More than half of the nation’s governors have told President Obama they want no part of his policy to shove potential terrorists down the throats of unsuspecting communities.

In the wake of Friday’s attacks in Paris and the realization that at least one attacker masqueraded as a refugee to gain entrance to Europe, governors are demanding that Obama halt any effort to place Syrian refugees in their states. The Obama administration has said it will resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees next year.

“I will do everything humanly possible to stop any plans from the Obama administration to put Syrian refugees in Mississippi. The policy of bringing these individuals into the country is not only misguided, it is extremely dangerous,” wrote Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant.

“After full consideration of this weekend’s attacks of terror on innocent citizens in Paris, I will oppose any attempt to relocate Syrian refugees to Alabama through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program,” said Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley. “I will not stand complicit to a policy that places the citizens of Alabama in harm’s way.”

States whose governors oppose Syrian refugees coming in include: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin.
