Why not just settle them in a state that wants them?



The lawsuit stated that President Barack Obama has granted a waiver to refugees who "provided material support to terrorists if, among other things, the support was 'insignificant' and the refugee 'poses no danger to the safety and security of the United States.'"

According to the lawsuit, based on that move, several Executive Branch members have expressed concern about the security. As a result, the lawsuit said Texas asked the IRC if it had plans to resettle Syrian refugees to Texas. It also said in the letter that Texas, "until further notice, will refuse to cooperate with the resettlement of any Syrian refugees in Texas."

Texas (Repubs) will lose, no State has the right to write it's own immigration laws, it is nothing more than a show for the fans, wasting State money in the process, but hey what is a little money when a point is to be made

Actually the fed Guv has no right to make immigration laws (other than standardization of the naturalization process) guess what that means? Yep, it's up to the states.
Take a constitution class along with the rest of the boobs in DC.

I suppose I knew in advance that you wouldn't be able to substantiate your claim so here it is...
All the constitution says about immigration can be found in Article I, Section 8 which says: “(Congress shall have the power) To establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization.”
That's it.
Class dismissed.

The feds don't even enforce immigration laws? So why take them serious anyways? Their immigration enforcement policies are at minimum "laughable and relaxed"

I guess that is why they keep arresting people crossing the border.

Oh yes. That imaginary "border" that people can walk over anytime and get arrested, then get brought to a shelter and get fed. Then claim asylum and then disappear into the country while they wait for a judge to deport them......
