Now 14 Republican governors - and one Democrat too - say they don't want to accept Syrian refugees as President Obama recommits the United States to 'do its part'

"Now, 14 Republican governors – and one Democrat too – have said they don't want Syrian refugees in their states, as President Obama recommitted the U.S. to take a portion of this population fleeing from ISIS.    

In a press conference this morning in Turkey, Obama said that 'the United States has to step up and do its part,' while chiding those in the opposition party for suggesting there be a 'religious test' for entry into the United States. 

However, Republican governors from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Texas and Wisconsin said they would postpone programs to bring in Syrian refugees, or they're against the idea entirely, according to the Associated Press
Additionally, CNN reported that Arizona, North Carolina, Ohio and New Hampshire are also on the list.

New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan is the first Democrat to express support for stopping the flow of Syrian refugees into her state.  "
