Judge Denies Texas Request To Block Entry Of Nine Syrian Refugees

Judge Denies Texas Request To Block Entry Of Nine Syrian Refugees

Quote:
A U.S. federal court judge dismissed a request by Texas shortly after it was filed on Wednesday seeking a restraining order to block the imminent entry into the state of nine Syrian refugees, saying the evidence presented was "largely speculative hearsay."

This is the second attempt by Texas to seek immediate court help to halt the refugees, with Texas saying the U.S. government had not met its legal obligation to consult with local officials about the resettlement.

The Texas action came after U.S. Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump touched off a global firestorm by saying that Muslims should be denied entry into the United States.

"The (Texas) Commission has failed to show by competent evidence that any terrorists actually have infiltrated the refugee program, much less that these particular refugees are terrorists intent on causing harm," U.S District Judge David Godbey said in his decision.
Texans....and entire state of looneys with their heads up their arse? Or just a few politicians taking advantage of the knee jerk emotional responses from their base?

Yeah, these Syrian families are so scary. Here's an article talking about those being moved into Texas and Indiana.

Syrian Refugees Resettled in Texas, Indiana | Al Jazeera America

A family of 6 moved to the Dallas area to be near family of theirs that already lives there, and another couple and their 4 daughters moved into Houston.

Better get under your beds, it's getting scary with these families coming over here!

Texas may not have been their best option. Texans will not put up with the coddling other states will. They get out of line, Texans will straighten them out.
