Tennessee Files Constitutional Challenge to Refugee Resettlement Program

Breitbart:

The Thomas More Law Center filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of the Tennessee General Assembly and the State of Tennessee in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee on Monday challenging the federal refugee resettlement program for violating the state’s sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The lawsuit places Tennessee at the center of the national debate concerning the operation of the federal refugee resettlement program.

President Trump will be holding a rally in Nashville on Wednesday to garner public support for his agenda. His revised Executive Order 13780 temporarily halting the federal refugee resettlement program and temporarily banning travel from six Middle Eastern countries goes into effect on Thursday.

  1. Go, Volunteers!!! It was the Tennessee Militia with help from the Kentucky Militia that stomped the British at the Battle of New Orleans!

  2. Funny how when states sue the government to stop immigration, “things have to work their way through the courts”. But when anyone sues to stop Trump Executive orders, some judge immediately issues a restraining order.

  3. @TN Phil. I had a Johnny Horton LP growing up. Thanks for the reminder.

    In 1814 we took a little trip
    Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississippi
    We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
    And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans
