The mayor of the state’s largest city says she supports refugee resettlement in Manchester, while awaiting additional information on whether doing so will require approval by Queen City aldermen, under a new policy from President Donald Trump.

Under an executive order issued by Trump in September, both states and local communities must approve refugee resettlements. Without explicit written consent from both the state’s governor and the city or town, refugees cannot resettle in those cities. The new order was opposed by refugee rights groups.
