Utah was settled by refugees fleeing religious persecution. We understand the pain caused by forced migration and appreciate the contributions of refugees in our communities. Today we sent a letter to @POTUS expressing our desire in helping those who are fleeing Afghanistan.

Sir, I have major disagreements with you on almost everything. However, I want to say thank you for making sure refugees from Afghanistan are welcome.

Utah was already settled by indigenous peoples. Once again, horrible things were perpetrated on humans in the name of religion which is no different that what is happening to the Afghanis. Yes, it's the right thing to do, but be clear and stop rewriting history. #TeachTruth

So interesting to see the difference in comments here and on Facebook. Most of the comments on Facebook are negative and calling Cox a RINO.

If they were brought in under any other circumstances your state would be complaining about all the “brown people” in your state.
