SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Republican Gov. Gary Herbert says he has concerns about any proposal to create a registry or list of refugees, something discussed among advisers to President-elect Donald Trump.

Herbert told The Salt Lake Tribune (https://bit.ly/2gB2j9n) that he doesn’t see the need for any registry or how it would work. He says signing people up and denoting their religion “doesn’t seem to be too American.”

Trump has proposed a ban on Muslim immigrants and his incoming chief of staff has declined to rule out the idea of a Muslim registry.

A Trump immigration adviser and possible candidate for a top government post has proposed reinstating a registration system for immigrants from “high-risk areas.”

Herbert says refugees are not terrorists but are fleeing terrorism and America should help them.
