The American Civil Liberties Union has launched a lawsuit against Gov. Mike Pence, R-Indiana, accusing the chief executive of violating the Constitution by blocking Syrian refugees from his state.
“This lawsuit is calling out Governor Pence on his unconstitutional bluff,” said Judy Rabinovitz, deputy legal director of the ACLU’s immigrants’ rights project, in a press release. “He does not have the power to pick and choose between which lawfully admitted refugees he is willing to accept. Singling out Syrian refugees for exclusion from Indiana is not only ethically wrong, it is unconstitutional. Period.”
In a story on WND:
Pence announced on Nov. 16 a halt to all Syrian refugees to Indiana, saying in a statement he was concerned about Hoosiers’ safety.
“In the wake of the horrific attacks in Paris, effective immediately, I am directing all state agencies to suspend the resettlement of additional Syrian refugees in the state of Indiana pending assurances from the federal government that proper security measures have been achieved.”
In “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance,” renowned activist Pamela Geller provides the answer, offering proven, practical guidance on how freedom lovers can stop jihadist initiatives in local communities.
Pence is among 25 governors who’ve blocked refugees from Syria from entering their states – a decision slammed by President Obama on Twitter as counter to American values.
“That’s not who we are,” Obama tweeted. “And it’s not what we’re going to do.”
The ACLU filed suit in federal court on behalf of Exodus Refugee Immigration, Inc., a nonprofit that was trying to help resettle Syrians in Indiana, the Washington Post reported.
I say “kudos” to Governor Pence and the 25 governors who are blocking refugees from Syria. I support what Senator Cruz said in response to President Hussein Obama’s remarks:
“Who in their right mind would want to bring over tens of thousands of Syrian refugees, when we cannot determine, when the administration cannot determine, who is and isn’t a terrorist?”
If the FBI and DHS could “guarantee” proper vetting of the Syrian refugees – which they can’t – then, they could be allowed in. However, because Obama has had such a great “open borders” free-for-all policy in place during his administration, if we continue to let in thousands more or even hundreds of thousands, we are also continuing to put our nation at risk. If anyone thinks that some of these scumbags are not already here – think again. The two Boston Marathon terrorists were refugees. In fact, Senator Sessions just released a list of 12 jihadis who were in America just since August 2015 who have been involved in terrorist attacks. This list alone shows that Obama and the ACLU can talk all they want, but that will NOT solve the problem of putting our nation at risk. If you want to STOP the problem, solve the problem. Enforce our current laws of immigration. Secure our borders. Suspend any immigration UNTIL America has in place a proper and thorough vetting process that prevents the problems of Radical Terrorism that are happening in France. As long as America accepts terrorists into our country – we will continue to have terrorist problems. I bet if I asked for a show of hands, how many of you believe that Obama really cares about solving the problem, keeping terrorists out, securing our borders, and enforcing the current laws – I doubt that any of you reading this would raise your hands. This administration is incapable of vetting refugees. As long as Barack Hussein Obama is in office, it’s not a matter of IF terrorism will occur, it’s a matter of WHEN it will occur next.
