ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A county executive in Maryland is urging Gov. Larry Hogan to continue to allow refugees into the state.

The Capital Gazette reported Wednesday that Hogan faces a Jan. 21 deadline regarding refugees that was set by President Donald Trump.

State and local governments must give written consent to let refugees resettle within their boundaries.

Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman ask Hogan to keep the door open. Hogan has so far not taken a public stance.
