...At least eight additional counties across Tennessee are ready to rebuke Gov. Bill Lee's decision to bring more refugees to the state, Breitbart News has learned.
...For fiscal year 2020, President Donald Trump will continue cutting refugee admissions by reducing former President Barack Obama's refugee inflow by at least 80 percent.
...After immense backlash from state legislators and voters, insiders told Breitbart News that now another eight counties are considering a resolution that Loudon County recently adopted, which rebukes the governor's decision to allow more refugees and bans resettlement in the region.
...State legislators were "Blindsided," according to the insider, when Lee announced that he would allow refugee contractors on behalf of the State Department to resettle more refugees in the state for fiscal year 2020.
...Currently in Tennessee, refugee contractors - the non-government organizations that resettle refugees in the U.S. for the federal government - maintain offices in Davidson County, Shelby County, Hamilton County, and Knox County.
