BREAKING: Texas Governor Defies Obama, Says NO to Muslim ‘Refugees’

Good for Greg Abbott and Texas! I hope Oklahoma follows suit as does the rest of the nation. Governor Greg Abbott just announced that he is joining Michigan and Alabama in saying no to Muslim Refugees from Syria. After the Paris attack, he’s just not willing to take a chance on them since there is no way to vet them and weigh the risks. Abbott has also called on Obama to stop trying to bring Syrian refugees into the US anywhere. Not that he’ll listen. He doubled down on it this morning while addressing the G20. Obama actually called for Europe and the US to take in more refugees. He followed that stunning statement with a monster of a lie – that we perform in-depth security checks and thoroughly vet the refugees coming here. That’s the biggest lie of his presidency and he knows it. So does America. Just say no to refugee resettlement.


From Breitbart:

Texas Governor Greg Abbott says Texas will not allow Syrian refugees to be relocated into Texas in the wake of the Paris terrorist attack. He also called upon President Barack Obama to halt the importation of any additional Syrian refugees into the U.S.

“Given the tragic attacks in Paris and the threats we have already seen, Texas cannot participate in any program that will result in Syrian refugees – any one of whom could be connected to terrorism – being resettled in Texas,” Governor Abbott said a letter to President Obama. “Effective today, I am directing the Texas Health & Human Services Commission’s Refugee Resettlement Program to not participate in the resettlement of any Syrian refugees in the State of Texas. And I urge you, as President, to halt your plans to allow Syrians to be resettled anywhere in the United States.”

The Texas governor joins other state’s governors in taking action to stop the importation of potential terrorists. At least one of the Paris terrorists was a Syrian refugee who had recently entered Europe.

Michigan’s governor Rick Snyder said on Sunday that his state would postpone any efforts to accept Syrian refugees, according to a Breitbart News report. “There will be difficult days ahead for the people of France and they remain in our thoughts and prayers,” the Michigan governor stated. “It’s also important to remember that these attacks are the efforts of extremists and do not reflect the peaceful ways of people of Middle Eastern descent here and around the world.”

Alabama Governor Robert Bentley also said his state will not participate in accepting any Syrian refugees at this time. Fox News reported the governor saying, “[a]fter full consideration of this weekend’s attacks of terror on innocent citizens in Paris … I will not stand complicit to a policy that places the citizens of Alabama in harm’s way.”

Emphasizing the potential danger to Texans and other Americans, Governor Abbott said, “Neither you nor any federal official can guarantee that Syrian refugees will not be part of any terroristic activity. As such, opening our door to them irresponsibly exposes our fellow Americans to unacceptable peril.”

After the atrocity in Paris where at least 132 were murdered and over 350 were injured, I don’t blame Abbott at all. We should never have been bringing in these refugees to begin with. There are ISIS terrorists among their numbers and to throw open the doors and invite them in is asking for a major terrorist attack. Something Obama specializes in. I also think that every mosque in America should now be thoroughly examined and any of them that even have a remote connection to terrorists should be shut down. That goes for Islamic charities and organizations as well. If we don’t do this and fast, there will be dead Americans in the streets just as there were in Paris. ISIS released a video yesterday threatening Washington, DC. They are also threatening New York and 15 others states. It’s not if, but when we get hit now. Texas is heading some of that off as is Michigan and Alabama. Obama is trying to escalate it. Time for the whole nation to defy Obama.
