2012 From the Governor's office:
CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- Governor Matt Mead released the following statement regarding the refugee issue:"No state should have to endure the threat of terrorists entering our borders," Governor Mead said. "The President needs to make certain an absolutely thorough vetting system is in place that will not allow terrorists from Syria or any other part of the world into our country. In light of the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris, I have joined other governors in demanding the refugee process be halted until it is guaranteed to provide the security demanded by Wyoming and United States citizens. I have written the President (letter attached) to make it known Wyoming will not accept a lackluster system that allows terrorists to slip through the cracks."Governor Mead and other governors have a conference call with the President this afternoon.
I don't usually editorialize in these comments (although I do occasionally), but it's hard not to see this as a political reaction. Given the lack of infrastructure for it, it is doubtful at best that any Syrian refugees would have been resettled in Wyoming. A person can debate whether any terrorist might enter the US in this fashion, but a person is also bound to consider the added humanitarian crisis that failing to address this situation will cause, and the added likelihood of that potentially inspiring violence in the future.
