Now normally I don’t post stories about “national” politics as most of it is irrelevant but this “white” house and state department might be the most bold we’ve seen in the short history of a land that was once a “nation” or at least a “country” called America. I’m not sure what it is now? A sewer pipeline, a garbage dump, a whore house filled with circus chimps, out of control women, fat-fuck football fans, tv watchers, and #WeakWhiteMen? Whatever it is, I’m interested in the battles between the states and DC.
Obama recently berated those who oppose allowing Syrian refugees entry to the US. “That’s shameful. That’s not American. That’s not who we are.” The State Department said that it believes state governors have little say over whether they will house refugees from Syria or anywhere else in the world, and that once they arrive, refugees can choose to live in any state they want. “They can ultimately choose wherever they want to go,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters.
The question of refugee rights has come up as many governors have said they would refuse people from Syria. The Obama administration has said it would make no changes to its plan to take up to 10,000 Syrian refugees this year. Toner said under current law, any refugees who land in the U.S. are “protected by the Constitution and federal law.” Legal experts have said they agree that there’s little states can do to stop the federal government from placing refugees in their states, even if they disagree.
