In an effort to keep terror out of his state, Governor Abbott refuses to let Syrian refugees into Texas, and he's taking his plea to the Oval Office.
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.
The Texas Governor, and his fellow colleagues, are standing for America, while Obama is standing for Muslims. No surprise there. As he lets them infiltrate our communities, its up to politicians like Abbott to stop terror from spilling the blood of innocent Americans.
a lot of military aged males
OBAMA is a very incompetent so called leader. As an American, I am outraged!! Obama and Hillary are trying to take America down by the hands of Islamic terrorist! Obama is a disgrace!! Covering for Islam and blaming Republicans? This imbecile has NO SHAME!
