    State of Michigan prepared to welcome Afghan evacuees

    The state of Michigan is preparing to welcome Afghan refugee families while it awaits further information from the U.S. Department of State, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Friday. 

    Departments and agencies across the state are ready “to help ensure those who arrive in Michigan can get their feet on the ground,” Whitmer said in a statement. 

    “We have a rich history of multiculturalism — from the Dutch who settled in the West, to the Finns who mined the North, to the Middle-Easterners who made Dearborn a flourishing center for Arab culture, and countless others who make us who we are,” Whitmer said. “People from around the world have come to Michigan over centuries for good-paying jobs, a high-quality education for their kids, and the right to live and worship freely.”
