At the Fourth Quarterly meeting of the Dallas County Democratic Party’s Executive Committee, the body voted to approve the following resolution:
“The Dallas County Democratic Party condemns Republican Governor Greg Abbott’s inhumane and un-American position to bar Syrian refugees from Texas.
We fully support our President and The Texas Democratic Party in their compassionate stand toward refugees seeking asylum in our great country.”
