    Federal judge dismisses Texas' lawsuit over Syrian refugees

    Federal judge dismisses Texas' lawsuit over Syrian refugees

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas' efforts to halt the arrival of Syrian refugees have been blocked by a federal judge, who rejected Republican leaders' claims that refugees pose an imminent risk or that states deserve a say in resettlements.

    The ruling comes days after presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called to block non-citizen Muslims from entering the U.S. following the Orlando nightclub massacre.

    U.S. District Judge David Godbey, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, had previously knocked Texas for offering "largely speculative hearsay" about extremists possibly infiltrating Syrian refugees. His ruling, which was signed Wednesday, rejected arguments that the Obama administration is wrongly leaving states on the sidelines when resettling refugees, which is handled by the federal government.

    "Today's decision upholds and affirms America's proud history in providing refuge for the world's most vulnerable," said Jennifer Sime, senior vice president of U.S. programs with the International Rescue Committee, which helps resettle refugees and was named in the lawsuit.


    Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton did not immediately comment on the decision or whether the state would appeal.


    Nearly 30 states vowed to ban Syrian refugees following the Paris attacks, which occurred in November and have been linked to the Islamic State group operating in Syria.


    Texas mounted the most aggressive campaign from the start, suing the federal government, which failed to halt the arrival of 21 Syrian refugees in December.


    The Obama administration says refugee vetting is rigorous and can take up to two years.


    Trump, who has renewed his call for a temporary ban on Muslim immigrants, told supporters at Wednesday in Atlanta that the United States is taking in thousands of refugees when they "don't think like us" and we don't know "who the hell they are."

    The STATES need to change their argument to one of cause, threat or cost to one of Constitutional Powers. The federal government has no authority or power at all of any kind to admit even 1 immigrant into the US under the US Constitution. Only STATES have this right under Article 1, Section 9 of US Constitution, balanced by the federal authority after 1808 to prohibit it.

    US Constitution

    Article 1. Section 9.

    The migration or importation of such persons as any of the states now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a tax or duty may be imposed on such importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each person.

    If we don't uphold and enforce our Constitution, we will lose our country.

    These Judges everyone wants to wail about as some sort of special people that we are to blindly follow on these types of issues are political hacks, graduates in most cases of globalist teaching law schools, who almost to a person hasn't actually ever read the Constitution, all they've read is what other globalist taught lawyers and judges write about it, and the same before them, and the same before them.

    We haven't almost lost our country without reason. We've been the victim of the great enemy within.

    Remember, the federal court system never once in the history of the United States ruled against slavery. These are the precedents taught in our law schools. It took 2 million American soldiers who volunteered to risk their lives, farms, businesses, families to fight the bloodiest war Americans have ever fought with the greatest casualties in our history to end this travesty in the United States, when a simple correct legal conclusion from a federal court, a state court, a state Supreme Court, and the US Supreme Court could have brought it all to an end with a stroke of a pen.
