YORK, S.C. — The York County Council will revisit whether to go on the record in opposition to welcoming Syrian refugees to the county.

The Herald of Rock Hill reports the council let the issue die last month without a vote, when Councilman Bruce Henderson offered a resolution that called on South Carolina to suspend resettlement of refugees from Syria.

On Monday, the council instructed county attorney Mike Kendree to create a new resolution addressing whether people displaced by the civil war in Syria should be admitted to the United States.

Council members will vote on that resolution Dec. 21.

The nonprofit World Relief Spartanburg says there are no plans for any of the estimated 10,000 Syrian war refugees the U.S. will admit next year to settle in South Carolina.
