    Growing Number of States Refuse to Accept Syrian 'Refugees' in Wake of Paris Attacks

    A growing number of states are refusing to take in Syrian 'refugees' amid heightened security concerns following Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris.

    Michigan and Alabama were the first states in the country to refuse relocating Syrian refugees on Sunday, and they have now been joined by Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Indiana, Illinois and Massachusetts.

    “I will not stand complicit to a policy that places the citizens of Alabama in harm’s way,” Alabama Gov. Bentley said. "I will not place Alabamians at even the slightest, possible risk of an attack on our people."

    In a letter to President Obama today, Texas Gov. Abbott said he is directing the Texas Health and Human Services Commission's Refugee Resettlement program to stop relocating Syrian refugees. "Given the tragic attacks in Paris and the threats we have already seen, Texas cannot participate in any program that will result in Syrian refugees -- any one of whom could be connected to terrorism -- being resettled in Texas."

    On Twitter, Arkansas Gov. Hutchinson joined the other governors in opposition to resettling refugees. Arkansas already lagged behind other states in receiving refugees; in 2013 and 2014, the state welcomed only 14 of them, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

    Not that I mind this one bit, but what's to stop terrorists from simply coming in as a refugee to just any old state that still WILL take them and then driving to one of these states to commit some heinous act?? It's not like it's difficult to cross boarders between states!

    Unless all 50 states do this (and they won't), isn't it possible these states are just putting targets on their foreheads?

    It just feels very "knee-jerk" reactionary. It seems to me it has to be all or nothing.

    Obama just released 5 from Gitmo. It hasn't even been three days - this guy is incompetent and should be impeached.

    Not saying it even has a chance of happening, but I can always wish.

    Add Canada to that list. They can just sneak across the thousands of miles of open borders.
