The vote is in response to the Trump Administration’s Executive Order that states cities must establish whether they will accept those fleeing their war-torn countries and violence, or not.

The city council noted that refugees are strictly vetted and then linked to re-settlement agencies. Three nonprofits will help those in Aurora.

Aurora joins other cities in Colorado, including Centennial, Littleton and Arvada in declaring that they will welcome refugees.
