Judge dismisses Tennessee States’ Rights case on refugee resettlement

Posted on March 22, 2018

A Tennessee judge this week moved to dismiss a case that would have, we believe, once and for all, settled the issue of whether the federal government can place refugees in a state and expect state taxpayers to pay for many of their needs.

Tennessee: World Relief accused of not taking care of their refugees

Posted on June 14, 2017

When refugees were initially being placed in the county where I live (now more than 10 years ago), our community’s first impression was that the ‘Christian’ resettlement agency—the Virginia Council of Churches—was basically dropping off a couple hundred refugees, placing them in deplorable housing, and then not providing them with some of their basic needs.

Posted on May 1, 2017

The Republican Senator from Tennessee might be called out-of-step with his constituents in his home state where the Tennessee legislature voted to sue the federal government over refugee resettlement and filed suit in March.

Elected officials have little say over the process. In SD they are trying to get some […]

Utah, Tennessee seeing cuts in budget and staff as flow of refugees to US slows; it is their own fault!

Posted on February 25, 2017

Sorry to keep repeating myself, but someone once told me people have to hear things seven times before it sinks in. One side benefit of the Trump refugee slowdown (but 50,000 isn’t that low! as I explained here) is that the public is learning that the federal refugee contractors have failed to keep their end […]
