Default Texas drops out of Obama's refugee program after he refuses to thoroughly vet them

Amazing how authoritarian Obama is to our citizens but how liberal he is to criminals and people of other nations.

Texas informed the Office of Refugee Resettlement in a letter that it will be withdrawing from the program on Jan. 31, 2017. The letter comes on the heels of several weekend terror attacks across the United States

The administration has refused to approve a security plan by the state of Texas aimed at ensuring that refugees are only resettled following in-depth security checks.

Abbott said Texas would not accept a single refuge until proper security measures are put in place.

“The federal government’s refugee settlement program is riddled with serious problems that pose a threat to our nation,” the governor said in a statement. “The director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the director of national intelligence have repeatedly declared their inability to fully screen refugees from terrorist-based nations. Even with the inability to properly vet refugees from Syria and countries known to be supporters or propagators of terrorism, President Obama is now ineptly proposing a dramatic increase in the number of refugees to be resettled in the U.S.”

Texas has faced threats from ISIS and arrested earlier this year one Iraqi refugee who had planned to detonate explosives in a Houston mall.

Can the city withdraw from paying federal taxes because those same taxes go to cities who openly defy federal law?

Like, its amazing the NCAA can move their venues from NC over their bathroom law, but will still host events in sanctuary cities where they, literally, ignore federal law with zero repercussions.

'The law sets a bad example' = The law sets an example we don't agree with. People who break the law that we do agree with, they're cool.

KKKlinton still thinks she's going to turn Texas blue. She dropped out of Colorado to concentrate on Texas and is failing hard there.
