The Texas Health and Human Services Commission filed a suit in the U.S. District Court in Dallas on December 2 asking for an immediate restraining order and a hearing by December 9 to petition for an injunction that would prevent resettlement of Syrian refugees within Texas.

VIDEO - Andy Ramirez reports on the current state of the Syrian refugee screening process. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey gave contradicting statements in hearings regarding the abilities that the United States has when screening refugees before allowing the access to America.

Speaking on the Senate floor on November 19, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) strongly condemned President Obama’s request for funding for refugee resettlement, basing his opposition on both economic and security threats found in the president’s plan.

FBI Director James Comey and Director of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson have both expressed concerns about the American SAFE Act of 2015 (H.R. 4038) introduced by the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, Republican Rep. Mike McCaul (R-Texas). 

 

First, on February 16, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen issued an junction blocking President Obama’s executive action to grant amnesty to four million illegal aliens. Then, on November 9, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans upheld Hanen's injunction. So Obama is stymied, right? Wrong, the administration has continued to act on other executive actions not covered by the court decision.
