Another setback for Obama trying bring refugees into the U.S. and I honestly couldn’t be happier.
Alabama has now sued the federal government for failing to properly notify state officials of refugee relocation. Obama has essentially gone behind the back of each and every state, secretly placing refugees into communities nationwide. Well Alabama had enough and fired back!
Governor Robert Bentley has had enough.
A spokeswoman for Gov. Robert Bentley told the Associated Press the lawsuit was filed Thursday, following a similar suit by Texas a month ago.
The suit claims the Obama administration has violated the terms of the Refugee Act of 1980, which says the federal government “shall consult regularly” with states before placing refugees.
Bentley is one of more than two-dozen Republican governors who opposed the settlement of Syrian refugees in their states after the Nov. 13 jihadist attacks that killed 130 people in Paris.
About 80 GOP congressmen have also signed on to co-sponsor a bill by Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, which would halt all refugee resettlement until the program can undergo a full investigation into its costs and its risks to national security.
This is what every single state in this country should be doing!
