IDP Celebrates “Hoosier Hospitality” Shown by Religious Charity for Syrian Refugee Family

Pence meanwhile continues his agenda to politicize the Syrian refugee situation

INDIANAPOLIS – Drew Anderson, communications director of the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement to celebrate the true “Hoosier Hospitality” shown by a local charity and their plans to welcome a new refugee family to the State of Indiana.

“Governor Mike Pence was quick to make the Syrian refugee crisis a political one by running to the mic without all the facts from his own administration. That’s why it’s great to see a religious charity organization reclaim the true meaning of ‘Hoosier Hospitality’ by welcoming a war-torn Syrian family to the State of Indiana. While Mike Pence may not have the authority to bar this family from the state, he still can prevent them from receiving critical resources that are needed to survive, including health care and meals. Indiana’s governor may be playing politics and sticking with his ideology, but Hoosiers know that Indiana should continue to be a welcoming place.”
