When Obama forced Texas to accept Syrian refugees, Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott’s response made everyone in The White House drop their jaws.
Texas had filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Government in an effort to block six Syrian refugees from resettling in Dallas this week.
The International Rescue Committee, a New York-based nonprofit, is forcing Syrian refugees into Dallas – completely ignoring Gov. Greg Abbott’s declaration that Texas would not accept Syrian refugees.
Citing security concerns, Texas is attempting to delay the arrival of the refugees until a federal judge can hear the challenge. Gov. Abbott recently sparked controversy with his letter to Obama that said Syrian refugees could not resettle in Texas following the Paris tragedy.
Although more than half the states in our nation have followed Gov. Abbott’s footsteps, and although France’s open-door policy is what led to 130 being killed in the Paris terrorist attack – the Obama administration claims that states don’t have the authority to block refugees.
Over 170 Syrian refugees have settled in the U.S. since the Paris attacks, including the states whose governors formally objected. The Obama administration and the IRC insist the Syrian refugees have undergone thorough screening and pose no threat to our safety; failing to remember the terrorists utilized the refugee opportunities in Paris less than a month ago. At least 242 Syrian refugees have been resettled in Texas since 2012.
“It is irresponsible for the refugee resettlement operations to put aside any type of security interest and continue to press on about this,” Gov. Abbott said.
Liberals can mock Texas all they want – but there’s a good chance other states will eventually regret not following the resistance of refugees. The Lone Star State’s response may seem radical, but the slaughtering of 130 innocent people is even more radical.
