In a letter this week, the Office of Refugee Resettlement threatens states concerned about resettling Syrians with punitive responses if they refuse to accept the refugees. ORR explains that states may not refuse ORR-funded benefits for refugees on the basis of religion and national origin.
âAccordingly, states may not categorically deny ORR-funded benefits and services to Syrian refugees,â ORR Director Robert Carey wrote in the letter. âAny state with such a policy would not be in compliance with the State Plan requirements, applicable statutes, and their own assurances, and could be subject to enforcement action, including suspension and termination.â

Obama is a real tough guy in the area of lawfare. Otherwise, he’s a sissy.
How many soldiers do you think would fire on American citizens for refusing to take in these "refugees?"
“on the basis of religion and national origin.”
How about refusing them on the basis of security for the people in the state?
Two words: sanctuary city.
So the threat is - ‘if you don’t take these aliens, we won’t let you take any more illegal aliens’?
Obammy proposes to wage war on state’s rights?
Thanks, CONgre$$,, you’re spineless leadership is transformative.. as is Obammy’s agenda.
Hard to tell what his strategy is. If in the end it turns out he’s enabling terrorist attacks in order to justify martial law and remain in office past his term, he should not only be impeached and removed from office, but also put on trial for his life.
Somehow, I look at this as quartering a muslim army....rather than immigration.
There was a time in this country when Mr. “Occupy White House” might have faced “impeachment action”.
that is how i read it.
interesting threat if accurate...
All of the states should let him do his “enforcement”.
Everything he pulls will reflect on Hillary. She will either have to back it or go against him.
Play their game. Deny the benefits, go to court. By the time the decision comes he’ll be out of office.
