Texas to take in 75,000 refugees

Gulf Times Newspaper - Qatar, Gulf and World News - Americas: "Texas, which has already taken in thousands of people left homeless by flooding in the neighbouring state of Louisiana, is offering to provide shelter to another 50,000 people, Governor Rick Perry said late on Thursday.
That would bring the number of refugees in Texas to 75,000, after the city of Houston agreed to take in 25,000 refugees in its old Astrodome stadium and several surrounding buildings."
