I'm guessing it's more symbolic than anything but perhaps with enough lawyers/all the wiggle room in the world of law these days, who knows....it might be achievable.

I'm all for LEGAL immigration. And for the need of strict checks for anyone who is entering into this country. Given this fact and the fact that I have zero faith/confidence in our government to be able to enforce such a task, I think the governors/states have a more than valid concern.
It's about F-ing time that they start standing up to little barry

Than the states should do what Florida did during the Cubana refugee debacale. Resettle them into containment camps and don't let them out unless it's back to whatever terror sponsored country they came from.

I've always felt the politicians who proclaim to care so much for them, they can lead by example and take a few into their own homes to care for. And fund them out of their own checkbooks.

The feds don't get it. The masses don't want to take the risk. It only takes a few idiots with guns to destroy many peoples lives. We have enough problems as it is without adding more.
What is wrong with Obama? Seriously is he actually trying to destroy America?
And yet another liberal waste of skin may still become the next potus. If she does, you might as well start learning the Quaran.(did I spell it right? Who cares!)

Look folks, I'm not saying that the Repub candidates are reminding us of Reagan, Ike and Teddy R, but if Hillary gets elected, and we end up with possibly 16 straight years of Democratic rule, this country will never recover. Your kids and grandkids will never know what it feels like to live in a great America.

That is absurd.

If we are going to start barring religious freedom in the US, could we please get rid of the fundamentalists of all religions, especially the ones who try to control the government and our laws?

Most of these state governors saying they won't accept Syrian refugees are being dishonest. The law and the Constitution are very clear: states have no say whatsoever in immigration matters! Only the Federal government does. This has been settled in the Supreme Court. The states have zero power and the governors know it.

Even if a Syrian refugee is admitted to a welcoming state, like NY or California, there is no way to stop that person from relocating to any other state in the U.S. There is no border guard on the California/Nevada border checking papers or any other state line. If you live in one of these refusing states you just might have a Syrian neighbor some day and there's nothing that can done about it. Just go say hi to your new neighbors, chances are they are good people.

I'm appalled that these governors would take a false position on an issue to score cheap political points, knowing full well they can't deliver on what they say. It's quite unethical.
