A North Dakota county is debating becoming the first local government to bar new refugees since President Trump’s executive order allowing the move.
The Burleigh County Commission will hold a vote on the proposal Monday, The Associated Press reported. The vote was delayed in the county that includes the state’s capital of Bismarck after more than 100 people attended the commission’s regular meeting space.
The commission will host Monday’s meeting in a middle school cafeteria instead.
Chairman Brian Bitner told the AP the public interest in the vote is the most intense he’s seen since he’s been on the commission for more than 10 years.
He did not say which way the commission would likely vote but said he would be voting for the proposal to ban new refugees.
