BOOM! Ted Cruz bill empowers STATES against federal government settling refugees
The TedNado is looking to empower the states to have some recourse against the federal government resettling refugees in their states.
The bill from Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Ted Poe, both of Texas, is a reaction to years of growing GOP frustration with the Obama administration’s aggressive effort to take in refugees, and resettlement across the country. Republicans continue to have doubts that refugees can be vetted to ensure they aren’t Islamic State terrorists.
The State Refugee Security Act would require the federal government to notify states at least 21 days before they seek to settle a refugee. Under the bill, if a state governor certifies that the federal government hasn’t offered enough assurances that the refugee does not pose a security risk, the state can block the resettlement effort.
It would be interesting to see who it washes out if this passes – would liberal states accept refugees more than conservative states? Very likely.
“I am encouraged that, unlike the previous administration, one of President Trump’s top priorities is to defeat radical Islamic terrorism,” he said. “To augment the efforts of the new administration, this legislation I have introduced will reinforce the authority of the states and governors to keep their citizens safe.”
BOOM! TedNado strikes again!!
On the other hand, is this even necessary since President Trump promised that he would personally arrest and walk all Muslim refugees back to the Middle East?!
