The Refugee Resettlement Debate Continues
We continue our series on New Hampshire immigration by looking at the proposed refugee moratorium in Manchester. The moratorium would temporarily stop the city of Manchester from accepting new refugees. Meanwhile a recent bill in the statehouse would allow communities throughout the state to establish moratoria. The supporters claim that a moratorium will allow the state to better serve the current refugees, but the bill leaves some wondering if closing the doors to refugees is the best answer.
