    27 Governors Say They Wont Accept Syrian Refugees

    Here's a map of every state refusing to accept Syrian refugees

    In the wake of Friday's deadly terrorist attacks in Paris, more than twenty US governors have said they won't allow Syrian refugees to resettle in their state.
    Related Governors can't keep out refugees. But they can make their lives miserable.





    As of Tuesday morning, 27 governors had issued statements saying they would bar Syrian refugees from settling in their states, citing fears that violent extremists will masquerade as refugees in order to gain entry to the United States.
    Legally, these proclamations have little effect; states don't have the authority to bar refugees from settling within their borders. But they can ask the State Department not to send refugees there. And once the refugees have arrived, they can try to withhold state funds to help them learn English, get job training, or help their kids succeed at school.
    The growing list of states that will not accept Syrian refugees currently includes Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin.
    Twenty-six of those states are led by Republican governors. Just one, New Hampshire, has a Democratic governor, Maggie Hassan.
    "There may be those who will try to take advantage of the generosity of our country and the ability to move freely within our borders through this federal resettlement program, and we must ensure we are doing all we can to safeguard the security of Americans," Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said in a statement on the issue.
    Many Republicans issued their proclamations over Twitter:

    Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush have not gone as far as to call for the outright ban of Syrian refugees but have instead suggested that the US should limit refugee admissions to Christians (who make up about 10 percent of Syria's population).
    Only thirteen governors — all Democrats, except for Governor Gary Herbert of Utah — have issued statements at this time in support of the resettlement of Syrian refugees.

    Actually Governors can keep refugees out of their state. The federal government has no constitutional power or authority to dump migrants or imported persons into a state that doesn't want or need them.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
