Texas Sues to Block Syrian Refugees

by Alexa Ura  |  published on December 3, 2015

Texas has gone to federal court in its efforts to keep Syrian refugees out of the state, filing suit against the federal government and a refugee resettlement nonprofit.

In a lawsuit filed Wednesday afternoon in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton claims the federal government and the International Rescue Committee — one of about 20 private nonprofits that have a state contract to resettle refugees in Texas — are violating federal law by moving forward with the planned resettlement of two Syrian families. One is expected to arrive in Texas as soon as Friday.

    Americans need to revive the story of Benedict Arnold and distribute the message to the students of this country. Our ignorance is destroying us.

    There are areas within their own country or adjoining countries more suitable for Syrians than the United States. The cost of relocation in itself is exorbitant. The United States was established for the furtherance of the Christian faith. The Pilgrims in the Mayflower Compact which is the precursor to Constitution spelled it out.

    Obama’s treasonous illegal alien and muslim resettlement policies along with race baiting have created an ongoing SECOND 9/11 terrorist attack against America!

    I will even call it a US Government sanctioned “PURGE” against its own citizens and the police! Congress is allowing this NOW!

    Obama is a Liar and Traitor. Impeach him now you skulking cowards!

    One small problem. There are more traitors in Congress than patriots!

      I wish you were wrong but you are not. The most feared terrorist to America is sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in WA DC. He is killing the country from the inside. We need the CIA to do what they do best, take down people who are a danger to the country, it is time they work on American soil also.
