The 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
The Obama administration’s dumping of overwhelmingly Muslim “refugees” on states and in so doing, forcing the states to incur financial costs to support the “refugees,” is a contravention of the 10th Amendment. Now, the State of Tennessee is finally doing something about it.
Joel Ebert reports for The Tennessean that yesterday morning, March 13, 2017, Tennessee became the first state in the nation to sue the federal government over refugee resettlement on the grounds of the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Other states have sued the federal government over refugee resettlement but on different legal grounds.
The defendants named in the lawsuit include the U.S. Department of State, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
The 15-page lawsuit:
Contends that the federal government has unduly forced states to pay for the refugee resettlement program, and is not complying with the Refugee Act of 1980, which was designed to create a permanent procedure for the admission of refugees into the United States.
Maintains that the federal government’s forced resettlement of refugees in Tennessee has led the plaintiffs to “suffer significant and irreparable harm unless this Court intervenes”.
Asks the court to force the federal government to stop resettling refugees in Tennessee until all costs associated with the settlement are incurred by the federal government.
The lawsuit also points out that although Tennessee has opted out of the federal refugee resettlement program, the federal government continues to send refugees to Tennessee, and appointed Catholic Charities of Tennessee to administer the program. The refugees forced upon Tennessee requires the state to fund the resettlement with $7 billion from Medicaid, “amounting to 20 percent of its overall state budget — money that is needed to fund services that are critical to the health and welfare of countless Tennesseans.”...
The usual groups — American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee and the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition — have attacked the lawsuit, saying it will negatively affect the state’s refugee community and perpetuate a culture of fear.

program to settle non-White invaders in the Volunteer State.
