Revolt: 22 Sitting GOP Governors Rebel Against President Obama Over Syrian Refugees
    Governors across the country are publicly rejecting President Obama's plan to relocate Syrian refugees.
    The growing number of governors rejecting Syrian refugees comes after reports that one of the suspects in Friday's Paris terrorist attacks, which killed more than 120 people, had entered Paris by masquerading as a Syrian refugee.
    The number of Republican governors who have called for the rejection of the relocation of Syrian refugees in their states continues to climb. Currently, the GOP Governors of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Massachusetts, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, New Jersey, Kansas and Wisconsin have all rejected Obama's resettlement plan. That means 22 sitting GOP governors have rejected Obama's plans --- and only nine sitting GOP governors haven't come out against the plan.
    In addition, Kentucky's governor-elect Matt Bevin is publicly opposed to the plan as well, which means when he is sworn in as the next governor of Kentucky there will be at least 23 states with GOP governors opposed to Obama's Syrian refugee resettlement plan. That's also all in addition to New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan --- a Democrat --- coming out against President Obama's plans.
