Court rules states have to accept Syrian refugees
The Washington Times ^ | October 3, 2016 | Stephen Dinan

Posted on 10/03/2016 1:00:24 PM PDT by jazusamo

States that refuse to help resettle Syrian refugees are guilty of illegal discrimination, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, delivering a judicial rebuke to GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence, who as Indiana’s governor had tried to halt Syrian resettlement.

Judge Richard Posner, writing for the three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, said there’s no evidence that Syrians are more dangerous, and he said even if they are, allowing Indiana to refuse to resettle them would only foist the problem onto neighboring states.

“Federal law does not allow a governor to deport to other states immigrants he deems dangerous,” Judge Posner wrote, saying the governor should instead report his fears to federal bureaucrats for redress.

Why despite any misgivings I may have about him, there is no alternative but to vote for Trump. This must end.

Posner’s name keeps being floated as a future Dem nominee for SCOTUS.

Just something for you NeverTrumpers to think about.

Some state should declare itself a “sanctuary state” and tell the feds they aren’t going to enforce or comply with any federal regulations at all. Then we could all have place to migrate to.

Posner is an anarchist. He detests Christians and will roll over and play dead for any strong man who comes along.

His name used to be linked with Scalia and Bork. He ain’t no Scalia or Bork. Just a tool ...

Your post is correct but needs additional discussion.

If residents of states believe that these Syrians are a clear and present danger that would be a basis for a break-up of the Union.

This is serious stuff...

"...delivering a judicial rebuke to GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence, who as Indiana’s governor had tried to halt Syrian resettlement."

They also delivered a rebuke to millions of ordinary Americans who are alarmed by being forced to live alongside potentially unlimited numbers of Muslims who will not assimilate and who are instructed by their holy book to kill anyone who doesn't accept their religion.

Court rules states have to accept Syrian refugees

If the congress voted not to allow syrian "refugees"INVADERS into the Country, yet the Dictator in Chief went ahead, what authority does this "judge" have to force states to comply?

It would be different if the individuals were not bound by allah and sharia to take their constitution and install it wherever they go.
These “refugees” are enemy combatants here with one thing in mind, to replace the American constitution with that of islam.

They are an occupying invasive enemy force.
Nothing more than enemies of the state.

This certainly will press for a “political answer.” Maybe Posner just did Pence a great political favor.

Reagan made some BAD judicial appointments.
Sandra Day O’Connor was a doozy.

Mark Levin was in on some of the vetting. He says these people just came in and flat-out lied to them.

Pence might do well to do this anyhow and force a facedown. The Constitution promises the states protection from “invasion” — and the claim that this stream of refugees is no more dangerous than any others is ludicrous or else Pence has the worst lawyers in the USA.

Patriots are reminded that the only race-related right that the states have amended the Constitution to expressly protect deals with voting rights as evidenced by the 15th Amendment, that amendment giving the feds the specific power to strengthen only race-related rights that deal with voting issues.

And since the race-related issue that the court is addressing is clearly outside the scope of voting rights, the politically correct federal court does not know what it is talking about imo.

The claim that there is “no evidence” that these are any worse than others, sounds just crazy. Does Pence have lousy lawyers? Could FR scout this data for him?

Bullcrap. There is no requirement that the country take in immigrants.

Much less that we bring them here ourselves.

That’s the key. These are foreigners brought to our country by our own government.

I thought they voted several months back to block further syrian refugees, but of course Paul Ryno and Mitch “0bama’s Bitch” could’ve backed off when their master showed his displeasure.

Postpone their release in Ellis Island Style internment camps until after the election. Make public threats to divert Welfare money to accommodate Obama’s Federal mandate. Use eminent domain to seize Federal Buildings and wildlife refuges for the facility. Watch the judge loose his libtard mind.

If that’s what Posner really, truly wants then it would seem that FR itself would be about the best evidence scout there could be.

Jim Rob ought to shout out to Pence. This deserves at least the old college try.
