Some of us legislators are thinking about a bill which would require Refugees and Asylees in Wyoming to register with local law enforcement (like sexual predator registration). Penalties for failure to register TBD.
Further, we would hold sponsoring agencies -Lutheran Family Services, Catholic Charities, etc. liable (criminally? financially?) for any Refugee’s or Asylee’s failure to register.
Our bill would apply to any Refugee or Asylee regardless of national origin, gender, race, religion, etc., so it wouldn’t be religious discrimination.
We often hear of the government losing track of immigrants, refugees and asylees. This would fix that, at least for refugees and those granted asylum in this country. This would add a level of security for Wyoming residents.
