From Foreign Policy.
Obama’s plan to resettle up to 10,000 Syrians in the United States by 2017 has moved from Congress to the state house. Twenty of them, in fact, and the list is growing.
Governors from Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin — all Republicans, with the exception of New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan, who is a Democrat — say they would not allow Syrians fleeing that country’s civil war to live in their states. The decisions to close these borders come after at least 129 people were killed in Paris in an attack orchestrated by the Islamic State. According to Greek officials, one of the Paris attackers posed as a refugee to gain entry to Europe on Oct. 3; many Republicans warn that Obama’s resettlement plan could allow terrorists to sneak into the United States as well.
More than half the nation’s governors — 27 states — say they oppose letting Syrian refugees into their states, although the final say on this contentious immigration issue will fall to the federal government.
States protesting the admission of refugees range from Alabama and Georgia, to Texas and Arizona, to Michigan and Illinois, to Maine and New Hampshire. Among these 27 states, all but one have Republican governors.
……Only 1,500 Syrian refugees have been accepted into the United States since 2011, but the Obama administration announced in September that 10,000 Syrians will be allowed entry next year.
The onslaught of muzzie terrorists into America has got to stop.
BTW: A Syrian “refugee” disappeared from Louisiana and no one knows where the hell he is:
A Syrian refugee relocated to Louisiana has already gone missing, but the group accommodating them isn’t taking responsibility.
WBRZ has learned Catholic Charities helped the refugee who settled in Baton Rouge, but said the immigrant left for another state after a couple of days, and they don’t know where the refugee went since they don’t track them.
“We’re at the receiving end,” Chad Aguillard, executive director of Catholic Charities, says. “We receive them, we welcome them into our community and help them resettle. There has been a lot of commotion and fear with Syrians. The fear is justified, but we have to check that against reality.”
State leaders are upset after the federal governor began relocating Syrian refugees in the state without notifying them.
“This is a federal program, and it was their responsibility, as the governor has stated, that they should have notified myself or governor directly,” according to the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management Director Kevin Davis.
Obama is shoving this vermin down our throats and his liberal lackeys refuse to take responsibility for the disaster.
