“Today we struck a blow for Liberty by finally adopting SJR467,” State Senator Mark Norris (R-Collierville), the co-sponsor of the resolution who shepherded it through the State Senate, tells Breitbart News.

I’ll be in DC tomorrow for meetings, so consequently I won’t be on top of all the latest news on the refugee front until I’m back on Thursday (and there is a lot of news)!

We assume Governor Brownback also gave the official notice and thus both governors could sue the feds as per the Thomas More Law Center states’ rights case, and the State of Tennessee’s planned legal challenge.

    Everyone should send a similar mail or email at least to their state reps. Here is what I sent:

    Dear Mr. [rep],

    Are you aware of Tennessee’s legislation to sue the Feds over the forced refugee program in their state? Here is good reference to their program:

    WHY ARE YOU NOT DOING THE SAME IN OHIO?

    We all know the horrendous economic and social problems the refugees are causing in both Europe, and now, our country!

    PLEASE initiate such a bill and STOP the refugees from being sent to our state!

    Thank you,

  16. Tennessee legislature votes to sue feds over refugee program? Well, don’t forget to add POTUS Barry Obama and his whole administration who started this surge. Slap them all with a multi-million dollar lawsuit that have them tied up in the courts for the next 50 years.
