News 3 Channel reported that on Wednesday, December 18, 2019, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee announced that his state will continue accepting refugees.
Lee says that his government will provide “safe harbor” to refugees allegedly escaping persecution.
World Relief Memphis was one of the organizations that has advised Lee on accepting more refugees.
The organization is dedicated to resettling refugees and immigrants from across the globe.
“Last week, we got to go downtown to a naturalization ceremony and celebrate best friends we welcomed five years ago,” commented P.J. Moore, the Director of World Relief Memphis.
Moore’s organization has taken a lead role in advising Gov. Lee about the decision.
“President Trump signed an executive order that required the state department to create a process where states and counties need to give written consent to the state department that’s its OK for refugees to be resettled in their jurisdictions,” Moore stated.
Although some Tennessee lawmakers would like to exercise prudence, he’s deciding to continue accepting refugees.
“The United States and Tennessee have always been, since the very founding of our nation, a shining beacon of freedom and opportunity,” Lee declared in his letter to Lt. Governor Randy McNally and House Speaker Cameron Sexton.
He continued by stating that “my commitment to these ideals is based on my faith, personally visiting refugee camps on multiple continents, and my years of experience ministering to refugees here in Tennessee.”
However, the house speaker and lieutenant governor countered, stating their “personal preference would have been to exercise the option to hit the pause button on accepting additional refugees in our state.”
“It’s such a complicated issue,” Shelby County GOP Chairman Chris Tutor expressed. “It’s a prudential judgment how to balance that passion for people with concerns about safety, about assimilation. Your heart goes out to people, but you want to make sure we’re taking care of citizens first.”
Moore claims that the government already has seven layers of agencies vetting refugees.
One would expect a conservative state like Tennessee to exercise some restraint when dealing with refugee resettlement.
However, the immigration has shown that both parties are unreliable in trying to create an immigration policy that actually benefits American interests.
Ultimately, it will be up to grassroots activists at the county and municipal level to turn up the heat on their elected officials to make sure that their state will not be flooded by endless waves of migrants.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
