DALLAS – The latest on the arrival of Syrian refugees in Texas and Indiana (all times CST):
Resettlement agencies and volunteer groups assisting Syrian refugees are continuing their work even in states where officials have said those refugees aren't welcome.
Refugees arrived this week in Texas and Indiana, both states whose governors have said they reject Syrian refugees due to concerns they might pose a threat to public safety.
The International Rescue Committee settled a family of six in Dallas. Refugee Services of Texas facilitated the arrival of another couple and their four daughters in Houston. And the Roman Catholic archdiocese in Indianapolis announced it had brought in another Syrian family.
In Dallas, volunteers who regularly work with refugees say they've actually seen an uptick in donations and offers to help in the wake of more attention being paid to Syrian refugees.
