Steve Beshear on Foreign Policy
Moral obligation to help those fleeing war and terror
President Trump's approach makes us less safe and should worry every freedom-loving American. President Trump has all but declared war on refugees and immigrants. Look, the president can and should enforce our immigration laws, but we can protect
America without abandoning our principles and our moral obligation to help those fleeing war and terror, without tearing families apart and without needlessly jeopardizing our military men and women fighting overseas.

Do the Christian thing to welcome Syrian refugees
Kentucky's incoming Republican governor has joined governors of several states in opposing the resettlement of Syrian refugees. Republican Gov.-elect Matt Bevin's stance is at odds with Kentucky's current governor.
Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear says Kentucky should do "the Christian thing" and welcome all refugees who have passed extensive background checks.
