Commissioners have postponed a decision on a resolution that would block Syrian refugees from being relocated to their county.
Craven County Commissioners met Tuesday morning and reviewed a draft resolution that requests the Interfaith Refugee Ministry not to bring in any refugees from countries the State Department considers to be controlled by terrorist organizations. That includes refugees from Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.
The motion was made on Tuesday to table the issue so that public comments can be introduced. Those comments can be made at the next Commissioner's meeting on Monday, Feb. 1 at 7:00 p.m.
