Governor Tim Walz says Afghan refugees are welcome in Minnesota.  On Thursday, Governor Walz sent a letter to President Biden stating that the Gopher State is prepared to house refugee families from Afghanistan.  In the letter, Walz said he and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan are ready to work with the Biden Administration to provide safety for the families.  The letter comes as Afghans are fleeing their home country following a governmental collapse and Taliban takeover.
