It is uncertain as to whether the Governors have the legal right to prevent Syrian refugees for entering their states, but they are making a stand against a White House that has no plans to protect the American public from terrorists coming into the United States with the tide of refugees.
Twenty-six state Governors have told Obama they will not accept any Syrian refugees. They have suggested a delay, a time to investigate and determine the security of their citizens, in light of the Paris ISIS attacks, before accepting any immigrants. Some states have flat out refused giving shelter. While others have suggested accepting Christian refugees, who have escaped most certain death in Syria at the hands of ISIS.
Thus far, these are the states:
Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Senator Ted Cruz stated,
‘There is no meaningful risk of Christians committing acts of terror,' Cruz said yesterday at a campaign stop in South Carolina, as he called for Muslim refugees to be barred from entering the United States, according to the Washington Post.
‘If there were a group of radical Christians pledging to murder anyone who had a different religious view than they, we would have a different national security situation,' Cruz said, who criticized the Obama administration for ‘pretend[ing] as if there is nob religious aspect to this.'
This last suggestion has resulted in a torrent of insult and abuse from Obama down, specifically aimed at Cruz.
‘And when I hear folks say that, well, maybe we should just admit the Christians and not the Muslims, when I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which person fleeing from a war-torn country would be admitted, when some of those folks themselves come from families who benefited from protection when they were fleeing political persecution, that's shameful,' the president said. ‘That's not American.'
What is not American, is the President not taking care of the people who elected him. To be brazen enough to ignore all the evidence that ISIS and Islam are one in the same and to suggest that those who choose to protect the citizens of the United States first are un-American is indefensible.
Cruz is correct in his statement that there are no meaningful acts of terror done by Christians and only Islam is slaughtering innocent lives in the name of Allah.
What does Obama have to lose if he were to state the obvious, that Islam is the religious force behind ISIS and is responsible for the be-headings and crucifixions of Christians? Why will he not call it as it is? What does he have to gain for championing this religion?
Or is this more evidence that Obama's early roots in Islam have sunk deep into his overall world view?

While all this might seem great, Judge Napolitano made a startling statement that state governors might not have a choice but to accept these so-called refugees.
