So I really only posted this because I have a question.
But first there's a law from 1980 that requires the federal goverment to be able to answer questions on refugees. This isn't happening and people are
really not happy.
"Abbot and Paxton have cited concerns about security and the adequacy of refugee screening for their opposition. Resettlement leaders have reiterated
that the security screening of refugees, administered by the U.S. Department of State, is a rigorous process that can take up to two years and
includes background and biometric checks against intelligence databases.
At least 242 Syrian refugees have been resettled in Texas since 2012. That number is relatively small for Texas — a hotbed for refugee resettlement
— but the count of Syrian refugees was expected to increase significantly in the next year as the United States prepares to take in as many as
10,000 Syrian refugees.
Abbott had directed resettlement nonprofits in Texas to halt the resettlement of any Syrian refugees last month. After the International Rescue
Committee informed the state it was planning to resettle two families in Dallas in early December, the state warned the nonprofit that it was at risk
of being sued or losing its state contract if it moved forward."
My question is why bother to go through all this? Wouldn't it be easier to take refugees and then deport them for not following the rules or
The only point I see in suing is to be vocal about how these people are not properly vetted.
