Gov. Bill Lee sent a letter of consent to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announcing the decision to continue allowing vetted refugees to come to Tennessee.

If that is what happens here, so be it, but it would really to be good to read your thoughts. Maybe, just maybe we could develop some solutions.
