The community has reached out and has put its arms around the Muslim community in Indianapolis, but there's no question that the flames of the fire have been stoked by prejudices and fearmongering by even our Governor, Mike Pence, who attempted to stop Syrian refugees from settling in our state on the infinitesimal chance they might be terrorists.
Today, Judge Tanya Walton Pratt called Pence's plan to halt Syrian refugees exactly what it is: discriminatory. She had previously ruled that the state had no authority to stop settlers from Syria in Indiana.
Thank goodness Judge Pratt understands what Governor Pence doesn't. Indy and Indiana is a state that welcomes all especially those in need. That's Hoosier Hospitality.
Back to the drawing board, Governor Pence.
