Tennessee’s Historic Lawsuit to Stop Migrant Invasion Will Be Heard in Appeals Court Next Week

The people of Tennessee believe it is unjust and unconstitutional for the feds to force them to resettle dangerous refugees into their communities

Although the tea party is far past its apex, the fights they started are still ongoing and driving the national conversation. A revolutionary Tenth Amendment lawsuit in Tennessee that has the potential to restore the rights of states to reject dangerous migrants from third-world countries is ready to be heard in the court of appeals.

“This case seeks to protect and vindicate the fundamental constitutional status of the State of Tennessee as a sovereign entity not subject to unconstitutional coercion and commandeering by the federal government,” the lawsuit reads.

“This suit is not intended to inflict harm on immigrants or refugees from any nation. Rather, this is a suit that seeks to preserve the constitutional relationship between the federal government and the states as mandated by our nation’s founders,” another excerpt from the lawsuit reads.

Attorney John Bursch of the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) will be representing the state of Tennessee and its General Assembly next week on behalf of state sovereignty and national security. He will be facing a 3-judge panel of the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. They aim to reverse coercive federal mandates forcing states to fund the refugee resettlement program, which they believe disregards the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution.

“Although Tennessee officially withdrew from participation in the federal refugee resettlement program in 2007, the federal government continues to commandeer state tax dollars to fund the federal program,” the TMLC states.

Previously, a federal judge in Tennessee dismissed the lawsuit in district court. Extreme leftist organizations like The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) were very pleased with the arbitrary ruling of the costumed lawyer.

“For years, a handful of legislators have led a quixotic campaign to harm refugees and end resettlement to the state,” TIRRC Co-executive Director Stephanie Teatro said in a press release. “Hopefully the dismissal of this shameful lawsuit will put these efforts to rest, allowing lawmakers to instead focus on real issues and solutions that strengthen our communities.”

They may have celebrated too early, as the TLMC is unleashing one of their best legal minds to work on the case. Bursch will represent Tennessee free of charge and has a storied history of successes and honors going back decades. He previously worked as Michigan state solicitor general and served as chair of the American Bar Association’s Council of Appellate Lawyers. He has argued 11 U.S. Supreme Court cases as well as 30 cases in state supreme courts.

“John’s integrity, outstanding litigation skills, and impressive record on appeals prompted me to ask him to join our fight. I can’t think of anyone more qualified to represent Tennessee and the constitutional principles involved in this case,” TMLC President and Chief Counsel Richard Thompson said.

The case will take place on March 19, and if liberal activist judges shamefully refuse yet again to uphold the law in this hearing, the next step for the lawsuit may be the Supreme Court.

Gray Wolves Spotted in Central California for the First Time in a Century

Wolves are traveling from Oregon to Central California.

Published

on

A gray wolf (canis lupus) has been observed in counties of California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range, with the animal returning to territory from which it’s been absent from for nearly a century. The GPS-tracked wolf, designated OR-93, has traveled south from Oregon, passing through Modoc County and Alpine County. Most recently, the wolf entered Mono County.

The journey of the young male wolf represents new territorial range from the species. Biologists believe it’s possible the wolf’s presence could result in the formation of new wolf packs in the Sierra Nevada region, should the animal prove successful in returning to the area with a mate. The wolf broke off from Oregon’s White River Pack southeast of Mt. Hood sometime within the past few months. Previously, wolves that ventured into California from Oregon didn’t travel south of Lake Tahoe, the single largest alpine lake in North America, that straddles the California-Nevada border.

OR-93’s historic trek so far south into California’s central Sierra Nevada is thrilling news for wolf recovery throughout the West,” said Pamela Flick, director of the California preservation group Defenders of Wildlife. “OR-93 also importantly brings the potential for increased genetic diversity to our state.

Wolves were dealt with as pestilence during the American settlement of the western United States, and the animals still pose a threat to the livestock of ranchers to this day. The animals were eliminated from the state of California entirely sometime in the 1920’s, and a gray wolf was seen in California for the first time in almost a century in 2011.

Wolf attacks on humans are extremely rare, although if the population is restored in Eastern California, farmers and ranchers will have to find deterrents for threats to their livestock. The presence of wolves in the region can serve as a benefit to the local ecosystem, assisting to keep the population levels of destructive animals in check.
