Governor Bobby Jindal issues executive order to prevent more Syrian refugees from coming to Louisiana

BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has issued an executive order to halt the influx of Syrian refugees into Louisiana.

Jindal issued the order in the wake of terror attacks that killed 129 people in Paris, France on Friday night.

The order instructs the Louisiana State Police and all executive branch agencies to “monitor and avert threats within the State of Louisiana” possibly posed by refugees already in the state.

 A total of 14 refugees from Syria are already in Louisiana as part of a federal effort to take in those fleeing the war-torn region.
