Judge Spanks Pence on Syrian Refugees, Democrats Respond

INDIANAPOLIS – Drew Anderson, communications director for the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement after a judge ruled against Mike Pence and his run-to-the-mic decision last fall to block aid aimed at helping Syrian refugees transition to the state of Indiana.

“Last fall, Mike Pence put his ideology first when he chose to bar funds from Syrian refugees who simply wanted a fresh start and a new place to call home. In turn, Pence not only embarrassed the state but also once again put Indiana’s coveted ‘Hoosier Hospitality’ reputation in jeopardy. Today’s ruling not only affirms Mike Pence is an ideologue, but also that he is not in touch with how Hoosiers feel about important issues affecting our state. Indiana needs a governor who will put commonsense and ‘The Golden Rule’ first – and not issues that only divide our state. This person is clearly not Mike Pence.”
