Ohio Governor John Kasich, on the presidential campaign trail, says this state should accept no Syrian refugees amid concerns terrorists might be entering the country posing as refugees. Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, meanwhile, says this city would welcome them. And Akron Councilman Russ Neal says his city must continue to be open to immigrants and refugees. An open dialogue on refugees, Tuesday morning at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.
