Back To Front Page


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indianaís governor is giving cautious support to President Donald Trumpís executive order restricting refugees and immigration into the country.

Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb says the countryís highest duty is to protect its citizens and borders. Holcomb says in a statement that he will monitor implementation and the impact of Trumpís order on the state.

He says he hopes for no adverse effects on the welcoming environment for Indianaís law-abiding international community.

Republican U.S. Sen. Todd Young has expressed support for Trumpís order, while Democratic U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly says the order isnít consistent with American values and could give recruitment fodder to terrorist groups.

Trumpís order temporarily bans immigration from seven countries with majority-Muslim populations and suspends the United Statesí entire refugee program.
