III% Idaho Protests Refugee Resettlement
Three percent Idaho rallied in opposition to the refugee resettlement program and marched the perimeter of the College of Southern Idaho Sunday, October 18, 2015. Demonstrators gathered in a parking lot near WinCo and then marched down Blue Lakes Boulevard, taking a long pause at the intersection of Falls Avenue. Some drivers honked horns in support. The college shares a Board of Trustees with the resettlement organization. Many Idahoans fear large numbers of refugees from war torn Syria could also bring along a handful of terrorist operatives. They demand the program be suspended. At least on a temporary basis.
