Tennessee Becomes First State To SUE Feds Over Dumping Refugees In Region Without Permission

on

Clearly, Tennessee is fed up!

Lawmakers and citizens have been forced to accept refugees into their state by the federal government, despite major opposition from residents in the area.

So..what are they doing to do about it?

They’re suing the feds!

According to reports, Tennessee became the first state in the nation on Monday to sue the federal government over refugee resettlement on the grounds of the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Hell yeah!

The Tennessean reports:

The lawsuit, filed on behalf of several state lawmakers Monday morning in the western district of Tennessee, alleges that the federal government has violated the 10th Amendment, which says the federal government possesses only the powers delegated to it by the U.S. Constitution and that all other powers are reserved for the states.

The charge that the federal government is not complying with the Refugee Act of 1980, based on the 10th Amendment, makes Tennessee’s lawsuit the first of its kind. Other states have sued the federal government over refugee resettlement but on different legal grounds.

Joining the lawsuit are Sen. John Stevens, R-Huntingdon, and Rep. Terri Lynn Weaver, R-Lancaster.

“The Constitution does not allow the Federal Government to force me as the elected representative of the 24th Senate District to implement federal programs while they sit in Washington insulated from the consequences,” Stevens said in a news release.

“The only way we can get back to our constitutional beginnings and the intent birthed by our Founding Fathers is to go and take it back,” Weaver said. “We are looking forward to linking arms with the Thomas More Law Center for the long haul to regain sovereignty for our great state.”

It’s a great time to be a Tennessean.

Perhaps the rest of the nation should join in on the lawsuit.

    The fact is that we cannot afford to support all these people. Also Islam IS NOT A RELIGION. It is an IDEOLOGY THAT DOES NOT GO WITH OUR CONSTITUTION OR BILL OF RIGHTS. The govt. is letting these people in to take us over and institute Sharia law. Build mosques etc.

    Yvonne is soooo right! This is a play to change the USA and become an Islamic country. A little at a time, more and more Muslims being let in. A lot of the so called refugees are just opportunist wanting a better way of life, not being
    killed because of religion . They do not come under the refugee definition . Obama want Muslim religion here and want Sharia Law.

    This disruptive and oppositional cultural infusion into American communities is threatening the vibrancy of our nation. Historically, immigrants were required to learn our language and adopt our values and secure gainful employment before they were granted citizenship. That method of societal integration worked well for America for over 200 years. Now it seems like we are giving citizenship away with little participation from those who whish to enjoy the benefits and freedoms and rights of being a United States citizen. No one appreciates anything when you give it away. When people must earn an opportunity it is always valued and appreciated because it took time and effort to gain. Let’s move forward by going backwards in time and raise the cost of admission to the best country in the world.

    The muslims are an invading mass. They did not bring weapons they may have brought disease but the fact is that they are invading and through the use of the liberals trying to change laws so that they can legally change America into a muslim country by fear of bring called a islamphobia are racist are what other things they will say to get their way. Enough is enough. We owe them refugees nothing and we need to stop them from coming into our country period. They are a disease that needs to be cut out. They should have no rights into our country and no rights in our country. Those that assimilate completely may have a chance. But with strict guide lines. We definitely do not give them money to open stores we do not pay them. If they have money then fine if they are just coming to get free stuff then no.

      You sure hit the nail on the head I have been saying that for quite some time Barack Obama was the SOB that started this at the pace it is moving and we as American people are going to have to put a stop to it.

    We need to sue obama and hillary for forcing them muslims,on America. We need to show them that they are not above the law. Make obama pay for his bad choices that he did not even consider us Americans feelings are rights are even our safety when he forced them muslims on America. She him. Ban all Muslims from coming to America except those that want to really become American.
