Local Sheriff Agrees With Governor’s No Refugees Order

Baldwin Co. Sheriff's Office
Local police are monitoring state and federal alerts for potential terrorist threats.

BAY MINETTE, AL- Baldwin County Sheriff Hoss Mack agrees with Governor Robert Bentley’s decision to refuse to allow refugees to relocate in Alabama.

Bentley is one of a growing list of governors not allowing refugees in their states following the Paris attacks.

Sheriff Mack says now is not the appropriate time to allow refugees here because it’s difficult for law enforcement to document and verify them.

Mack says his office is in regular contact with state and federal authorities when credible terrorist threats are reported.
