LOS ANGELES: US filmmaker Michael Moore is opening his home in Michigan to Syrian refugees, in a rebuke to the state’s governor who said he would turn away refugees in the wake of the Paris attacks. In an open letter posted on his Facebook page on Friday, Moore, known for his leftist political activism, slammed Governor Rick Snyder for his decision on the refugees, saying such behavior was “anti-American.” “Your action is not only disgraceful, it is, as you know, unconstitutional (only the President has the legal right to decide things like this),” Moore wrote. “I’m disappointed in you, Governor Snyder, for your heartless and un-Christian actions, and for joining in with at least 25 other governors (all but one a Republican) who’ve decided to block legal Syrian refugees from coming into their states,” Moore added.
