INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WDRB) -- Indiana has welcomed 150 Syrian refugees since the state's governor tried to keep them out. 

It comes after a federal judge squashed Gov. Mike Pence's order blocking state agencies from helping them re-settle there. 

After the terrorist attack in Paris, Pence said he didn't believe the refugees were being screened properly.

Lawyers for the state will go before a federal appeals court next week to try to have the judge's decision overturned. 

Refugee assistance groups still expect more Syrians to arrive.
