Fox News contributor Karl Rove weighed in on why some Afghan refugees are being settled in battleground states on “Fox News Primetime.” 

KARL ROVE: Well, I’d be involved a little bit due to, for instance, I’ve acquired my little helpful map correct proper right here from Axios. You’re appropriate, 1,000 refugees are going to Florida, nonetheless Idaho, which is 1/14th the inhabitants of Florida is getting 420. You’re appropriate. There are 1,300 going to Michigan, nonetheless there’s 775 going to Nebraska which is a fraction of the dimensions of Michigan. So, I wouldn’t see this as a plot. I’m just a bit bit bit involved about why isn’t Delaware doing its truthful proportion? Really, these options usually are made between the State Department and Department of Homeland Security based mostly upon a couple of points, one among which is the flexibleness of sources at the state diploma to easily accept these refugees and proper treatment nevertheless furthermore  —significantly that is a case with the so-called SIV holders — the individuals who fought alongside us, interpreters, you acknowledge, army aides and so forth. They have sponsors and the query is: Where is their sponsor? — The one which’s desirous to assist make sure that they get settled contained in the United States and begin to make their life correct proper right here in our nation. So, I wouldn’t say that is all form of, you acknowledge, some DNC information sitting in some bizarre workplace in Washington saying, “Let’s have these people put in certain states so that 15 years from now, 18 years from now, if they become U.S. citizens, that they’ll vote Democrat in a battleground state for us. I think it’s not that — not that underhanded.
