    Governors of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Ohio, Wisconsin, among others have all issued similar statements, promising to block Syrian refugees from entering their states.

    Problem is, states don’t really have a choice.

    According to Think Progress’ Ian Millhiser, the states are limited in their power to resist the intake of refugees, an action that’s specifically under the president’s purview.

    Under the Refugee Act of 1980, “President Obama has explicit statutory authorization to accept foreign refugees into the United States.”

    In a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Rick Scott said “it is our understanding that the state does not have the authority to prevent the federal government from funding the relocation of these Syrian refugees to Florida even without state support.”

    Instead, Scott said Congress ought “to take immediate and aggressive action to prevent President Obama and his administration from using any federal tax dollars to fund the relocation of up to 425 Syrian refugees” to Florida.

    Presidential candidate Rand Paul also introduced a bill Monday that imposed an “immediate moratorium on visas for refugees.”

    The U.S. plans to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next fiscal year. Some Democrats, including presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley said that number should increase to 65,000 Syrian refugees. Either way, state governors will have to yield to Obama’s plan.

    According to The New York Times, the U.S. has accepted 1,854 Syrian refugees as of Sept. 2015. Over the same time period, Germany has accepted nearly 93,000 refugees.

    The tenth amendment is all they need. If it is not in the Constitution the states do not have to comply.

    Just checked out the Cabela's black Friday insert. Lots of guns on sale. That is why ISIS will not try that shit in this country. Too many people with guns

    And the number of people hoping and praying that this will be the case has just doubled to two - our own Mr. Pete and the director of CAIR.

    Congratulations, Petey. That's a pretty scummy, AIDS-ridden bedfellow you're laying with there. (As an aside, if he says he wants to play a game of "just the tip" with your asshole, I'd advise against it. :secret:)

    If they have to come here then send them all to the Dallas Cowboys...they're used to dealing with animals.
