Looking for one brave and patriotic governor! Lawsuit ready to file against refugee program, needs only a plaintiff
Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 3, 2015
But one important caveat. The governor must be from one of the 12 Wilson Fish states.
If you live in one of these states, you have your marching orders starting tomorrow!
Your governor must be deluged with requests to join a suit being prepared by a nationally renowned public interest law firm specializing in cases involving the US Constitution. Here are the key states in which the so-called Wilson Fish alternative resettlement plan is ripe for a challenge:
Now this is the breaking news from Breitbart reporter Michael Patrick Leahy:
The Thomas More Law Center, a well respected public interest law firm, is ready to file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the $1 billion a year U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program and is looking for a governor to be the plaintiff in a case that can be filed on short notice.
The Refugee Resettlement Program, which has been in operation for more than three decades, brings 100,000 refugees a year, 40 percent of whom are Muslim, into the United States. As Breitbart News reported previously, the Obama administration intends to bring 10,000 Syrian refugees to the United States in 2016, despite testimony by the director of the FBI these refugees cannot be vetted and polls that show more than 10 percent of the refugees have a positive view of ISIS.
Dick Thompson, the executive director of the Thomas More Law Center and a former prosecutor in Michigan, tells Breitbart News that the public interest law firm has devoted more than six months and much of its legal staff researching the legal authority by which President Obama authorizes un-elected and unaccountable “voluntary agencies” (VOLAGs) to place refugees in states without receiving the permission of the state’s governor.
“We’ve drafted a 16 page complaint that we can utilize for any one of the Wilson-Fish state governors. All we need is for one of these governors from a Wilson-Fish state to say I want to file a lawsuit, and we could file one on their behalf within a few days. Moreover, our representation is without charge,” Thompson says.
The basis of the lawsuit is that the program, as currently operated, violates the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution.
But, don’t forget, even if you are deluging your governor’s office you can still do this too….
Action Alert: Call your members of the House and Senate at 202-224-3121 and ask them to vigorously oppose the Refugee Resettlement funding contained in the Omnibus Spending Bill that will be voted on by 12-11-15! Please call by this Friday, Dec. 4th.
