Gov. Ned Lamont says the White House is asking Connecticut to accept about 300 Afghan refugees.

Lamont says the state will welcome them with open arms and that it's the state's obligation to make sure they have everything they need to relocate successfully.

The governor says the Department of Social Services will work with local cities, towns and agencies to find places for the refugees to live, work and go to school.

Send the illegals back where they came from and bring the 1000 Americsns still there home, to the US where they belong. These Afghans are just going to eventually just go missing.

Refugees should include females and children under 16. There are few or none.These are all MEN, over 18, able bodied. **PLEASE think about that.**Men, able to fight, marry, reproduce. Hundreds of them.
