Ten pro-refugee groups, led by the infamous Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), are calling for the year-long ban on refugee resettlement in Texas to be overturned.
“Today, we have a large multifaith, multicultural group of people coming together … to stand united to let the world know that Texas welcomes refugees of all backgrounds,” said Faizan Syed, executive director of the Texas DFW chapter of CAIR, during last week’s joint press conference.
“And that we unequivocally condemn and stand against the governor’s decision to not allow refugees to come to our great state,” he added.
These left-wing organizations publicly proclaimed that diversity is our strength, and the flooding of Texas with potentially dangerous third-world refugees must continue.
“One of the guiding principles of our founding fathers, a moral imperative and the framework of our nation was to ensure that the United States be a country of refuge. That’s who we are, that’s what our country stands for,” said Laila Whitman Rumsey, director of the Dallas chapter of the Muslim American Society’s Public Affairs and Civic Engagement division.
“Welcoming refugees gives us a more perfect union, promotes our general welfare and secures the blessing of liberty for ourselves and our posterity,” she added.
“Those passengers on the Mayflower were escaping religious persecution much like today’s refugees and immigrants. Now what does that say about us?” said Leroy Peña, the national director of the Red Handed Warrior Society.
The speakers, of course, said that Texas Republicans were motivated by hatred in their decision to reject refugees and even compared their behavior to that of Nazis.
“It’s unfortunate that Gov. Abbott once again chose to make Texas distinct with its hate,” said Imam Omar Suleiman, president of the Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research and Faith Forward Dallas.
“Gov. Abbott’s decision to not accept refugees is one of the darkest stains in Texas history,” said Domingo Garcia, president of the League of United Latin American Citizens.
“That is un-Christian, that is un-Texas, un-American, cheap politics being played by Gov. Abbott,” Garcia added.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced that Texas would be the first state to reject refugees following President Trump’s executive order that made participation in the refugee resettlement program voluntary:
Even as Republican Party governors throughout the country accept third-world refugees, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has refused to accept the admittance of these potentially dangerous foreigners into his state.
Abbott made it official by sending a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, citing border security concerns as his reasoning for rejecting the refugee resettlement program in his state.
“Since FY2010, more refugees have been received in Texas than in any other state. In fact, over that decade, roughly 10% of all refugees resettled in the United States have been placed in Texas,” Abbott’s letter to Pompeo reads.
Despite Texas’ acceptance of refugees in the past, Abbott believes that enough is enough considering Texas has had to shoulder the burden for failed immigration policies for so long.
His letter states that Texas has been “left by Congress to deal with disproportionate migration issues resulting from a broken federal immigration system.”
“At this time, the state and non-profit organizations have a responsibility to dedicate available resources to those who are already here, including refugees, migrants, and the homeless — indeed, all Texans,” Abbott wrote. “As a result, Texas cannot consent to initial refugee resettlement for FY2020.”
There are lawsuits currently pending that would potentially overturn the President’s executive order. CAIR, a group that regularly raises funds for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), certainly hopes that those lawsuits succeed so they can flood America with the refuse of the third-world and put more sleeper cell legislators like Omar into office.

Tommy Tuberville Says “We Can’t Worry About China Right Now”
Even though they allowed the disease to spread.
Former football coach and Alabama US Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville said that “we can’t worry about China right now” in a radio appearance with Talk 99.5’s “Matt and Aunie Show on Thursday.
When asked by hosts about the implications of the global coronavirus epidemic on the United States’ relationship with China, Tuberville said, “Well, we can’t worry about China right now. We’ve gotta worry about Alabama and this country.”
Tuberville is currently running to represent Alabama in the United States Senate, although he’s been registered as a Florida voter in the past.
His comments on China policy will leave many Americans concerned with the nation’s role in the coronavirus epidemic unsatisfied. Certainly, containing the epidemic in this country is the priority, but a wide range of conservatives and China hawks have already begun to discuss the need to fundamentally reevaluate the United States’ relationship with China. The damage already inflicted upon American society and the global economy does present a pressing case that such a question is in fact urgent.
Tuberville is running for Senator, not Governor. He could be forgiven if he was running for an office not entrusted with high-level foreign policy responsibilities, but Senators in the coming months and years will be entrusted with developing China policy that recognizes the authoritarian communist nation’s role in allowing and covering up the global coronavirus epidemic.
Contrasting in stark fashion, Tuberville’s opponent for the Republican nomination for US Senate in Alabama, Jeff Sessions, has called for a congressional select committee to investigate China’s role in covering up the dangers posed to the world by the coronavirus, the virus’ origin in Wuhan, and potentially lying about the casualties incurred as a result of the disease in China.
I am calling today for Congress to immediately establish a Select Committee on China to lead the investigation. This Select Committee should be given the authority to wield the full investigative powers, including the power to compel witnesses, of the United States Congress.
— Jeff Sessions (@jeffsessions) April 1, 2020
If Alabama voters want a Republican Senator who is going to be tough on China, it doesn’t look like Tommy Tuberville is up to task.
