepts and to receive additional security assurances is not approved by September 30, 2016, Texas will exit the federal program and stop providing refugee-related services and benefits starting February 1, 2017. The article notes that if Texas does withdraw, it "may have little to no effect" on refugee resettlements in Texas, because federal officials and local groups could bypass the state in coordinating resettlements.
